My husband created this timer.

Tomorrow is packing day which gives us plenty of time to grab anything we need and have forgotten.


This was last nights workout:


It was hard. Oh so very hard. It is 550 moves x 2. Now let’s assume that I’m feeling wimpy and I only did a third, which is not true, that would still be 367 moves!  Every part of me feels heavy today. My pants almost didn’t go on because the muscles in the front of my legs are so swollen today. I’ve had to stop weighing myself randomly and now it’s scheduled for tuesday mornings. Those are the mornings that I go at least 48 hours without intensive workouts. After a really hard workout my weight goes up by 2 to 5 pounds. That’s ridiculous.

This is our current list of things that we would like to try and see on vacation:

Les Invalides
Pont des Arts
Eiffel Tower
The Louvre
Notre Dame de Paris
Arc de Triomphe
Galeries Lafayette
Sacred Heart Basilica of Montmartre (Sacre-Coeur)
Moulin Rouge
Musee d’Orsay
Père Lachaise Cemetery
Château de Versailles

Anne Frank House
Van Gogh Museum
Royal Palace of Amsterdam
Rembrandt House Museum
The Canal Bus

We usually have a loose plan the day before so we can adjust as needed but so we don’t waste hours doing the “what do you want to do? I don’t know, what do you want to do?” game.

Two weeks is a long time to be away from home and dogs and birds. I hope my son gives them all enough attention. And I hope my daughter isn’t so busy she can’t check in on my son. Two weeks is also a long time to be alone in a house with only birds & dogs.

For the most part  – I am a nice person. Really I am. I mostly think nice things about nice people. There are a few exceptions, and I do feel really bad when I think bad things about people.

But sometimes when someone posts something really really stupid on a Social Network I wish I was a lot more raw and could say things like “are you f’ing kidding me?” Especially when it’s someone my age.

  1. You know, you have to tell me now, Well, you don’t really but you have me interested.

    Does your daughter know your concerns? If so, I think she will be there.

    Do you feel stronger since you started working out like that? I hope so. You are a marvel. I am glad you do that.

    The trip looks amazing. I am so excited for you. It is nice your hubby has already been because he will have a good feel for it all and it will be easier to enjoy.

    1. I will tell my daughter this weekend. I was supposed to have lunch with her and my son on Wednesday but it didn’t work out.
      I feel amazingly stronger. I can do things I haven’t been able to do in a long time. Silly things like opening jars, or yoga poses that I didn’t know I could do. Because I also do yoga I have the flexibility as well which makes it nice.

  2. I am in awe of your workout. I have aspirations of such things but thats where it srarts and ends. Two weeks I Europe! How positively cool!

    I’m backing away slowly from Social Networking…..again. I’ll blog privately but I’m bib hy bit trying to delete my social food pri t as much as possible and go away quietly. I’m just too weird to participate regularly and feel okay about it. I’ve really given it a try but its just not my bag.

  3. Hope you have a good and safe trip, don’t forget the camera. Muscle is heavier than the other thing, it’s possible that you are building it. Swearing doesn’t match you. 🙂

      1. Wow sort of surprising but I guess under the right circumstances swearing and muscles can be a good thing 😀
