Isn't it crazy how life can slow down and become busier all at the same time? Or am I the only one who experiences that...
Work is going well, pretty steady and I am enjoying my job for the most part. I was taking a class this summer, but that didn't end up working out, and being in the RS presidency is coming to an end. I should have all the time in the world, right?
I have been helping out in the yard more this year (I will have to post some pictures), I am trying to go to ward activities more, and I am going to start taking piano lessons again! (YAY!!) My previous teacher decided that she would accept me back, flaws and all. Although I am sure she is hoping that she can fix some of them, or that they have gone away in the past 4 years since I took from her. I think that being a teacher myself has given me a greater appreciation for what she went through with me: trying to get me to practice, explaining something that is so obvious to me to someone who has no clue about it, and the frustration of hearing the same song with no improvements for weeks on end...even though they promise that they have been practicing.
Anyway, I am extremely excited to begin taking lessons again. It is so much easier when there is someone looking forward to hearing what you worked on, has constructive criticism, and is counting on you to not waste their time.

I've decided that life never slows down. Just when you think you can settle down for a bit and relax, something inevitably interferes. Good luck with the piano lessons! It sounds like a nice reason to be busy.
