    Good morning fellow athletes!

    Kathy, I'm so happy the meds are working for Mike. :hug: Lots of pixiedust: for you that it stays that way for good!

    Rose, sorry about the cc. :hug: That is so annoying! I'm dreaming of you inventing a whole line of GF foods, without any chance of cross contamination, and people some day will talk of Rose's, like they speak of Udi's or Amy's. :hippie: Safe travels and have a wonderful time with Tom! :flower3:

    Dottie, so, so sorry that the news about your FIL is not better. :hug: I will be sending lots and lots of good thoughts, pixiedust: and prayers for you, Jake and your whole family. :flower3:

    Nancy, bummer about the dental work. :hug: And don't worry about the binky thing -- it only seems like this stage will never end. It will! Don't rush it or turn it into a battle. :hippie: It wasn't that long ago that his world was rocked by the fact that Matthew was there to stay! ;)

    Lisa, having someone knock on the door asking to buy a house is very unusual in this day and age. :scared: Wouldn't it be nice if the timing and price worked out for both of you? :cool2: It's a sign, baby. :hippie:

    Maria, I would love to learn how to download e-books from the library. :cool2: I'm still pretty much a real book girl but for travelling and things like that it would be much easier to just cart around the tablet. Being a net of 8 pounds lost in 3 weeks is a winner in my book. :thumbsup2 I know your body is going to get with the program here this week, thank to all your hard work and then you will be 10 pounds down! ::yes:: Get some rest, too, my friend. :hug:

    Lindsay, you are fly dancing girl in my head! :thumbsup2 You never look as bad as you think you do so no worries! :hippie:

    Jen, you're trip is almost here! :dance3:

    They opened the registration for the WDW Marathon W/E early. It is supposed to be for Disney VISA card holders but seems to be working for everyone. It was $135 for the half which seems good to me. I am registered now. :donald:

    I'm just :fish: along here. Going to take my 2 pound gain that took me perilously close to 200 and grab hold of myself for the umpteenth time. :sad2: I'm coaching the big thread next week so that should help. I also have a short workout Saturday so I can do some housework -- that should help things not feel so out of control. A little sunshine instead of snow would help, too. :sunny: I think I'll take a page from our Rose's book and be sure I have some Vitamin D this week, too.

    Have a great day ladies!

    Dottie I'm so sorry about your FIL. :hug: :hug: :hug: Lots of prayers are with you and your family, especially Jake. I hope your family gets to spend lots of time with him, it sounds like he isn't too far away from you.

    Nancy I agree with Lisa, one big change at a time. First the new baby, then the big boy bed, he is doing well. I didn't have any binky issues, both my kids didn't like them so we didn't use them. But I can sympathize with the toilet training. DS was very difficult, sitting in a dirty diaper didn't bother him and that translated to underwear. I got A LOT of flak from relatives, especially my mom and MIL, very judgemental. I was on bed rest pregnant with DD at the time, which was a huge upheaval in our lives! Both of them spent time with us during this time and were determined to toilet train him, neither were successful. My mom actually declared "I give up" after 2 weeks! All these things will come. My DD was trained just before our WDW trip (daytime only, we still used nighttime pullups), which was nice. She only had 2 accidents on our 2 week Florida trip. One was at the condo we stayed at and one was in the Figment gift shop at Epcot. The second one wasn't that pleasant, but at least we had a change of clothes with us. :thumbsup2 Sorry for all the dental work. :headache:


    Lisa I seem to recall you were the BL of the week when you coach, so I'm sure next week will be awesome. I saw the Disney Visa discount, they did that for the DL half too. Alas, I still have to wait and see how this moving thing plays out. I need to get it in gear too!

    Rose Have a great weekend!


    Maria I wish I could lose 8 pounds in a month! You are doing great and I'm sure your body will adjust soon.

    I need to get these kids to school and then do my run. Have a wonderful day fellow athletes!

    dottie i'm so very sorry to hear the news of your FIL. i will be praying for you and your family today. certainly not a good friday for you. how is FIL dealing with this? i hope you are able to spend time with him and help him through this. i hope jake deals with it as best as possible. i was thinking the same thing rose said. boys just deal with things so differently. my cousin johnny just lost his grandpa a couple weeks ago (my aunt's dad) and he's been a little....angrier..than usual.

