yesterday i spent a solid, sixty, mind-bending, thumb-spraining seconds attempting to open my garage door with my ipod.
i could feel my smug prius, in all her wannabe eco-friendliness, snigger at me as we silently rolled into the dark garage; me having finally deciphered the difference between a sleek, 1/8th of an inch, 40,0000 song capacity, portable, apple media player, and a clunky, dinosaur age, pep boys’ finest, garage door opener currently held together with two rubber bands, scotch tape and prayer.
somebody needs a nap.
my weeks are ramping up with new classes and clients. i’m grateful to be working so much. each day, each hour brings a laugh, a shimmy of the hips, and sometimes even tears of such thankfulness, wild horses couldn’t hold them in; my apologies to monday’s yoga crew, that savasana speech sometimes just brings out the sally field in me.
but with all the go, giddy up and impromptu dance parties comes a mess of frazzled, hot katie……cut to scene of me screaming obscenities at my garage door, neighbors calling the police.
i must find more down time.
unplugged. detached. unthinking.
tell me m’loves, what are your favorite ways to unwind?
unconsciousness. reading, hiking, leisurely bathing do not compare to being dead to the world in my sheets.
Hot cup of tea and a good book in bed. THat's my fave. It's hard to unplug for awhile but it feels so good to do so!
Hiking. Without cameras or cell phones or watches. Just me and a notebook, or a good friend. I need a trip like that very soon. Even though I wouldn't mind an impromptu dance party with it.
