Change is Hard

We had a wonderful time camping over the weekend. I'm hoping I have time to post about it tomorrow and share photos. I need to spend some time writing the recap and I don't have it tonight. I'm in panic mode right now. I need to pack for vacation and I'm running out of time like I always do. I'm also super busy at work so no spare time there either. And why is it I never plan ahead and schedule getting my hair/eyebrows done before vacations like I know I should.

Zumba tonight and tomorrow night were a priority for me this week having missed the last three classes since we were out of town and knowing I'll miss four classes while I'm on vacation. At class tonight I was shocked to learn my favorite Zumba instructor is leaving the YMCA to pursue other opportunities. Just shocked. I went through the first half of class like a zombie wondering what I was going to do. Do I talk to Jim about cancelling my membership to follow her? Do I hope I will like the new instructors as much as I like her? I looked around the room about midway through the class and notice a lot of sad faces. And then I was like screw it. I can't blame her for leaving. I understand that she has to do what's best for her and I'm sure it was not easy to come to class tonight and make the announcement that she was leaving. I'm grateful for every class she's ever lead me in and for every inch she's helped me lose and I will always appreciate what she's done for me. Unfortunately for me, this isn't the first time I've had a favorite Zumba instructor leave the YMCA and I can see now that it probably won't be the last time either. I realized tonight might be my last class with her and I needed to make the most of it with no regrets. So I put a smile on my face and gave it my all for the rest of class.
