The Whirlwind That Was January

  • Have been incredibly busy. One of these days I’ll elaborate, but the short of it is that it’s awesome and I’m having a blast.
  • Still managed to post and/or write something every single day and I am quite proud of that. Let’s see how another 28 days goes.
  • After deciding that the photo-a-day thing was just not going to happen, I’ve kept up with the photo-a-week and that’s going much better. I’m happy to say they aren’t all of the dog, but I’m sure to have many more as the year progresses.
  • Daily yoga starts today, however, I’m still fighting a sinus cold that is thoroughly kicking my ass so I’m not quite sure that it really will start today. But whenever it does I expect to start it off with a full 31 consecutive days.
  • I went the entire month and didn’t even finish a book. I’m honestly appalled and just a little disgusted with myself. But that first bullet has really been all consuming.
  • In a shocking twist, I found out there’s a school issue. I think I may just take this as a sign that classes this semester are not meant to be.
  • Uschi has been shedding like it’s an Olympic sport. Since she was so great for the groomer her first time, I’m thinking of sending her there again because I can’t seem to keep up with the fur and I’m at a point where I don’t know if I’m so much stuffed up from the annoying cold or all the dander.
  • Coming up: portraits, cupcake projects, book reviews, and I’m getting my hair did.

    You sound extremely busy, but also in good spirits. As for yoga, I found it helped my awful cold from you-know-where that I had in January. The ohm sound loosened my sinus pressure as well as the inverted poses.

    • Yes, I am, on both counts.

      Generally, I can still do yoga even when I’m not feeling well and in specific I do find it helps a lot with menstrual cramps and pain. However, I really have a hard time doing yoga when I can’t breathe through my nose. It seems a small thing, but that coupled with how utterly crappy I’ve been feeling just wasn’t a recipe for enjoyment. After my few days of all but sleeping, I expect I’ll get back into my daily routine sometime this week.

Speak your piece!
