Woubbie - the B & B sounds wonderful!

I made a mental note about the cream cheese packets. I have also heard of people eating the butter with some salt if they don't have any food yet.

I'm in Indiana, PA today and tomorrow for my son's college orientation. Long boring day, though lots of useful info and food for thought.

We stayed at a lovely B&B last night in a place called Dilltown. Had the whole darn place to ourselves! Beautiful old house and garden on a creek and right next to a hiking/biking trail. Might actually have to travel the trail one of these days!

Breakfast was very nice, but the poor woman had to get there at 5am to have everything ready for us to eat by 6 - we had to be off by 6:30! Wonderful eggs and ham and blueberries. Plenty of excellent coffee.

Late this morning at the orientation, though, I was starting to feel pretty hungry, and all they had was the standard carb crap - muffins, bagels, and pastries, plus oj and coffee (no decaf). For once I didn't have any munchies with me and I was starting to feel a little low in the blood sugar department. I looked over the table again thinking I might have to resort to eating some of the junk when I spotted a big bowl of jelly packets. Nestled amongst them were cream cheese packets. Hurray! I was saved! Luckily no one noticed the lunatic in the back of the hall eating a couple of the cream cheeses with a plastic knife. I managed to survive another hour until lunch at 12:30.

It poured buckets as I made my way to the dining hall. I kept the top third of me dry, and my purse and bag, but the rest was pretty soggy.

More indoctrination all day tomorrow, and then we're done at 5pm. Two hour drive home and then we can enjoy the weekend. I did manage to get a few "action items" off the college list today (some financial aid info I needed, and some contact info he'll probably need before school starts).

~ Declutter my current batch of paper and clerical To-Do's by
~ Getting all my daily personal clerical upkeep tasks done in the first hour of the day and
~ Scheduling my workday workouts like I would schedule a meeting and
~ Scheduling a defined half hour for lunch, when I work/play only on personal business

It's noon here, and 99 degrees. It's the start of the real summer heat, heading for 108. The dogs and I have been taking our walks close to sunset, when both the air and the roads are cooling off a bit, but today's is projected to be about 102 at 7pm. I think that's going to be too much for them.
I wish I knew how to re-program my body clock so I could sleep through the night, wake early, and take them walking then. Exercise in the summer is always a challenge.

It's drizzly and gray here again today, but supposed to hit 70 later today. Muggy...!

Gail, I wish I had a Whole Foods nearby, but I make do with Trader Joe's which is about 30 minutes north of me. All my Canadian neighbors come down and hit that store and it gets crazy busy, but if I go early on Sunday mornings I can find parking! :)

I'm sitting at my desk like a stunned bunny trying to figure out where to start and what's most important. Eeep.

Suzanne - I remember when my daughter was young and still living at home. I would love those days when she was still asleep, and I could get up and have a little quiet time before anyone else got up.

I lost 2 pounds today! emoticon I had been stalled for almost a month, and then actually gained 2 pounds. But yesterday decided to tweak my nutrition tracker after using a website nutritional calculator that gives you the calories, carbs, fats and protein grams you need to intake. And today I am down 2 pounds.

Here is the link: http://www.phlaunt.com/diabetes/33614154.p

There is also a post and thread going on about this tracker. I think it's Nutritional Calculator.

Anyway, I am going to use this handy tool and see if it works for me longterm. I like it because you can put any carb amount in, and it will give you your numbers to tweak your SparkPeople nutrition tracker.

Other than that, I am stuck home because my hubby's truck is in the shop. Maybe I can go out and trim my dead roses off and make the yard look more groomed.

I have a gym class for James this morning, his first one! Andrew is off to dance camp. Then I need to go grocery shopping. Right now, everyone is still asleep.
