Talkin' 'Bout Walkin'

Let myself drive yesterday and today. Sunday: got groceries. Today involved a Great Circle Route of errands: Zupan’s for a cooking spice for the folks, Fred Meyer to drop off an order for photo reprints, the home where my mom’s mom Dorothy lives to see her and to drop up stuff for Mom to pick up later this week, then food at Taco Bell (I was weak, okay???!!! I mean, er, yeah) and picking up the aforementioned reprints at Freddy’s.

I walked much Saturday, plus a good amount Sunday. I made it to OBT Exposed!, by the way, walking all the way from home to downtown via the Hawthorne Bridge. That was two miles, plus general downtown-y wandering until I took a bus home. And I happily watched the Oregon Ballet Theatre dancers, who were clearly enjoying themselves: yes, ballet dancers smile, stereotypes to the contrary. My walking accomplishment on Sunday was walking up Pill Hill to OHSU, where I worked for a few hours, cleaned my office space, and booked my tickets to Reno for my cousin Steph’s wedding next month. I’ll experience the Bus of the Skies known as Southwest Airlines. Wish me luck.

And after all that footin’ around, I walked almost not at all today. Bitch-slap me, please? Shake me and say, “You need exercise, man!!!” After all: Calories are cheaper than gas.

    I've been sad today. It has been easy to think of sad things, and I've been thinking of them while not doing much else. Trying to think of happy…
