Pudge is back from cat surgery. The vet said it went well, and that he was his normal self wiggling and flopping around. She called it his “alligator roll” whatever that is… Ok, I just Googled it. Consider myself informed.
His little arm and belly are shaved. It’s kind cute but also kinda weird. So many cat belly rolls. Pudge really needs to tighten his core. 😛 He’s on a 3-day pain shot, which is making him hilariously lovey. He’ll rub up against you and the couch and the computer and the shoes and the table. He loves everything right now. He’s always been the kind of cat who purrs as soon as you call his name, but hes definitely in the Valentine’s Day mood with his pain meds. He loves you, too, in case you were wondering.
Pudge loves the sink, too.
I have to take him to get his little belly staples out next Thursday, but he’s not allowed to be rowdy until then. Good luck getting Pudge to be calm. He’s the king of cat battles around here.
In other news, I’m determined to try my first Bikram yoga class tonight. I’m oh so very excited to get my sweat on, but also get back into yoga. I feel like I was a lot more put together and calm–less angry, in a nutshell–when I was getting at least one yoga class a week.
Nowadays, it feels like I get some sort of satisfaction out of being angry, if that even makes sense. Not to say I’m an angry person or I’m angry all the time, but I just felt like I had more control over my emotions–even if it was just in traffic–when I was getting my “om” on every week.
Not my best pic, but you get the idea.
There aren’t really any good places too close to where I am now, so I’m trying a studio that’s a tiny bit away from where I live. I really hope it works out because I really need to step up my game. I’ve been in an exercise rut for a few months, just going through the motions and heeding any excuse that lets me just flake off another workout. That’s absolutely not who I am, but I know what the problem is…
I’m bored with my current routine. I need something different, something challenging in a new way. I feel like I’m in this transitional stage where my body is saying, “Ok, we’ve done this for 5 years now. What else is out there?”
So wish me luck. I might pass out in the studio, I’m so out of shape. I’ll report back tomorrow.
