So the heinous month of July is FINALLY over…yay!!! However, I am now seriously ready for a long term break. I’ve started doing yoga again in order to calm my nerves and get rid of some stress, but it’s not doing the trick. Quilting just doesn’t feel the same anymore…[INSERT SHOCK FACE]…yes I know, that coming from me is horrid! I find myself taking an online class at work in order to “escape” work. Is that bad? I am seriously ready for a MAJOR change. I took a “promotional” test that I did NOT study for because deep down I feel like I don’t want to continue doing what I’m doing. Yes, I do have a job where I make a difference, my job offers me satisfaction in that department but, with that said, I don’t care anymore. So, B and I have decided that as soon as he’s done with school, I am going back to walk the halls amongst the youngins lol…No I am not going to quit my job…just yet, but I am going to try and finish up my degree.
I am beyond excited. So besides that big piece of news, I am seriously ready to leave next week! Yep, I will be going to the beautiful exotic land of….FLORIDA! hehehe, white sugar sand beaches, surf, seafood, and relaxin under an umbrella…sounds like heaven! And we will be away from here for a good week and a half…no work, no work drama, no drama, no STRESS, nothing…AMEN TO THAT! And when I get back, I’ve decided I am joining a yoga studio…yup, finally getting back to my practice! I started doing some of my old yoga moves at home and it has definitely put a pep in my step…I love the idea of stretching and working your body to the point of feeling like you’re slowly trying to rip your muscles apart in a warm environment….just ecstasy! :) Yes, I am one of those weirdos that absolutely loves to work out in hot weather!!! I love joggin in our lovely 112 degree summers ;) yes definitely psycho!
I want to try doing some hot yoga! Yup, HOT YOGA…I’ve never tried it before so this will definitely be a new experience! As for quilting, I’m still doing it but I have sooo many wips it’s ridiculous! I’ll be working on a baby quilt for a new member of the family, (B’s cousin had a lil girl earlier this month), and it’s PINK PINK PINK! :) I love it! I’m still working on that tshirt quilt for my friend’s friend. :( I can’t help but think of that poor kid every time I pick up his shirts…nope still haven’t gotten over it, but I will….eventually…
So the house is finally quiet….B is in bed, Bean is in bed…and here I am, typing away while I do laundry and smell the sweet aroma of a loaf of chocolate chip banana bread that is baking in the oven…I worked overtime today, a back to school event…I was inundated by little people and their angry parents :( No bueno! Alas, when I finally picked up Bean from my momma’s house I was ready for a time out…an adult time out…with frosty beverages! ;) Bean passed out on the way home (it was a long drive) and I enjoyed some tunes til we got home. Once here I made sure that I took full advantage and started cleaning…and cleaning…and cleaning….and…did I mention cleaning….Hadn’t cleaned like that in 2 months….I did the floors, dusted, did dishes (and found a gecko in the sink go figure!), and vacuumed…B got home after his shift and grilled some burgers, (love that man!), and now here I sit in bliss with a full belly, the smell of scrumptious chocolate chip banana bread and watching reruns of Sex and the City…can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring…but I must say good-bye for now…time to fold laundry and take the loaf out of the oven….good night y’all!
