If you admit what you are about to do is hypocritical, does that make you less of a hypocrite? Because if it doesn’t matter, then I really don’t see why I should continue writing. If it does matter, then I am completely ok admitting I am a hypocrite as long as that means I’m really not.
I have been debating joining a gym I swore I wouldn’t join. It is the newest one in town and I thought it would have an amazing kids’ area, but it doesn’t. The drawings showed an indoor jungle gym area and so I was going to sign up before it was built. But then it opened with some toys and an xbox. The pool doesn’t have any water slides or anything either. I would be signing up just for me and right now, that is a stupid thing to do. If my kids are not happy with the gym, it is a lot harder for me to get to the gym. I swore I wouldn’t join this gym because it was too much money and they cut back on the kids area. They may not be the greatest reasons in the world, but they are mine and I am sticking with them.
The community center by my mom’s house has water slides and a huge children’s area. They have kids’ classes. They think of kids when they build instead of throwing a daycare in and having it be the first thing to cut back on if costs run high. (Huh. Sounds like I am bitter. Who knew?)
But there really isn’t a great gym daycare in town. They are all small without much to do. I was going to join a gym due to group classes, and the new one has a lot of classes. I would just go in the evenings when I am so sick of everyone in my family, I need to blow off some steam anyhow, but I was dragging my feet.
This morning, though, I got a NEW idea. I could join where my friend goes and her son and my son play together and everyone would be happy. In one week I went from joining the most expensive, nicest gym in town to joining the YMCA. I am a very versatile person. AND it means I’m not a hypocrite. It’s win-win- (and if I get in shape) win.
