I am really surprised to report that I actually missed my walking over the weekend. I had to cater the synagogue’s Saturday Kiddush luncheon, so I was busy cooking and preparing on Friday and Saturday. By the time we got home from services on Saturday, I was pooped. I didn’t walk on Sunday or Monday, either, and I had trouble sleeping those nights.
This morning, despite Wizard’s incredible stupidity which made us all late and Wild Thing’s utterly lemming-like behavior*, I couldn’t wait to drop the kids at school and get over to the track. Radio Mom can confirm that I practically threw the younger two out of the car so I could get to my walk. I was so happy to get to the track, stretch a bit and walk. Thirty minutes and five laps around the track yielded 1.25 miles. Hooray for me! Hooray for the iPhone, too, with the built-in iPod. The music gets me going and keeps me going.
I ran home, showered and changed and ran back out to the local art museum. I attended a lecture by Olga Hirshhorn, widow of Joseph Hirshhorn (as in the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum), who discussed art collecting and her personal collection. I feel good, although my left knee is still not right. Time to call Doc Bro for a consult.
Stupid move #1: Wizard rode his new bike this morning before school. Didn’t eat breakfast. Didn’t pack his Hebrew School stuff. Just rode around for 45 minutes. Stupid Move #2: Wizard didn’t put his watch on because it interfered with his jacket. Stupid Move #3: Wizard and WT rode all the way to the entrance of the neighborhood without looking at the time. Lemming Move #1: WT blindly followed Wizard on his bike and didn’t pack his school or Hebrew School stuff. Lemming Move #2: WT, who always wears his watch, never even bothered to look at it when he left the house. I drove all the way to the neighborhood’s gate (0.7 mile from home) before I found them. I sent them home and waited for WineGuy to bring them down the street to me. I waited 20 minutes for those two idiots.
