Hello! I have been gone for quite some time. I always think I'm the busiest possible and then I add some new thing to my life and I'm EVEN BUSIER but I think I need to bring blogging back into my life to force myself to relax. I never ever relax. I never have time to myself to just sit back and do nothing. My mind is always buzzing with a million to do lists and I'm always running late for some activity or another.
I'm not really sure if I mentioned my life changes before so here they are. I know longer am a stay at home mind during the week and then just working at a bar all weekend. I now teach preschool full time during the week and then work at the bar Friday and Saturday nights. I work around 60 hours a week, sometimes 70. AHHHH!
I leave for work every morning at 8am and then get home around 8-9pm. That's Monday through Thursday. Friday I worked 830am-3am. Ouch. Then Saturdays I usually work like 4pm-3am. Sundays I sometimes work and sometimes I don't. But when I don't I always have numerous activities for Lyla to do or family obligations... since it's my only off day.
ANDDDDD, I also joined a gym. And not just any gym, Lifetime Fitness. A wopping $150 a month and it takes up like all of my free time. Besides Lyla's real gymnastics class that she does once a week at a very fancy important gymnastics place here, she also attends classes at our new gym. She does gymnastics there, all types of dance, yoga, karate, sports skills, art, music, Spanish, swimming lessons, etc. They are actual 45 minute classes she attends while I'm working out. We go 5-6 days a week and she takes 1 or 2 classes per day after school. I mostly take spin, yoga, or have personal trainer sessions but once I'm in better shape there are tons of classes I want to try. We seriously never want to leave. We even shower there most days as it's basically a spa.
So anyway, we are busy. But I NEED TO MAKE MORE DOWN TIME. I need to put away laundry right when it's finished, I need to use my oils again, I need to clean my room, I need to swap out Winter for Summer clothes, I need to take more photos, I need to edit and upload Christmas Day photos, etc.
This is all what I have been up to and why I've been missing. Teaching is fun, but a lot of work even outside of the classroom. Lyla is engaged in so so many activities and the happiest girl alive.
Here are our Christmas photos and her Pre-K photos taken at the end of 2015!
Can't wait to come back to this space again and write some real things. And I can't wait to actually dive into reading all of your blogs again too!
