Walking into February

It's the last day of January! First, I'd like to say, "GO, PACK, GO!!!" The Packers are going to the SUPERBOWL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay!!!! They are playing the Pittsburgh Steelers! Arthur and I are gonna get our co-hosted Superbowl party!!! But more on that later this week. ;)

One of the New Years resolutions I forgot to mention was I'd like to keep track of how many miles I walk each week. Here's the count so far (I think):

Week of January 2nd: not sure, but I think it's 0 (need to check bus pass)
Week of January 9th: 12 miles
Week of January 16th: 3 miles
Week of January 24th: 7 miles
(you get the general idea)

The first two weeks of January I'm not sure of at this point-I need to find the bus pass I had at the beginning of the year (if I still have it-I use 5 rides so each of my rides will be marked) and I need to check the weather-we had a bit of a melt down, so the sidewalks were clear for a brief time (biggest problem with walking in winter: walking through snow the snowplows from the street have tossed onto the sidewalks) I will update my mileage later this week.

I know I won't be able to keep track of every mile I walk, but I'd like to try to get a general estimate. ;) I'm already planning on how to keep track of the laps I do for Relay come April.

Here's hoping I can keep up with this! It will be interesting to see how much walking I do in an entire year.

Congrats, Bert Blyleven!

Just wanted to say congrats to new Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven! (Twins pitcher, 11 of his 22 seasons in baseball-including the 1987 World Series!)

Cooperstown calls for Alomar, Blyleven

Congrats to Alomar, too!! Both well deserving! :)

Welcome, 2011!!!

Happy New Year!!!

So I meant to write more while on vacation, but alas, it didn’t turn out that way. ;) I ended up being really busy-I mean, seriously. Since I wasn’t going to Minnesota this year (waahh), I thought this would be a nice, boring, relaxing vacation. Well, it was nice, and relaxing (when I actually had the chace to sit down!) It certainly wasn’t boring!

I had a plan-seriously I did-I even had what I was going to do before Christmas all mapped out-just ask my friend Sharon. ;) However, I should have known better. Somethings took a little longer than anticipated, other times I didn’t know how tired I actually was until I woke up from a long (but much needed) nap. LOL. Long phone conversations with family and friends far away. Then there were gatherings with friends here that I hadn’t originally planned (but was certainly not going to turn down!) It seemed I was always on the move. In fact, Monday was the first (and only!) day I didn’t go ANYWHERE. (ended up doing dishes, laundry, and finally finishing the latest season of “Ice Road Truckers” (the original-the spinoff is still in my dvr-LOL)). BTW-at the start of my vacation, my dvr was 97% full-I got it down to 66%! Woo!

I could list all of my New Years resolutions, but some are on a more personal/private level. So I’ll just list a few that aren’t so personal/private. ;)

-blog more : I’ve had a terrible time writing here the last couple of years, but if I can keep up the trend I started in November, I might actually do ok.

-find a different mode of exercise for when I can’t walk to work (because of the weather or when on vacation) Seriously-walking is awesome-may take a while to get to work, and I might complain sometimes, but I’m not complaining when my jeans feel loose around the waist-and not because they are too stretched out! ;) Gotta find something to supplement when walking on a regular basis is not possible.

-be a better daughter. Seriously, I need to call my Mom more-and not just when I’m not feeling well and need to hear my mother’s voice to make me feel better. ;) (Love you, Mommy!)

Well, I think that’s all for now. I just finished the last episode of Caprica-I have mixed feelings about it-if I can get it together, I might write a review/summary of it...although I’m terrible at writing reviews-I’m still trying to write a review of Prophecy of the Kings which I finished reading a week ago. 0:-)

Before I go, I’ll leave you with a couple of pictures of my Christmas Village and Christmas Tree for 2010. Hopefully I’ll get around to posting more pics before February. LOL!
