Wow, I Guess I Took Some Time Off, Huh?

I had all but abandoned this little 'o blog. Thank you to the few of you who still pop by on occasion to inquire if I have come back to my senses and STOPPED WITH THE PITY PARTY ALREADY?!?!

Well, yes I have thankyouverymuch!

I was in a funk. A deep, dark funk. Not for any particular rhyme or reason.

But, now..... Now, I am much better.

What changed? No idea. I stopped letting shit bother me. I picked up my big girl panties and moved the fuck on. I got over myself by telling myself that I COULD sit here and wallow and let life pass me by OR I could change it and start enjoying life. Simple as that. Make a choice or don't. Completely up to me.

So, I started working out harder. I love to workout. It makes me feel GOOD. ALIVE. I found a ZUMBA school near me and I go 4 times a week. Oh, OBSESSIVE BEHAVIOR I HEAR YOU CALLING!! Whatever, it's better than the food. Can I tell you how much I fucking LOVE ZUMBA?? I love the music, the intensity, and the movements. I love the dripping full body sweat after that hour. I love how spent and alive I feel AT THE SAME TIME. And ya know what? I'm good at it. Who knew? If only I had spent less time in the smoking area in HS and more in modern dance!

I can shake my ass better than I ever thought this white girl ever could. And my body reaps all the benefits. I look better than I have in 15 years. I am leaner. I am more cut. I am STRONG. And I love ever minute, ever step and ever time I push myself that much farther than I thought I could. I am smiling just thinking about it.

Design work is busy, thank god. I am now teaching online at another Art College, as well as on campus at the 1st Art College. Kids are great. DH is great. All is right with the world.

Life is Sweet, Crazy, Chaotic and Back To Normal.

I hope you all are well. I am going to try to come back here and post a bit more often.

How are you all doing??
