With a subject line like that, you know you're in for some bloggy goodness, no? Well, unfortunately, I don't have much of interest to discuss today. However, I haven't let that stop me over the previous 299 posts, so here we go...
I got up at 6:00 a.m. and embarked upon the first day of my new exercise regimen, i.e. 30 minutes on the treadmill while wearing my iPod Shuffle. I lasted about 20 minutes, mainly because my athletic shoes started trying to saw my feet off from the heels forward. I think I may need to invest in a more comfortable pair (or go back to an old pair).
Anyway, considering that most of my walks in the last eight months or so have led to and from Starbucks or a food court, I'll chalk it up as an adequate and well-intentioned start.
On another topic, our betta fish are no longer living lives of complete solitude. My husband added otos to their tanks to help keep the algae under control. They're weird little catfish that mainly fasten themselves to the tank walls or floor to eat algae, but are prone to excitedly zipping around the tank with no apparent provocation. One of the bettas likes to chase his oto around, but the other one ignores his new tankmates.
This week is decidedly less busy than the last few weeks (or the next few weeks for that matter), so I've been able to cook dinner two nights in a row. On Monday night we had chicken creole and last night I made chili. It's left the house smelling pleasantly of onion and garlic and may very well prompt me to make something good for dinner when I'm on my own tonight. I'm overdue to break the "popcorn for one" dinner cycle.
I received an Amazon order yesterday and I've already made it through one-and-a-half of the three books I'd ordered. I was particularly impressed with Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy by Geralyn Lucas, which I read for a work project. It's a powerful and raw memoir about the author's experience with breast cancer.
That's all for today, folks. I have to make myself presentable and run some errands before work. Have a lovely Wednesday!
