Things I’m doing to get out of this hibernation funk I’ve been in since the snow started:
- Train the dogs. I started practicing down with Riley and stay with Roxy, and I’m meeting with a trainer this coming week to work on leash manners and come when called.
- Clean the house. Our room looks like a cave. Clothes are EVERYwhere. And there’s stuff piling up on all surfaces downstairs.
- Get outside. Yes, it’s cold, so I won’t be spending lots of time outside, but it’s good for me to see the sun and breathe fresh air. Dogs like walks and so do I.
- Meet with the financial guy. I need to ask him tax questions and we need to finally pay off the student loan.
- Buy the new dining room table! But not until I’ve cleaned up enough downstairs and found places for everything so we don’t immediately cover our new dining room table in crap. But that might be today!
More later, I’m sure.
The snow makes running really difficult. Impossible, really, unless I’m willing to run in the street instead of on the sidewalks. I could do that in the neighborhood – you know, I might. I have to do something, and exercise DVDs just aren’t calling out to me. That should probably be #6, with eating right (and less) #7, but those are all-the-time things.
And here’s a picture for Corey. It’s me, wearing all the clothes I could find ’cause we were taking the dogs for a walk around the neighborhood, standing next to the biggest pile of snow we have. John took it Thursday evening, so there’s already been some melting and settling.
