Long time no blogging...

Hi all,

It's been a while since I sat down to actually write something on this blog so here goes:

I have enjoyed the 3 day Labor Day weekend tremendously. RELAXATION to the MAX!
My little cutie starts 5th grade tomorrow at a new school and the tears and upsets in this house have been swelling in inverse proportion to the number of days left until school starts. Pray for my sanity.

Lots of family and friend drama (theirs not mine) swirling around me but I'm trying to stay sane and balanced throughout. I think I can, I think I can...

Still haven't managed to get one paid registration for the YogaEasy with Yolanda Pettinato upcoming workshop on October 10. Oh well, if no one participates I'll have Yolanda all to myself that day for a day of yoga and playing in Portland... ;-)

I want to publicly thank Kristina P., Kavita, Deanna, Sarah, Angela, VJ, and all the rest of my friends for continuing to support me and the Bernal family with your kindness. Forgive me if I'm leaving people out but I wanted to say "thank-you" to the folks who post, email, or talk to me regularly about this. It has been such a help.

Okay, my parents are coming over for dinner tonight and I've yet to figure out what I'm serving so I need to run but I'll try to post more regularly now that school will be back in session.

Giant hugs to you all,

Jan

I feel bad that I can't do more in the way of support!

I'm so glad you had a nice weekend. Good luck with school tomorrow!

Hi Jan, hope that school goes well (I'm sure all will be fine). Like Kristina I wish there was more I could do to help .... if there is, don't hesitate to ask. With love, A xx

I'm sure you will be happy when you have the first day of school behind you today. The anticipation is always worse than the reality.

Thank you for the thank you. I truly believe prayers do wonders towards providing peace.

I found you from SITS.

I too love yoga although I'm not a teacher...wish that I were.

Thought you might like my post "Defining My Mommy Blogging Journey" http://www.isdisnormal.com/2009/08/24/defining-mommy-blogging-journey/.

There is no doubt that yoga helps me to live calmly amongst my three boys.

Glad to find you.

Hi, Jan,
You reminded me of the time when my children were entering the 5th grade. It seems that they enjoyed school a lot more then than they do now. In those days there was lot less homework, I guess.

In about a week's time, my "little one" will be leaving for college. Now that's going to be a BIG change. I don't think I quite comprehend what that's going to be like. I'll find out then. One step at a time (or one breath at a time, as Simon says). That's what has helped me go through the big changes in life before.

Thank you for saying thank you! It's good to be appreciated. I owe you a lot more thanks for being a great teacher and a very caring friend.

Best regards,
VJ

I am certainly plaanning to attend Yolanda's workshop. So, it won't be just a one-on-one! Thanks a lot for arranging this workshop. It should be a rewarding one, judging by her video that I watched.
