Jen's Baby Shower

We had a great time at Jen's baby shower on Saturday, 5-8-2010. Her sisters planned lots of nice games. In one of them, the player had to pretend to meet some of the challenges of motherhood. They had to hold the baby, hold the phone on their shoulder and hang up laundry with clothes pins. Chris had checked in after turkey hunting so they had him play too. Here is video of Chris accepting the challenge and then Jen topping his score.

Feel Your Boobies

Today's post is a public service message. All of you, stop playing on the internet and go Feel Your Boobies. It only takes a few moments and it can save your life. Once you are done, find a friend and get them to feel their boobies too. I don't want to lose any more friends to breast cancer. Let's be proactive and take care of ourselves, okay?

Too much

Lots going on between home and work and classes. I just haven't had much time to blog. Hopefully I will have more time in about 3 weeks. I will be off for the summer then.

In memory of Dixie. A happy, friendly dog who loved her family and her yard. She will be missed.

First week done

Okay, I got a session of yoga in 3 times this week. Now to keep this going and increase the length of time I spend doing yoga. I can do this. This week, at least one session will be an hour. I need this. I am going to do it.

This fern is like me now. All curled up and ready to spread my fronds and be beautiful.

1st yoga of the challenge

We were in Virgina for the weekend. I got up before Tom and took blankets out of the truck and went out into Chris and Jen's new yard to do yoga. Two of the dogs were out and after two scoldings Daisy and Jewlz stayed away from the blanket that was to transform into MY yoga space. I worked my way gently through "Kath's Default, All-Purpose, Great Yoga Practice". I didn't push too hard or spend oodles of time in any pose, just gently felt my way from one to the next. I haven't done yoga since January. Extended poses and pushing the edge just a bit further will come later this month. I did throw in some warrior poses with my suns. It was all yummy. Much more to come. I know already it will be a great month.

Here is a picture of the patch of yard I borrowed. I wish I had taken a picture of what was directly above me. I love trees!

Okay, that's all for now, Amazing Race is coming on. Have to cheer for my cowboys.

The Virtual Yoga Challenge Begins

So I am way out of shape and my body has been telling me about it. April has arrived and with it the "Yoga Challenge" at Main Street Yoga , my "home" yoga studio. I knew I would not make it to the studio as much as i should for the challenge, so I did not sign up. Then I saw Kath's blog today. She has opened up a virtual yoga challenge. I made print out of her suggested practice so I don't have the excuse that I don't know what to do. My goal is 3 times per week. Let the challenge begin! I am totally ready!

My Handsome Man

I just had to get a shot of him all dressed up as he returned from his lodge meeting last night. Too bad he was turned sideways taking off his boots and checking voice mail messages.

*sigh* He still makes my little heart go pitter-patter.

Over There

I have talked to Sam twice though instant messenger in the last two days. He is doing well and excited for the new training he may get. Of course, we have lots of unanswered questions, like where will he be stationed when he gets back and when exactly will he get orders to return. Just what you would expect from his current employer. Here is a picture I swiped from one of his friends Facebook pages. As you can see he looks good. I am so glad for modern technology. It does a mother's heart good.

Snowy Day At MU

It's a snowy day here at MU but Beecher House is still open for business. Guess I shouldn't complain about the snow. Chris and Jen report that they had 30 inches from the last snowfall and expect another foot. That is just too much.
