Uggghh.

 

 

trying to motivate myself to exercise.

 

Is it nice out? If so, start off by just going for a walk around the block or something.

Not a bad idea. I've been laying in bed, refusing to do anything but DM. I haven't smoked though so that's a plus.

Mountains. Even better for walking. If I were to live in the mountains you'd probably barely find me inside.

Until winter. Brrr...

Negative. That's play time. Summer is for working and money making, winter is for snowboarding and snowmobiling.

In the mountains, it is the winter time when you make the money. You have to get your playtime in during whatever free time you have, but the crowds are in the winter. For people who don't live in the mountains, it can be the other way around, especially if you work construction or the like, but most of the people who live in the mountains work their asses off in the winter, at least in Colorado. Of course, you could live in a town that isn't a ski resort, if you're lucky enough to find a job.

 

Anyway, I never learned to ski, and I stopped liking the cold about five or six years ago, in my mid-forties.

Yeah, I'm in construction lol. That's why winter is play time.

 

I've had friends in the lodge industry, but we don't have a big lodge nearby, so it's only open on weekends. Which isn't enough to pay the bills.

 

So I bust my rump in the hot season and I enjoy the cold season.

 

Besides, the heat makes me lethargic and sad.

Yes, it used to do the same to me. When I worked construction (I built timber retaining walls for a decade or so), I worked all winter long, but when I worked road construction (I was a flagger for traffic control, then a TCS--a traffic control supervisor, the one who sets up and takes down the closure, drives the truck, assigns the flaggers their duties, deals with the contractor on site, etc), I took a layoff each winter. Somewhere in my forties though, a switch was flipped, and I started becoming more tolerant of the heat and less tolerant of the cold. I am beginning to understand why old people retire to Florida, although having gone to boot camp in that muggy nastiness, I would never live there, myself. I couldn't handle the desert either, because I don't want to interact in any way with scorpions and tarantulas, but perhaps the Carolinas some day...

    • I just made you this siggy as a welcome gift. I wasn't sure if you were Kull after the movies, metal band, or comic series so I avoided using it as the theme lest I get it wrong.   For copyright reasons, I'll say I used the font Bleeding Cowboys from UrbanFont and this image : https://wallpaperplay.com/board/awesome-fire-wallpapers   You have to use it if you don't want to I just thought you might like one 🙂    
    • the future seemed to change when the Aiel were added to Dragon's Peace.  
    • as far as I recall, Mary Poppins did not have direct contact with the old man. from my understanding, Compulsion requires direct contact.   world of dreams; going there seemed to be the children's idea.  and also Bart's.  not Mary's. and she seemed to not attempt to control them.   time traveller; that seems doubtful to me.     Mary Poppins seems to be an ethical person.
    • Welcome to Dragonmount Norma! I made you a siggy as a welcome gift. I noticed you're a red head like I used to be until my luck ran out so I thought this would be cute. You don't have to use it if you don't want to though 🙂   For copyright reasons, I used the font "Children of the Light" from UrbanFont and this image : http://www.wallpapermaiden.com/wallpaper/5602/redhead-model-reading-a-book-fall-forest-trees    
    • Unless the glass pillars depict the most likely scenario... they depicted Randland divided before the Seachan.
