The Crow

Boy did I get in trouble last night from Holly!!! Background info on Hol. She does not like to be picked, piddled, or played with. She loves to get rubbed on--it's the key to her heart. That and treats. Just don't mess with her. Don't touch her feet. Don't touch her tail. Don't look in her ears. Don't examine her belly. Don't look in her mouth. She does not like it nor does she appreciate it one little bit.
Last night she had something on her little chin. So I tried to get it off and she growled at me!!!! 'Holly stop it' I said to her, then tried again. Bigger growl this time. 'Holly. No!' I enforce...then attempt to wipe at it again. Then I got a very aggressive growl. That just made me mad. 'No Holly. BE SWEET.' I sternly said then gave her a light spanking. Well that just plain pissed her off. She ran away from me pouting then started faking sick.

This isn't the first time Holly has faked sick. When we lived in El Dorado she had a standing appointment with her groomer, Mrs Charlene, every Thursday. (If you say to her 'do you want to go see Mrs Charlene?' she runs and hides. Haha) Well eventually she became 'sick' every Thursday for no apparent reason. We totally fell for it for a few weeks until we realized--this dog is faking us out!!! Smart little booger.
Last night Holly sat by Scott on the sofa while she cut her eyes at me the entire time saying 'I do not like you right now.' She didn't decide to forgive me until this morning!!

So I'm officially very into Yoga. I love it!! It feels so good and it's helped me not be so tight in my neck and shoulders.
I don't know what is wrong with me when it comes to working out but I have to be the best at it. Have to. If I'm running next to someone on a treadmill I have a little race with them--even though they aren't aware that we're racing. If I'm running in my neighborhood and I'm about to die but someone can see me running--I keep running until they can't see me. I will be the best person in my pilates/cycle/physique/and now yoga classes. Will be. Even my instructors call me out on it. One day my pilates instructor said 'okay on a scale of 1-10 how hard do we want today to be? And Kara I know you want a 10 so you can't vote.'
So there was this one yoga pose that I just couldn't get. It's called The Crow and it's been bugging me so bad that I couldn't do it but I did it today and I was so, so happy. I made Scott take a picture of me doing it.I really thought it would take me a lot longer to get it down which is why I'm overly excited about being able to do it now. You have to hold it for 20 seconds. I'm very proud of myself :)
Lastly, my neighbor FINALLY had his yard mowed. You have no idea how happy that makes me. It was irritating me SOOOOO BAD. The poor mow guy had to rake up the grass because there was so much of it. I can't express enough how bad it was. Holly and I looked out of the window and watched with glee as the mowing process was taking place.

See you back here tomorrow!
