Yoga Instructor Training begins next weekend. Let's forecast some yoga related postings in the future.
Today I attended an Open House for the local acupuncture school I daydream of attending. They're extremely inviting, AND offered me a work study opportunity :). We didn't discuss details but made a date to come back in after Brazil. My long term vision: to enroll full time and work towards the Masters of Science in Oriental Medicine once both kids are in school.
But it doesn't take much to inspire me. Give me a slide presentation on your Acupuncture school accompanied by some dope Korean food, and I'm about ready to sign up. I've been deliberating a career in acupuncture for 4 years now. If I'd taken the leap back then, I'd have a practice today. I'm still loving being a Full Time Mama. You'd have to drag me back to IT Quality Assurance kicking, screaming, with fingernails scratching down the sides of the wall. But Nala's still three years off from kindergarten, so maybe I could fit in a couple evening classes to get rolling down the path to the promise land.
And finally, Kaio strapped on his cleats (a freecycle score - hells yeah!) for our first ever soccer class (also free). Can you tell I'm stoked with taping into the cost-less area resources?
