bundled up, walkabout, snow


Okay, the first step was waking up. :)

After I finish breakfast and my shower, I've already got another load ready to wash. Once I've got it started, I'll scoot to the grocery. Yes, I can handle this list:
    Monday - Pink
    Tuesday - Orange
    Wednesday - Yellow
    Thursday - Green
    Friday - Blue
    The Weekend - Purple

quick turnaround

The grocery shopping goes faster without the boys tagging along, thankfully. On the other hand, their presence slows me down by reminding me of food that have escaped the list. So we'll see what we do without, until the next run.

When I was passing the BP on the way out, there was a cherry picker there, and I was curious to see if the price was going up or down. On the way back, there was no change to the price, or the daily special announcement, so I've no clue what they were doing. Maybe changing a light bulb?

When I get back with the kids I'm granting rides, I'll be fixing lunch and then diving into cleaning the kitchen. fun fun

A new toy

I meant to post about this last night, and reset each night. Oops.

While I was shopping for Kittybane's birthday present, I found a cheap digital pedometer for me. It has a steps readout in addition to miles, and it also has a calorie readout, based on entering my weight.

I put it on before bowling yesterday, and found that I took over 2400 steps, just bowling. By this time today, I've clocked 11,046 steps. If they were all the 2'1" that I've entered for stride-length, then that would be 4.36 miles. It's only 478 calories, but it's something to measure, and perhaps to increase over time.

My plan is to report number of steps each evening before bed, and reset the counter.
