I'm doing a 40 days of yoga thing right now, and there's a journaling component. I have been doing some of it on a paper journal I bought for the exercise, but what the hell. I saw that there was some sort of effort to get back to livejournal by a bunch of friends, and this seems a nice serendipidy.
At any rate, today was day two of yoga, and i'm already in pain. I know that the pain is good pain, but it's been awhile since I've taken on something like this. The last time was a barre bootcamp in late 2011. I have to get up early tomorrow for a class, having finished one less than 12 hours prior. But that's the way my schedule works these days.
I like the classes, and there's a lot of support from my particular yoga studio. Facebook groups, e-mails, a very supportive community within the practice. And I know that since I have so much yoga ahead of me, I can always throw myself into child's pose for a few minutes during every class and no one will think poorly of me.
In other stuff, we're still in the design portion of the house addition. We met with the architect last week, and we're getting closer and closer to a design that will be eventually sent to the city for permiting. We may wait a little before we start construction, though, because the price of oil dropping means that there've been a lot of layoffs in Houston latley. And the crazy busy construction boom that's been going on without end in sight over the last five years or so may finally be slowing down. We may be able to get some decent pricing on some of the construction.
Work is work, and I'm sort of in a state of shock that I've been at the same place for nearly 13 years. It seems like I just moved back to Houston. But it also seems like I've been here forever.
Fusilli is still showing, but we may pull him back from that. It's something we need to figure out sooner or later. I like the puli community quite a bit, both locally and globally online. It's been a really nice support system, and Fusilli and I have bonded quite considerably with the conformation work. This isn't to say that Celosa and I haven't bonded, but he's very into it in a way she would never be.
At any rate, I have an early morning yoga class to get to.
