I thought things would calm down after Christmas. After all, I'm out of college for a few months, all of our Christmas activities and parties are over, and everything should be settling down. I told myself I'd have time to read lots of books, deep clean and organize my house, start running again, and relax more..so what happened?
January has been chaotic for us! When you work at a gym, it has a tendency to be a busy month. Pair that with a death in a co-workers family, switching over to a new software program, and adding even more new classes to our new Zumba workouts, and it's been totally insane. It's a good kind of crazy - a "business is booming" kind of crazy - but crazy nonetheless. I'm coming home from work every night exhausted.
Actually, I'm beginning to wonder how I did anything else when I was in college...I think that's because I'm scheduling all the appointments and errands I put off during college. Long overdue appointments for the doctor and for new contacts and glasses, shopping for things we've needed for months, and generally playing catch-up on life.
I am trying to slow down and enjoy things a little more, though. I'm playing Band Hero (a family Christmas gift) with my kids (and playing some mean lead guitar if I do say so myself!). I have gotten a lot of reading done (when I should have been cleaning the house). And of course, I'm catching up on all those appointments. At least it keeps me occupied as I wait for those letters to go out from the dental hygiene program. March seems so far away right now.
