Got my rebounding done this morning. Day one of my rebounding streak, again. I messed around last night after I got home and didn't do my rebounding at all. Then it turned midnight and there I was - busted! I decided to get some sleep and then start my streak again later this morning.
We went to the symphony this afternoon (we budget and get season tickets so it's kind of a built-in "date" schedule too.), and then met my mom for dinner, and I was feeling itchy when we got home. After we got home, I had already decided to take it easy and go to bed early this evening. Well, Jon came downstairs a few minutes ago and announced that he needed only about 300 feet short walk to finish his Spark Tracker for the day (11,000 steps is his goal - go cheer him on at SPOCKKS ).
So, I thought I could handle a short walk and off we went, walking together. Got past the water tower and "Twinkle Toes" lit up, announcing he was done, but by then I wanted to "finish the block". We kept walking around "the block" (our "blocks" are not the nice neat checkerboard rectangles like the rest of Wichita, where it is 8 blocks to a mile going N/S and 16 blocks to a mile going E/W. Our "blocks" look like slubs of odd-ball sized pasta. Consequently it's harder to calculate mileage.). Got done with the one block and I was enjoying talking, and I decided to do a figure 8 around the other "block" west of us,
Was nearly done with that block and had gotten back to our street when I realized the rumbling and tooting wasn't just the tummy excited to be walking, but that I needed to off-load some baggage and pretty soon. We began walking faster and faster. Pretty soon I began thinking of the famous book "Fifty Yards To The Outhouse" by Will E Makit and Betty Dont. I asked Jon if he ever read that one, and he picked up the phone and called DS, telling him "Mayday! Emergency! Unlock the front door, don't ask questions, open the door, get out of the way, here comes your mom!" And off I trotted rapidly on down to our driveway, unbuckling my britches as I got closer! Got them unzipped at the door and MADE IT to the loo!
(These were nice new Ponte knit pants I got from Lands' End last month, so no, I didn't want to mess them up!!).
So hey, got my rebounding streak re-started and got a walk in AND a short jog!!
Hope y'all have a great week! Keep all your FurBabies inside this week, especially if they are black furry FurBabies - don't want to hear of any harm coming to them!!
Now to get to sleep before 11 or at least 11:30!!
