This morning I went to a yoga class. It was so freakin' awesome, I went to a class taught by the same teacher who taught my prenatal yoga class and I absolutely adore her. It was the first time I have seen her since the night before Eloise was born. How time flies! It was weird to be in that space again, doing yoga, with the same teacher, listening to the same music, even. All without the belly! I was thinking that the prenatal yoga classes were the only good part about being pregnant (well, and the baby I got from it, of course-- ha ha!).
This afternoon the girls and I met our friends for another walk around Greenlake. It was sprinkling/misting a bit, very typical Seattle weather. I love walking around the lake because it is such a great workout. I get to enjoy conversation, be outdoors with the girls and get my butt in shape at the same time. I feel like I'm finally making some new friends which is really exciting for me. I have the worst time making new friends. I wish I knew why, but it's really, really hard for me to connect with other people most of the time.
I'm trading babysitting with another family and at first I was a bit nervous about taking on the responsibility, but now that we've already traded once and I got some mama time out of it, I am thrilled with the set-up. I am excited that I can finally leave the girls and take some time out for myself once in a while.
So, I suppose I probably should have titled this post "The day that left me wiped-- and totally revived."
