I think this counts as exercise, don't you?

This morning I vacuumed the house, including going around and getting the crud out of the edges/baseboards, as well as moving all the chairs, couches, etc. The children were amazingly cooperative - Jonathan and Thomas played together happily in my bedroom (thank you, Legos!) and Josiah followed me around and "helped". It was great! Out of curiosity I calculated my heart rate while leaning, sweaty and panting on the vacuum cleaner...it was 168. I think that counts as double duty - housework AND exercise!

You're more than welcome to come exercise at my house! (And please bring your helper and the two Lego guys!) :-)

Definitely it counts! I was thinking last night that I never exercise...then I mentally corrected myself b/c I know that all the running around this house has to count for something :)
