WOW. Did you miss me? I know, I haven't posted since LAST Sunday, bad, bad blogger!!
There are a few reasons why:
1) Although I have had a ton of things going on, I didn't feel like talking about them. My week was a challenge and full of mental trials, it took most of my mental energy to stay on top of things including a work day that started at 5:50am & ended at 10pm, a garage sale I put together in about 48 hours and a FULL week of teaching and training! I could have blogged about deep pressing issues, it wasn't like I was lacking any! But I didn't have the mental energy to!
2) I was a little discouraged this week. For starters, I didn't go to swimming lesson #5 because I was so busy. Pool swimming is progressing nice, but I have been a little scared to do more open water. I can see myself improving in the pool and enjoying it. But I have learned quickly, I didn't anticipate the vast difference between learning to swim better and overcoming my fear of deep, open water. Both good things to tackle, an awful lot to tackle at one time, the summer I am getting used to a new schedule and new career. Sigh. We live. We learn.
3) I kind of needed a break. I started a new "job" this week as a resident manager of my apartment building which is wonderful because I am able to work out of my place taking calls, showing apartments as I work on my training business and group x classes. I spent a lot of times in the home office organizing, learning the ropes and showing the last few open apartments! I think I will really like having half of my work day be out of my apartment building.
In other breaking news, BOOT Camp for my local gals is going awesome! Today finished week two and I have been getting great feedback! The weather has been great, week one we had a run in with some bugs, but came today armed with yard fogger and deet! I have been trying to look the part, but I have had a few people suggest a whistle. Camo is IN for sure.
I also camped out in my HOOD on Saturday for a pretty impromtu garage sale which was EPIC. I wanted to get rid of a lot of excess I had and I did, so that was a success. I also unloaded all my BIG items which is key sice anything that didn't sell went right to charity!
Working on work at the sale!
Two HIPSTERS who practically fought over my sweet Magnum PI lap TV tray.
I can't believe I parted with it, they can't believe I owned and used it. Silly boys. But I gave them the benefit of the doubt since they were each rockin' the facial hair like Magnum.
I got to hang out with Cindy too. We went to Amazing Thailand in Minneapolis, I LOVE Thai food and theirs is the best!
It was great to see Cindy and to just unwind, dress up a bit and enjoy our night. My Mom reminded me this weekend to enjoy my days, that God wants us to ENJOY life and I realized that many days of the week, I am on the Go-go so fast or working at this or planning that, I forget to ENJOY. We get overwhelmed by details, deadlines and things we think we need to do. There is beauty in the details, God is a detailed God, but doesn't want us to lose our joy in achiving things in life! So, I decided to go out with my sweet friend and enjoy my night.
