Nek minute: Cats and dogs, living together

So I cancelled my gym membership.

"WTF Tats?!? I thought you were a dedicated gym rat with the muscles and the protein shakes and stuff?"

Well, yes. And I want to be able to press a handstand and use my body well into my old age and all that good stuff.

I would like to add that while the current situation is a bit of a push, I feel very privileged to even be able to contemplate making the decision we have. I am very aware that this is enabled by having two decent incomes and another part time one contributing to our household. I am still gobsmacked every time I think about this, because part of my mind is still in the financial scarcity mode that it has spent most of its life in. I hope I never become complacent about financial security, but I can see how it happens, you know?

The decision to move has been a really, really good one in all other aspects. Our new place is quiet, roomy, sunny and pleasant. It has a garden! I didn't realise how much I'd missed having a garden until I got one again. And I find myself laughing a lot more these days.

What's not to like?
