I Would Walk 500 Miles

DaGoddess @ 21:34

I have set a challenge for myself and I am determined to make this happen. By the end of 2011, I will have walked 500 miles. That’s my goal and I’m already four miles closer to the finish line.

I started walking yesterday, thinking I’d just go to the end of the big block…but I kept going. Before I knew it, I’d walked two miles. Today, I did the same thing. Other than muscles that are screaming nasty things to me, I feel pretty good.

I’ve had to add an extra dose of pain meds to my day, but it’s worth it. First off, I need to get in better shape. Secondly, I need to get my festival legs again. Those are some long days and there’s a lot of walking involved. Mama has to be prepared! And thirdly, dammit, it’s nice to have a big goal, which is what came to me in the shower after today’s walk.

It’s a bit crazy, yet totally attainable.

Yes, I live in a very warm place and summer walking will be a bit more difficult. Still, I know it can be done.

So, are you on board? Do you think I can do it? Anyone willing to spring for a pedometer? Anyone think I’m nucking futs?

He went home.

The week went by too quickly.

We had a great time and did a lot of fun things. There are so many other adventures still to be had and I can’t wait for LD to come back.



It’s Like Home Again

Got LD here with me. He flew in Friday, with his flight delayed 40 minutes. Didn’t understand why until after he landed and I saw the news about the Southwest flight in Arizona that had the roof rip open. I’ll take a delayed flight anyday if it means they’re checking the planes thoroughly.

After he got in, we headed to Denny’s for a late night breakfast and silliness. Saturday we took our time getting started and then headed out to see a show. Sunday, it was horses and then a show (same one…we’re so predictable). Yesterday was nothing but a lazy day, which was just what the doctor ordered. We were wiped out from a few late nights.

Today we headed up to Mt. Charleston and Lee Canyon. OMG! Gorgeous! Stunning scenery. Mt. Charleston area still has plenty of snow on the ground, so LD went and played. Crazy kid. It was a joy to watch.

It’s been good having him here. I’ve missed the kids. And even if I only have one here with me for a few days, it makes everything seem a little more like home.
