It Was SUPPOSED To Be A Good Day!

I did my little bike ride thingy this morning. I was waiting for a check to come in the mail today, and it didn't. I had to light the pilot on a water heater. I learned that a pilot with light much easier when you have the gas valve turned to "ON." Once I did that, WHOOSH! I did check and I do have eyebrows (along with all the other facial hair that I would LOVE to get rid of!).

I did have a NSV today! I did not require help from the dude at the hardware store to carry my three five-gallon jugs of water to the car. I took all three trips, I didn't pull anything, and I feel stronger for it!

I also saw this girl, who had a MAJOR crush on my husband when she was in 6th grade and he was in high school, who is also aDORable say, "Mandy! You have lost weight! Look at you!" So I did a little pose, stuck my butt out and said, "I know you want me!"

I also saw a bunch of other people when I was riding my bike who said things like, "Nice bike!" "I like your basket!" "Aren't you just the cutest!" Well, "Yes, Thank you, and YES!"

So I really can't remember much that was TOO bad about today, so I will call it a Good Day! I ended up riding 4.59 miles today! I still have to walk with the crazy neighbor lady tonight. I'm kind of tired, so I wouldn't mind a break, but she'll probably drag me out of the house, so I'll go. FINE! I SAID I WILL GO!


  1. Neighbor girl won't be home until way after dark, so we're not going, but I did get my oldest son to go for a 1.893 mile walk/run. It was a lot of fun!

    6.35 miles on Betsy Bike.
    1.893 mile on foot.
    Not bad for a Friday!

  2. Thats AWESOME!

    Tell oldest that I walked further than him yesterday. See if he can beat me today.