    ********

    hi my friends. i've been up since 1:30am and am in no position to post nice and shiny happy things so i'm just going to say hi and wish everyone a blessed good friday.

    i'm driving to CT in about an hour. i'm going to stop by my parents' house (should be interesting) and then head to the organic farm that my BFF mary runs. thomas will love it. i will not love the drive but oh well. we're going to have lunch with mary's mom and dad. her dad was my bball coach as a kid and her mom is just the nicest person ever.

    haven't run since sunday. absolutely no energy. i did go to two aerobics classes this week so that's something. saw 140.5 this morning! i might actually win the bet with my aunt mary!

    Fly by post here!

    It's hard being in limbo for sure, Lisa. We are coming on the time in the school year that things start to move in super speed too. Summer will be here before we know it. ::yes::

    I'll keep my fingers crossed on the WDW Marathon W/E for you! pixiedust: I need to have these races on the calendar to keep my behind from parking itself on the couch for awhile. ;) I have a 5 mile race in about 2 weeks! :scared:

    Woo hoo on the 140.5, Nancy! :woohoo: You were on the superstar list last week for the BL, too! :yay: Sorry about the sleeping thing. :hug: Hope this stage passes quickly. And remember girl, at least you are skinny! ;)

    Dottie, sending lots of good thoughts, prayers and pixiedust: your way!

    Rose, safe travels. :sunny:

    Jen, your trip is almost here! :yay:

    Kathy, miss you! :flower3:

    Maria, hope you got some rest. :thumbsup2

    Lindsay, when I saw you were tagged in a Zumba pic I thought I was going to get to see your moves like Jagger! ;)

    I am coaching the BL thread this week so come over and say "hi!"

    I already am down 1/2 a pound from the 2 lb gain I reported so that is a good start. I just need to do some regrouping this week-end. Thankfully it's an easy week-end and I should be able to do that.

    Have a great day ladies! I am so thankful and blessed to have you in my life. :hippie:

    Hello friends, and a happy weekend to you all!! I miss you all!! It's been a busy week, nothing special, but work has been busy, so there's been no cancelling or getting out early, which is really a good thing, but I'm feeling my increase in hours lately, especially now that baseball has started. I've missed my dis-time, but think about you all the time.

    I want to wish you a happy, blessed, peaceful Easter sunday.

    Love you all.:hug:

    Happy Easter to my dear, dear friends!!

    we are really lacking sleep over here! even thomas woke up at 5am to see what the easter bunny brought. hopefully that means he'll take a little nap in the car on the way to PA. really not looking forward to seeing john's family. can't wait til i'm back home!

    have a great day everyone. xoxo

    For some reason, our internet was not working yesterday. I was thinking of you all, and wishing you a Happy Easter!

    Hope to post more later...did something to my IT band Saturday. Got 6M in (longest since the Princess!), but resting now until it's fully healed...sigh.

    how was everyone's easter?

    i actually can't really complain. it wasn't fun by any means but it could have been a billion times worse. john's sister kathleen is really bad. she had to stop taking lithium because it was killing her liver so now she's on something else that has turned her into a zombie. at the restaurant she must have said at least 35 times "i'm getting stuffed flounder. stuffed flounder. i'm getting stuffed flounder." that's what MIL does too. says things over and over and over. she's like rain man...except she's mean. "ruined john's life. ruined it. ruined.ruined his life"

    anyway, it only took me two beers to get through dinner. and thank god, the traffic coming home was nonexistent. i couldn't believe it. last year it took us almost THREE hours to go what should have taken 45 min. this year? nada. i think god gave me a little break :)

    my eating and subsequent weight gain has really stunk. back on the wagon again. my stomach is killing me and it's all my fault. i have the colonoscopy and upper endoscopy scheduled for 4/20. looking forward to the prep kit....:sick:

    dottie i have been thinking about you. how did it go telling jake? how is FIL doing? hugs.

    did anyone see that article kathy posted on facebook? places to go with your kids? i really like that list and want to plan some trips in the future. there are so many places on there i've never been to. i bet our group has been to all of them since we have people from all over the country. i mean, sheesh, i've never even been to ellis island! i was never at the empire state building until i left the bronx and moved to CT. haha

    thomas has decided he wants to eat cereal with milk while holding the bowl in his lap and sitting on the couch. why did i allow this?? oh wait, i didn't. john did. ARGH!

