I joined the YMCA. Still a little more than I wanted to pay for what will end up being a basic gym & babysitting service for me. But I figure, this way, I've paid my membership to work out, I won't have to worry about finding a babysitter if I want to go at random times...when a teen sitter might not be available (who I'd have to pay!), or when my mom is working (who is FREE!). Plus, it means the kids get to use the really freakin' cool aqua center. It's pretty rad.
