So I've had a New Year's Resolution every year since about 2006 to learn to belly dance. I think it's awesome. I watch youtube videos. I read blogs. But I've never actually taken a class. I just think about it. This year I said, "Ok, I really want to learn how to do this, I'm going to do it." I actually did some google searches for local belly dancing classes. But it's not something that comes up in google much. And we live up in the mountains, and I'm a new mom, and when am I going to get time to belly dance, right? So I kind of just figured it wasn't going to happen.
Every Monday is Mommy Night when I go to yoga and then chorale rehearsal with 45 minutes in between for dinner. I was walking back to my car to put my yoga mat back and grab my wallet, and I saw this sign on the sidewalk outside a store called Buddha Mouse, and it reads, "Belly Dancing, every Monday, 5:30pm." The store was closed, but I knocked on the window and the woman came out and told me all about it.
So now I'm going to alternate yoga and belly dancing every Monday. Mommy Night Rocks.
T-5 Days until New Zealand. Yikes.
