Home

Well, Jason and I made it home. We are happy to be back. It was a full 30 hours of traveling with maybe an hour of sleep. Jason and I arrived tired but survived the trek. It was so great to see Liam at the airport and have him run and jump into my arms. I sure did miss my little guy and discovered that 7 days was too long. Anyway, he gave me and Jason some really great hugs. ;) Let me backtrack a little before moving forward... Our last night in Italy was a good one. Jason and I went into central Bologna to explore the area a bit since we had heard this area is quite spectacular. It was spectacular and am glad we went to see it despite being tired. Bologna is certainly a bustling place and the area we were in was full of grand, old buildings, lots and lots of shops and restaurants. I am sad to say that this was the most romantic part of our trip and the most time Jason and I spent alone the entire time we were in Italy. We walked around the city, had dinner, enjoyed some wi…

The Wall

I hit the wall today, Monday, and am ready to go home. I am not sure if my feeling blue has to do with missing Liam, lack of sleep due to the busy night life just outside our window, a desire to just spend time alone with my husband or simply a need to be around less people in general. Here's the thing I have discovered about myself, I am easily peopled out. Meaning, always being around people or doing group things makes me crazy in a very short amount of time. In fact, group stuff makes me anxious. I am someone that not only likes time alone but needs time alone. I have experienced very little of that and am at that point where I need to hide away a bit. So I think a little time alone on the beach and a practice by myself is in order and may be just the thing to help me regain my balance. We leave Riccione early tomorrow morning, so I need to make the most of my time in Riccione. We will spend most of Tuesday in Bologna. We hop on the plane to head home on Wednesday morni…

Italy

Well, we made it to Italy. It was a wicked day of travel with an hour and half drive to the airport, 9.5 hours on the plane, another 3 hours in the car, and 2 more hours on the plane before reaching Bologna to spend the night at the Sheraton hotel. Jason and I finally made it to Riccione the following day at around 2 in the afternoon. It was a full 24 hours of travel. As you can imagine, we are happy to be enjoying the beach town of Riccione. It was great to finally get to the hotel by the beach to relax. I still don't know what day and time it is. I haven't been able to use my cell phone and that has been interesting. It all feels so surreal. There is always plenty to eat and lots of wine to drink. Really, I don't know how the Italians do this sort of food and drink thing all the time. I suppose they are used to it all. Don't misunderstand, we are enjoying ourselves but keeping the eating and drinking thing in check. Today, I spent the day out exploring the …

The last week~

This morning I am sitting with the doors open taking in the fresh air. The sun's light is filling the house and the scent of lilies is wafting about. I love mornings like this when I can just sit with Liam and just listen to the birds sing their joy to the world. I am feeling better since my last entry. I feel like things are a little easier and communication is clearer since Mercury has gone direct. Surprisingly, I have really felt the effects of Mercury Retrograde this go around. I suppose that may be because this backwards flow of Mercury has been in the communication realm of my sign, Pisces. I am happy Mercury is moving forward again and that my life seems to be doing the same. Jason and I had a couple of days on our own since Liam went to spend the night with Jason's parents (a.k.a. Grandmum and Granddad). Liam spent the night with them and his cousin Jenna Friday night and Saturday night. His being away gave Jason and I chance to get some much needed rest and so…

Resetting My Mind One Minute at a Time~

Okay.... so this morning I am writing to get some clarity and to get my mind free. For some reason, whenever I write about what is on my mind and in my heart, I feel better. My mind gets a rest and writing these things down helps me stop the negative loop. By the end, my heart feels a whole lot lighter. Thank goodness for that! Last night was not good. It wasn't all bad either, though. The highlight of my evening was meeting a girlfriend for dinner. In fact, that was only the second time in 2 1/2 years that I have gone out on my own to meet with a girl friend. As is obvious, I don't get out much. Of course, this is another story altogether... Back to reason I am writing and the subject on which I wish to write about. Last night I had a friend and fellow yoga teacher attend my class and, well, it was not my best class. In fact, I felt it was pretty terrible. I wasn't myself all because I had a peer in class. This bothers me because this is not the first time hav…

Long Week~

Jason is finally home after a week of being away. It's been a very long week with long days and lots of ups and downs. It's not so much that I can't manage with Jason gone because I can and I do... with help from my folks. I feel fortunate and grateful to have my mom and dad living so near because Liam stays with them when I go to teach. What makes the time while he is away hard is not really having time for myself. This whole last week, Liam woke at about 5:30, sometimes earlier, and had a difficult time getting to sleep, so I didn't get out of his room at bedtime at the end of the day until around 9:45 p.m.. My only time away was to teach and then back home again to do what needs to be done. Today followed a similar trend. Liam did share with me this evening that his ear hurts so it seems an ear infection may have developed either following the cold he just got over or it may be due to the fall into the pool, which is a story for another time. Either way, this …
