I took my first yoga class EVER this evening and I'm not sure what I think. There was lots of deep breathing and holding of positions while doing the deep breathing. I must admit...I'm more flexible than I give myself credit for but with me being so ADD and not handling "quiet time" well all of the deep breathing and holding positions was very trying. I did feel like I got a work out in but could not quiet my mind like they wanted. I kept making mental notes of what I needed to do and focusing on the sounds outside and looking around to see what everyone else looked like. Oh, and I was suffocating in my own boobs half the time.

I decided to take yoga because let's face it...I'm overworked, overstressed, overweight and constantly on the go. I need to learn how to unwind and have some me time. I've got five more sessions so we'll see if I can get the enjoyment and yoga body I hear so much about.

P.S. Is it wierd that I hope I'm sore tomorrow?

Mark is Graduating!!!!

Mark your calendars now! Mark is graduating on June 19th!!!! We are so excited and I am soooo proud of him!! Sorry for all of the "!" but I'm just so darn happy!! Of course now he says he may want a Masters degree. I'm not so sure since I'm ready to finally have my husband back but one can never go wrong with education. :)

I've told him I'm sending out announcements and he's thoroughly embarrassed by the thought but I don't care.

Boeing Layoffs

I have received numerous phone calls and emails asking if I will be affected by the Boeing layoffs. The answer is no...for now. Boeing plans on laying off 10,000 people this year and employs approximately 160,000 people world wide. With my clearance levels and skill set, it's not likely I'll be in that 10,000. Of course one NEVER knows especially in today's economy. Thank you for thinking of us!
