I just wanted a Yoga strap, they mailed me a shoelace

When I first decided to move my family to Denver, Colorado one of the things in my dream scenario was to do Yoga, overlooking a mountainous view while the sunrise slowly made it’s light shine over me. I mean, I had some Mile High hopes. So far I’ve made it through Yoga in my basement home gym, outside (Once) on the patio until my neighbor came over and made a comment about my big round butt. I am really trying to get back into Yoga. I have noticed without, or at least the slow stretching motions I was doing, my lower back is tight. It makes it really hard to lift heavy things, to lift a kid, to carry my canvas grocery bags in that I fill way too full. I mean, it’s a mess.

I found this video.

Yes, it is for beginners. But I’m going to use it as a warm up to get my body ready for either a 2 mile or 4 mile walk with Kate, or use it as a cool down after I pump iron. It’s 10 minutes long which is perfect. The motions are easy. She does a LOT of stretching that helps the lower back and every time I watch the video I can hear Enya singing Only Time. You know that song. Who can say where the road goes, where the day flows, ONLY TIME. Yes, that one.

That’s a goal. I’m setting a new fitness goal. Add Yoga in a few times a week. The days I can’t go walked because of my weather, (Snow in APRIL!) I can at least do 10 minutes. It’s something.

So I was looking at different kinds of Yoga Mat carriers over the past 2 weeks. You know, for my drive up some mountain one day to do morning Yoga. I ordered this really cool looking bag. I thought it would be awesome because it sorta looks like Legolas’s quiver bag. If you don’t know Lord of the Rings, you won’t get that. That’s what I liked about it. I got it earlier today and it’s a black shoelaces, with 2 clear plastic slip knots on either side.

Now yes, I can use it around my yoga mat. Yes it works just fine. But I wanted the quiver bag. That company got a snarky email comment. They already said they sent it in mistake and instead of giving me my bag, they gave me a credit. I just wanted my yoga bag, man. Breathe. Just breathe through the resistance.

So that’s a new goal for your 2021 Batman bingo cards. Yoga.

Hope you guys are doing great. I’m doing good. I am sleeping much better. I know I have not been posting on Twitter that much. I’m spending a lot more time with my daughters in the mornings. I get chores done after lunch and I’m trying to spend more time with them in the afternoon. It’s a hard balance to get laundry, cleaning, cooking, time with my kids in. This house is too big for me to handle it alone. I don’t make my nannies clean my house or cook. That’s not their job. But I also didn’t think we would get rid of our maid service that came twice a week. I’m debating on starting that back up again but I feel like it’s way too soon. Maybe in a few months if they can prove they are vaccinated. I don’t know. I feel like all I do is clean the house. It sucks.

Have a good day guys. I need to go. My UPS guy is here (Again), don’t tell Kate Lol
