Went for a walk with my DD10 and pushed DD3 in the stroller. Got 1.2 miles done - mid 70's weather and sunny!

I figured the time outside in the sun would help my election anxiety. 

But now I have to bathe the dogs...I'd been putting it off, but while we were out Tracker the hound peed on Sandy the Golden Wolf-a-dog-a-doodle's head. Not sure if I'm more annoyed with his aim, or her not getting out of the way. (this is NOT the first time this has happened, either). 

I prefer to wash them outside in the hose, but it's just windy enough and cool enough in the shade that I'll do it in the shower instead. Blergh.

Sympathy. Had the same problem with my two Monday morning, but thankfully it was only a couple of drops of wee and some waterless shampoo took care of it.

With yours does it happen when they both discover an amazing sniffing spot, then on is still sniffing while the other "marks" it?

Yes! I try to pay attention and be quick with the leash to pull her back, but my mind is frequently off in La La Land.

1.1 m dog walk. Beautiful crisp fall day today, no wind no wet; so that made the going easier.

My neighborhood is one long loop, on a forested hill with houses spaced rather far apart. Often I don't pass a single soul when I do the loop. Today I saw MANY more folks, all of them women; and ALL of our dogs were unusually hyped and restive and setting off the OTHER dogs out in their respective electrically-fended in yards. Everyone's feeling the tension, even the dogs.

I already posted my mile outdoor walk, but because my apple watch is mean and only counted 4 minutes of that walk as "exercise" minutes, I also did a 1 mile Leslie Sansone Walk at Home video (one with Kamilah, my favorite). And then a yoga video focused on abwork, and then, because I was STILL 2 minutes short of my "exercise" goal I did 5 more minutes of a walk at home video. Hit all my rings though!

Left the house to talk after taking the pie out of the oven. It was dusk and I got home before dark. DD12 was playing outdoors with a neighbor (masked, distanced) so I let her stay home.

I saw some neighbors walking and they said, "Hi everyone!" and then looked around and asked, "You're alone?" Yes, it is that rare to walk by myself. I love walking with my kids. It just wasn't possible tonight. Glad I got out anyways.

I accidentally walked 2.09 miles today lol. I planned to walk my usual 1 mile loop around the neighborhood but there's a pedestrian walkway that I've been meaning to follow and see where it leads. Today I took that turn onto the walkway instead of following my usual route. I kept walking and walking through the next two subdivisions and finally stopped at just over 1 mile. Then of course I had to walk back, which gave me just over 2 miles. I don't know if it's normally a busy walking area but today I passed a lot of people. People walking their dogs, people pushing strollers, kids and adults on bicycles, and people just walking like me. I could blame it on a build up of tension but more likely it's just that we're finally getting cool enough temperatures to be outdoors.

We did our zoo trip today (and added in a stop by the beach while we were in Jacksonville). We left our house at 6:15am and got back at 10:15pm. Fun day but exhausting!

Anyway, I didn't intentionally track, but both DH and I have Google Fit enabled on our phones, so that does some automatic tracking on the background. My phone says just over 3.5 miles. His says just over 5 miles. We walked basically the same amount, so I'm not sure how it got such different totals, lol. Then when we got home I did some brief arm work. I totally phoned it in, but I did it.
