For once in my life, I’m going to keep a piece of writing brief. I just finished a long email to our builder about some remaining items regarding our kitchen renovation, and I don’t have much left in the tank now that it’s almost midnight. Lucky for me, Wednesday was my only Boston day of the week.
It started off by missing the bus, but the train I ended up taking probably got in earlier anyway. A quick check of Google maps traffic revealed a lot of dark red in the greater Boston area.
While I was able to play racquetball on Friday, I missed Monday due to work on the kitchen project. The weekend featured weather that was warm enough to get outside with the kids and build a huge snowman. Finally the snow was sticky enough to build with.
The next day the temperature dropped and eventually we got to below zero this week… the snowman isn’t going anywhere until May. My kids were very excited about that prospect!
My wife and I have been in a rut in terms of exercise, although she was finally able to get a few runs in this week. I am dividing my time between two houses, dog-sitting for my parents whose black lab is too old for a kennel– we got him when I was a senior in high school. I guess that officially makes me old :-). Between that and the kitchen renovation and the arctic weather, the deck has been stacked against me. So with that, I present my goals for the next 5-6 days:
play racquetball; do lunges; get back to the ab DVD with wifey!
If I can do all of those things by my next post, I’ll be satisfied. Then next week’s goal will be to make concrete plans for some ski trips. I don’t drink much, I don’t do drugs, and I don’t take any medication… but if I don’t go skiing soon, I’m going to have to re-write that entire last sentence. At least there’s plenty of snow left!!
