Yoga, Gasoline, and Yummy Nutella...
I went this morning to fill up my tank because gas had gone down to $2.89 a gallon--and the numbers kept going up and up and up. I stood there in disbelief as the little digital screen went up past $25, past $30, and even past $35. I put $37.50 worth of gas in my car! It was a total shock to me--that is the most I've EVER spent for a tank of gas in my life! And I used to grumble when gas went up to $1.50--boy, how I miss those days!

Then again, though, since my commute has been cut in half, I only fill up about every week and a half, up from once every four to five days when I used to work downtown--yet another reason I'm thankful they cut me loose!

Went to my first real yoga class last night. It was...interesting. The class was held in the cafeteria of a high school, and the instructor was a diminutive woman from India, I think. I had a very difficult time understanding what she said, so I just watched her as well as the other students. I felt a bit intimidated because it seemed that everyone else knew exactly what they were doing and I was sitting there, in the front, no less, feeling slightly out of place. I didn't let it deter me from my workout, though, and did come out of it feeling renewed and refreshed. I will go back, of course, since I paid for 8 weeks of classes, but I have to say I think I like practicing on my own better than being in a group environment.

Work's going well. I'm preparing a competitive analysis to give to my boss for his upcoming meeting in Japan next week, and I got to meet the entire office this morning, too--mine is a small company of about 65 employees. When I got back to my desk I ate my favorite new snack--cinnamon graham crackers and Nutella spread. Man that stuff's good!!!!

Anyhow, back to work!
