Had to head back to hubby's hometown area for a baby shower so we spent 2-1/2 hours on the road this morning and about 3 hrs on the road tonight to get back home. It was nice to see family since hubby's mom will be 96 next month and we don't get to see her near enough. The shower was for our nieces' new Grandson! Hard to get used to saying that! Makes me feel really old but she (our niece) is the eldest daughter of hubby's eldest brother.
I tried to eat healthy and had a half a apple pecan Chicken salad from Wendy's on the road up there (it came with blue cheese crumbles and I tried my hardest to pick those out of the salad before adding the dressing - I hate blue cheese!!) and a Berry Chicken Salad from Runza on the way back. I guess I got my share of chicken today because we had chicken salad on croissants for our lunch at the shower. I did eat a cupcake, a few pieces of Easter candy and homemade mints at the shower.
We ran into a really bad rain storm coming home and had to slow down to about 45 mph for quite a bit of the trip. We got home at 9:30 tonight and I did 10 minutes on my gazelle for my exercise today.
