Testing

I am slowly getting back into a routine at home.  It involves work and martial arts, of course.

I started work almost immediately after my return to the Seattle area.  It was kind of irritating.  My grandmother told me I should not have to work so soon after my return.  It was a transfer, and I arrived home a day later than expected.  I knew I would have to take off from work later that week because my household goods were being delivered.  No sense in irritating supervisors too much the first week.

I am taking three classes at my Taekwondo school a week.  I was very warmly welcomed back.  This weekend was the monthly color belt testing.  It was fairly small.  Next month's will be considerably larger, I am sure.  I was coaching the blue belts who were testing for midnight blue.  Thankfully, they all knew the forms and oral questions they would be expected to answer.  My only problem with them was they were not paying attention to what stances their feet should be in on certain moves during the forms.  But these are kids, so I was thankful I did not have to walk them through the entire form.

My cat, Cheddar, has been deemed the 'Botany Barber'.  He likes to munch on my parents' spider plants.  That would not be so bad if he were not coughing up what he munched on.  We have had to keep a close eye on him to make sure he is not sneaking a munch or two.  He also managed to get outside on Veteran's Day.  It was a very frightening three hours as I worried about whether he would come back in.  Another adventure occurred in the attic of my parents' house.  I did not mind this as much, probably because I did not find out about it until I returned home from work.
