Hello from Atlanta

Hi everyone.
I've wanted to start Aikido many times in the past, but recently small children, a crazy job and life in general have always gotten in the way. Now however I am determined to start this pursuit and not get deviated by the usual distractions of the daily grind. I'm nervous to begin, but also looking forward to it - Aikido occupies my mind for quite a bit of time during the day and night. I have experience in other arts, but have never been quite as captivated by one.
Anyway, I look forward to getting involved!
Eric

Eric - Congratulations on recognizing all the competing factors that will resist your efforts to keep Aikido in your schedule.

The hardest part is showing up...

That sure is the truth! I'm determined to not let these things get in my way this time however. Luckily I have my wife's support and my kids are now at a point where one person can deal with them for a couple of hours here and there.
