Today was my third day of working on cleaning at my parents' house. So far I have filled 5 contractor's bags with garbage, the burn barrel once and the recycling bin 6 times... and I have only cleared about a fifth of the space. Ugh! I can see that I have made progress, but there is so much left to do, and my mom thinks she might come home tomorrow. This is a problem, because she doesn't like me touching her stuff, even though she hasn't been up there once in the last 4 years. So, I will go their house tomorrow morning, and put in a couple more hours, and then we will have to see what happens.
On a happy note, my brother wants to do a series of early morning kayak launches next week. We are slowly working our way up the Lake Erie shore line from Ripley to Buffalo. That is a lot of miles of paddling! Tonight we are going to visit mom at the hospital then going paddling at Presque Isle.
Oh, and I weighed myself on the clinic scale today, and it said that this 39 year old woman has the body of a 22 year old, and it claims that my body fat % is down around 20% now. All that running is paying off. I checked my total fitness minutes today, and I am at 134,539 minutes over about 780 days since I started tracking. That is an average of over 170 minutes a day. Nearly three hours a day! (Though of course some days I do a LOT more, and some days I only do around 120 minutes.) When I started tracking I was doing good to get in 10 or 20 minutes a day.
Made lunch for dad again today, since I was here and we were both hungry. I don't know what dinner will be since we will be out and about for that meal. Probably a sub from a gas station or something like that. Life is a little crazed right now, but things will start to even out again soon... I hope.
