Heading out . . .

for a walk in the tundra. Ok, not quite tundra, but it's 30 degrees and I'm from the south. So, it's a tundra. This is part of my New Year's resolution--to walk everyday. I need to do other types of exercise, but I'm starting with walking. I think I'll be warm enough, but I'm not sure. If I stick with this for two weeks, I'm buying more workout clothes, maybe new shoes. Today, I am destination walking. I'm going to try for the Starbucks. I'm a reward person. I need to know there's good at the end of the pain. Once school and work begins again, I'm going to have to come up with a schedule. Do I drag my ass out of bed at 6:30 or do I walk the minute I get home, leaving dinner until 7 or so? Late dinner isn't bad for me, but I think the kids will starve. I'm thinking I can do 6:30 if I remember to set the timer on my coffee pot and have hot coffee waiting for me. I'll try it after I get back from my trip. If you're wondering why I'm writing this post and not running out the door, it's because I'm waiting for my iPod to update. All that "new" 80s music, you know. Speaking of which, here's a list (don't say I didn't warn you):

Dragon (Icelandic)--Sugarcubes
Arthur--Hoodoo Gurus
Three Little Birds--Bob Marley & The Wailers
Tennessee Jed--Grateful Dead
Waiting In Vain--Bob Marley & The Wailers
Walk Like A Man--Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons
