Two New is Too Much

T pointed out to me last night that I have started two VERY BIG projects at the same time - one being Jazzercise & the other being the Volunteer Coordinator at J & R's school. I have been overwhelmed, upset, stressed out and crazy.

Beleive it or not, starting two big things at once is MORE STRESSFUL than dividing up two households to seven different locations/categories.

It's almost over (at least the newness of it all). When it is, I'll write more.

Getting Back into Shape

It's Saturday morning. T & J are working on replacing the downstairs television. R has a friend visiting. A & E are circling around somewhere. I have committed to lifting weights some time this morning, but haven't determined when.

I don't really want to. But I would like to have more muscle definition, and that doesn't come without work.

I have finally, after all summer off, managed to heal my knee and my foot. I am, thankfully, feeling strong enough to teach Jazzercise again, and confident that I won't re-injure myself. I am so incredibly grateful for my good health.

This is something I do not wish to take for granted. I notice how strong the mind-body connection is when I have to STOP doing the physical things that make up who I am. I have had to re-define myself over the summer (again & again). I am looking forward to dancing again. And feeling strong.

If you're here in Paris, maybe you'll join me. We dance; we sweat; we laugh. And we feel GOOD!

Can I get an "Amen!"?

School starts tomorrow for little boys. (Started last week for olders). Need I say more? Bonne Rentrée!
