|BELLA IS TOO BUSY DIGGING FOR CRABS!|
MAKE TIME FOR ZUMBA --
Life is so busy that frequently I find myself saying, “I’m too busy to go to Zumba class. I don’t have time!” Regardless of whether we are living in Mazatlan, MX or Ashland, Oregon, the day easily fills up with work and chores. Though our life in Mexico is simpler, a day can still be full of chores . As I sit down to write a description of my typical day, I think that it is pretty mundane and who would want to read about it? I am sure that many people would say that their days are full of chores and drudgery also, no matter where they live. They probably feel the same way I do: "No wonder I don't have time to go to Zumba!"
I decided that I needed to
analyze what my typical day is like so that I could figure out how I get caught up in the mundane routine of daily living and seldom get around to exercising and doing fun activities. Instead of reading about my boring day, you might try writing your own list of typical daily activities and see if it makes you a little frustrated. Here is my typical day with Jon: We start the morning by catching up on e-mail while drinking a
cup of coffee, eat a light breakfast, wash dishes, do a little housework (clean
the bathroom, vacuum, dust the furniture, etc), and get a load of laundry together to
be washed. Then we need to shop for groceries, go home and put them away, prepare and eat lunch and do the dishes again. It's time to walk Bella, our dachshund, giving her enough
time to dig sand-crabs or chase ground squirrels. We finally take time to do some work (for me that is writing a blog article or a chapter in my book), then we need to pay
bills, go to the bank, etc.-- and we can`t forget to refill the hummingbird feeder
or the bossy little birds won't give us a moment of peace while we are trying to enjoy a
glass of wine at "Wine:30" and throwing the ball for Bella.

The solution is to schedule it! I put Zumba class on my calendar twice weekly and work everything else around it. If Zumba class is in Sayulita at 9:00 A.M., then I have time for e-mail and coffee, a light breakfast, then I get a load of laundry
