Day 1 of Yoga

Wednesday, June 15, 2016

So I'm a stay at home Mom with two kids in school and yet I find it hard to find time to exercise! There is a lot to do and with an Airline Pilot for a husband I am usually doing it on my own. Between doing online work for my parents Farm and all the housework - you know it all to well, and my 'hobbies' baking cakes to order and (not proud of this one) facebook and netflix sucking my time away all to often, there's not much actual ME time left. Sure facebooking and Netflix are my relax times, but they don't exactly re-fuel like some real R&R would, do they.

Anyways, today I did Yoga again finally, and I did miss it so much. I was apprehensive about starting back up after quitting classes last fall after my Yoga instructor who was also a friend and my brother's girl friend, my parents intern and farm volunteer for three years broke up with my brother, and the farm and quit our family cold turkey...and me. I was heart broken, although not nearly as much as my brother who I nursed back to a happier mindset until very recently, and I could not get myself to go to a yoga class at the studio where she taught. Not only were the classes that fit in my schedule the ones she taught, but my three month unlimited plan had just expired and so it was a perfect excuse not to go to the studio anymore. And, doing yoga just reminded me of her way too much, for so long. Finally I feel like I am in a place where I can put those feelings aside and take care of myself. And get back into a condition where I can attend a three day yoga festival! emoticon

    I need to do yoga--I love it when I've done it, but I don't do it often enough. I'm sorry about the ex-girlfriend thing. I imagine that the ex's of brothers feel like part of the family. (My brother now has an ex, but to be honest both he and she are jerks so I frankly don't feel a lot of emotion lost for either of them ... AWFUL! I can't believe I just wrote that! GAK!)

    When is the yoga festival? And where are you doing yoga to get ready for it?
