I have to find a yoga class tomorrow. It has been icy and cold and down right neck breaking risk to walk .. my dog is unhappy. Today was a long day at work and then I met with some fun folks and talked about some of the awesomeness in education. It was good but I have been forcing myself to stay awake. I think I will try and zzzzzz and then get up and do some work. Tomorrow starts another hockey weekend.

Here we go.

It was a long day. A good long day but long enough. I still forced myself look up a yoga class for tomorrow and here I am blogging. It was also freezing rain today and my car was covered in ice. I spent few minutes each time I went to get into the car to try and I would try and pick off ice and hoped and hoped I would get one big ole piece.


Sitting in Starbucks.

Yes. I am back and still in aww how it makes me feel like I am either some fancy writer or a some deeply haunted poet or something. I am also pretty impressed that these folks here do┬ánot give a second glimpse that I did not order one thing and this time I was even so, ballsy to bring my own water mug in…. they don’t care. There are no snickers or chatter about my cheap ole self. It is kinda nice to not feel … judged.

Tonight I also had to choose between yoga and blogging they bother kinda fit into my night and I didn’t know which way I wanted to roll. My hamstrings were trying to woo me to a yoga basics class to just open myself up by my music was pulling me into Starbucks to listen and work.. Starbucks won.

It makes me just reflect on choices… was it the right one?

How might my body felt if I chose the other? What would have been different? Does it really matter…. anyway.

I am happy to write.

So I made this BYW commitment to 2017. Each day I will Blog, Yoga or Walk. All my listening to podcasts and reading and getting older… I want to do one thing a day that may possibly make me a better in some way – physically, creativity, reflectively and whatever else surfaces.

I have tried to make resolutions in the past but it never worked and I wondered why… I think it cause I didn’t give myself a chance to have an option. For example – There was a hockey game today in Rockford. This meant 3 hours in the car, 2 hours at the rink – boom 5 hours. Tomorrow starts up school again which means I had lots to do to prep, I am also prepping 2 University courses that start the week, so a yoga class would not fit into my day. It was freezing today – forget the walk. But blogging, blogging I could do! So I am taking a small break in my planning and sandwich making to write: to workout my creativity muscle.
