The Yoga Sub, Projects and Family Reunions


This, has been a week.  My good yoga teacher friend, decided to take a little trek to Sante Fe, NM to take some classes with a great teacher.  I took from him once, when he came to St. Louis.  He has vast anatomy knowledge and had a way of teaching it that made everyone want to stay awake!  She’ll be back today.  Good deal.  I taught 4 extra classes this week.  I’m feeling 41, probably because I am.   Since I lost my great yoga job at the City, I haven’t been teaching in the evenings.  So, I subbed 3 nights in a row, on top of my normal gigs.  Last night at the Y were two classes, back to back.  Whoa.  The first one Level One, second Level Two.  I left there feeling like I gave the Level One class more than I did the Level Two.  I was drained.  Not just from the teaching.  My kids are way busy.  We had 3 swim parties and a sleepover, a trip to Silver Dollar City (not me, the kids) the laundry, the grocery store, the usual with extra running.

I didn’t ride my bike to class last night.  I rode it yesterday to MSU to teach at noon. #1- I’ve been saving some gas and it’s good for me.  #2 – I got a parking ticket that will cost me $23, wow.  I’ve never purchased a parking sticker for the summer, but I guess I will now!  To make matters worse, she was placing the ticket on my windshield as I walked up to my car.  That’s a drag. There were only like 12 cars in the whole lot, plus I’m only over there for like 90 minutes, sheesh!

My glass tile arrived yesterday.  In order to get like 3 sheets of glass tile, search ebay or the internet for other sources.  A specialty tile store here in town, let me know I had to order a case of this crap if I wanted some.  Puhlease.  They are a TILE store, they should have this stuff all over the place!  I’m thinking, remnants, returns, you know what I mean?  But no.  So, the glass tile I got from the internet shows up.  It’s gorgeous, shimmery, iridescent and, well, very yellow.  It was called Pale Ale, I’m thinking beer not lemonade.  I have to return it, not enough contrast for what I’m trying to do.  So, I think I’ll try this instead.

It actually looks like gray/black slate when the light isn’t hitting it.  It’s on ebay, and cheaper than the other tile I just ordered, go figure.  I can’t imagine doing my entire backsplash with glass and being able to actually afford it!  This stuff can run up to $30 a square foot, but you know, I teach yoga.  Not the highest paying career in the world.

Speaking of yoga, I teach in 45 minutes, so I’d better get with it.  After teaching, we are off for the weekend to Bolivar, MO to the huge Campbell Family Reunion – my husband’s side.  I will try to control myself while we are there.  All we do is sit around, talk and eat.  I do bring my yoga mat to this thing, every – single – year.  Enough said.
