Blogging About Nothing Really

Just thought I'd do a quick post. I love reading Susy's 100 list. I worked in the yard the last 2 days about 2 1/2 hours each day. I just look back to before the surgery and I would have never attempted that. I wouldn't have wanted to. But now, I look forward to going outside to work in the yard, not really because I enjoy it because really I'm not a big outdoors working in the yard kind of person, but because I can. I can go and squat and kneel and bend and do yard work without feeling like I'm going to die after 10 minutes. Another thing, going up in the tree house and swinging on the swing set. I can do those things. Athena and I had a picnic today in the tree house. I climbed up the ladder like 3 times and went down the slide too. We also did some swinging. I wasn't like "Am I going to break the swing", I just enjoyed my time outside with Athena. It just amazes me how much energy I have. Now if I can just get myself to work out. That is one thing I just really have no desire to do. I've always hated exercise. I'd love to start playing tennis but I have to find someone and the time. I'm hoping to go get a trailer for my bike so we can start riding this summer. So summer plans for family exercise:

Swimming at the HOA pool
Bike Riding
Possibly running (I won't hold my breath)
Find someone to play tennis with at least once a week (I'm thinking my dad once he gets out here next month)

We'll see how many of these things I actually do. I really really really want to become more active and get my children up and going more than they do now!

Amber--love your blog and am so proud of you for everything you're doing! I had a random thought this week too that I really wanted to play tennis again too--too bad we're not near each other--we could bring up old rivalries!!!

Your doing such a great job. At least your in the yard and moving. I bet it looks great. I have not yet been in my yerd to clean it as it won't stop raining long enough! LOL :)