    Thank you all for the prayers and support. We sat Jake down and broke the news to him Friday morning, I explained it as best as I could, mostly I just held him as we all cried. Sunday we drove over to my inlaws home for Easter Dinner- they are about an hrs drive away. My FIL is a man of few words, he and I could talk sports- Gators Football, College BB( Rose- he roots for the Wildcats even over the Gators:scared1: :thumbsup2) He's a Cardnial's Baseball fan and golf- he is a Mikelson fan-so wish he could have seen him win another Masters. He is not the senimental type- in 20 plus years- he told me the day I married his son -"welcome to the family", when I was pregnant with Jake and we decided to name Jake after my FIL he told me he was honored- and when DH and I had just started dating and DH had stayed out all night with me -he told DH "well I hope you were not out shacking up with that girl! :lmao: I can laugh about that now- even then I knew where I stood with him- Yesterday he gave a speach that brought us all to tears-even my MIL said he has never given her that many compliments at one time:goodvibes. We are a small family- Jake is an only child, as is my husband and my MIL- FIL lost his parents when he was very young and my in-laws are the only family I care to claim. I know in the months to come that I will be "faking it till I can make it thorugh" Thank you all for being there :grouphug:

    Good morning fellow athletes! :goodvibes

    Kathy, loved all the FB pictures! You look MARVELOUS -- you are so CLOSE to ONE-derland, I can tell. Come on! You can do it by the end of the month! ::yes::

    Nancy, glad that it wasn't too horrible yesterday. :hug: Poor John growing up in a house full of whacked out people. :sad2: Good luck with the endoscopy and gastroscopy. I'm sure Nurse Kathy will have some words of wisdom for you.

    Maria, ouch on the IT band thing. :hug: Do you have a tennis ball? That is what the PT recommended for me. Glad you are resting until you are healed. :flower3:

    Dottie, so sorry that your family is going through this. :hug: You can't control what is happening but you can control how you react. Don't forget to take care of YOU while you are taking care of everyone else! :flower3: We're here to vent to anytime that you need it.

    Jen, looked like people at your house were having a good time this week-end! :goodvibes

    Lindsay, hope the boys enjoyed their toys yesterday! :thumbsup2

    Rose, hope you had a great time with Tom this week-end! :goodvibes

    Lisa, hope that everyone enjoyed Easter at your house. :cool2:

    We had a nice week-end. Our Easter dinner entree was a big bust so don't have to worry about eating too much of that. :rotfl: About every 5 years DH really wants ham balls with a glaze -- luckily I do such a horrible job he won't ask for them again for looonnng time. :lmao: It was nice to have a quiet family Easter after the big family celebration.

    Robert decided to rock the tunes while Ed and I were at the Kroc on Saturday. :music: When I came home I could hear the music outside the house. :lmao: It was quickly turned down when he realized I was home. :scared: He was very considerate, though, and had put the dog outside before he did it because he didn't want to hurt her ears. :rotfl2:

    Looks like I will be at SSR for W&D. I've never stayed there but it will be nice to be close to DTD. I doubt if it would do any good to try and waitlist at BC or BWV -- what do you think?

    Have a great day everyone and don't forget to come say hi on the BL thread! :wave:

    ;)Good Morning all....I have missed you!!!

    Things have been crazy around here with girls quiting at work, one going on maternity leave and everyone trying to figure out how to keep things going. Easter was great fun....ate way to much....way way to much!!! had 5 LB GAIN :scared1::scared1::scared1::scared1::scared1: Now I know that I was carb heavy this weekend but really....5 lbs????? Good news is Kinect is up and running so getting Zumba Rush after work and hitting it hard.

