Random Five

I've been a huge slacker. I haven't participated in the last few Friday randoms. Heck, I haven't posted at ALL. Life is busy. Busy is good though :)

1: First & foremost, spring. This week has been in the 60's. My tulips & hyacinths are coming up. The grass is starting to turn green. I've even had my windows open for a short time a few days. Nice to air out our stuffy house!

2: Next week we will be back in the 40's. We do live in Wisconsin, after all.

3: With the nice weather, I've been able to go for some great walks. We live in a very hilly area, which equals a great workout. I walk 2.2 miles in about 20 minutes. I try to run for a few minutes, but I'm definitely a walker, not a runner. 

4: The first couple of times I walked, I got serious shin splints. My son pointed out that perhaps my 10 year old Target tennis shoes weren't cutting it anymore. So I went to Kohl's & used my Kohl's cash, a $10 off coupon & a 20% off to get a nice pair of New Balance shoes for just $24! 

5:We've been discussing possibly joining the Y. I'm all about getting in shape. I don't have a weight problem, but I am completely out of shape. Matthew is loving his weight training class at the high school. The other members of the family NEED to get some exercise. $80 a month for a family membership though. Ouch. We'll have to think about that one some more.

It's so nice to see the beautiful flowers after such a long, bitter winter, isn't it?
