I’m Bored and I am Getting a Divorce

I am a bit bored at work right now.

I’ve got things to do, which I do, but holy crap, the days no longer fly by and that makes for a very long day…after day, after day.

I was so excited last week.

I was going to get to spend my afternoons for the next few weeks organizing the place while someone else covered for me.

Right out of the gate I met with defeat.

There I was changed into my yoga pants, tank, ball cap and sneaks ready to rock the joint.

And I rocked it for all of 30 minutes before I admitted defeat and changed back into my dress, which pleased my boss immensely as he chose that moment to need my help with everything under the sun.

There is so much stuff that needs to be recycled, discarded, moved and it’s not my call as to what to purge first.

Plus without any direction my hands are tied.

After the initial purge, then I could rock it.

But I don’t see that day coming any time soon, since it has been that way for at least a decade now.

So now I have just given up.

I’ll continue to keep my floor totally spectacular, and they can keep theirs as they wish, since I don’t have to work up there.

On another front, it seems that I will be going through a divorce.

This will give me a new experience, and may really keep me from ever getting married.

My boss asked if I would help him divide up his investments between him and his ex-wife.

I think it is pretty cool that my boss trusts me with his personal information, and I handle a lot of personal items for him.

I am not a talker so I do not discuss these matters with anyone, and I don’t look at transactions or breakdown information either because it is none of my business.  Anyway, how would it help me out to know?

If something does pique my curiosity, I just ask him point-blank….

So why do you receive a monthly bill from this place?

Because I got a year interest free, any other questions?

Nope, I am good.

But I have no idea how you divide things up.

Apparently neither does he, hence the asking of my help.

Really it is more my computer help that he needs, and it is kinda scary that he would depend on my skills.

But then again in his eyes and only in his eyes because I am slightly challenged, I am a computer whiz!

I think his only other options were asking one of his grown children or a co-worker for help.

Therefore I was chosen by default.

So should you find yourself in the unfortunate position of going through a divorce, call me.

I will professionally and confidentially be able to help you settle your affairs.

Yeah, I don’t think so.  This is going to be a one shot deal for me.

I think it is time for me to really explore getting training to be a fitness trainer.

That kinda excites me and intimidates me all at once, and I am leaning more towards the intimates me side.

You know that accounting certificate I put on hold so I could currently pursue my yoga certifications instead?

Well that community college also offers a fitness trainer certificate.

Just something I am pondering so I can add a little more activity and excitement into my daily work life.

I have an Acrobatic Yoga PLAYshop coming up this weekend.

Perhaps that will help me gain a little perspective.

Still working on creating my hall of fame…..Tune for the post ~ Hall of Fame

Bonus Points for being open to trying…Surfing. Rock Climbing. Mountain Hiking. Aerial and/or Acrobatics Yoga.

I joined an online dating site!

Just kidding.

I have known several people who have tried it.

I have known several people who have tried to convince me to do it.

But I have known NONE that it has ever worked out for.

The people I know have found someone by going about their daily lives and taa daa, which is so more my speed.

But I did decide to step outside of my comfort zone a little, I placed a newspaper classified ad (please see above).

Again, just kidding.

But I figured it couldn’t hurt to throw it out there to life what it is I am looking for, as I go about my daily life, which will one day surprise me with a Taa Daa!

And people wonder why I am still single.

Show Me The Money!

A day off.

My April 16th day off is finally here!!!

What am I going to do with my day?

Go into work. hahaha

There are just too many loose ends for my OCD brain to tie up all nice and pretty, before she will get on board with taking a day off.

Have no fear, there are days off, as in plural, on the other side of this going in for a few hours today to tie things up to my liking and comfort level.

Plus, it seems, I can’t just go cold turkey.

Not when my drive for the last handful of years has been to earn my former salary back after starting over in a new field.

No one will be in except for my bosses, so I can focus on my stuff.

Get in. Get it done. Get out.

Oh, and remind my bosses that we are due a post tax season salary review and raise meeting.

They give bonuses at the end of the year, and assured me that they will not forget how awesome I was and will show it.

That came from the boss who I think might have forgotten about the raise part, as he was a little slow to warm to the idea originally since I had only been there for three months, but did agree to it after my other boss threw it out there enthusiastically based on my fall mini tax season performance.

So I will just remind them that once the dust settles, I’d really like to have that talk.

show-me-the-money-300x162

But truth be known, I would have worked that hard regardless. It is in my genes.

Plus it has been my experience that you do get rewarded for being a hard working team player, whether it is agreed upon up front or not.

The warm and fuzzy of my day, I get to go into work in sweats and a ball cap.

For some reason, I can kick ass even better when I am dressed for it.

My boss asked me if I had grand plans for my days off.