    We are in single digits today!!! 9 days until DISNEY!! I can't wait!! work is going to be a waste for the next week....still have not found anything to wear for our dinner out to CG and with a 5 lb gain I am NOT going shopping!

    Sitting at work not wanting to do anything so think I will read back through the last couple of pages that I missed and catch up on everyone:laughing:

    lisaH we are owners at SSR. i've stayed in a studio once (on the horrible trip that was just me and my 19 month old:scared:) and the treehouses once. it is a beautiful resort and i love it. we are staying there again in may (treehouses). the number one best ever cast member works at SSR in the lobby as a manager type person. she helped me so much on that trip because i became really sick on the day we were leaving. anyway, you'll love it if you don't decide to waitlist. some people complain that it is very big but i feel like those people must not exercise at all or really move that much in general. from the treehouses we could get to the clubhouse in less than 10 minutes!

    Good morning ladies!!

    Maria-So sorry about the IT band. How are you feeling after a couple days of rest? I hope it heals quickly and you are able to run again soon.:hug:

    Dottie-:hug:Sounds like things are going as well as can be expected, and your fil is coming to terms with things and at peace with it. I remember the weekend after my mom was diagnosed, just our whole immediate family was there for a cookout, and she was so peaceful, taking in the beautiful sunshine, watching the kids play in the yard, and just enjoying every minute she could. I hope you and your family have many moments like that in the weeks and months ahead. :hug:

    Nancy-Ok, so now that I'm crying, I'll move on to you and your bowels.:rotfl2: The prep, as you know is sooooo not fun, but the drugs are fabulous. And remember to step on the scale in the morning, cuz the prep is good for a good 5-10 pound weight loss. :rotfl2: Glad to hear Easter with the in-laws went as well as can be expected. I'm here if you have any questions too.

    LisaH-Thanks for the compliment. Yes, I am very close to Onederland, and am feeling back on track today. I can't wait to join you there soon. I think the end of the month is a good plan. What are ham balls? I'm sure there were some chuckles about them. We made cake pops and had lots of laughs dipping our balls in chocolate saturday night. :rotfl: Glad you had a nice quiet easter. You are doing great on the bl thread as always.

    Rose-Hello there! Hope you had a nice visit with Tom. I forget, are you still away?

    Lindsay-Cute pic on facebook. Nothing like rocket launchers. Hope none landed on the roof. :laughing:

    LisaR-Hope you had a nice, snow-free easter out there!!

    Jen-You must be soooo excited!! happy packing!!

    Good morning! I've been a little absent, just busy, I guess. Nothing exciting. Baseball practice has started, and it's been busy at work, so that's good. The docs finally signed the contract they've been working on for over a year, so we are hoping things will pick up and stay there for a while. A new doc is coming in july, so that's good.
    We have school vacation next week, so I'm scheduled to work mon and tues and took the rest of the week off. I may get tuesday off too because 4 docs are off, so I'm up for cancel, but won't know til monday. We're going to put poko in the daycare overnight for 2 nights and go to jim and beths for the end of the week. Figured it would be good to try her out for a short trip and see how she does. She loves it during the day, so I'm hopeful she'll just sleep like she does at home after day care, and be fine.

    It's good to be back, and catch up a bit. I feel like there was more to comment on from last week, but I can't remember right now.

    Off to walk Poko and get to work. Have a wonderful day!!!

    Dottie- Im so sorry to hear about you FIL. You and your family and especially Jake are in my prayers.:hug:

    Rose- I hope you enjoyed your time with Tom.

    Maria- I think I jinxed you. While I was running yesterday I was thinking about injuries and how lucky I have been to not had to deal with any really bad running injuries yet. I was actually thinking about this around mile 9 when my hips felt like they were going to lock up and break.:lmao: I was thinking about all of you and how so many of our group has overcome so many different obstacles of injuries but yet we are all still determined to keep on going. I was thinking wow I dont remember Maria really having any major injuries. oops there it was the big jinx. I promise I wont think like that anymore.:headache: I hope you feel better soon.:hug:

    LisaH- Oh yes Robert is at that age now isnt he. I remember those days of feeling so cool while blasting the music.....now it would give me a headache.:lmao: Glad you had a nice quiet easter and way to go on getting right back on the wagon. I will try to stop over on the BL thread havent been there in a long while. I bet this will be a great week for you.

