I will be the first to admit it: I am terrible at blogs. I think I have had 5 or 6 now, starting in high school with a (joke) counter-blog to Adam Jackson Online supporting our seventh President Andrew Jackson. They've each lasted anywhere between three days and two months, and chronicled everything from news about my life to updates to an unsuccessful book club I started. Anyway, my point is, my blog track record is terrible. But I'm trying, and this new joint collaboration between myself and Adam is my current attempt. I hope this blog allows me to share some of my insight and I ideas and, frankly, I started it to be cool. Blogs are so in right now.
Adam and I took a big leap yesterday morning and joined Fitness 19. The last time we were gym members was the year before our wedding, and we quit when we moved from Sand Point to Ballard (and, honestly, we hadn't gone in months). So, it's been awhile. I told myself I didn't need no stinkin' gym, I could go on walks and do my sweet Zumba DVD in the spare bedroom. One year and countless pounds later, I am no closer to being physically fit. I'm hoping I can make my trips to the gym a standard part of the week. I've finally come to terms with the fact that I hate exercising. I know that's terrible, but it's true, and I'm working through it. I worked out yesterday, and with today looking gorgeous I am hoping to take a walk through the neighborhood.
In more happy news, I finally executed my plan to give Greta a Christmas photo shoot. I got the idea from Pinterest (which I discovered through Rebecca Orr - thank you!). The original photo, shown below, is a dachshund strung with Christmas lights. I thought if we did this with Greta, it would be a cute addition to our Christmas card photo, which is Adam and I (unshowered) at Crater Lake last June. Next year's goal - actively try to have more pictures of Adam and I together. Our vacation photos include one of me in front of something, and then one of Adam in front of the same thing. Stupid PNW-too-afraid-to-ask-strangers-to-take-our-picture-it's-stupid-I-know Syndrome.
The dog is so cute! And the lights are so perfectly string.
Next up on my craft agenda: ornament wreath. It's supposed to be easy: take a wire coat hanger, stretch it out, string some cheap ornaments on there, and clamp it back together. TBD on that one.
