First let me apologize for disappearing without even taking the time to explain my absence. That being said, it was for happy reasons. Stressful, yes, but also happy. Here is a very brief recap of what I’ve been up to. I promise more detailed posts later. I’m also hoping to gradually restart this blog.
In late Spring, my husband and I starting looking to buy our first house. It was a more intense, stress-filled experience than I expected. In July, we found our house. We looked at it twice in one day, put in an offer that afternoon, and had our counter-offer accepted that night. While incredibly excited for the next big stage in our life, this meant packing and cleaning. I hate packing and cleaning.
As luck would have it, our late honeymoon/family vacation was already booked for the week prior to closing on the house. On one hand, it was crazy to try to have everything ready before we left the country. On the other hand, it was the perfect break from everything. Mexico was AMAZING! We had a blast with my parents and loved getting away from work.
Looking back, moving wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. We got the main living areas painted and moved in all in one weekend. I spent the next week refinishing the kitchen (which I LOVE) and felt like I was painting every other day for weeks.
Then just as things were settling down, I got a job. Not just a job, but a step in the right direction for my career. Is it my dream job? No. But I’m loving it. I like the people I work with. I’m good at this. And I finally am back to a 8-4:30 Monday – Friday schedule. While that’s great for me, the hubs got moved to second shift. Which means we see each other for 2-3 hours on Saturday and Sunday. Yes, you read that correctly. We do not seeing other at all during the week. Since he is working weekends, we also doing see each other much then. I hate it.
I backed away from the internet at first because I was too busy, and then because I was too tired, and then because I had been gone for so long I didn’t know how to come back. This is the first step. Hope you guys know how much I’ve missed you and that even though I was quiet, I wasn’t gone. I still read a lot of your blog posts from my phone and cannot wait to reconnect with you.
I've created Imagine Balance to help document my journey to a more balanced life.
In yoga, balance is much more a state of mind rather than a physical ability. I want to imagine balance so that I can achieve it.
