Wedding now time to get serious using TOPS, too

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Crazy summer. Went to Quad Cities for reunion. Son and wife brought kids so that we could bring them home with us. Had a week here with the kids. Next year the electronics will be restricted.

Made the 2.5 day drive from MO to Long Beach with no close calls. Our VRBO house was wonderful except for the fact that the AC didn't work, the upstairs shower drain was plugged, the dark stone tile floor in the kitchen had never been cleaned (black bare feet resulted) and the owner and rental manager didn't return our calls. We survived all that and enjoyed the wedding and party that followed with my dd Sara and new sil Russell. Great time!! Even when, after the explanation of the chuppa, the chuppa was blown over. Just a powerful message.

My dh, my friend Sharon and I left LB Monday morning and headed to Las Vegas while the kids went to Disneyland and finished up their visit. I drove all but about 6 hrs of the trip and was very happy to get home. We took 2 days from LV and enjoyed a safe and uneventful trip.

After not being able to do anything the first day back, I have progressed with housework and laundry and now we are having cooler weather so the yard is my focus.

I have also decided to take advantage of a club accountability. Although I know I can lose with SP, I think I now may need to actually step on a scale in a group setting. The guys and gals seem very nice and welcoming as we are all in the same situation. There is one KOPS and the State second runner up to Male Best Loser. So let my future begin!!
