Fall is here!! The busiest time of year!

Fall is here!! The busiest time of year!

Fall is here and I am so excited because that means winter is just around the corner! I love it when the seasons change and I am so happy to be living in an area where we get to experience the seasons!

On the other hand, fall is the craziest, most hectic time of year for me as far as teaching goes. Marching band groups compete from August to December and that means I am working my butt off choreographing, designing and teaching my students a show that they will perform thought the months. This year I am working with a high school group and also a university group so I really do have my plate full! I am also working part time at my resort job to get the bills paid, I have my gift business and I am trying to have a life as well! Ha.. this is insanity!

I always manage to get sick during the fall/ winter months and this does not surprise me at all! I work myself the hardest during this time, I am going nonstop and the weather is changing so it is only natural that my body is unable to handle all the pressures, stresses and changes. I am in the beginning stages of some throat cold right now, big surprise!

I did manage to squeeze in some me time in the last few weeks so that helps to keep me going! Nathan and I were invited to the inaugural run of the Sunset Limited Grand Canyon Train Ride and we had a blast! We also went down to do the family thing since his grandfather just had a stroke and is not doing so well. It was nice to see family and it is nice to see everyone making an effort to get along with everyone else.

We are back home now and in the thick of it again.. Part of me just wants to lay in bed drinking hot tea and resting till my cold passes. Unfortunately, I have teaching obligations this morning and I am also working at the resort all night tonight so I have to keep myself going! Once the snow starts to fall I’ll have time to rest and relax!
