Arrived in FL!

Friday, March 08, 2013

DH and Sugar Dog and I arrived in FL this morning. We are set up in our motorhome and
DH and Sugar Dog are now taking a nap. We will be meeting DS and BIL around 6ish at Cracker Barrel - it isn't our usual hangout when we come see them, but we have some gift cards - yes plural - so that is an easy choice and I can easily find fairly good things on the menu. Then DS and BIL will come back to the campground and we will have a nice time chatting outside for an hour or so.

Tomorrow morning will be my first 5K! At the age of 54, I am going to be doing my first 5K! DS asked me about doing so when it became apparent that it was scheduled for the weekend that we were here! Yay! I can hardly believe this former couch potato is doing that. I will be walking it, but that is okay as well. DS and BIL are choosing to do the same. Then we will all - DH included - be going to the after party with drinks and food, so that will be fun. I am making wonderful choices more than 80% of the time, so I am going to be fine there. If I lived in the south, all the fried, fried, fried might be a problem, but I don't so it won't. LOL!

Sunday morning will be a champagne brunch with a bunch of their friends - this is the third year that they have included us - and it is just a fun time out overlooking the water. Then Monday is Girl's Day - Sister Day - and Sheila and I will probably go find a nice salad for lunch and sit in the hot tub later and talk about our lives in our 50s. I am sure we will be discussing our brother's cardio issues, our mother's finances [or lack thereof], our youngest sister's family and upcoming weddings, and DD's problems. We will solve ALL of them of course. emoticon

We are in a campground that is very easy to walk as I do it, so I will be soaking up that time, with the somewhat sandy soil beneath my feet. Then Tuesday morning, DH and I will head for home until the next time we come to FL for a few days.

I too will be looking out for your results it is such a fabulous feeling with everyone around you applauding and shouting. It is such good fun. I always like to stay to the end because they also need applause. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Just wish it was the same as those who arrive first. They are rushing for the food and drink. Too bad it could not be opened later. This year i will be sure to suggest people should go back to greet those who made such a big effort. I love watching the end of the line. They are so happy HUGS ENJOY!!!!! Have fabulous time HUGS Pat in Maine.
SNOW is forecast for tomorrow. HUGS

    DH and I are flying to Tampa for a getaway n Siesta Key- only 5 days but I am hoping to drag him out for 2 or 3 2-3 mile walks every day.
I'm going with or without him.
The forecast looks perfect!
