Some good, steady treadmill miles at the gym. Our cold and snow combined with the New Year's Resolution crowd has just about made that place unbearable. Oh well.

Saw Jake and Andrea hot tubbing and gave Jake some wise counsel on dealing with minor injuries that I myself rarely follow. 

Tuna melt and creamed corn for dinner tonight. Mmmm!
