The machines. You're like, okay, what am I doing here? How did you get past it? I did it. I did my own thing. I didn't worry about anybody else. This is for me. I have to love myself. And going together. I mean, that was another thing we tried to do a lot of this stuff together. And -- some days I don't want to do it. She's like, come on, mom. Other days, it's vice versa.
