A typical Canadian December day with snow covering everything in a white-still-pure and not yet stained by pollution. My gi and water bottle are packed in my kit bag and I am ready to get back on the horse and attend my second Aikido class....is there a horse stance in Aikido?
Anyway, the shoulder is still tender, and, being a side sleeper, I am still aware of it's plight when attempting to slumber. I will have to be careful.
I was going to attend class last night, but having worked seven days of 15:00-23:00 at the prison I hadn't seen my wife and daughter at all. So, the wee one and I did a bit of tobogganning during the day and I squeeked out a last minute one point victory over my wife in a game of "Carcassonne" by the warmth of our fireplace.
So, that being done, I am ready to roll (and breakfall, etc.)... though it was a roll that ingured my shoulder - yikes!
...A colleague also expressed interest in trying out a class, so he might be coming with.
