Cooper walked a little farther this morning. We did 3.3 miles. I was also walking a neighbor's dog, so things got a little interesting... with one dog going right and the other going left. Contrary pups! I also ended up carrying Cooper part of the time. Got home in time to eat and brush my teeth before I had to leave for the dentist's office. My teeth are good, and now they are really clean and shiny. On my way back into town I stopped at Walmart to get a birthday present for my best friend and a few groceries. I HATE Walmart. I won't go there unless I have to, but it was the only place to get the present, so I gritted my teeth and went. Got out with minimal damage. Came home and made a few phone calls. The reservations are made to go sea kayaking in 2014 with my niece and brother out Vancouver way, Then I went for a run and a walk. I only ran 1 mile. My knees are still stiff, so I thought I would go easy today. But I walked briskly for over 2 miles afterward. I also did 2 SP videos. Then I set off for my best friend's birthday party. It was supposed to be a cookout, but it was sprinkling, so we ate indoors. I ate too much, but the food was all really good, so I don't regret a single bite. There was some strangely morbid conversations at the dinner table, but I had fun. Afterward I went to pick up the dog from my parents' where he spent the afternoon. So, it is 8:30 and I am just getting home. I should see if the dog wants to go for one more walk, but I think he might be done for the day.
Tomorrow I am off to clean at my parents' house again, then probably going kayaking in the evening. The cleaning is definite, but the kayaking is tentative. We shall see.