    Kathy- I guess at least you can relax knowing that you have good job security.:lmao: Although more hours sounds good on paper or the check book its never really fun once you have to actually do it. I hope you get some time off this week to enjoy.

    Nancy- Glad the day wasnt too painful on Sunday with the inlaws and now you can avoid doing that again for awhile. I have been loving all the cute pics and videos you have been sharing on facebook. Woohoo for the weigh in. I can see a 130's dance in your near future. When is the finish date for the bet with your aunt mary????

    Jen- OMG the trip is getting so close you must just be bursting with excitement. Are the kiddos still ok with you leaving?

    Lisa- Hope you had a great Easter!

    **********************************************************

    Well its back to work today for me.:guilty: My kids were so well behaved for us this long weekend that it made it hard for me to return. It probably helped that Mike was off with us. Why do they always listen so much better when he is around???? It drives me crazy.

    Nick had a fun bday party on Saturday and although I was pooped I made myself get up early to do online ADR's for our trip. I got everything I wanted except found out the Hoopty Do is closed from Oct 1 through the end of the year for refurb.:sad2: So we are going to do Mickeys backyard bbq instead. Im not sure how everyone will like it but Mike was sold when he heard they have beer included and I was sold on the unlimited Mickey bars.:lmao: We had to move our Ohana dinner to tuesday night because the BBQ only is on a thur or sat. We are now celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary at the BBQ instead of ohanas.

    The kids got a lot for easter and we now have 3 bags of candy in our house. :mad: It was an enjoyable day and we had decent weather minus the wind.

    Yesterday I did my longest run of the training plan. 10 miles. It went well and I pretty much held a 13 min/mile pace so I am ok with that. I would like to be closer to 12 but it is what it is.

    The brighter note is last week I did get back into onederland...over the weekend I went back up to 200.8 but today I was down again to 198.8 so hopefully I can keep going down. My half is in 3 weeks and I would like to get as close to 190 as possible. Last year I was 186 when I did this half so I am hoping to be within 5lbs.

    Oh and I took the kids to the dentist yesterday and we need to take Ryan to the orthodontist because he has a crossbite and his teeth are a mess of different shapes and angles but also one baby tooth never came down and now the other teeth are crowding and it wont have room to ever come in. They said most times the ortho will do a palate expander to make room for the teeth as a phase 1 and then eventually do braces. So I am going to schedule him an appt for may or june when we are off and see what they say. I guess there is a chance that they can also say that he needs that tooth to be pulled and that will not be fun at all. I have a very strong feeling that I will not be making it to marathon weekend this year just way to many expenses coming in. I am not counting it out completely yet but Its not looking too promising.:sad2:

    Ok well its back to work now. Talk to you soon.

    Good Afternoon, Fellow Athletes!

    My IT band is feeling better, and I'm walking with just twinges. I'm going to walk/jog on the TM tomorrow morning. The level of exertion depends on how it feels. I feel confident I can at least walk.

    Tons of merger drama (this time I got to participate :rolleyes1), but what else is new? It's going to be a fun year as we all settle in...

    I'm happy to be going to WW tomorrow, but pretty sure it's going to be yet another gain. I didn't do great on Easter, and kind of had a mini-eating meltdown last night. :blush: Sigh. I think I just needed to get it out of my system.

