Activity tracker, puppy, and other news...

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Well I got my activity tracker from work on the 7th of April. And I have to admit I like the little bugger. I was excited about it anyways, so it didn't have to try very hard to win me over. I decided on the free Virgin Pulse. I like that it has a read out that I can look at, and it gives me little encourages messages. I do find myself walking out to the mailbox and warehouse now. I look to see how many steps I've gone and it I'm close to the next thousand I go out to get paperwork in the warehouse or make a trip outside. It's nice haveing a little reminder right on my hip to get up and move.
Miss Sally May is 6 months old and we've had her for a month now. Again I can't say how much she's help me from just vegging out on the couch all evening. Especially now that it's lighter out longer I wait until Lorelei goes to bed then me and Miss Sally go for a 3-4 mile walk. Down side of owning a hound dog though is we've almost brough home a dead something on every walk. Couple times I have to reach in her mouth and grab said dead thing out. Here are a few pics of the Red Hellion...

Here is one of each week we've owned her. I thought she was going to grow faster so I was taking one every week. But they all look the same to me lol

Here is the latest one, this is how she sits on the couch all the time. On her butt, with her back up against the back of the couch.

Easter was pretty uneventful. Saturday Lorelei, my mom, my dad, and myself went to an Easter Egg hunt out at one of the outlining schools.

Lorelei had a blast and got a ton of candy!
After that we met up with some of our neighbors to walk down to a park and fly kites.

Sunday was just dinner with the family. Glad it's over. It was at my house and I felt like all I did all day was dishes.

Yesterday we had a 70 degree day so we did a little Geo Caching. Did some actual off roading with these ones. The first one we found pretty easy, it was hanging off a post right where we parked. I even forgot to take a picture of it. For the next one we had to walk down the road a ways and then basically climb up this hill and go back the way we came. Confusing, I know. If we were somewhere else we probably would have gotten lost, but we know the area. So after getting within 20 feet we start to get stumped. This is labled as a "large cache" so it should be pretty easy to spot and well there is really nothing around us but grass and rocks. Finally we spotted it ( hint: it's under the rocks on the ledge).

Inside were books and magazines that you could trade with one of your own. Because I was told that this one was out there somewhere I always put a spare book in out "treasure backpack" so Lorelei traded my book for a Winnie the Pooh book.

The next one was called Tinkerbell's hideout. This was a hard one. It was located on a bridge and the hints were more confusing than helpful. Kept saying the stick was so helpful. We were like, what fricken stick!?!? After 15 or so minutes we found it, I understood why a stick was needed.

Last but not least was the hardest of them all. It was on the River's Edge Trail, which is a pretty popular trail. So there is a lot of foot traffic and people looking at you funny as you turn over rock after rock looking for who knows what. We spent close to 30 or so minutes here. We were about to throw in the towel because after reading the activity on this cache it looked as though there were more "did not find" than "found". That was until the 4 year old found it.

She was so dang proud that she found the hardest one. Not to mention the people sitting on the bench trying to have a romantic evening overlooking the river where probably glad we finally found it lol.

It was a fun evening and we founf 4 caches. Now to map out our next outing!!

Now that's I've written a novel, I should probably get back to work. Tootles :)

    Lorelei is absolutely beautiful! The dog is adorable. Reading everything sounded pretty fun too! Watch the candy though! I've been pounding away at my daughter's Reese's Eggs. This year, she decided that she didn't like them so it is up to me to finish them! LOL!

    Great Blog! emoticon
