I've decided to start walking again at the gym and purchased a new pair of jogging pants to wear. Problem was, as are most long pants and even long skirts, they were inches too long on me :-(. So tonight I pulled out my serger, ruler, and sewing machine. After chopping a surprisingly small 4 1/2" off, I serged the raw edge and then turned them up about half an inch and seamed into place. Now I have a decent length pair of jogging pants to wear on Thursday :-).
Note about the gym - it is a ministry outreach of a local Baptist church. Annual fee is $25 if using only the walking track For an additional $25 ($50 total) you can use the workout room. I joined back in the summer, went a week or two, missed for VBS, then they closed a week for annual maintenance, and then school started and I began taking a friend's daughter to soccer 2 nights a week. School's done and soccer's over, so I now have my M, T, and Th nights to myself and can start going again. (Well most Mondays - some I'll have Bible Study with the Forerunners.) Since it's a ministry outreach, the gym respects church hours (yeah!) and is closed on Sundays and after 5 pm on Wednesdays. The other weeknights, it is open until 9. It is also open until 2 on Saturdays.
Since this pair hemmed so easily, I may stop by the store later this week and buy another pair so I'm not constantly doing laundry.
