MAKING PROGRESS

Well, I just got off the treadmill! I walked for a total of 30 minutes and went a mile at a speed of 2.3 mph! Got my heart rate up to 125 which is good for me since I am on a calcium channel blocker and a beta blocker and the tend to keep your pulse and heart rate pretty low; like in the 50's.

Have a very busy day ahead of me. I have to go to the store and buy the ingredients to make Rice Pudding to take to my granddaughters school tomorrow morning for Grandparents Day. And my middle son is bringing his two little ones (age 3 & 2) over at 5:30 so we can watch them while he goes to his Christmas Party from work. They will be here until between 9:30 and 10:00 tonight. These are the same little ones with the Mom who forgets to pick them up! I asked my son if I were going to be "burned" again this time and he assured me that I would not. Time will tell. I haven't seen this children since the last time I watched them and posted about them and they only live about 6 miles from me. That was quite a while back now, I hope the 2 year old won't scream when he leaves her!

I also have to get busy today and wrap some of the presents that I do have. I don't want to leave it all for the last minute and have it be too big a job all at once. The usual granddaughter will be coming this weekend and I need to wrap hers and hide them in my closet. She's not a snooper, but I don't want her to find them in the coat closet where they are now stored.

So, I'm off to run my errands!

Wrapping is my favorite part! If I lived closer I'd gladly come over and do your wrapping for you!

Holiday bustle and all that! If the 2 year old scream, just give her candy. That usually works and you can secretly get back at her parents that way. ;)

naive-no-more, the kids were really good and they even got picked up on time. (I gave them ice-cream even though they didn't eat their supper!)LOL ;)

You know I've never had rice pudding. Makes one wonder what it would be like?

:o) (that's my bear smiley...I have a Vermont teddy I sleep with, so when you see that smiley now you know.)
