Cranky pants

Today we went to eat with a few people from our Gospel Community. I got the Garden Hash. It was very good. But potatoes always make me crash. I'm serious.

We had made plans to play volleyball after lunch. I didn't want to, and I made that pretty clear. But I usually do what people want me to do, so I was going to go suffer through a few games and then sit out or leave. But then I crashed hard, fell asleep, and when it was time to go I flipped my poo, yelled at Tyler, decided I would go so I didn't ruin everyone's game, he said I wasn't going because... who wants to be around me when I'm like that..., then I said fine, and took a nap.

I just woke up, feeling groggy and light headed. I guess I can't fully blame potatoes :). I am struggling with balancing being polite and just saying, "I'm freaking hungry, can we please order now," or doing what makes everyone happy. Like, we had people over last night. I loved having them over. I kept thinking, "I could just sneak away and sleep, and no one would really notice," but I couldn't bring myself to do it until Allison said, "Why don't you go to sleep?" Ah. Permission. I love permission.

Here is some good news that I am very pumped about. I will be attending another yoga teacher training starting in September. Holy cow, not sure how I'll do it. But I'm going to. It's two full weekends a month, and I'll be going through December whenever the baby is born (it ends in February). At least it will keep me in shape a bit. It's the Yogahour Teacher Training. It's like a power-flow vinyasa style class, typically doing about 100 poses in an hour. Right now, in basics, I teach about 30-40 poses an hour.There's a lot more to it, but I'll just leave it at that. Darren Rhodes created the style. He's this normal looking husband and dad, who has really good things to say. I did a workshop with him last year, so I'm pretty pumped to hear more from him .

This is him

This training will allow me to teach Yogahour at my studio, even though I won't be officially certified since I can't finish the training this year. Which will be nice when I don't have a full-time job and I want to teach more often. I'm thrilled. And I think this training will give my brain the jolt that I've been looking for.

So that's that. I'm feeling better... only puking every few days. Can't really get rid of my deep voice or snot, but it's not as bad as it was. I sang this morning at church, and I pretty much had to yell at the end to get anything to come out.

I am looking forward soo much to going to Springfield/Tulsa in three days. We'll stay the night in Springfield with Dustin and Lacy, and then drive the rest of the way (the entire 2 and a half hours) to Owasso. I can't wait. We'll head back the Monday after July 4th, making next week a short week for me.

Lastly, I bought a dress and it is maternity. It accentuates the belly quite a lot.
