Just like almost everybody else's New Years resolution, one of mine is to lose weight (and clean out the house). The only difference is that I made that resolution back in early November. So, today I walked from Trader Joe's to Target across the parking lot (and didn't get run over) and back again instead of driving and circling while looking for a parking space (which means I also left a slightly smaller carbon footprint). On the way back, I came across a dead rat near Trader Joe's - flat. Does is still count as roadkill if the dead animal is in an urban parking lot and not by the side of a country road?
Just as well I didn't have my camera with me - I think I would have lost my faithful readers - both of them :-) - if I had posted a picture. Really, I know better!
BTW, I'm working on another giveaway for Jan. 17, the one-year anniversary of this blog. I won't call it giveaway because I found out when I had the other one that you can type "giveaway" or "blog giveaway" into your search engine and enter your name everywhere. Not quite what I had in mind.
