more rain

Its been raining all day! I think its actually been raining for two days. I had a great nap this afternoon. Rain is great white noise while I sleep. I watched the movie Notting Hill tonight for the 3rd or 4th time. Julia Roberts has a great line in that movie…”I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love me.” How fabulous!
So I think my life is TOO busy right now! I think it will get better in a couple of weeks, but its pretty bad when you have so many things to do that you have to take a day off of work to do them! If I can squeeze in at least 15 minutes of yoga everyday, then I’ll be in a good place….


just breathe

…in and out…thats the best way to do it.  I just have to remind myself that sometimes.

I haven’t written in awhile because a lot has happened and a lot has stayed the same. I didn’t want to write about what is new. It hadn’t been fun or good. Our cat Charley died exactly a month ago today. I had to put him to sleep in the room with the bamboo and the nice poems on the walls and the “couch” at the vet’s office. It was a long week prior, and I suppose I should be grateful that the illness this time only took about a week of Charley not feeling good. The last time he was sick much longer. There was a chance that he was going to improve and our hope was raised, but then it became clear that things were much worse. On the morning of his last day I knew that it was his last day. In fact, the day he got sick again, I knew in my gut that it was near the end. Mr. Yogamama was in China, so much of this was done quietly and quickly to spare my daughter from the details. Thanks to people who were able to be there on a moment’s notice, he is safe now and we talk to him and send him letters and love. Here’s to you, Charley. Rest in Peace. We love you. dscn3684
