The Vacuum and the Smartwatch

so I got a new vacuum cleaner, a “handy dandy convertible portable I will clean you toilet for you”  vacuum cleaner. There are fifteen stairs going up from where I am right now in the great-room to the upstairs. On the left hand side of the staircase there is a rail for the chair-lift. Someone asked me if I was going to leave it there, heck YES I said, I might need it! Sometimes I use it because I have been on my feet so long that I am just plain tired (another word for lazy) so the reason I was telling you about the stairs is that I took my new (all the above description) and cleaned those stairs. Now I worked my tail off, seriously and then I went to my bedroom and was using it in there, cleaning baseboards, vacuuming dog hair etc. (remember I said I was working hard?) so I look at my smart watch (not feeling it is so smart right this minute) and it said I had only exercised for THREE minutes WHAT?????? Working, pushing, carrying that machine up the stairs (I could have opted to take it on the elevator but chose NOT to do that so I could rack up some brownie points on my SMARTWATCH) and worked for over an hour! I wanted to take it off and throw it against the wall, it did tell me that I had burned a measly 171 calories!

I think I will rest and see if that new machine can work on its on! Maybe I should tie my watch on the handle!

    I feel ya. My wife uses those kinds of gadgets. I think they frustrate her too.

    I bet those stairs look good now. Enjoy it while it lasts,
