Just returned from nine day road trip with son's family which includes a very stubborn, yet overwhelmingly adorable, 15 month old daughter and an often times nearly impossible almost 4 year old daughter. Then we combined a total of 9 hikes, an evening of western dinner theater, a morning of babysitting so the parents could compete in a trail run and a 12 hour babysitting stint before leaving on the trek so parents could do a climb/hike here. Combine all that with this grandma doing the best I can with all this heat and activity and various stressors while also fighting a bit of exacerbation of multiple sclerosis and I'm about to drop. I tried to eat pretty well on the trip, but then found that today and yesterday I've really messed up. Our sweet daughter left in our fridge a home made lasagna, salad,garlic bread and brownies made from scratch by her two boys and decorated by 2 year old daughter. I couldn't resist. Wonderful comfort food, but now it is back to the healthy stuff which I've actually grown to love. I've got to lose the nearly two pounds that appeared this morning. Ouch! Then back to the slow and steady route once again. I know I can do it. Love those grandkids, but gotta plan for some me time on our next journey. LOL!!!
