Hello again! I know it’s been ages since the last time I blogged. I actually have several good excuses this time:
- I was distracted by our FOUR MONTH LONG bathroom remodel. That project that we started in August — was finally finished last week. (Thankfully, it’s been a functioning bathroom for the past month, but still. That’s a long time.) I promise to fill you in on all of the ups and downs, but it deserves its own post.
- During the summer and into September, I taught a ton of yoga classes and picked up some extra massage shifts on top of my day job and the bathroom project, so … for eight weeks, during the little free time I had, I pretty much zoned out in front of the TV.
- When I finally felt the inspiration to sit down and blog, my site was down! I couldn’t access the site, and somehow got locked out of my account with the hosting company, so it took some time to sort that out.
But, as promised in my last post, I will be back with regular posts … at some point. And maybe this time will be different. As in years past, my first post of the new year details my resolutions, and my number one this year:
Stop watching TV on weeknights. I’m hoping that in the time that is suddenly not sucked up with Netflix binges and channel surfing, I’ll start doing things that are worthy of being blogged, and spend more time writing (among other things.)
I’ve often wondered where all my time goes, and why I never have as much free time as I think I will. Well, I figured it out. And I figured out where I’ll find the time to listen to the podcasts that are backed up on my phone, and practice my piano, and do yoga or go for walks, and keep up on chores and cook regularly.
To be honest – I’m nervous about this. The most difficult part will be the 15 minutes after I get home from work, and I’m worried that a day will come when I’m tired and forget and one bad day will lead me to give up on this. I was also concerned about how I’d keep up with the Mariners once baseball season starts … when I remembered that they also broadcast those on the radio. I’m just so attached to my TV remote that I forgot about that.
(I *may* allow myself the exception of turning on a Pilates DVD that I really enjoy, but perhaps sticking to youtube videos will be better, knowing my tendency to slide down slippery slopes.)
Finish yoga teacher training homework. I’ve checked off a couple of boxes on the list of homework since my training program ended last January, but I still have a few projects to do that I’ve been ignoring. Another thing I can do when I’m not watching TV 😉
Well, that’s all I have for today! You can expect another post from me later this week with a look back at 2015.
