    That should be Lululemon’s motto: “We help you go to an even deeper place inside… inside your wallet” ;-)

    Good morning, Cathy clan!
    Glad you all are okay, sis! I totally will be staying on Cathy! I will go absolutely loco if I don’t have internet access! And considering that my husband is a techie, I’m sure it will be a priority for him also. Granted, I’m assuming that it’ll take a week or so to get it up and running (and to dig out the computer), but that’ll get worked out.
    You’re right, Teresa! I already say gracias with a lisp the way they do in Spain because we’ve been going there for 14 years, and of course my husband is a native so it’s no problem for him. I’ll just have to pick up the lingo and take some classes to refresh my poor memory, and hopefully my daughters will learn a lot faster than I will.

    I’ve never understood paying a lot of money for clothes to sweat in.

    Oh my goodness! I didn’t realize that 1. y’all had been there before and 2. your husband’s from there.

    My high school Spanish teacher took a trip to Spain for a couple of weeks as it had been her lifelong dream.

    When the Intercom in the Airport called her name, she didn’t recognize it.
    ‘Sue Cousins’ came out sounding like
    ‘Suu-ee Cah-uu-seens’.

    There will always be an enterprising business eager to ‘help’ the self-conscious person trying to exercise, and worried that she (usually a she) won’t fit in to a class in just ordinary ole sweatpants

    Oh, I didn’t know that! Yes, my husband was born and grew up in Spain, and moved the US in his late 20s. He originally moved for work, but then we met (we used to work for the same company) so he decided to move here rather than CA. We got married the next year, and the rest is history. ;-)
    We try to visit once a year, but it gets more difficult as our kids get older. In fact, my kids’ have dual citizenship and have both US and Spain passports. So, our girls are used to the long flight over, are used to the food, but unfortunately don’t speak or understand Spanish (I truly did try hard to make my husband speak Spanish to them).
    So, the transition for us will be easier than for most people, and of course my husband is the most excited. The girls will most likely be upset for a little while (we haven’t told them yet), but will adjust eventually. It will be hard for me, although I do understand most of what they say (the slang and the speed is what trips me up) and I’ll get used to things also.

    That’s funny about your Spanish teacher! That was one of my few requirements when I chose my kids’ names… they had to be easily pronounceable in both countries. For example, I liked the name Jane, but that wouldn’t work well, and it’s difficult for them to say my niece’s name, Hailey. It was not easy for hubby and I to agree on names because what is normal in the US sounded weird to him, and vice versa.

    Why is Cathy looking to [possibly] spend $365 on a tank top, shorts, shawl [what in the world is that for?], and flip-flops in an expensive mall store just to do yoga [an activity she’s probably going to do once — maybe twice — before she gives up and never does it again] when she can get comparable items just like them for a whole lot less in a store like Walmart? Logic should tell anyone with even half a brain that yoga isn’t going to be that much better dressed in expensive clothing anymore than it’s going to be worse dressed in less-expensive clothing. It’s just going to be whatever it’s going to be. But then, this IS Cathy we’re talking about so . . . there you go!


    Hi, rgcviper!


    lightenup: Do you know yet when you might be leaving?


    Hello and Happy Monday, fellow “Cathy” fans. Hope everyone had a really nice day today.

    I weigh a lot less than Cathy but I wouldn’t be caught dead trying to do yoga in any of those clothes — and neither did any of the folks I went through teacher training with. Yoga is a lot more than just sitting around in serenity poses — and when my leg is in the air or I’m upside down I don’t really want the guy behind me looking up my shorts, or for my skimpy top to be falling over my head and leaving nothing to the imagination. Most folks wear pants at least to the knee and a top that stays in place.

    I think not, Nut-Job sales clerk.
