Are You a “Home-Body”? Come Out Tonight!
This morning I got up early while the Hubster was still sleeping. It was just breaking dawn and the little brown side stretched and trotted beside me as I made my way to the front door to let him outside. I then pushed the couch and the table back and unrolled my yoga mat for a peaceful practice at home.
I’m a home-body. If there’s an option to do something at home, I will do it. Yoga, work, movies… Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a shut in, [ ] I just really like the comforts of my own space. However, let me tell you something about doing yoga at home…
While laying on your mat you will notice what is really lurking underneath your furniture. You will also come to realize that investing in the more expensive vacuum cleaner may have been a smarter option.
But, you ignore those things and keep stretching and breathing and strengthening your body & mind. …Until you do another downward dog and through your legs you see your husband – all the way through the dining room and the small hallway, and into the bedroom, hanging upside down making fun of you.
Yay! We are all awake. Woo hoo.
I finally make it to the end of my practice and I am laying in savasana (which just means you’re laying on your back and breathing for a quiet space of time) – and Jay decides to come over and sit on the couch and stare at me, trying as best he can to get me to crack.
Radar was actually pretty good with his “doga practice” today. He only came over and profusely licked my face once and did his little stretches only a tiny bit.
But now this?! ha…
After he got his desired laughs out of me, he left me in peace to finish breathing (really, this is my favorite part – after all the hard work, you just lay there and breathe!). But as it so happens, he then put on his heavy man shoes while he straightened up the apartment and that was quite distracting (although what girl has a right to complain when her man straightens up the place?). MY GOODNESS. The quiet breathing thing really didn’t work out! Perhaps I will go to yoga class after all and forget the ‘at home’ routine.
OR, because I’m a ‘home-body’, maybe I’ll just get up earlier next time!
Question: Do you opt for ‘at home’ as much as you can (like me) or do you try getting out more often?!
If you’re into getting out and you live in New Jersey, swing by LYRICS & LAUGHTER tonight for a performance of my original music. There will be three other singers and an improv troupe. It’s sure to be a good time!
