Wastin' the day away

It is 9:30 am. I've been up since 4:30 am. I swam and since then I've been sitting here on my ass in the same chair staring at the screen! I need to get up and move. But, I need to write in my journal. So... here I sit.

  • Put the now recharged music player back in my swim bag
  • Hang up my suit
  • Check the insurance site for flu shot benefit points
  • Do laundry
  • Finish bag/make wallet
  • Take walk
  • Watch ballgame


That's my day plan so far. Once I get up, that is.

I did do more shoe shopping. After Amazon's batch failed and Zappos batch failed, I gave up on finding winter (non-sandals) shoes but this morning lifeinroseland posted about her new hospital clogs and I thought - THAT will work! Maybe. So back to Zappos and my options from there will be here Tuesday.

It's supposed to be cool today but the sun is out and heating up any chance... That walk I mentioned may well get cancelled. I'm not going out in glaring sun and hot. Just not.

Ernie should, though. Check it out. We're into Friday and he's still behind! Let's hear it for old ladies!!

I should explain that my 'steps' are not all dry land walking. Garmin gives me lot of 'steps' for swimming - about 7,000 give or take every day. So my steps are really cheating but I do not care. Please don't tell Ernie, though, k?

Ernie, oh Ernie

It's 9 pm in Ernie's part of the country and he's still behind. By 8,000 steps. I'm beginning to worry. Maybe he's broken. I sure hope he's planning to ratchet it up tomorrow and Sunday.

I did get stuff done today. The bag got finished but man, was it a hassle. That bag did not want to get made but I persisted. Then I did the laundry and folded it and put it away! And I did a dumpster run.

I did not get out to walk. I wanted to, but Ernie's having a hard enough time without my making it harder on him. Right???

Game tonight. But, first, a pork chop, pasta and applesauce for dinner.
