I'll be leaving in 2 hours to start my vacation and I can NOT find words to express my enthusiasm!!! But of course I'll try!
We went to a local fair last night sans lil boy. The guys thought we were just going for fun; they're never completely right LOL. I used it as a trial run of my "I can do well eating and get fitness in on a vacation" plan.
If you've never been to a small town fair then let me describe your food choices: Fried dough, blooming onions, deep fried twinkies, fries, burgers and dogs, assorted carbonated beverages and highly sweetened lemonade. While I LOVE fried dough, I managed to skip it last night and went for the fries, small portion, thank you very much and brought along my own water bottle. I'm so smug right now.
Also I saw a chain saw master create a bear out of a log...very cool. When I asked the guys, "Just what does one do with it now that it's done" Both replied a bit more snidely than I think the question warranted: One said, "You put it in front of your house, of course!" and the other said, "Can't you see the bear is holding a sign that says Welcome?" Well excuse my ignorance of log carved animals etiquette! San Francisco seemed much further than 3000 miles last night...
I don't do carnival rides. I just don't trust giant machines running at high speeds that unfold off the back of the truck. I did however play a little skeeball, only to get my lowest score ever! Those games are soooo rigged LOL
I think my vacation trial run went well as I walked for an hour and a half and I made the best choice as was available to me. I can't wait to get the tent set up and run to the lake and swim and, yes, make s'mores! We have scrabble, cards, and dominoes all packed - it's gonna be GREAT! I will be away from SP and that's a bit sad but I promise to write everyday and tell you all my exciting adventures when I return!
