today is not only the first day of the week (monday-i love),
and not only the first day of the MONTH!! (welcome MAY)
it's also the first day of my 35th year of life.
i totally love new beginnings... a chance to let go the old stuff, and look ahead- plan and be excited about the next series of challenges and opportunites!
april was a huge lot of work, pressure and stress. full of good growing experiences. things i am happy to have behind me! i'm ready for a new month, a new year!
i have been contemplating where i am, where i want to be... how i am going to get there.
it excites me.
i have to tell you... i am liking the morning thing (GASP!)
saturday, i woke up at 5:15am with NO ALARM CLOCK. go figure!
feels good to take control of the day. i am tired no matter what, i think that psycologically, i feel like i am getting more done, i am more in control. Sunday, i did sleep in til 9:30am. - and took a nap. but it's a day of REST!
i taught here locally, at Scrapbooks ETC. on saturday. it was fun to just do a regular class... no big event... nothing fancy... only 30 people, only 15 minutes from my house. it was good! taught about how to use masks, and- well, i love masks, and they are so easy and fun to use, so it's a little thrill to teach! especially, the spray paiting part... so fun to show people how to spray paint!!
jodi made redvelvet cake for my birthday, so we shared a little of that! yummy! thanks jodi!
i got a couple LOUNGES for the pool for my birthday... comfy ones, with padding. and finally got the wireless internet extender, so i can work by the pool! (rough life)... and eric gave me a video ipod... supposedly it holds 75 hours of movies.... interesting! i think i am going to be fighting with my kids over it. soooo, it was a great day! SO low key, which was exactly what i needed ! my folks came down from SLC, we BBQd and made homemade icecream (another all-time-fav)........................
here's to a great NEW year for me... ! lots to make happen!
thanks for all the happy birthday wishes!
