Okay, I have to start with, I LOVE this song...
It reminds me of my husband:).
Also, I was misleading yesterday when I said that I had joined Amy's challenge. I will be joining Amy's challenge, but it hasn't actually started yet. I was more inspired by Amy's challenge and decided to start my virtual walk to Lisbon. But I have given myself a year to get there, so I am really adapting Amy's challenge to fit my own needs. And, Dylan and I have the deal if I walk 1716 miles in one year (by February 4th, 2009) that I get my trip to Lisbon!
That said, this morning I only went 3.25 miles (that's because 2 children woke up early and came and sat by the treadmill to talk to me while I was walking, which is something I cannot do). So now there are 1708.59 miles to go!
Dylan has suggested that I walk to and from Toby's school. While that's a fantastic idea, the sidewalk doesn't actually start for a mile and we're sure to get killed walking on the road. So perhaps I will park somewhere and walk with Blaise, and then with Blaise and Toby. But I'd been thinking about that and the weather has been nice. So that would be a 6-8 mile round trip. Maybe I'll start doing that when Amy's challenge actually starts (watch out competitors!).
And today is Fat Tuesday, so we're being pigs today! I sent Seth to school (actually, I totally forgot to make him a lunch today, so I had to make a stop at the embassy co op and pick up some junk food) with cheese crackers, Kudos M&M bar, Snapple, a cheese stick, and a box of raisins (you know, for health).
