I didn't watch any tv yesterday but a lot of outdoor activities are not really possible with the cold weather we've been having

What good ideas for sneaking some exercise in but not realizing it is actually exercise! Saturdays is usually when I work on cleaning the house.

I'd love to do any one of those things, but it's been below zero winf chill for the past month here. We have been trying to get creative indoors, but after awhile, even that can get a little difficult

The tv is on here most of the time, but we also go outside often

We try to do this a lot. Right now though, we are doing anything that avoids going outside. The air quality has been horrible!

We don't always watch TV. But it much too cold to go outside and do anything. School was closed due to the temperature.
