I'm off to the Swiss Alps for a 4-day retreat tomorrow. It will be a 7-hour train ride. I look forward to it - time to relax, read, listen to music and some sermon tapes, enjoy the scenery. Good fellowship, times of worship, food and fun await me at the top of the mountain!

When I get back, it will be time to start the 5% challenge - my goal is to lose 7.5 pounds. I can do that. Glad to be back with the Firecracker team this time around - some familiar faces among the members and lots of enthusiastic new ones, too!

    I hope you have a great trip, and good luck with both challenges! I am a little in awe of people who can manage more than one challenge--I have not been able to do that. I have a hard enough time finding time for the BLC! LOL.

    I would LOVE to have a few days in the Swiss Alps about now!! I am going to a conference in Spain next month, during the 5% Challenge. THAT WILL BE A CHALLENGE as all the food is included in the price of the hotel room!!! I will need to lose about 13 pounds during that challenge.

    Sounds emoticon ! I love train rides; you're sort of trapped into relaxation. Have a soulful, rejuvenating time and we'll be here to emoticon you when you return.
