Goat Yoga

This weekend I tried something new – goat yoga. It was fantastic.

 

The class was put on by Megan at Red Wagon Goats. Her and her partner own a goat landscaping company and Megan is also a yoga instructor. I love goats and I really enjoy yoga, so I jumped at the chance to take the class.

 

As I’d expected, the class was a mix of chaos and humor. If you love snuggling baby goats with some yoga on the side, this class is for you. Anyone seeking a serious yoga class would probably be annoyed.

 

During the class, one of the babies came up and started chewing on my hair. Then he nuzzled me, looked into my eyes, and bit my nose. He was so little that it didn’t hurt, and he was so cute and cuddly, I wouldn’t have cared if it did.

I don’t know the last time I laughed so hard. Trying to do serious yoga poses while a herd of goats roams around the mats requires a level of concentration I don’t have. They tried to eat everything, chased each other around, one kept sneezing, and a few laid down on the mats. The babies tried to snuggle with everyone. Miraculously, some yoga was actually accomplished.

 

Goat yoga surpassed all my expectations. Yes, it was chaotic. Yes, laying down in corpse pose while goats run by might have been a bit nerve-wracking, but I left the class with a huge smile on my face and a feeling of pure happiness. I wish I’d also left with one of the baby goats tucked under my arm.

Living Life

I love the promise that comes with a fresh start at the beginning of a new year. I’m not someone that typically makes resolutions, but this year I’m making one to live life more fully.

 

My work week is spent waking up, going to work, going home, going to bed, repeat. My weekends are spent maybe going out to do something fun on Saturday, then Sunday is spent cleaning and getting ready for the next work week. I’m sick of living like a hamster on a wheel. I don’t want to wake up at 70, look back, and see all the missed opportunities I didn’t take because I was worried about taking time off work.

The Most WTF Lines from Last Night’s Debate

These would be hilarious if he wasn’t running for president. And yes, they are all from Trump. All quotes were taken from this NPR transcript.

 

1. On Hillary’s plan to fight ISIS:

DONALD TRUMP: “… No wonder you’ve been fighting ISIS your entire adult life.”

Um, ISIS hasn’t been around that long.

 

2. On the allegation that he hasn’t paid his taxes:

HILLARY CLINTON: “… Or maybe he does not want the American people, all of you watching tonight, to know that he has paid nothing in federal taxes because the only years that anybody has ever seen for a couple of years where he had to turn them over to state authorities when he was trying to get a casino license. And they showed he did not pay any federal income tax.”

DONALD TRUMP: “That makes me smart.”

No, if that’s true, it makes you a criminal.

Goodbye Condo

After being on the market for about 6 months, I finally sold my condo and had the closing last week!

I loved that condo and I spent 3 very happy years there. The condo was MY space that I owned and was a symbol of my becoming an actual adult. It was in the center of Buckhead and close to all the places and events a 20 or 30-something could ever want to attend. It was 3 miles from work so I never had to battle rush hour traffic. But as life changes, we often outgrow our spaces, and David and I outgrew that condo. We decided it was time to move into a house so we could have more space and a yard.
