Day 117 - 120: On the Road

Friday, May 03, 2013

Tuesday and Wednesday went to getting ready for my road trip to the West Coast. I've done this trip before and I'm packing less and enjoying it more.

Thursday, I woke up to find that my plan route out of town was smothered in a freak Spring snow storm. My navigator, Dave (dad), hoped on the computer and rerouted us just enough West to miss the mess. Landed in Omaha, NE safely last night.

Friday (today) we traveled safely and made it in to Brush, Colorado. This afternoon I actually had enough pep to do 4 miles with a Leslie Sansone DVD. As I'm the only driver.. this is pretty amazing. I think what made today better than the first day is that I made it a point to get more liquids in while on the road.

    My family and I are planning a major road trip next summer. Any suggestions on eating healthy on the road?

    I bet that DVD was nice after all that driving. I'm a teacher so I don't sit still do well.

Happy Travels!

Day 111

A week from Thursday, Dave (dad) and I hit the road for the West Coast. Niece and grand nephew will mind the house and cats. Currently Dave and I are working through either a mild cold or Spring allergies. Hard to tell which it is. Doing lots of naps and fluids.

Day 108 and 109

Saturday, April 20, 2013

Kicked off the day with a lovely soaky bath. Sister showed up mid morning and we nipped out to Ikea. This is Saturday and the place was a mob scene. Retail may be having a hard time right now but, Ikea is doing something very right. Found the bedframe sister wanted, purchased it, loaded it up and headed for home. Doesn't sound like much but, by the time we were done I was ready for a nap. Hit the couch with a book and a blanket and that was all they wrote. Naptime and enjoyed every minute of it.

    Nice to get a nap in. I ran a few errands today, busy everywhere I went. I to needed a nap when I got home so I could go out for dinner with friends.
