Be part of a real good thing

“Mom, I’m bored” was rarely heard around our home.  I would reply, “If you’re bored then you’re boring.”. Then it would be mere seconds until I found something that needed to be done.

I feel much the same way when I hear someone say, “There’s nothing to do in the town [insert town here].”  Really!?!?

My husband and I went on a date yesterday flea market hopping, then split and amazing lunch at a restaurant that uses only local ingredients. (Barn Brasserie for anyone in Muncie!)  Cheap, fun, and we only had time to hit 2 flea markets.  We also go frisbee golfing, bike riding, and people watching at the mall for fun.

But let’s talk about the things I do that don’t include my family…or my church.  Taking those two things out is like saying we’ll just eat the crust of a pie.  I happen to like crusts.

On Mondays I attend a club called Toastmaster’s International.  It’s from 6-7pm and I’m able to get back home in time for Family Night.  This organization’s purpose is to help people in areas of public speaking, thinking off the cuff, job interviews, evaluating other’s speeches, and meeting organizational skills, among many other things.   I love it.  I love speaking!  I thought I was an OK speaker before this, but I have learned that I have far to go.  There are competitions if one desires to take it that far, which I plan on doing.

On Tuesdays I teach a candlelight restorative yoga class from 6:30-7:30.  There’s still room for a few more mats in that class.

Wednesdays I start running at 9:30am trying to keep up with young whelps in an exercise class we put together at the church gym.

Then at 3:00 I assist in a Barrier’s Free program. We work with adults with special needs, we do acting workshops with them and it will culminate in a performance on the Muncie Civic Main stage!  I always leave feeling like I’m floating, and many times I’m dragging myself in.

It’s a good thin I’m floating because I run to the Lotus Yoga studio for my 5:00 class – also a few spaces left there.

I try to attend the Yin yoga class on Thursdays taught by the ever impressive Tammy.

Fridays are generally date night.

Saturday!  11:30  I get to go to practice for the playback troupe called, “Spotlight Players”.  20141108_172356We get to spend 2 glorious hours together developing the skills necessary to act out any number of scenarios or stories given to us by an audience.  I could do this every night!

Any one of these experiences I have throughout the week could use more people.  If you are wanting to find something to do that is fulfilling, that improves your life, that makes you new and lasting friends then ask me about my week.

Of course my Sunday is spent in worship and fellowship.  My church family is one that I love so much.  Usually the day ends with a video hangout with children.  Wonderful day of rest.
