5:00am Woke up, have breakfast and packed bags.
7:30am Depart from house to attend family reunion at Griggsville, Illinois. It is about five hours drive.
9:30am Stop by McDonald's to use restroom because daughter wants Egg Mcmuffin and hubby wanted breakfast burritos. I did not order anything but they gave us an extra egg Mcmuffin. I ate half of it.
12:00pm Arrive at Griggsville, IL Park where the family reunion was held. My hubby's family is big. My father-in-law has 9 brothers and 3 sisters and my mother-in-law has 3 brothers and 2 sisters. Naturally, not everyone can make it but still it was a big turn out! I did not overeat and I am proud of that.
4:00pm Left Griggsville, IL for Glen Carbon, IL.
6:23pm Arrive at Hampton Inn & Suites, Glen Carbon, IL. Yahoo maps was incorrect, we were lost, driving around for about 30 minutes. Hubby and daughter went to the swimming pool. I went on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Pick up Wendy's for dinner. I had Grilled Chicken Go Wrap. We caught the very end of Olympics Closing in the hotel room.

Woke up to another beautiful day! High temp 77°F. Kind of taking it easy in the morning. Spent more than half a day looking up hotels for our upcoming trip. Will let everyone know details later.
We got our groceries done. Had to go to Woodman's and Hilander today. Got my 30 minute walk in. Having dinner now. I will be busy again after dinner preparing a dish for my hubby's family annual reunion potluck tomorrow. It is about five hours drive one way. More details later.
Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!

Today's high temperature 75°F. The sun is out and there was a nice breeze. So beautiful! We had rain the past two days. That is why we are having cooler temps. Wish it is like that everyday.
Went for my nail appointment at 10:30am. Done before noon. My daughter said, "Mom, it's such a beautiful day, do you want to go for a walk?" She likes to ride her bicycle whilst I walk. I had my 30 minute walk.
Took her to Peak Sports Club for her Tae Kwon Do class. I went on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Made a new friend at Peak today. Her name is Susan and she is from Hong Kong. I went to the game room looking for my daughter and she was playing ping pong (table tennis) with her. Naturally, we were conversing in Cantonese (my Chinese dialect.)
Had to go clean up the kitchen and get a shower. I am so tired again. Probably, my thyroid hormone is the culprit now. I think I am going to sleep good tonight because I did not last night.

A man and his wife were sitting in the living room and he said to her, "Just so you know, I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."
His wife got up, unplugged the TV and threw out all of his beer.

The time we had to leave to go to the doctor's office is when it started raining. Went to the doctor's office at 2:45pm. Based on the symptoms I had last Sunday and the doctor did not see anything wrong with the EKG, she said it is panic attack or anxiety attack. The stress/anxiety is related to my peri-menopause issue. This is not new to me as I was diagnosed with this since Jan 12, 2011. It has been under control for awhile and now I have an episode. I need to go for a stress test and blood test. The good news is I am back on exercise.
After the doctor's, we proceed to the CVS Pharmacy for my meds. There was an error on the dosage and quantity on the prescription. One of the ladies working in the pharmacy changed the dosage and quantity which is unacceptable. I had to go home and call the doctor's office to try to square things away but the nurse was unable!
I could not wait for the phone call at home because I had to send my daughter for her Tae Kwon Do class at Peak Sports Club. So, my hubby went back to the doctor's office to get prescription corrected. Whilst at Peak, I got on the treadmill for 30 minutes. We are definitely changing pharmacy because over the past three years they have been messing up a lot with my hubby's meds too. Also, you tell them DO NOT CALL US - they still call us to bug us for refills (automated & live person.) The dissatisfaction list is so long, I think I better stop here.
Once I got home from Peak, we had to run back to the pharmacy again but it was not ready for collection. It was already 7:00pm. We had to wait for it to be filled! Needless to say, dinner was late today. It is still raining here. Well, I should not complain but it is just so inconvenient when you have to go in and out....
Oh, before I forget, I did go for a slow 30 minute walk this morning.
