I am an unapologetic first adopter. I don't wait for the next, and probably better version of new gadgets and gizmos. I got the first Kindle. I got the first Ipad. Today my iWatch came. I ordered it on April 10th, the first day it went on sale. I must say I was a little … Continue reading The iWatch is Rad
A Guest Post in honor of Mother's Day-from "The Mysterious G" Holidays are complicated for many people and Mother's Day tends to be one of those "complicated" holidays for us. Kath did not have a "dream" Mother. She had a complicated and complex relationship that ended long before her Mother's death. She does not enjoy … Continue reading Mother’s Day
Tomorrow at this time, the Yoga Challenge at Main St Yoga will be over for another year. One of the Challengers, and a fellow blogger, posted this on her blog today. She’s a terrific writer and her words touched me. Quite the testimonial, no? Thank you, Brittany! Much love.
Today is day 29 of the Elite Yoga Challenge. It’s been a breeze this year. The hardest part has been juggling the kids and traveling for childcare on days that my wonderful fiancé can’t make it home from work in time.
I haven’t blogged daily this year (obviously) about the challenge. At first, I meant to. But then I came to the realization that I didn’t need the accountability like in past years. I simply NEEDED the yoga and the companionship from my yoga tribe. So I decided to be intentionally selfish and soak it ALL up myself instead of sharing it. “Be selfish to be selfless”. That sort of thing.
Now that it’s almost over I’ll admit that my (almost ever-present) anxiety is starting to flair up. I have issues. There are 59 days until my wedding. My to-do list for said wedding is still pretty long (though I…

I want to start another streak. A yoga streak. I need to get my personal practice back. Bad. The other day I subscribed to Udaya so that I would have lots of classes to choose from and no excuses. My pre-streak started today when I woke up, took a hot shower, slathered myself in coconut … Continue reading How many streaks are too many?
1. Today it was sunny and in the 40s (omg, my face didn't hurt when I walked outside!) 2. And G's wheatgrass is up! 3. I did a private Beginner Yoga lesson today with a delightful woman who came in with a new mat (the absolutely worst mat she could have gotten, but oh well, … Continue reading A Few Things That Made Me Happy This Week
Yesterday I bought a new game for us at the kid toy store. It’s called Pathagon, (which I keep calling “Pathogen.”) It is a strategy game in which you try to build a path from one end of the board to the other as your opponent tries to block you. It’s not as complicated as … Continue reading Pathagon
I often feel guilty about the fact that my life is so happy. That’s because so many people are not so happy. Some are lost, others are bored. Some are unsettled, others are burdened. Some are taking depression meds, others need to be taking depression meds. They are dealing with time stress and money stress … Continue reading Happy
G posted some pictures on Facebook today. Pictures of dirt. Pictures of the ground. Pictures of people not wearing coats. I don't remember that. I looked in the mirror today and let's just say, I'm not a "winter." My skin is the color of a codfish.. The bags under my eyes could hold my wallet, phone, … Continue reading The Doyen of the Detox
Today I gave my personal trainer 2 letters. One letter was a conventional recommendation letter he asked me to write for him for graduate school. The other was an unconventional letter, the letter I really wanted to write, explaining to the school that he really didn’t need them because he already had the skill set … Continue reading Too poor to be brave
The other morning while G was walking Boomer, a neighbor stopped to tell her that she had seen bears up behind the cemetery. "Yeah," she said, "just so you know, the bears are up. It's time to take the feeders in at night." So for the last 2 nights we have been taking the feeder … Continue reading A Rumor of Bears
