If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

RBOC: The Day Before

  • Tomorrow I teach my first class of the semester. It seems like every academic blogger I read has been teaching for the past week or two. Pumpkin and Angel have both been in school for a week. This past week has been a gift.
  • Today was my 9th day in a row of going to the gym. Unfortunately the women's steam room is now broken in both locations.
  • Yesterday b took a yoga class with me at the gym. The instructor commented publicly on his "open hips" and wished that she had his flexibility. That's right ladies, my man has enviable hips. I'm really not sure what to make of that.
  • Tomorrow I was going to start the day with a doctoral committee meeting and I was planning on getting up really early (for me) to make the gym. Today that meeting got cancelled. Score!
  • Today is really the last day I can take off for a while. There is a grant I'm supposed to be revising but b is off and playing with him is just too much fun.
  • Yesterday b and I went to the dojo to work out alone (I have a key). b has a new GoPro camera and put it on his head while we sparred. Its weird to watch yourself fighting. I told him next time I should wear it so he can see what he looks like.

"Steam room BROKEN?!"

Oh, I'd quit. So fast. I'd be demanding my money back, plus reparations for "emotional duress."

Enviable hips, huh? For some reason that just makes me giggle. It could be the lack of coffee, though. :)

Yay for working out!!!!

I'm chuckling at what Drax said. I agree.

Well, happy new semester! I hope it goes well. At least the meeting was cancelled. That's always a bonus. Open hips? That had to be weird to hear. You're right. Enviable is a better way to describe it.

Keep working out! When you told us about a diet/workout in the past, I got inspired and lost ten pounds. I can't remember which post it was...I'm losing my mind...sometime last year. But I could use some more motivation, because I think I gained it back. I'm too chicken to get on the scales now.
