I Did What I Needed To

Thursday, April 03, 2014

My oldest DD posted a bunch of furniture on Craigslist a couple of days ago, and because I'm off this week I have been the go-to for the people coming to see the stuff. Today there was some coming at 4PM and another couple at 6:30PM so I packed my exercise shoes and a Perry Mason DVD and off I went. I felt a little silly (and her cat was really keeping an eye on me) but I ran in place for an entire Perry Mason episode in her living room while waiting for people to show. I'm pretty pleased with myself that I actually did what I intended to do when I could have just plopped on her sofa and watched Perry instead.

I also got to walk outside early this morning and finished just as the freezing rain was starting. It was lovely. I considered walking just a bit longer but I'm glad I stopped when I did because it did become pretty slick pretty quickly. I long to ride my bike though. I think about it constantly and am hoping that I can get it out in a couple more weeks.

Tomorrow I'm heading out in search of some dress pants. Keep your fingers crossed that I can find something.

I will leave you with a saying I saw on Facebook today -
"If you cannot find a good companion to walk with, walk alone, like an elephant roaming the jungle. It is better to be alone than to be with those who will hinder your progress." -Buddha

    I'll tell you, when I read comments supposedly by the Buddha that sound like they are from the man off the street it makes me cringe! OK, vent over.

    That's amazing to get your exercise in like that! Real determination! And early morning walks are so invigorating. Great way to start the day.

    Keeping my fingers crossed for your dress pants. I'll be buying some too as mine are now two sizes too big.
