I had a dream that I was in gymnastics again! What surprises me is that I still remember the floor routine from elementary school. When I woke up, I laid there trying to play the routine in my head and saw it clearly and perfectly. Nowadays, I can barely do a forward roll let alone a round-off backhand spring. Ahhh... I miss those days!
I am going to contact my old gymnastics instructor to see if he has any videos (on VHS, of course) of any of the old practices or meets. I would LOVE to see them.
I had THE best childhood ever. Sure, there was hardcore child labor in there (if you only knew), but it was what made me into the person that I am today. That story could take forever, so I will save it for another day. But even with the labor and the occasional abuse, I still had the best and most balanced childhood I can imagine.
Sometimes, I wish that my children could live my childhood. I know that with the technology and difference in lifestyles now, it wouldn't be possible. But, if only they could, I would document every little thing because it would be a great story to tell.
