After the craziness of the last month or so, and the amount of STUFF I've had going on, it is very nice to have a full day of nothing but the deadlines of birdsong and bike rides to define my day. I slept in, mosied around, dusted, did some vacuuming but not all, ran the dishwasher, put up two more window screens, ate lunch, fed the kids and read half a book. That, my friends, is one lazy day for me! :D I just showered and am going to the grocery store to pick up "cellar-smoked" ham for the baby shower brunch tomorrow and I have to wrap a present and exercise. Those are my sole goals for the day. I even talked Anders out of inviting people over for dinner so we could have a full day with no plans.
After nearly 4 weeks of power-walking I've developed some sort of pain in my right shin that comes on after about 10 minutes of walking and makes it very painful to get through the half hour. Anders thinks it could be caused by walking on hard surfaces. I'm going to try bike riding for half an hour each night for a week instead and see if that rests it enough. Otherwise, I'll have to find alternative exercise ideas to use with walking.
After having started three paragraphs with the word after, I think I have to go do something else now.
