“Sudoku?” Or . . . “My Husband is a Smart Alec”

IMG_9375_edited-1Lately I’ve been pitying myself (again) over my ongoing foot problems. Plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis always hovering in the background – just waiting for me to turn my head long enough for them to pounce on my right foot; some type of stabbing, nail-like metatarsalgia pain experimenting with my left foot.

“I just keep wanting so much to train for a marathon again,” I said to Mike last night. “But maybe I just need to . . . get over it.”

“We just need to find something else for you,” Mike comforted.

I was skeptical. Last time we had this conversation he suggested motocross.

“I don’t know,” I shrugged. “I’m not really excited about biking. I mean, I wouldn’t mind it. It just doesn’t excite me.”

“I’ve got it!” Mike said. “Hot yoga.”

“I’m not really . . .”

“No. I mean like REALLY hot. Like people would be passing out.”

I laughed, sighed, and shook my head sadly, but Mike wasn’t done helping.

“Sudoku?” he tried. “You could do super hard ones.”

He maybe had something with that last one. I wonder how many calories an intense hour of Sudoku would burn anyway . . . especially if they were “super hard ones”.

That is one good looking couple right there! And hey there's nothing wrong with a little sudoku, I just might like it a bit. But I do see where you would have concern about how many calories it would burn. . .

Please put that picture of you and Mike on our next year's calendar. I love it! Do you also have it in color? I'd love a copy.
