Lights & Exercise
Happy Leap Day!
My 3 yr old woke me up about 3:30 to make sure I wouldn't miss it. He's been in the habit of waking up and crawling into our bed for awhile. Not so fun to have a knee jabbing me in the back. May have to bribe him as we did with the 6 yr old. Stay in your bed for 7 days in a row and you can buy a toy.
I am amazed by the number of lights we have in our 2200 sq ft house. It seems that the kids have a very easy time flipping the lights on, but when it comes to turning them off, they forget where the light switch is. I run through the house frantically everyday turning the lights off before we leave for school. And everyday, it seems I find at least a few left on; upstairs bathroom, girl's bedroom, and sometimes 3 or 4 different light switches in the basement. I reaaly need to throw my pedometer back on to see how many more steps I take in our new house. In our old house, I didn't so much care as I came back home right away to eat breakfast, but in our new house, I don't get back home till after noon. Trying to save a little energy cost whereever I can.
Have a great February 29!
