I have to tell everyone who has been listening to my soap opera here I measured using that curtain type twine to see how long I would need for a decent jump rope and when I measured it - it was only like 9 feet per Jump Rope (The girls at my old school would have been thrilled with that... SO I set off for Lowe's thinking - Oh this should be good for the cost of rope. In actuality it was not that bad or expensive and I was pleasantly surprised with only .38 cents per foot of a medium grade rope like we used to use in the Gym class in school years ago. I did take the added step of getting that liquid black tape to dip the ends in and the total cost was like $18 and some change. In actuality just the rope was only like $10 or so for the 3 ropes. This way I can have one for the bus if We have a break and one at home and one as an extra if one gets lost or wears out on this carpet or the sidewalk. I think that will help at least to get some variety but I would need to do about one hour of that a week and the other two things I should be doing too. Now as I said we just have to implement it. Hopefully with the summer cooling down somewhat it will not be as bad on the heat and I am seeing some signs that things are dissipating and even the sound and the feel at night is different like it is winding down just like I have said in my previous notes. 2012 - hottest summer Ever!
