Mundane Ramblings

I've been trying to exercise 5 or so days a week now. Last year I did about 2 or 3, but that wasn't enough. So this morning I went to the Y again, and now I am sitting here all sweaty typing on the computer. Gross, huh? So has anyone read "Younger Next Year"? It's aimed towards people coming up to, or in, retirement age, but we figured it doesn't hurt to get a jump on things. Anyway, it's what is motivating us right now. Besides the fact that DH doesn't want to follow in his dad's footsteps and die young.

Outside, we are socked in with some kind of "inversion" thing. Basically, the cold is held in, but it is also damp like we are in a cloud/fog. Seems colder than when it is dry. We saw the sun here in the valley for a bit yesterday, and I hear if you get up the mountain a bit, you will be above the fog/cloud and see blue skies.

My dogs are quiet right now. I suppose someday I will need to post a picture of them. They are quite cute if not somewhat annoying at times.

It's so quiet here, I actually heard the heater come on. Really, I should go shower and get something done.

As I mentioned in my facebook status, I'm in the process of organizing and decluttering. I never can do it right. You are supposed to do little baby step and maybe one room at a time or whatever. But I always start in one room, but one thing leads to another and I've got the whole house turned upside down. Then it is overwhelming and I get burned out. So "focus, focus, focus". I say that to my kids all the time to. I wonder where they get the gene for being easily distracted?

The kids are just fun these days. I have separated their rooms (which, of course, currently look like tornadoes hit while we are sorting through everything). DS(7) is quite proud of himself that he has slept in a room by himself for 3 days now. And while DH(9) was looking forward to getting his own room, he is actually the one mourning the loss of having a companion in the room at night.

Ok, I know. Go take a shower...I am freezing here in the basement with this layer of moisture on me. The aforementioned heater, does not do justice in the basement.
