"I can name that tune in TWO notes!" That was a fun show back in the 70s. Saturday night at DJ's house found us playing a similar game. Tony Orlando was hosting an infomercial for Time Life for a CD collection of "romantic songs" from the 70s and 80s. As a clip would come up on the screen, we would all try to name the artist. The name of the song would be listed, and a few seconds later the artist's name would show on the screen. Yeah, sounds like a lame attempt at entertainment on a Saturday night, but it was fun to see who could call out the name first. I rather enjoyed the trip down memory lane.
Friday night I took the plunge and purchased a treadmill. My mom has one at her house that I could use, but that would involve too much planning (i.e. getting dressed and driving over there). I put it together on Saturday before going to DJ's, and had my first workout Sunday night after work. I use the word "workout" very loosely here. After ten minutes I was pooped. What's up with that? I can walk for a long time! Maybe it was the incline. Maybe it was the speed. At any rate, I'm good with 10 minutes, and I'll build from there.
A little funny thing to share: Friday morning I was getting my oil changed at Akins. They have this great little "internet bar", so I pulled up a chair and proceeded to check Facebook and work on my homestead in Frontierville. (If you don't know what it is, don't even ask!) There's a guy sitting beside me, and we're both busy doing our internet thing. The service guy walks in and says "Bueller?" "Bueller?" Fortunately the guy sitting next to me understood when I started laughing, and together we just cracked up. (Again, if you don't get it... never mind..) We had a nice belly laugh over it.
This is shaping up to be a busy week. Danette is setting sail today for an anniversary cruise, and I'll be working for her while she's gone. It comes at a good time for me, since I used my Danette stash to buy the treadmill. Now I can start adding back to my little mad money envelope. There is always something to come along and take my money, but I try to keep that money set apart, to save for special occasions, or something that I wouldn't ordinarily purchase.
That being said, I suppose it's time to get up and get busy working. It will be a long work-day indeed.
