Seriously, the thought of going back on Monday is giving me major anxiety. Like, curl into the fetal position and try not to cry anxiety.
I swear, I'm worse than the students.
2. On Monday it was so nice here in southern California (it's been nice all week, like 80+ degrees nice, and some of my friends have the audacity to complain that it's too hot for January. Can you believe that nonsense? I certainly can NOT) that the husband and I took little Gunner to the beach to run around. Gunner absolutely loves playing in the sand.
Anyway, I took a few cute pictures of the boy, and I figured everyone needed to see them. (I posted these on Twitter on Monday, but, you know, I'm a proud mom.)
If cuteness could kill...
You better not need saving, he hates the water
I've been having the best time with my little guy over break...taking him to the beach, taking him to the park, buying him lots of rawhide chews. I know he's going to be just as sad as I am on Monday.
3. Another thing I've been doing great with over the break is getting back into the groove of going to the gym. My schamncy new gym has awesome classes that are super small (Wed. night's class had five people in it) and I am just loving all of the different types of classes that are offered.
By far, my favorite is this class called Hustle. It's just hip-hop dancing. Not even cardio-style dancing like Zumba...actual hip-hop dancing. IT IS SO MUCH FUN. I used to dance back in the stone ages and I loved it and I still miss it every now and then. I've lost every bit of coordination I ever had, but this class is still so much freaking fun. The hour goes by in the blink of an eye,
I just wasted like 45 minutes searching videos of Hustle classes on YouTube to link here so you can see what it's all about. I was going to link to videos my my actual instructor, but I don't need any of you showing up in my class (heh), so I found this bad-ass chick instead.
So. Much. Fun. Makes me actually NOT hate going to the gym, which is something I never thought I would say.
4. Last night a shiny new idea popped into my head, complete with so many details that it actually shocked the hell out of me. I'm not the kind of person to just come up with new ideas out of the blue. Ideas rarely visit me. But BAM. There it was...a different version of something I have been trying to make work in the back of my head for about six months now.
I opened up a Google doc to just write down all the details, drop in a few helpful links, and expand on a few ideas. You know, so I don't forget about it for later. Then, before I even knew what happened, I had a new Scrivener doc open and 1300 words written. Just to see what happened.
Dang sexy idea. You need to go away. Although...I'm not all that far into my other thing. Hm...
NO JESS. FOCUS.
(Yes, this is what five minutes inside my head is like. Doesn't it sound like fun?)
5. I know I'm not supposed to care about these things, but I couldn't help but be super excited when I realized I passed 1,000 Twitter followers. I have no idea how that happened, but it thrills me to no end. Especially when it came up at the NYE party I went to and everyone was in awe of my follower count. I have to admit, I felt a little cool. Yes, I have over 1,000 people paying vague attention to the random things I say online, and half of them are probably porn bots, but who cares. Everyone at this party is jealous. Haha.
Yeah, it's the little things. I'm telling you, it takes so little to get me excited. This is why I am always having so much fun.
Okay, everyone...enjoy your weekend. I know I'll be enjoying my last weekend of freedom before heading back to work on Monday. WAAH.
