Out And About
I finally felt well enough yesterday to leave the house for a little while, David and I did our weekly food shopping up in town. I spent most of my time sitting in the truck, but after a week of sitting in the house it was a welcome change of pace. I finally got an elipse!! which I'm very excited about even if I can't use it quite yet. I've been looking for awhile as the treadmill is tearing up my feet with repetition injuries but they're pretty expensive if you want a decent one and they don't come up used too often. While we were at Sam's Club we looked at thiers but it was too much. But in the back in the clearance section - there was not only an elipse, but a much better model. It was the old floor model and was marked down to less half the original price so we bought it. I'm keeping the treadmill as I'll probably be able to use it once in awhile in the future - we bought used for a great price and it still makes me laugh every time I think about it. It was originally about $500, had barely been used and the woman only wanted $75 for it. She told David it had been a Christmas present from her husband who had announced he thought she should lose 20 lbs. She decided it would be more beneficial to lose the husband and the treadmill followed shortly thereafter. We now have a lot of gym equipment but it all gets used and about 90% of it was bought second hand. If you look in the merchandise section in the classifieds you can find tons of barely used stuff for way less than the original price. In other news I'm considering having Jackson killed - he changed his mind about wearing the cap and gown and doing the graduation but never bothered to find out when they needed to be paid for (that would've been LAST week), so he got send into school this morning with a check and it hopefully won't be too late. He also wants to wear a tux to the prom but still doesn't know when that will be occurring so I suppose we'll just have to call the tux rental store and rent a tux for "whenever", hopefully they won't have a problem with that like I do.
