Ok, I may not be great w/dreaming up nifty titles, but hey, I never claimed I was! Haha!
This is our last planned night on the road and I'm eager to get home. We're going to sleep in tomorrow - until about 6:30 a.m. I normally don't mind getting up early to (drive) get somewhere, but this will be our 4th day in a row, and I'm ready for a later getting up time. (sorry if I sound like I'm grumbling)
I'm thankful for SP and my SP friends and others who post on SP. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You're encouraging, enlightening, and I always feel better after I've been on SP.
As I mentioned last night, I had to take out all the rows of my newest knit top. I haven't done much on it since, but probably will in the car tomorrow. I did get about 8 rows done (over 193 stitches - I think that's what I have on the needle). I'm working the front and back in one piece, but w/a seam down the left side. Maybe I could just go ahead and work it in the round. Or maybe no. Haha

Had a good visit w/our grandchildren (the grown-up kids had too much to do!) It was fun and I'm glad we went. They live about 1,000 miles from us. The trip since then hasn't been so great, but I'm bearing up. God's grace IS sufficient.
On the trip as a whole, I've made some good choices (food and exercise) and some not-good choices. I'm afraid I've gained a few pounds, but we'll see when I do my usual weigh-in on Sunday morning.
I'm looking forward to being home where I can use my exercise equipment and eat better. Some of the motels where we've stayed have exercise rooms, and some don't. I confess I only walked outside one time when the motel didn't have an exercise room; and even tho' there's a nice one where we are tonight, I'm bushed. Yeah, yeah I know: exercise would probably be a best idea, but I'm going to bed soon instead.
I finished my 1st knit cotton top and bought some more cotton yarn. I started a second top, but the yarn isn't EXACTLY the same thickness as in the 1st top, and I had to take out what I'd done and start over. Ho-hum. Still, I'm eager to finish it and begin wearing the second top. I am still toying w/the idea of making it sleeveless instead of short sleeved. We'll see.

Although my eating wasn't perfect today, I DID make a number of good choices. And that's not easy for me to do when we're traveling. AND....I used the treadmill before breakfast and again after dinner, for a total of 70 minutes! Ok, I just sprained my arm patting myself on my back. Keep in mind that I don't walk FAST, but at least I did it.
I'm planning to repeat the exercise (maybe not the total minutes) tomorrow. And, I'm also planning to eat well tomorrow.
If the weather holds, we'll bring out grandkids to swim at the motel; and if not, we'll enjoy the day indoors with them.
Have a great night.

Ok, so I took liberties with the song. Yes, we're on the road again today. Going to visit our dau who DOESN'T live near us. She has a beautiful son who will be 4 on Wed, and our only granddau who is 7. sigh. Wish they lived closer!
We had a false start (or maybe, non-start) this morning. Due to a mis-remembering, we didn't get Darby to the pet resort yesterday, and had to call to get special permission to bring her in on today's holiday! Sooo, instead of getting away before 9:30 this a.m. (a late start any day), we didn't leave until 12:30!! We did reach our evening's lodging at 8 p.m., after stopping up the road for dinner. Had almost perfect weather, and glancing over at the north-bound lanes of the interstate hiway, we were thrilled that we were headed south! Twice N-bound traffic was at a standstill for miles - the second time was for at least 10 miles - I watched the odometer.
I'm about ready to turn in for the night. We'll reach my dau's before dinnertime tomorrow (Lord-willing) and look forward to being able to attend E's b'day party.
Y'all have a great week.
P.S. I tracked my nutrition tonight, and didn't go very much over calories, and managed to pretty-much stay w/in range on the other categories. Whew! Plan to do better tomorrow. Also, hoping tomorrow night's lodging has a treadmill!!

My DH DID hit the DC traffic that I knew he would. It took him 1-1/2 hrs to go from Dullas airport to the Maryland line! We didn't get rain at our house until after 10 p.m., but DH said it was raining down where he was. At least he got home safely.....around 9:30 p.m.
I had a fat-free yogurt when I got up this morning and then climbed on the treadmill. Granted I still can't go fast, but I spent 45 minutes, reading more pages of a book about the beginning of the FBI. It's amazing that it even got off the ground, considering how many blunders they made in the beginning year or so.
We're thankful we don't have any running around plans for today or tomorrow. There's plenty to do here at home. It IS strange that we won't be going to school any more until the fall.
Have a sparking-fun day everyone.
