Lisa, Rebecca and Heather said they would also try for the same this week, and I am just curious how everyone is doing.
Monday - 30 minute walk
Tuesday - big fat goose-egg (i.e. NOTHING)
Wednesday - at least 1 hour walking
I don't know what my problem is with Tuesdays. I think that is the same day that I wimped out last week. I need to really pick it up for the rest of the week if I hope to reach my goals that I have set forth for the next wi which are:
40 lbs gone (1 lb to go)
out of the 150's (1.6 lbs to go)
Yesterday after swimming lessons, I took the kids into Toronto to go the the dentist and then off to the Royal Ontario Museum. We still go the the dentist in the city because he is the one I used to work for before I had kids - so I trust him and he gives me a discount! Plus I get to catch up with all my old co-workers.
My daughter has been wanting to go to a 'dinosaur museum' for a long time now. I checked it out and the prices are SO expensive, but the ROM listed that you can go for free on Wednesdays after 4:30. So that's what I planned, only to find out that it is not free this week since it is March break, its half price. So here is a breakdown of my costs for my 'free' day:
-$14.50 for parking (and thats with the museum discount)
-$25.00 at the museum gift shop (kidlets NEED a souvenir - lol)
-$9.00 for a transit pass to and from the dentist
-$16.00 for dinner (they had McD's, I had Subway)
GRAND TOTAL - $90.50 and that's not including gas!!!
Man, its expensive to do anything fun with the kids - I hate that. And truly, they were bored with the museum quite quickly! I think we will stick to the zoo this summer - annual family pass is $140 and they have a water play area to cool off in.
