I have been distracted the last week. Somewhat distracted that is. A week ago when I was breaking up with my yoga studio, I forgot my sports bra. $40 to them to practice as I couldn't leave with that lame excuse as they have sports bras for sale.
On Thursday, I had my car checked over. My mechanics are great. Very thorough and kind. I met a friend for coffee and had my whole day arranged. I picked my car up and headed to yoga. I had my change of clothes, towels, shoes, but no work out clothes. Awesome. I rushed home to grab some yoga attire and returned to the studio. Little things that sideline me because I am rushing around. If only, I had taken a few additional minutes to check my bag.
Yesterday, I woke up early to go to a new studio. I had a few free passes that I could utilize. I ensured that I had my yoga towel, a change of clothes and a few pairs of shoes. A few blocks from my house, I remember that my yoga mat is hanging on my clothes line. Crap!
I take the class from an instructor that I respect. I must leave to ensure that I have enough time to shower, grab a coffee and make it to work. The class was a nice balance of physical and spiritual. I leave a few minutes early to shower. The studio was inviting, warm and comfortable. Most studios offer amenities--shampoo, conditioner, soap. This studio did not. I was bummed about that as I did not come prepared with those things. However, I could make it work except for the temperature factor. The water never heated up. That sucked and sort of soured the experience. Thankfully, it was not a heated studio and so I wasn't as sweaty as normal. I would have returned home to shower and decreased my time to enjoy a coffee.
Anyways, I have been distracted the last few days. I know that I have expectations of what I would like to achieve before I head to Santa Fe. I want to spend time with friends and check out eateries that I prefer. I hope to see some friends this week and drink some of their cellared wine. I know that will be a treat and they offered to have me over.
I will attend a wine tasting on Tuesday and skip an opportunity to work. I want to enjoy some of the perks associated with my wine job before heading out and starting over. I will leave Saturday for the new adventure and begin work on Monday. I have a bowtie, black slacks and a blue button down shirt. Welcome to my new life of uniforms. I must purchase an iron and board to at least arrive presentable. I know that is a requirement of this job. Clean, pressed, presentable. Reminds me of my days at Fifi's in college. It will be interesting and a welcome change, for sure.
For the time being, I will attend yoga at a mix of studios and hike Camelback one last time, tomorrow, with my friend, Cody. I am excited!
Have a lovely Easter experience~
