Sunday Family Gathering

Sunday, August 25, 2013

Today was a nice day. My brother invited all of us (including my aunt/uncle and cousin and his family) to his house in NH (formerly my parents retirement home).
At first my mother didn't want to go as she has mixed feelings about what he's done to it. After several days of nudging her, she went.

The weather was beautiful. We sat around the lake and watched a few boats go by. Had a good meal and talked about the past and the future. My god-daughter who is going to be a junior in HS this year was talking about going to college in England. emoticon

None of us were too happy to hear of that (and I think her mother was upset by our reactions). She still has lots of time to decide but I can't imagine that there are a lot of schools that offer a program in biology and dance. Those are her interests.

I did great on food today. Indulged a bit, but stayed within range and got in my 10,ooo steps! Tomorrow is the last day of my second week of carb cycling. I don't think I'm going to see any weight loss but we will see.

    Curious how your Mom handled the house this time. Sounds like not too much of a fuss. Glad it was a nice day overall.

    Well who knows! Your god daughter still has some time to decide if that is what she really wants to do for college. I'm sure the idea sounds amazing to her right now but maybe later on down the line she'll lose interest in going so far away for college!

Glad you had a nice day with the family :)

    I would not want my Goddaughter to go so far away for college either. (A friends' daughter is now living in England. They are sad about it.) This is the time when she may well meet her future husband and that might mean living in England and being far away from family. Expensive, too, to and a long way to fly home from Europe for holidays and such. I hope she changes her mind. Hopefully she will find a college in the US that has just the program she wants.
Good for you staying in range and getting in your steps.
