The last time I participated in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) was in 2012, when I first created this site. Four years go by fast! Besides catching up on posts I had intended to share long ago – like the rest of our Spring road trip, HA! – I’ll share bits from my yoga classes, how this yoga teacher thing is going, ways I’m finding yoga pop up in my life, SXSW excitement, parenting, [probably] a little about the election, life after death and whatever else November may offer.
So, we had a fantastic Halloween over here. Last year, neither of my boys wanted to wear their costumes and go trick-or-treating. They were both fully into it this year, although the Big Kid got spooked watching Ghostbusters (the original) the other night and has been facing a healthy fear of creepy stuff and the dark.
My teaching schedule is keeping me super busy. There are days where I cannot believe that I’m actually doing this yoga teaching thing as my career. This time last year, I had only a couple public group classes and attempted to create my own classes by renting space. There were more than a few freak-outs about whether we could even AFFORD for me to not work a corporate job or what life as a stay-at-home-mom would’ve been like (um… NOT for me).
Now, I feel like I’m in constant hustle mode, dropping off kids, getting cross-town between teaching gigs, planning classes, putting together playlists, emailing, social media-ing, managing the household, etc. I don’t miss the office life, although I do miss having chunks of quiet time to think and work. I’m constantly working now, but it’s amid the chaos of my kids. I can’t just plug in headphones like I used to do at the office, and people would leave me alone. 😉
Speaking of kids not leaving me alone, I have the monumental task every Tuesday of trying to get Bear Shark down for a nap. My kids sleep GREAT for everyone except for us. Hope y’all enjoy these bite size blog updates this month! Leave me Likes and Comments; it makes me feel validated. Haha!
