Walking alone

Today I finally got some alone time. The Princess started preschool today. She was gone from 10:15 to 11:50. I decided that while she was gone I would walk at our park. I did a Alzheimer's walk a few weekends ago. I walked 3 miles & I liked it. So today while the Princess was at preschool I walked 2 miles. I am very proud of myself. I hope I can do this 2 times a week. That's my plan anyway, but I have a feeling that it won't always work. It will be too cold(I hate being cold), we will need groceries, I will need a nap, you know, important stuff like that. I put on my IPOD & a cute little necklace thingie that holds a bottle of water & off I went. I learned a few things today. The first being I am not in good shape. I do need to lose a few pounds so maybe this will help. The second is I don't do hills very well at all. I have never walked the path at our park so I had no idea there were that many hills on it! I was really huffing & puffing by the time I got to the top of the first one. I was hoping there would be oxygen stations at the top of each hill, but there wasn't any. I guess it wasn't in the budget. I'm gonna have to go to the next town meeting & suggest that. There are quite a few hills on that trail. Hopefully I will get better at this. AND keep it up. That 's the problem right there. I always have these great ideas but my follow through sucks. What I should do is take Bailey the Wonder Dog with me. Lord knows she could use the exercise too. Might actually stop her from eating everything in sight. Maybe she would be so tired from all that walking that she would sleep the rest of the day. Hmmm, this could work!

I'm off to fold laundry. Apparently no one in this house knows how to fold. We can all however live out of a laundry basket. Some day that just might come in handy.

ah. feeling your pain. i used to walk around the parking lot at work every day, but about six months ago i got so slammed i barely had time to pee.

what, too much info?

and around here, it's not that no one knows how to fold laundry, it's that no one knows how to put it away.
