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...

    • Is Mary Poppins Black Ajah? Did she draw children into the dream world without their consent? By the end of the movie Mary murders a man. And Mary flies like the woman in Egwene’s first visit to Tarabon in the dream world. Also many of the other mechanics in Mary Poppins’ presence can only occur in the dream world. 
    • It should be possible to draw water with only Air or only Water. Admittedly I can think of no reason why a woman would use Earth when it is unneeded and she is weaker in Earth, but it seems far easier for a channeler to use a taught weave than invent a weave. It may have been unintentional difference by the author, but it isn’t a problem. There may be countless ways to draw water, but the basic forces seem to be pressure/force to move the water and constriction/direction to guide the water.
    • When my baby was over six years old, he became incredibly picky about food. He refused meat, fish and some vegetables, it was a real hell. I didn’t know what to do with this for a long time until my girlfriend advised me to try to diversify his diet and start using an emeril hot air fryer. It was a good idea as it does not require a lot of oil, which means it is healthier than other deep fryers or grills. I found some good reviews on this site  https://bestairfryer.reviews/emeril/ and decided to try. The child was pleased and began to eat at least meat again.
    • Hey, I can post!    Unfortunately, it's very late and I've been in the car all day. We drove a friend of our hostess back to his home in Idaho (4 hours each way). His truck broke down and our friend, C, was not up to making that trip due to her health issues.   But we did stop briefly and had a quick snowball fight with the boys!
