I also realised that Bob was right - morning is best for exercise. My planned walk never materialized last night because I had to paint the garage. Well, not really, but family related stuff crept in there and before I knew it, it was 9pm.
The morning, before the son rises, is the time I have the most control over. I could bring him along as I have one of those fancy pants jogger/bike trailer strollers but the time after his breakfast and before I have to leave for work is too short. I'll save that for the weekends.
I've decided that everything within a 2km radius of my house will be designated "no car allowed". That includes the library and the nearest strip mall that includes Blockbuster, the drug store and a grocery store. Since I make a trip to each place on the order of once a week, that should get some more walking/biking in.
I'm usually a sucker for new "reality" shows and King of Cars is no different. The main character is the owner of a big Dodge dealership in Las Vegas. He's transformed himself into a white rapper type and calls himself "Chop" as in "I CHOP the prices!". It's reasonably funny although I don't think I would ever actually buy a car from a guy like that.
What I find interesting is that most of the deals take hours to finalize. They show people coming to the dealership in the morning and not leaving until it gets dark. Do most car deals really take that long? I would have walked out way before all these people did.
Oh yeah - the other one I'm hooked on is "The Ultimate Fighter". I guess it's because each show ends with what you really want to see on all the other reality shows - two contestants beat the crap out of each other.
