making a list, checking it twice

So I did get to yoga class on Tuesday night, as it turns out. Not my normals one, but my second yoga place (the one I checked out when my groupon at the first place was running out before I determined I couldn't leave my first place, which I then also fell in love with). It was a good class. Hard. I felt every single day of the two weeks during which I couldn't make classes. But good too. I had a nice reminder at the end that how we see ourselves is always so much harsher then how others see us, and visa versa. My yoga teacher gave me a great compliment on my yoga, talking about my great flexibility (yup), and my strength (wait, really?!). I know I'm not a weakling, but sometimes I have trouble seeing myself as strong. Similarly, she talked about her "thick shoulders," when I have always admired her shoulders which look like they could be sculpted. We all judge ourselves harshly.

I haven't been sleeping well lately. I'm not sure why. I'll fall asleep well, and sleep heavily, but the second Gwen wakes me, even if I don't have to get up and go in to her, I'll be awake for anywhere from 40 minutes to an hour and a half before I can fall back asleep. It's been tiring. Though, that said, last night Gwen slept well, didn't wake, so I slept well also. Still, I'm so looking forward to Christmas and New Years and the days off that come with them.

Speaking of which, less then two weeks until Christmas! I can't even believe it. Most of our decorations are out, two of four (as of last night) all stockings are hung, the presents are wrapped, and Gwen has been happily counting down on the advent calendar. But the tree is not decorated yet finally decorated!, so the presents are just piled in my room I need to move the presents downstairs. I was starting to worry we would never get that tree ready, but wallah, it is done.

Where are you in your holiday prep? What's new in your lives?
