I have made it through my first official week of work as an instructor. I’m really enjoying work and the new challenges it brings!
Now I have the fun task of changing up my choreography and teaching new exercises! It certainly keeps me on my toes.
I feel like i never stop learning with The Bar Method! I love that.
We just had a training at our studio this past week for the next batch of instructors-in-training. My trainer, Jen Hertsenberg, came in to town to lead the proceedings. She really is phenomenal and had a great group of women to train. There were 4 girls from Orlando (all training in readiness for the new studio that will be opening in the Dr. Phillips area) and then 3 from out of town… San Diego, Covington, and Boston. Now the post-training fun and games begin!
In other news, we have finally had some rain. It has been so dry for months and months and this past week has been stormy and rainy. Trouble is, I am so spoilt living in the Sunshine State now that whenever we have more than 2 days of rain I get antsy!
G is enjoying her little summer day camps. She is excited about going up to the mountains to spend a few weeks with Grandma. She is such a joy to be around. I love my little buddy. I feel like I want to keep a video recorder constantly on her at the moment as we have the most amazing conversations and she comes out with both some of the funniest and most endearing things. I am always touched when people compliment me on her. The other day, a friend said to me (who doesn’t know about our past) “She is so cute! You guys cannot stop at just having her. You need to have more!” I smiled to myself and said in my heart “It’s not for the lack of trying.” There are days when my heart still aches. I often think about Henry and how he would be right now. I also wonder why I haven’t been able to get pregnant again. I can’t help but feel it is meant to be that way. I am such a firm believer in everything happening for a reason. Maybe we are not meant to have another child right now. Maybe we are not meant to have another child ever. All I know is that I just have to keep my focus on G. She is such an absolute blessing. I couldn’t wish for a sweeter, kinder, more loving, and special child. I feel guilty and selfish when I wish to have another baby. There are so many people out there who can’t even have one.
