So this is just a little post. I want to remind myself that not every entry needs to be monumental. This one finds me sitting in my jammies, at 1am staring at my passport. I don`t really wanna be a writer here. Just want to talk.

Things have been pretty crazy the last few days. My head is spinning upsidedown but I am managing. I did 8 straight days of hot yoga and I am now a believer. The best was on the last day when suddenly I made this breakthrough and could BEND back (just because I tried!)! I wanted to yell I was so happy but I maintained my silence and pushed through. So that is something I need to incorporate into my life, I have decided. I am so excited to meet Jessica who is a yoga instructor and will surely be able to steer me in the right direction.

I have been working so hard to just try and get myself into a good place to be able to go on this trip. I have been dealing with lots of technical issues and am starting to get snarky at the computers. Magic has been overactive and clearly needs more stimulus so I went and got her a big cat tree thingy. She will play fetch with the little red hat she has adopted as her new toy but still prefers her favorite shoelace.

Saturday morning I went to watch Nubians last basketball game of the year. I was really impressed with how much energy and skill these 10 year olds had. The way they worked together and set up plays was quite spectacular. It was great to see such teamwork in motion. Afterwards, we went to the greenhouses and got some seeds and dirt. I commissioned Nubian to grow me an herb garden to put on my balcony. My other nephew Khaalid has this new hobby of making scarves. I gave him a lot of wool and told him to go to it.

They have been wanting this new computer game since before Christmas. I wanted to give them the opportunity to be able to buy it for themselves. I think there is something very valuable about earning what you really want.

I hadn`t seen Stephanie for sometime so it was really nice to be able to catch her Health Fair presentation. I learned about the different chakras and how the relate to color frequencies. Later that night, Steph and I went out of wine and crepes to catch up before hitting a couple St Paddys Day house parties.

I am pretty tired to be honest. I know I should be going to sleep but the amount of things I have to do are just swirling around in my head. My dad was in the hospital Sunday morning and though I think he is going to be ok, it`s hard to see him hurting. I really feel my parents age now and realize that we need to cherish each moment we have with each other. Life is too short to have upsets with loved ones. Love is precious.

Grateful for chances.
