Walk it out

Saturday, March 20, 2010

It has been so beautiful outside over the last several days.

I got home from work a little later than usual this week, as it was my first on the job and I have a lot to learn! But starting on Wednesday, the weather was so nice that as soon as I was home, I was changing my clothes and grabbing Tessa’s leash. Every night, we’ve been enjoying a long walk route which takes us a little over three miles—which is a long way for little legs like Tess has! In turn, she has been one tired girl, and we’ve been tired, too—that fresh air is good for all of us.

Hopefully nice weather + new job is a worthy excuse for my lack of blogging the last few days?

Thanks to my new job, my husband and I work less than half a mile from each other now. It’s pretty awesome. Yesterday, he came over to my office and we ended up walking a couple of miles on our lunch break. It was nice to get out into the sunshine in the middle of the day like that, and nice to spend some extra time with Michael, too! And we STILL took Tess for a walk after we got home from work, too! Lots and lots of walking for this pregnant lady. :)

This morning, Michael went skiing with his dad while I stayed home and did some spring cleaning. My energy really is coming back (although I do find that I am still quite tired in the evenings!) and I decided to take on some areas of the house that have been seriously neglected throughout the past couple of months. What I really want to do is give this place a good, thorough vacuuming (edges, couch, blinds, ledges, etc.) but our vacuum cleaner is a piece of crap and there is hardly any suction in the hose, making all of the attachments virtually useless. We are getting ready to invest in a Dyson, but have yet to pull the trigger on that. You know you’re an adult when you’re excited about the purchase of a vacuum cleaner.

Anyway, by the time I was done scrub-scrub-scrubbing, it was early afternoon, Michael was home from skiing, and we decided to go on another long walk. Fourth day in a row—it feels nice to be active!

I want to get down on my knees and beg Mother Nature not to take all of this away from us, but it’s no use—the weather is supposed to be back to the “typical March” cold and dreariness early next week. Still, I know it’s only a matter of time now before we get this nice weather more consistently, and I just. can’t. wait.

Sounds lovely to be getting out and about!

It was nice over here at the weekend but back to cold again today!

Oh and I hear you on the Dyson, I convinced the other half to put the roller ball one on our wedding gift list and was so excited when some family bought it! Doesnt mean I will hoover though - thats his job!

We recently bought a Dyson and I highly recommend it! The vacuum cleaner we had before was ok we thought, but now with the new one you can see the difference. Absolutely worth the money (a lot lot lot of money ;))
not to mention that the old one was ugly, and the Dyson is pink :)
