We got a much later start to our vacation than we had planned. Our friends granddaughter was in a horrific motorcycle accident the day before we left. All last week while we were at Lake of the Ozarks we thought we would be heading back home as she required several long operations---but there was nothing any of us could do for her; they talked with her every day. We arrived in Branson on Sunday and thought we would only be here for a few days as she was due to go home and our friends thought they would be needed back home to help her during the day while the rest of the family worked. Today she went home and our friends were told to stay on vacation as she can get around pretty well on her own. So we will be heading home this Sunday. Have been walking and shopping, but haven't got as much exercise as when I am at home( guess every bit helps) I have been watching what I eat and only had one day of oh-oh to much food for a day. I'm hoping to keep the pounds I lost off, but with not as much exercisemwill have to see what happens.

This week is going so quickly, here comes the weekend. I have had some good exercise workouts this week and really do enjoy going to the Y for line dancing on Wednesday and Zumba on Friday; added to the mix of walking water aerobics and strength exercies. The time flys by during the group dance exercise and have a great time; before you know it your getting sweaty and pooped.
On the home front I'm still working getting the heavy cleaning done, slow but surely. I have a few more things I want to accomplish before we leave for vacation on June third for two weeks---looking forward to a change of pace. We should get home right about or on Fathers Day. Will have about10 days to get the house ready fo DD and family to come home for a visit. Hopefully, DGD will stay with us for a bit , then on the road to get her back to Kansas---so going to be a busy couple of months along with fitting in some doctor appointments in there too.

Yesterday was an eleven hour wait at the hospital for my DH's angiogram and angioplasty. WE were so releaved when they were able to clear the two blockages going to his heart and didn't need by-pass surgery. This past weekend was real trying for him as he was having the episodes just sitting doing nothing. I did manage to get some walking in the corridors of the hospital. He is thrilled that he is allowed to golf this Friday.
Today I went to the Y and did both some strength exercises and water aerobics, so much nicer than sitting at a hospital. We went to a mini family reunion this evening with some of his cousins and his sister and hubby. Yes we both had healthy meals of broiled fish and steamed veggies.
Tomorrow is the first day of line dancing at the Y we go to and I'm planning on going to that, then some water aerobics again, as long as hubby keeps feeling fine.

Where has this week gone, can't believe its Friday already, although we have had a go, go week. I got to the Y three times and have gotten strength exercises in twice, walking, aerobics twice and Zumba this morning long with the second water aerobics in. When we were done at the Y my friend and I went out for lunch ar Panera and visited some; followed bu a little shopping so more walking. We actually made it home before our hubbys, as they went golfing today. Now we are going to meet this same couple to go out to dinner, as they have another committment for tomorrow night. Hope all my fellow sparkers have a great weekend.
