What I did today

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

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.

    With cleaning, kayaking and running you are REALLY getting your exercise. I just caught up on your recent blogs. You are really working hard at your parents' house. I hope you are getting close to finished on that room. Stop by and see me on your way to Vancouver Island next year. I am 25 minutes from the Vancouver airport. I don't think you have to worry if you were a little over on your calories at the party, you are burning up zillions.

    Hmmm, was the other dog a challenge to Cooper or encouragement to get him to walk longer?

    You are so cool! I'm glad you are getting in so much movement. And getting so much done for your folks. That is terrific.

    I have my own opinions about 'stuffmart' it also is a stop of last resort, but is located on my walking route- good thing carrying parcels hurts my back- no temptation. enjoy your early night in.

    Busy day- we avoid Walmart too. Non union for one, and scary people in there.

    You pack in a lot in one day. How has your mother been handling the cleaning?
