Made it to Florida

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Flights were late but since my DH is a million mile guy on United we got upgraded to first class so that was nice. And I lucked out for my meal and had a salad with chicken. I wanted to eat the salad dressing but not going to take a chance of it having gluten so passed. I added some of the warm nuts they give you and it was fine. I also would have loved to eat the cream of asparagus soup but was afraid it might have flour as a thickener so passed on that. At the Houston airport we lucked out and I was able to buy a couple of hard boiled eggs and had brought with me a piece of gluten free bread and so that worked.
I woke up hungry this morning so will be looking forward to eating something. Today will be a challenge since we have to eat out but at 4pm we can get into the house my DH rented for us. It's a 6 bedroom with pool and everything so I will go shopping to get the foods I can eat and like I mentioned before will pack lunches and such.
Anyway, a bit sleepy as I never sleep right the first night in a hotel...but not too bad. Excited about seeing the grandchildren.
I do hope all of you are doing well.
Have a terrific day.

    That is fantastic you made it there!! Wonderful vigilance on your food as you must be. What an awesome place to be staying at, a house with a pool and six rooms, could have invited a bunch of friends to stay with you!
Have fun! Hope the weather stays good for your stay!

    Sallie... what a blessed life you live. I know that you know this and praise HIM for it. How wonderful to get to see your grkids. Nothing like gr children to put smiles on our faces. It must be hard ..foodwise..but thankful you were able to get through it. Have a fun time stocking up those shelves with foods that you can eat. emoticon
