Hawaii was amazing!! We had a great time and I've never seen anyplace as amazing and beautiful! We were able to do a lot of sightseeing which meant a lot of walking.
I was also able to walk about an hour each morning. So I'm very proud of that!! Tried to watch my eating and didn't do too badly considering my choices. However, we were celebrating so I wasn't too rigid.
We got home Wednesday morning at 6:30! UGH!! I felt awful all day---don't like to fly so flying all night and trying to sleep sitting up is NOT my idea of a good time. Yesterday was the first day I felt somewhat "normal". I finally started walking again yesterday--donned my winter walking gear and headed out. Worked great but, man, that wind about froze my face!!! It seems I gained almost 2 pounds while gone and, according to scale now, I've lost those 2 already. Happy me!! I would like to keep losing for a while. We'll see. Right now it's more important to me that I feel good--you know, strong and healthy.
I'm still trying to catch up with house and laundry. I have a meeting at GMU this afternoon to get my intern assignments for this semester. It seems every semester the paperwork and computer info is different!! Keeps me on my toes---and also frustrates me!!! Hope the rain quits because it's quite a hike from the parking lot to the building!!
Dad continues status quo. My brother has gone on a little get away this week so I'm thinking I may call the hospice nurse to get some info. We'll see.
Hope you all are having a great January. Winter is about a third over!! YAY!!! It hasn't been too bad here so far (knock on wood, cross my fingers, etc.)
