My Red Room statistics hit 70,000 a day ago, and I was ecstatic. Normally, I would have blogged about it, thanking everyone who contributed to this, but decided against it this time. I must admit that seeing the quarter million hits of Christopher Meeks humbled me. By the way, Christopher, well done!
Well, I was thrilled until I managed to misplace (read: lost) my pedometer yesterday evening. This pedometer geek freaks out whenever the pedometer goes missing. Even though I am still taking steps, they don't count. Well, they do, but they don't as there is no way to track them.
As soon as I realized that it was not in my pocket, I went looking. I serached in the car; I looked all over the house, and I even looked in the parking lot where I recalled I had pulled it out to check the time (my pedometer not only records steps, aerobic steps, calories burned, and mileage, but also has a digital clock that functions as a watch.) so I knew I had it up until 3:30PM yesterday. I could not locate it, and figured I would look today when it was daylight once again.
This morning I managed to find an older pedometer that isn't as reliable and also needed a new battery. I found a battery, replaced the other one, and got ready to leave. It stopped counting steps at 183 steps. After that, I knew I would need to purchase another new battery (I knew that the one I replaced it with was marginal at best) if I was to continue to use this one.
When I returned home, there on the sidewalk hiding amongst the leaves was my pedometer. Apparently, it had fallen out of my pocket and onto the leaves, thus no noise that alerted me to the fact that it was gone. So this pedometer geek is ecstatic once again as my Red Room numbers climb and my steps count.
