I did YOGA for the first time!

I'm not sure why I haven't done it before maybe it was too healthy, lol!   Wow, on how I felt afterwards though.  I felt like I was walking on clouds and almost sang all the way home.  I can really get into this!

The class was hard only because my body wasn't used to bending, moving, and stretching in so many different ways.  Next week it will be better, right!  Also I need to work on right and left. Yes, I know my right and left but when someone is calling out stretch your right leg then put your left arm on right knee I get so confused.

The teacher, who is a friend of mine, did warn me I would feel a little sore today.  She was right.  I even took a couple extra minutes in the shower to let the massage hit my shoulders and back.  But I feel good and looking forward to going back next week.

I will have to read up on my YOGO JARGON though because I didn't know any of the poses the teacher was talking about.  I would look around the class to see what everybody else was doing.   What the heck is Downward Dog, Warrior, Half Moon, Cobra, Eagle and I'm sure there were more but I forgot them now!

I will be at Forest Yoga  with my girl Aviva-Breathe In Love  at 7:30pm next Tuesday!

    Kids and Homework- Oh My!

    I feel like I'm back in school and I have no idea WTF to do!  My 5th grader is bringing home math homework that looks foreign to us.  My husband and I both look at each other as to see who can help our child but we both know we can't.  It's straight crazy!  I'm thinking in the 5th grade either I was flirting with the boys too much or I actually got it back then.

    Last night it was my turn to help with homework so I looked at the page and just went blank!  I looked at the examples and them proceeded to do it, hoping I was right.  After going through the steps with my son at least 5 times he still didn't GET IT.  My patience by this time was gone because I feel he was using me to do his homework.  I gave him to his dad at this point, using the "I need to make dinner" excuse.  Dad didn't even understand so the child was left doing it on his own which ended up being 3 hours of "I don't understand" fit. He wouldn't even give it a try- he just wanted US to do it for him and I wasn't falling for it again!  We tried to reason with him and I think he was super tired but just wouldn't calm down.  At that point (it's 8:30pm  and we have been doing this since 4:30) I gave up and told him I would wake him up early so we can tackle it then.

    Why is homework so STRESSFUL!!!!
