I am writing this entry on my Palm m515. Earl and I went to Syracuse today to do some shopping and to meet my mom and sister for lunch, in celebration of my mom’s birthday yesterday. Anyways, we had a lovely lunch, and while we were out there, we decided to spend some Christmas gift certificates. We went to Shoppingtown Mall, where we each had a $25 gift certificate from my mom and her boyfriend. One of the stores there is a Media Play. What do you know, they had the Palm Portable Keyboard there for 1/2 price… marked down from $99.99 to $49.98. I was quite pleased, to say the least. So I used my gift certificate to offset the price of the keyboard even more, and here I am with one of these nifty keyboards now. I’m hoping by purchasing this keyboard I am going to be more inclined to write in my blog while we’re traveling about. I may even use it to write downstairs while watching television, rather than sitting up here in the computer room away from Earl. One of my New Year’s resolutions is to be write in my blogs more. Hopefully, you’ll see the results.

Our lunch together was at Applebee’s, and was quite enjoyable. We took our time and just laughed and laughed and laughed. And I ate pretty healthy as well, which is always a good thing.

Afterwards we all went over to Bed, Bath and Beyond and to Target. Earl and I picked up some new exercise stuff at Target. Like most of middle America, we are looking forward to getting back to our exercise routine with the coming of the New Year. One of my co-workers has been raving about these “push up bars”, so we are going to give them a whirl. I initially hope to do one hour of exercising a day, 7 days a week. I want to work up to 2 hours (one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening), but we’ll have to see if I stick to the first goal before looking to expand upon that.
