Chptr 12, Day 10
Very early rise. I've been clock watching since 2a and finally decided at 3:45a that was it. I walked late last evening, and my hip/back was pestering me through the night just enough to prevent restful sleep. I feel fine right now.
The mi... Read more

Thought I'd be doing the happy dance for having skipped the ice cream snack last night. I can't, 'cause I'm feeling numb after a wee 3 hrs sleep. I've decided I am insane to have bought into this 4a departure time for the weekend getaway. Don... Read more
