Lara on a diet: Part III- does cleaning count as exercise?

Yesterday, in the cold as a witch’s tit weather, I decided to throw out whatever I could get my hands on — and it amounted to about 3 huge 5 gallon bags of clothes (don’t worry I donated), paper cups and 10 year old lunch boxes.  And THEN, miracle of miracles, I finally (6 months later) re-covered my ripped dining room chairs.  And, add to that, I found out you can actually use a power drill as a phillips head screw driver.  I am now thinking I am a fucking …
