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!
