I’m really glad we got our own exercise equipment last year. I’m probably being paranoid; but I’m not going to the gym and using public equipment that some unknown person or persons has sweated on anytime in the near future.
I hate February. Right now, we’re having a wintery mix followed by a cold front. Its typical weather for this time of year. Its extra depressing since I was outside both days last weekend. It may be possible to be … Continue reading
We just received the postcard from the pool company that services our swimming pool scheduling the opening for the year. Its still months away; however, having a definite date makes the winter seem a bit shorter. It takes a couple of days to balance the chemistry and for the robot to get all the winter debris off the bottom. But, it’s still nice to look at even if we can’t swim.
Our microwave was finally delivered to the store. Unfortunately, I had to wait 45-minutes, when I stopped by on my way home after work to pick it up. Not because they were busy. But, because no matter how many times customer pick-up called or paged, the person assigned to get merchandise never came to help. The store manager finally went and found it and loaded it into my car. Have a great weekend. I know what Ill be doing on Saturday.
Tomorrow is St. Valentine’s Day. We’re planning to stay in although we may do something on Saturday when restaurants aren’t so crowded. Its just a “greeting card holiday”. But, it can still be a fun day just like Halloween. Friday is supposed to be one of the coldest days of the year. So, curling up on the couch has extra appeal.
Obviously you can’t tell from this week’s photos; but The Wife has really been building some tone in her upper body since we started working out more at home. In addition to being more convenient, we both seem to be having better workouts. We’ll still try and get outside whenever the weather cooperates. But, is nice to have a good backup option. Especially since winters are so long around here.
The Wife and I are really enjoying having exercise equipment at home. Especially on these cold, dreary winter days. We don’t have to get bundled up for the walk from the car to the gym. Now, our only concern is being too hot while we work out. And, if that is our only problem, then we really don’t have any problems.
We are back in the saddle today in more ways than one. It feels good to be back. I don’t know what we caught; but I hope to never have it again. The only “good” thing is that we really didn’t miss anything fun as we’re in the midst of a dark dreary winter. It hasn’t been bitter cold. But still not the sort of weather that we would have wanted to do anything outside.
