Charlie Thinks 2.9.12
I’ve been training for the Sweetheart 5k, and I have to tell you, it’s been tough. First, I’m not really sure what a ‘k’ is, but I’m hoping it’s not very far. My legs are a lot shorter than humans legs and I should be able to get some sort of head start since I’m clearly at a disadvantage.
It’s been so nice and mild here this winter and I’m hoping it stays that way. It’s been great to go outside and sun in my window. I guess that means next year the winter will be bad, or at least that’s what people say. I’m already ready for spring and being able to go swim in the outdoor pool at the community center and see everyone out riding their mountain bikes, enjoying everything here.
I’ve been trying to go to some of the high school basketball games lately. The boys and girls teams are doing good this year and the boys so far are undefeated in our league! I take my giant foam finger so people don’t step on me, but the crowds sure do get rowdy and loud when the teams do so good, so I mainly use the foam finger as a shield!
I’ve been keeping up with my yoga and pilates classes, and man are they fun! I don’t even realize I’m getting in shape, although I find that when I leave all I want to do is take a nap I’m so relaxed. Everyone should try this stuff and Monument Yoga is right on the circle and the instructors are so nice! I’ve been hitting the girl scout cookies really hard the last week, so the classes at this point are essential to me not looking like a giant black and white butterball kitty!
It’s hard to believe it’s already February, and the chamber banquet is coming up, along with the Sweetheart 5k and expo, and spring and summer are bustling here in town with so many events, activities and fun things to do to get out and enjoy the town.
Don’t forget if you aren’t already to register to vote! The election is in the beginning of April for Mayor and City Council members, so brush up on your candidates, and I’ll make sure we ask them some important questions and get it in the paper so we all know where they stand.
Get out there and vote! Every one counts! See you next week, Fruita!
