Long Time…

Yeah, it has been!

I’ve got like a million excuses to share with you but the truth is that I have pink eye and haven’t been to work in the past 5 days!  Although pink eye is no joke (and no fun), it forced me to take a mini staycation.  Let me tell you…I woke up Wednesday morning with a swollen eye lid.  I’ll spare you the picture but let’s just say it was Quasimodo like : )  Thankfully, I got into the eye doctor quickly who confirmed my suspicion…pink eye, but he was undecided on viral vs bacterial (due to my recent cold).

‘What do you do?’ the eye doctor asks me after examining my eyes.

‘I’m a pediatric physical therapist’ I respond.

‘That’s a problem’ he says.  You’re telling me!

‘Oh and I teach yoga’ I add.

To which he asks me ‘Don’t you just do it all?’

‘Sometimes I feel like I can’ I say and he laughs!

So pink eye is highly contagious and it is frowned upon to pass along your contagious diseases to kids, so he tells me no work until Monday.  Ugh…he says he’ll write me a note.  Well, at that point, there’s not much you can do.  I get on my phone and begin canceling work, private yoga sessions, workshops, kids yoga classes, and a trip to the burbs to visit my niece.  Which basically gave me a 5 day staycation. 


The good news is that I do own a pair of public-appropriate glasses and pink eye can only spread if I touch people.  So after throwing all our towels, pillow cases, and blankets into a hot washing machine, 24 hours later I headed into the world for a workout. I met my SIL at barre.  Afterwards, we grabbed coffee to enjoy during our pedicures.  Then we shared a huge tub of popcorn at Beauty &  The Beast before making a stop at the brand new and beautiful Whole Foods that just opened this week.


So many (cheese) possibilities…


Since my hubby was working a ton, I even had time to squeeze in a bubble bath!


I mean, if you have to take vacation time, you might as well enjoy it!!!  Friday and Saturday were a mix of catching up on my DVR, working out, March madness, yoga planning and coffee drinking!


So I really have no excuse for not blogging…But here I am now! 

Other Updates…

-I am teaching 1-2 adult yoga classes a week and loving it. I’m not smooth with my wording but am working hard to create fun and unique classes that challenge my students.  Since my family is about 1/2 of the class, afterwards, they typically come over for midweek dinner, drinks, and laughter!

-I am also teaching kids yoga and have a few different age groups including the most adorable group of 2 year olds who every time they say Namaste, my heart smiles!

-Cooper is still Cooper, into everything, waking us up each day begging for breakfast, and napping in my arms. I actually think it is quite possible that he is involved in the pink eye situation as I fell asleep on his belly (even drooling on him) the night before I woke up with a swollen eye.

-I joined a volleyball team and play almost every Thursday night.  I’m also doing a lot of yoga and barre and actually went for an outdoor run last week which was fabulous!

-Last weekend, we went down to the St. Louis area for a visit with friends which was a BLAST!


-The BOY is getting sick…and you all know how men are when they are sick…Just keeping my fingers crossed he doesn’t get pink eye!!

-We are still meal planning!  Check out this week…
