Wow. I had a very busy June and July. Finished up my last year teaching at one school and had to pack up to get moved out and ready for another school and grade level. Then I went up to Reno, Nevada to help my husband with judging a commerical brewing contest (tough work, I know.) The day I got back I flew to New Orleans with a group of teachers who are all invovled in the Teaching American History Grant. We work and write curriculum during the year and then go to do field study in the Summer. Fun but busy and hot!
Two days after coming home from that I was off again with my husband and close friends for two weeks in Ireland! That was truely a dream of a lifetime vacation. I am home for these next two weeks before I head off to Denver for another field study with the history grant.
During this time at home I will be helping my husband with coordinating State Fair Activities for commerical and homebrewers. One being a big Brewfest of all the awards winners from the State Fair competitions. I also will have to travel up to Arcata, Ca to help my son get settled into his new apartment for the upcoming school year at HSU.
Whew! This is my busiest summer ever. For someone who doesn't travel much this has been quite an interesting couple of months. I am pleased with all this traveling that I have still been able to follow my the program for the most part. ( I guess lifestyle changes in eating instead of being on a diet help.) Weight maintained pretty much, and I am hoping to continue on the downward path. LIttle behind in meeting my goal date, but I am still down over 10lbs. So I look at where I have come from, and I am feeling good! Did two hot yoga classes this week and hope to squeeze in a few more before taking off again. Fortunately all my travels require a lot of walking and physical movement so that helps!
