This blog chronicles my life as I try to balance healthy lifestyle habits with my husband's penchant for pizza rolls and my daughter's desire to watch iCarly 8 hours a day. It contains a mostly humorous, kind, and somewhat spiritual look at everyday life and the people who live it.

What's behind Curtain #1?
Yesterday the curtain was open.
The locker room was packed: sweaty spandex and breasts and feet as far as the eye could see. I had no choice, I had to go back into the (open) curtained area because there was simply no room in the outer locker room. At first glance all appears normal: lockers, benches, you know, the usual locker room stuff. I relax a little as I sit down on the bench to change from street shoes to gym shoes. It's when I lean down to lace up that I see it. About the size of a saucer. Almost perfectly round. Still (gulp!) fresh. A puddle of pee.
Now look people, I myself have blogged about the power of exercise to inspire our waste removal systems, but I have never peed on the floor of the locker room. I know, I know, urine is sterile, blah blah blah, many women suffer from bladder control problems, yada yada yada, pee happens.
Still, nearly dragging my laces through it was a bit shocking (not to mention gross). I think I'll put a suggestion in the Suggestion Box that encourages the gym to put non-slip vinyl flooring in the locker rooms. And mops. And maybe they should change that curtain to a waterproof shower curtain, just in case someone gets a little wild.
If this is what is going on in the changing area, can you see why I don't want to set foot in the showers???
