The student as teacher?

A few days ago, the hubs and I had a bit of a scuffle. I basically came home and got in a huff about something. I guess I raised my voice and he got mad, back and forth, back and forth. Well, I calmed down and apologized for raising my voice but he was still miffed. At one point, he asked the babes, "Was mom yelling?"

Man, I have had this post in my head for a while...just couldn't find the time to post. When the babes was younger, she didn't really take to babysitters. She tolerated them, but of course, she preferred us never to go out. Especially me. Now that she is older and has the capacity to formulate "If..Then" scenarios. I think she rather likes when we call in sitters. The newer the better.

Lunch Inspo

I've been meaning to post this for a while but just hadn't found the time! I wanted to share some lunch/snack inspos.
Firstly, what I have found to be a lifesaver is developing a lunch rhythm. Meaning, I have a weekly menu that I just follow. Right now it's the following:

The Ego

I have shared before that I do a lot of self-reflecting. Truly, I feel as if Los Angelenos should not need therapy at all. We all spend enough time in our cars, slowly moving that we have plenty of time to self-reflect and just think about life in general.

Going to school on crutches

The babes seems to have sprained her ankle the other day. She spent the day at home yesterday and since she was in such high spirits and seemed to be jumping out of her skin, I sent her to school today knowing they had crutches available for her.

Dog Meditation

These days, I'm practicing dog meditation. That is a form of falling into meditation whilst holding your dog on your lap, in your arms, by your side while petting him.

Yep, that's what I do throughout the day. In the nighttime, we are sort of crate training our little guy so I put him in his crate and pet him to soothe him while he is in his crate. I pet him until he crawls into a little heap and falls asleep. This can be 10 minutes or 20 minutes. In any case, whatever the time, is however long I am meditating.

Pretty good deal right? Yes, go out and get a dog. It's a win-win for everyone! A dog gets a furever home and you get some meditation in your life. Connect with your inner wisdom.

Check out A Purposeful Rescue, which is where we got our very senior (10 years old) puppy.
