Went back

to yoga yesterday after a 4 day break, and all the stress I've been feeling this week just melted away.  I was even able to get all the way back into two sets of camel.

It really works guys and I've said it before, but I can't recommend enough.

The hardest part is making it to class.....

I don't know about you guys....

but I think I was being punished for having Monday off as this week was kind of a week from hell.

Lots of client drama and was just one thing after another.

I didn't even have a chance to finish most of my paperwork which is so not like me. (And of course I'm stressed about that ;)

I've had random family call me crying about stuff, clients falling, making serious accusations about issues, saying they weren't taking their meds, fighting and even threatening to go blow things up.  Throw in some aide nonsense and just general lack of space and problems over that...yeah, this week I'm so glad it's over.  

I have to take a day off this comingTuesday to take my son to an appointment that has already been rescheduled....I'm kind of afraid of what I'm going to walk into on Wednesday.

I'm also super stressed about an issue that we seem unable to resolve....clients keep coming in early and we can't supervise them, which of course is leading to problems. I'm really feeling backed into a corner and may just need to say they can no longer come.

I haven't been to yoga since Monday, but I am definitely hitting my mat this weekend!

Any similar stories you want to share to make me feel better?

Happy New Year everyone!

I haven't really been into writing lately.

I think because December always seems to be a pretty stressful month, with just getting through the holidays, spending ridiculous amounts of $$$ and being there for people who are often not in the mood to celebrate.....including myself ;).

I do like to look at January as a fresh new start however, and an opportunity to re-visit what I would like to accomplish.

My personal goals are pretty simple....take more time to play with my son (we both need that connection, if only for 10 minutes a day), finish some of our house renovations (DH ripped out most of the first floor this past week), get back on track with my spending/saving habits (been terrible lately) more yoga (at least 3x a week....always makes me feel better).

I have to drop some weight too, but I'm going to focus on small, easy changes like bringing salads for lunch.

I think these goals are realistic and manageable.

What goals are you looking to complete in the new year?

Any tips you have for me with mine?
