Help Wanted:Lumber Jack

Today I was supposed to go to the gym for weights but couldn't seem to get my butt in gear. After a quick errand I came home to find the nicest Auntie awake and willing to stay awake for another half hour so I could get out. And out I did, it felt great to be outside. I jumped in my new running pants and strapped on my heart monitor so I could have a better idea about how I was doing. I got in a quick 25 minute run and decided to keep going with that roll and filled our wood rack.
I have been freezing for ......I don't know, a month. My electric bill must be skyrocketing as I stand under the hot water to warm my bones. Damn it I am building a fire! I even stopped at a road side stand and bought some kindling. We have miles of wood but no way to get it lit. When I left I could have left a window open but didn't. I will hopefully be sleeping in my underwear tonight instead of a turtleneck and flannel pants. Sexy thought right?
Now it has been a few hours and I am seated at work and guess what? My back hurts. Not in a bad way but in a -I am a Gladiator- sort of way. I think I am going to just start training to be a Lumberjack when I grow up.
P.S. Burned 500 calories in 40 minutes according to my Heart Monitor! Love that thing.
