Lucy wanted to say hi to the blogosphere, but then she got distracted by a bug on the ceiling. In fall and spring, we get an amazing number of box elder bugs and Asian lady beetles that flood our apartment. Lucy has a fabulous time chasing them, so we try not to worry too much. The only big inconvenience is that our ceiling light fixtures get filled up with fried little bug carcasses, but that's a small price to pay for cat entertainment.
Speaking of cat entertainment, we got our first wedding packages this week. Matt's cousin sent us some lovely dishes from Crate & Barrel. Of course, Lucy greatly enjoyed all the wrapping paper and bubble wrap. We are saving the packing supplies (waste not, want not) for some potential future shipping of some craft items Matt's family members are making. Lucy decided to have some fun dragging bubble wrap around the apartment, so I had to do some more tidying this morning.
In other news, Matt and I have begun to visit the gym again. We renewed our membership starting in November. We have to go 12 times a month, at a minimum, to get partially reimbursed by our health insurance. It's been good to be forced to be active. Tonight, we went to the lap swim. I haven't been properly swimming in ages, but I still managed to stay in the pool for almost 25 minutes slowly plodding my way along. It was wonderful to remember how good the frog stroke (aka breast stroke) feels. I hope we can make pool visits a regular part of our workout plan. Being active definitely helps calm my addled brain.
