David: Who are you texting on Christmas Day?
Stan: My boyfriend. (in reality my bf Monica)
David: Well your boyfriend should help you pay off debt.
Stan: Hrmph. Maybe he will. Actually, probably not.
David: I was thinking that is why men have multiple wives, it wouldn’t work the other way around. If you took another husband it would be like twice the amount of work for you.
Stan: That is true.
David: But if you had a bunch of wives, you could really get a lot done. Everything would be so super organized.
Stan: Yeah, you know when my sister came over and I went upstairs for 10 minutes to put the baby down for a nap. When I got back down, she had washed, dried and put away all my dishes. She actually apologized for not knowing where one of the pots went.
Later, I decided to google “sister wives”. Lo and behold there is a reality show about a polygamist family. I haven’t made it through the episode, but if you have a few minutes and there are no sharp objects around your computer that you might accidentally shove in your eyes, then I totally recommend the video below.http://www.vimeo.com/15582302
Holden’s first Christmas was fun. Mostly he complained about being taken out past his bedtime two nights in a row. He did get some lovely presents and David and I stayed in our pajamas until 1 on Christmas Day, which was pretty great.
Practice has been a little tricky with the enormous amounts of food I have been eating. I am working on parsva dhanurasana right now. Initially, it made my incision a little tender and I felt a bit sucky doing final backbends. I’m very dramatic about my incision and any little twinge I get pretty neurotic about. I try not to share my hysteria with anyone else, but of course after two days of sensation in parsva dhanurasana I wigged out a little and imagined my psoas stretching too far, the incision line bursting and my guts flying out across the mysore room. Thankfully, I don’t believe I have come close to doing that and my incision line is still intact, slightly purply/pink, and slowly shrinking.
Currently, I am feeling sucky about a knot at the base of my left shoulder blade from carting around the 20 lb-monster vegan baby. It starts mid-back and travels up into my jaw. Yuk – it is such a gross feeling. Backbending does help a little. Apparently drinking coffee doesn’t help. Rats!
