Pretty Annoying Week

This past week or so has been really off the charts, pain-wise. I would like to blame it on the CLAM and the other stupid exercises I am supposed to be doing, but in all honesty I haven't been doing it as often as I am supposed to. Still, though, we are talking more knee pain in the past week than in the past several months. I went to class, anyway.  It adds another awful dimension to the deep hatred I have developed of assemblé.
Oh assemblé, I hate you so.

In other news I would like to share this bit of wisdom with you:
Never, after applying icy-hot/bengay/etc, no matter how much of a rush you are in to get to class, forget to wash your hands before using the bathroom.
Just... don't.
Trust me. 


  1. I love you, you make me laugh. I hate assembles too!!! Good advice on the pain ointments...although I am laughing.

    1. I know, right? Assemblés suck. It feels horrible and makes you look like a frog. Not elegant, not even a little.
      PS: I have been reading your blog, your dedication is pretty awe-inspiring!

  2. Thank you!! I have a lot of catching up to do...I feel very old at 37 years! You make me laugh out loud. I mean falling-off-chair-and-startling-the-cat laughing out loud. I adore you, I really do.

  3. Assemblés are TEH EVIL, sososo much hatred for them! I landed an entire changement-petite sissone-assemblé combination, every single jump on my foot the other night. Bleurgh!

    PS. Love your blog. Love it.

    1. Maybe assemblés are just there to test our dedication to ballet class?
      Thanks for reading! I need to go check out your blog, now! I made my first knitted ballet class shrug thing recently. I turned out to be the ugliest sweater I think I have ever seen...
