The guinea pig saga continues.
I told Eden on Monday that if she wanted the rodent she would have to make the money to get all set up. We figured it would be about $60 for everything. I thought I was safe for awhile. That is a lot of money for a 10 year old especially one that money burns a hole in her pocket. I figured she would blow a bit here and there on candy necklaces, Littlest Pet Shops, gum and such.
Little did I know that this little girl would earn all the money in three days! She sold kool-aide, Popsicles, and ice cream to the neighbors and earned all the money. It did help that her sweet sister Evie (7) gave her $20 for three Otter Pops. She tried to charge me for 2 otter pops for Ella (2) and Gracie (2). I told her forget it since I paid for all the merchandise to begin with that she was selling off. Last night we went looking for the guinea pig. Today we will go buy all the paraphernalia that goes with it and probably get the rodent this weekend. She is so excited and trying to think up a good name. Any suggestions?
When her dad called from camp last night I told him what had transpired this week and he just laughed and said he was game. Good thing because I think we are committed. ;o)
Lost 1.5 lbs.
Walked 14.5 miles
Really watched what I ate this week. Wendi and I have been walking farther this week...and a little faster.
Running the .2 miles at the end is no big deal anymore. I am hardly out of breath so I think I need to step it up a notch. It feels great!