I told him, Dude I am gonna get crazy! Steam my carpets, get all of my own filing done, donate anything that I am not using, pet my cat, get some yoga classes in to get back in shape, do some cooking…..you name it, I’m on it!

He’s still trying to wrap his head around that being fun and fulfilling. hahaha

 


Let’s Get It Started!

I fell off the fitness band wagon.

Not only did I fall off, I got run over and left for dead.

I haven’t done anything since my Valentine’s Day weekend workshops.

Silly things like the winter from hell that won’t go away and tax season got in my way.

I now officially have a Buddha belly, and not in a good way.

I also have a little bit more squishiness going on in place that I didn’t even know I had.

Therefore, I declare today as rededication to having a great summer body I don’t care how close we are to April 15th this has got to happen day.

Even if the end results don’t start showing up until late-August, this is gonna be my summer!! hahaha

That’s my story and I am sticking to it!

Granny’s all inspired now.

I think I’ll go into work for a few hours……

And then hit up that other Yoga Partners Workshop being held today that I was going to go to, but then thought not, but now it is so on if they still have room.

Happy Yoga Saturday!

PS ~ The workshop was sold out.  Sad Granny going through withdrawal.


Granny’s A Weekend Warrior!

Granny, aka me, did rest up and then went to an Aerial Yoga Level 2 workshop yesterday!

Guess what?

Another photo shoot!

The owner hired a photographer to take pictures of the class for upcoming advertising.

Can we say Cheeeeese!

Of course, one day I will receive all these said pictures from both workshops, and at that point I will be able to determine if I am indeed on the right path or if I just have an amazing imagination.

But Granny has been thinking, they, whoever they are, say that it is good to workout at least 30 minutes a day.

Well with tax season and all, if I could cram all my workouts into intensive weekend workshops training, well then granny might be able to at least maintain what I have, and still have a shot at working on my summer belly goal on the other side of tax season!

my belly goal 2014

  (Summer Belly Goal.

Probably Will Never Happen.

But We Must Have Goals!)

Since I am picture less at the moment of my great yoga claims to fame, I borrowed some photos from the web to add visuals to my post.

These are some of the Aerial Yoga things that I am pretty good at (until proven otherwise)…

Backward Leg Lift Bend

But this, no way around it, I can bend every which way but loose, but for the life of me I don’t split well…

split

However, I was adventurous and tried this pose, the only one in the class to give it a try…

help

Once I got there I knew why no one else was game.

I had a panic attack because my muscles were fatigued from yesterdays partner yoga workshop and I was stuck, I mean holding the pose, until I caved and asked, Um, how the hell do I get out of this????

Once I got out, I did it again.

And again had to ask, Um, holy crap, I forgot. How the hell do I get out of this again????

You can cuss in Aerial Yoga.

And that’s all she wrote.  Granny’s sore and got to go to work now.

But with twinkle in the eye, there’s another partner yoga workshop coming up next weekend!

This time it is Acro as in acrobatics and they use up to three people in the pose.

As long as there is still room, my past photo shoots don’t show up and burst my bubble, and I make it through this week at work with a little bit of energy left for next Saturday….I am in!

Fingers crossed.  The only thing on me to cross that isn’t sore.


I Could Have Done It All Night Long! *click*snap*flash*

Partner or acrobatic yoga that this.

I went to my second partner yoga class/workshop yesterday.

My last class was at least five years ago.

Guess what?

Grandma’s still got it!

I say grandma, because the average age of the students of this new studio has got to be 28, max.

I showed up for class only to be told that I would be front and center and being used as the example.

That’s what happens when you don’t have a partner.

I was happy to see that all of the people who had signed up for the class were couples, because that is so something I’d want to do with someone I was in a relationship with.

And those dudes raked in mucho Valentine’s Day Weekend points with their girls, I can tell you that!

Being up front with the owners, who are married, of the studio worked out in my favor too, because guess who is on a first name basis with the owners of the joint now?!

I partnered with both of them at different times, but mainly with the totally muscular twice plus my weight partner, that gave me such a workout that my legs and arms were often shaking, as I had to support his weight by counteracting it with mine, while using my very little muscles.

They helped me, and the others, to capture some of my favorite moments in a long time, because they took pictures throughout the class of everyone.

I am hoping my poses look as good in print as they did in my head.

At the end of class we were doing some extra throw ins, just want to see what you can do Lisa stuff.

I was game.

You’ve got to get a picture of this!

*click*snap*flash*

Now try this Lisa.  Oh wow, get a picture of this one too!!!

*click*snap*flash*

Ok, I want to see if you can do this one last thing.

*click*snap*flash*

Beautiful, Lisa.

*click*snap*flash*

I could have done it all night long!!

These are the teachers/owners I partnered with…..

It was the best class ever!!

Like I said, I hope the pictures they took in class came out just as nice so I can share them here once I get them.

Until then, Grandma’s gotta rest!
