Downward Facing Dog

Me & milk face
The nights have been getting so cold here, so Bob and I gave Grace her comforter tonight, that came with the Princess set we bought her over the summer. She was so stinking' happy about it, as you can see in the picture below. Now maybe she will be excited about bedtime again.

Today I tried yoga for the first time. It's something I've been wanting to try forever, but kept putting off. Bob bought me a deluxe yoga kit, ahh, 5 years ago, and I used it for the first time today. I can see why people do it. I can't say I felt relaxed by it, maybe because I was doing it with Grace. That was something to see. I had the yoga mat out, the blocks & rope, and put the DVD in. She was really watching the girl on the TV, trying to do it. I was watching her more than the instructor b/c she was so darn cute and funny. And she was as serious as you can be, really trying to get the poses down. If I really wanna get into it, I'll have to try one of the many classes they have at my gym.

Did someone call a doctor?

The next chapter of my folk wisdom book is about Advice. The chapters go in alphabetical order, some topics have pages of entries, others only have a few proverbs. There was slim pickin's on this one, but here goes:

Teeth placed before the tongue give good advice ~ Italian

A good example is the best sermon ~ English

Nip/Tuck's on tonight. We can't wait, it looks like it's going to be a good one. I just wish it wasn't on so late. Hmm, when did 10pm become late?

Yoga is awesome! You'll totally love it, but I highly suggest going to a few classes before trying it on your own. I've tried to do it at home, but Mags won't let me get into it. I have to say when I did it regularlly, my body was in the best shape ever. Good luck!

your kids are so gorgeous- and so are you!

yeah, i'm feeling the yoga plus kids equals maybe-not-so-relaxing. certainly entertaining, though!
