Now that Mini Mouth has surpassed the five-month mark and is ever more interested in the world around her (sigh, gone are the days of one-handed net surfing while the cute one slumbers in my lap), I'm finding it much harder to keep up with Wallet Mouth (not to mention other things, like email, my copyediting work, and, ahem, personal hygiene). Please accept my apologies for the lag. I shall persevere, however slowly.
This will be a short post. It's mainly just to say that yes, I'm still here; I'm just not e-here. It's also to barf out a few random bits, such as... I bought a new yoga mat after seeing two or three different stories within the same week talking about the fact that most yoga mats are phthalate-y (for more on phthalates, you can read my post on the sadly-now-defunct Alonovo Review here). I opted for Jade Yoga's "travel" mat, which is the same thickness as my previous, PVC mat and suits me just fine. I picked Jade's because (a) conveniently, I could buy it in person at my yoga studio, which is a member of the Green Yoga Association, and (b) Jade has partnered with Trees for the Future, which plants a tree for each mat sold. The natural rubber is a bit smelly, but it's not a horrible smell, and it should dissipate over time.
Uh-oh, Mini Mouth awakes. I guess that'll just be one random bit for this post, then.
Until next time...
