Keeping Busy

I have been given a new opportunity to learn how to teach yoga. It is a progam they are doing at my gym and I am one of eight people selected. I am excited for this three-month program to start. I might have my own class as early as June.

In the meantime I have started teaching Bellydance, which inspired the launch of my bellydance blog. I have been teaching and performing again. This time I am doing it on my own terms. I am very focused and inspired. I have some new students and some returning students in the all-levels class I teach at the gym. I might also start teaching an intermediate class at another location every other week. I just have to see what the draw is.

David had spring break last week and took advantage of the time to relax, catch up on some house maintenance and even put his name out there for some IT jobs. There aren't a lot of places hiring right now, but he won't be done until December with his Networking degree, so mostly he is just scouting it all out. He has gotten some positive feedback which is encouraging. I think everyone is just waiting to see what happens with the economy. We would really like to stay in this area but we are open to moving if we have to. David's degree is an investment in our future and we will go where that leads.

The weather hasn't really allowed us to do much work on the outside of the house, but the garden is starting to wake up from the winter slumber. We look forward to doing some work out there on the next sunny weekend.

We had a great visit with our friends, the Millers. They were in town visiting their families and we were blessed to be albe to spend time with them. (I really need to start remembering to take pictures!)

My brother is in boot camp right now and we have been sending him letters. It is a hard time for him because of the intense training and having to be away from his pregnant wife and step-daughter. They eagerly await his return and we offer them as much support as we can. They could use your prayers to get through this tough time, if you are so inclined.

My prayers are offered for your brother...and his wife and children. :-)

Thank you. I know you understand what they are going through.
