    Off Schedule

    Yep, when I’m posting blogs after 8 in the evening, I’m way off schedule. I was a considerable fail this morning as far as writing in the blog although I did catch up on writing for the lab and paying bills. So, I’m actually gonna retract that fail and call it a win. Because I’m good enough; I’m smart enough; and gosh darn it, people like me! It’s pretty crazy that I live in Colorado, we get 3 inches of snow, and everyone drives like they just got here from Hawaii. I saw one person completely lost their sh!t in the sharpest corner in the area. Cops and a tow…

    Off My Game

    Even though it’s Monday, I didn’t start the day off my game and fortunately, I’m back on it already. As per all Mondays over the last two months, rise at 5:30 and physically prepare for getting to the gym so that I can mentally prepare for the week. I learned that today is Ganesh’s birthday, and in honor of that, we did/attempted Elephant pose. (Sit on the floor with legs outstretched. Tuck an arm/shoulder under the same side leg. Push through the palms and lift everything off of the floor.)   Photo credit: Yoga Journal It’s difficult, but manageable. For a few seconds at least. After a great practice and…

    When Kiddo speaks Spanish

    Something reminded me of this earlier this evening. When Kiddo was about 4 or 5, I was driving down the road and she was in the back in her car seat.  Kiddo proclaimed that she could count in Spanish.  I figured I would play along and told her to go ahead.  It went a little something like this: Kiddo: One is uno. Me: yes Kiddo: Two is dos. Me: very good Kiddo: Three is tres. Me: nice job Kiddo: Four is twat-ro. Me: (after recovering from nearly driving off the road from bouts of laughter) Almost, Kiddo, that's CUATRO. Kiddo: Ok. Read and post comments | Send to a friend

    FA-BO-LO-US

    Estimados Miami, No pueden caminar en frente de mi carro cuando yo tengo la luz verde y si se hacen, yo te voy romper sus piernas. Now, for those of you not from Miami or those of you who, like me, aren't bilingual (okay, I'm pretty good when I'm drunk) that says: Dear Miami, You can't walk in front of my car when I have the green light and if you do, I will break your legs (with my car). Love, The angry girl in the green car. Seriously.  I need that big black cop-rammer that the police have on the front of their car.  It would keep hair and…

    PLEASE, slow down

    For those of you that don't know, I'm a resident of south Florida, Miami to be exact.  I've lived here now for 3 years.  It hasn't been all candy and flowers, but it hasn't been that bad.  If, by some chance, you don't read these sorts of trivial things, Miami was voted country's rudest/worst drivers.  You can laugh about it and point fingers and joke, but it's sadly true.  I've lived in many places both in and out of this country, and Miami is the worst.  (And no, I'm not going to just sit and complain, we're moving next year.) I didn't start this post, however, simply to say the…
