Springtime, a ringy dingy ding time... birds sing...

I went outside for a walk up Massachusetts Avenue today to run something up to the hotel for a visitor, and I didn't want to come back to the office afterwards. The weather outside is sunny and mild and simply perfect. Everyone I talk to agrees that it is so nice to have spring in New England again, despite the doom and gloom of the Channel 5 news last night talking about brush fires and bugs. Brush fires and bugs are nothing in comparison to daffodils, tulips, hyacinths and robins building their nests. And I don't even LIKE birds.

I keep forgetting my coat places. I think that it is because when I go to the places it still is on the cooler side, but when it is time to leave, the day has really warmed up, and I just don't THINK "I had a coat when I came in because it was cool." Yesterday I had to drive all the way back to Concord from Cambridge because I realised that I had left my coat at our book club hostess' house. Thankfully, I remembered it before I got COMPLETELY home.

At book club yesterday, where we BARELY talked about the book, the subject of clothing sizes (including the clothing conspiracy that I mentioned in my previous post) and dieting and exercise was a hot topic for discussion. I really need to drink more water and start driving less and walking more. I have been so bad about going to the gym since my bad cold at the beginning of March, but I am going to go workout today after work. I had been going for exercise walks outside, but there is something about the pace on the treadmill or on the elliptical machine that can't be duplicated when you are walking outside. And I really need to back on the caffiene again, although I am NO WHERE NEARLY as bad as I was a couple of years ago. One large coffee and one 12 oz can of Diet Coke a day really isn't bad in comparison to the 3-4 liters that I was drinking per afternoon of the stuff. But I would like to be in better shape for my 10 year college reunion next month, so that when we climb all those stairs at the Cross, I won't have a heart attack or stroke. Not eating crap at meals and getting more sleep probably wouldn't hurt either.

I haven't really said all that much lately about things going on in the world or with the US government, mostly because I just find everything too absurd to try to make sense of it all. My standard MO is just to shake my head woefully. For I am indeed, full of "woe"; I am also full of "whoa."
