Vacation countdown - Day 31

Day 31 - weight 220

The rain in Oklahoma over the last couple of days... maybe weeks... has me referring to it as Soaklahoma lately. I've been diagnosed in the past with seasonal affective disorder, so the gloomy weather and complete lack of sunshine has had me feeling, well, less than my best. I think that's why I'm so highly motivated for our vacation this summer.

June 25th we will be making the trek to Galveston, TX. Not only is this my first real vacation in a very long time (5 or 6 years, to be exact) but it's our very first family vacation. Something I have wanted to give my kids for forever is finally happening! So the last thing I want to be feeling while I'm there is self-conscious or dreading being in pictures. I want to have a fun time and enjoy that time with my husband and my kids. It will be my 4 year old son's first time on a beach. As a Jersey Girl transplanted in Oklahoma, that's basically criminal! I hope he loves as much as I do. My daughter is really looking forward to the Schlitterbahn waterpark, she cannot wait to try out all the rides. It's going to be so fun, I just can't wait!

SO I went swimsuit shopping today at JC Penney. I got 2 nice suits that look good, but if I could shed another inch or two before I'm on the beach, that would be awesome. If not, oh well, right? The important thing is the time. Sweet, precious, fleeting time.

I'm going to track my countdown via my SP blog, mainly for my own motivation and excitement building, but I also ask my Spark Friends and team members for their support. You've never failed me in the past in that department, but it's been a long time and a lot of the awesome people I was once so familiar with have also fallen to the wayside (like me) and haven't logged in for 100s of days. If you've never chatted with me, please, email or add me as a friend. I need your help and I will be there if you need mine.

Here's looking forward to Galveston. 31 days to go!
