February has been an odd month weather wise. One day it is snowing and the weather is in the 20s, the next day the snow is melting and the temps are in the 50s. Yesterday we were in the upper 60s. I feel very fortunate that the weather has been good lately because my old treadmill broke. It was making so much noise that I couldn't hear the TV over the noise. This treadmill has been with me since 2000. For many years we used it as a clothes rack but since being active on Spark People it has gotten a workout. I felt like I lost my best friend when it went down. Thank God that Sears carried the part that I needed and that my husband Mike is knowledgeable enough to be able to fix it. My friend is back and I am ready to get back on in the morning.
My favorite part of each day is walking on the treadmill and watching the Dog Whisperer. An hour flies by so quickly. I get my exercise in and I get a lesson in training dogs.
My Maltese, Nicky is the perfect dog. When I tell him to do something, he obeys. He is the smartest dog I have ever owned. We were foster parents for a puppy in October. Needless to say that only lasted one day and we made that puppy part of our family and named him Noah. Mike calls him our junkyard dog because we don't know what mix he is. What we do know is he is happy here and makes our family complete.
When the weather gets warm and stays that way I will take the dogs out for a walk at our River Walk. I am looking forward to that day.
