I started taking a new multivitamin this morning. Do you take vitamins? Other supplements? I realize I've taken multivitamins for years, mainly out of habit. It all started with those nasty tasting Flintstone's Chewables we had as kids. Remember those?
I guess it was a good marketing ploy - kids' vitamins in the shape of favorite cartoon characters. I personally preferred Dino, even though they all tasted equally horrible.
So anyway, I bought a different kind this week when I found that my previous vitamins were no longer sold, and this prompted me to do about 30 seconds of research. Now I'm wondering if it's even worth the bother. Do multivitamins really do anything? I took one of my new "Women's Food Based Multi" this morning, and don't feel a darn bit different.
It was another nice week anyhow, and I got caught up on a lot of things. Bike month wrapped up at the university. I didn't make it to the grand finale festivities, but I got an email that said I won a gift card for a local pizza place. Yay, free fuel!
Yesterday, Meego was at a, sort of, mini band camp for current 8th graders to see what high school marching band is like. He didn't have a direct protege', apparently there aren't any current 8th grade bass players interested in high school marching band. What is middle school coming to??
And yesterday was a nice day for a band event or anything outdoors. How nice to have that happen on a weekend. So speaking of nature, Magnum and I went out and enjoyed some hiking.
... and sitting.
We hit some nearby trails, and there were a few others out enjoying the day. There was a group of three young girls accompanied by an adult male I hope was a guardian of some sort. The girls were probably about 10 years old, breaking out the selfie stick while standing on the edges of these cliffs.
In movie news, we watched Focus which I'd never heard of. Pretty implausible really, but entertaining nonetheless.
Now, I think I need to go play outside before Mother Nature sees what's going on.
