Sometimes you just have to pay attention to the signs

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.
