In other news, went back to the gym recently. I had taken a few months off. After the boot-camp I did, I think my body's engine gave out. Er, burned out. At any rate, I still worked out, just not at the gym. I walked or took in a cardio class here and there. But mostly, I walked. In the park, in my neighborhood, around downtown, during lunch time. Oh don't worry, I stayed hydrated if I was outdoors and just in case, I had my "In case of emergency" card, strategically placed on the inside of my sock. You know, for
heatstroke or melting purposes.
All my teacher friends are boo-hooing because school started again. Right. As if they get any sympathy from me. "Your three months of vacation are over? Awwww! Sorry you have to go back to work now."

This past weekend, I learned something important. To me, anyway. I learned that sometimes, no matter how good of a friend you are or try to be, or want to be, sometimes, you just have to step a way from a situation and/or the friends themselves. If not, they/he/she will drag you into their plight. And soon, you are caught in the middle with no exit sign in sight. So I did. I didn't answer phone calls from them/him/her, I didn't return calls/texts. I put distance between us and took that time to recharge and breathe. And you know what? It was great! I woke up Monday morning relaxed and in a good mood. Not stressed, as I had been just a few days before. I've decided I'm going to do this on a frequent basis. How about you? Ever had to detach yourself from friends or foes or family, for a little while?
And on that note, I'm off, to see the wizard. Or to see a pillow about some sleep. Meh. Whichever comes first!
