Thursday, January 6

I just wanted to see what it was like outside

Let's see...
a little cloudy.
chilly.
ahh....pretty cactus though..

OK - I feel like I've been holed up in the house for a few days..
takin' down Christmas.
Holy cow - what a process!  And I didn't even put out everything I
have, you know, because we moved in here at the same
time all the holiday stuff went up.

anyhoo

I did VERY well yesterday.  Seems all that is left is my Department 56 Village and
two trees.  The Village should take me, oh....about a week to disassemble....

But I did set myself an
EXTRAORDINARILY
realistic goal yesterday.
I planned on having ALL Christmas put away
AND
everything in this house organized the way only I like it
but the end of January.
All bedrooms, all closets, the pantry, the office, the garage,
the bookcases in alphabetical order, by author, size and color
and whatever else needs to be neat an tidy to not make me go
off the deep end...
I'm kidding, I am not THAT bad.
anyway
This will allow for everything else that pops up
that will require immediate attention...
swim meets,
driving to the pool,
grocery shopping,
and even a little "me" time.

Speaking of "me" time...
I have really been making a valiant effort each day,
you know - all three of them!!,
to get a little bit of exercise.
So I lied a little when I said I didn't get outside,
because yesterday I decided to take Lucy for a run.

Now before you get the visual on me actually running,
(omg I can't stop laughing just picturing that one, myself...)
Lucy ran.
I rode my bike.
Cesar Milan style.  (whom I love and watch his show incessantly)

Lucy FREAKED at first.
Probably something about spinning tires,
a large metal thing right next to her,
squeaking rusty chain noise...
I don't know - she was just kind of going nuts.
Til we got going a little.
Oh, and the fact that I lengthened the leash a bit too!!

So I was riding at a pretty decent pace,
and she was running.
Really running...her little "too-much-cheese" roly poly
sausage looking body keeping up with her cute little head.
Well, the too-much-cheese caught up to her after a while
and I decided to turn us around.  Started to head back
home at about the same pace, when she started choking and
yanking on the chain, until I realized we needed to just slow it down.
Then we were doing better.
Until she saw the family of quails pecking the ground around a tree,
making an awful lot of noise,
that she wanted to chase,
at which time she jerked me so hard I almost fell off my bike
in front of Hannah's school.
Now THAT would have been funny.

I was so excited to get back home, because I am thinking,
again - Cesar Milan style, that Lucy would be so tired out
that she would nap all day, and not bug me.

No such luck.

Well.  Off to do what I do.
Happy Thursday.