    I need to change our reservation to a LK Suite w/FD. I wasn't going to do it, then I got some great DIS advice, which told me I could take Dennis's 2-day ticket from his pass and add it to my new KTTW card in January, so it's like I'm pre-purchasing my admission, and getting FD! I was paying rack rate anyway, so why not? :confused3 We will probably do one TS meal, that I'll have to do OOP, but really, we mostly want to eat CS, and free is free! ;)

    Lindsay -- No, you did not jinx me. I totally did this to myself. I knew I did not warm up properly, and I went ahead anyway. That is what I got. Not going to do that again :sad2: a belated :bday: to Nick! I'm glad he had fun, and congrats on the ADRs! :yay:

    Kathy -- Your Apr Vacation plans sound like fun to me! We are not going anywhere. We'll both be off Monday (barring I have to come in, which could happen since I have a proposal due Tuesday...), I'm taking off Wednesday, and Dennis will be home Thursday. We'll try to do some fun things with Ben, but mostly he will be cleaning his play room and bedroom, and enjoying sleeping in.

    Jen -- I cannot believe it is so close to your trip! I would have lost all ability to focus by now. I bet you are doing a great job with your packing and planning! :thumbsup2

    LisaH -- I love the story about Robert! I remember when I used to do that -- and the houses were close together. One night I had played the SNF soundtrack way too many times, and they neighbors all cheered and said "Thank You! We Loved the BeeGees" concert. Of course, that meant they were done of that! :rotfl: I admit I've never had ham balls, and it doesn't sound overly appealing to me... but I'm sure yours are delicious :hug:

    Dottie -- I'm glad you got through telling Jake, and you were able to enjoy a nice family Easter. Your FIL's speech will be a special memory :grouphug:

    Nancy -- You did it! Every holiday you survive without homicide is a good one :rotfl2: I saw some very cute photos of adorable boys on FB! How wonderful to be surrounded by all that sweetness :lovestruc

    LisaR -- I don't know when I'm going to ever see another loss at WW, but I'm going to keep trying. Easter did not do me any favors. I really think at this point next Wednesday will be the day! :goodvibes

    Who did I miss? Oh Rose! -- I could never forget you! Here's another reason to come in Jan. -- the O'Hana cousins meet and B&C Saturday afternoon! You know you want some ice cream! :flower3:

    Need to finish a few things at work. Is it wrong I'm already looking forward to the weekend? :lmao:

    Maria :upsidedow

    Jen--California Grill dress code:
    Dress Code Guidelines:
    Men: Khakis, slacks, jeans, dress shorts, collared shirts. Sport coats are optional.
    Ladies: Capris, skirts, dresses, jeans, dress shorts.
    Not permitted in dining room: Tank tops, swimwear, hats for gentleman, cut offs, or torn clothing. While T-shirts are now allowed, the policy remains that T-shirts with offensive language or graphics are not acceptable.

    My thoughts--You will see people all over the place up there including jeans and t-shirts. I would say a cute sundress with cute sandals would be perfect. But anything that looks a little dressy will work. Mike will wear golf shorts (fancy khaki shorts ;)) and a collared shirt and I will wear a dress with a sweater. It is always cold, so take a sweater. It is such a lovely evening, and I never understood the people who didn't make it extra special by dressing up at least a little. But I think I tend to be a little southern in that respect.:goodvibes

    Dottie--:hug: Thinking of you. :hug:

    Maria--ugh itband. I second the tennis ball. And for you too Lindsay on your glutes/hip. I hope you are feeling better and I hope the merger stuff goes ok.:goodvibes Great job on the free dining! Can't wait to see you!:goodvibes

    LisaR--thanks for all the cooking suggestions. Are you getting snow? It got chilly here again and we have frost warnings. We got spoiled with our warm temps!

    Lisah--Last week I had a great run on the treadmill and I decided that I just needed to do w&d. Again....But then this week I found out I am taking the LSAT, oh, I mean paying for the LSAT.:rotfl2: And for other things coming up. I just don't want to be a grown up! Thanks for the suggestions for ds.:goodvibes I think it is worth waitlisting bw/bc. The short waitlists come through sometime and it is a while still until the race.

    Lindsay--What day is your 1/2? I am thinking we might be on the same weekend. We can pretend we are running together! I hope you have kicked the 200s to the curb for good! I hope there is no tooth pulling!

    Kathy--I think it's a great idea to try Poko overnight for a few days. Petie (who really should take xanax he is so anxious;)) has finally stopped peeing on the floor every time we drop him off to be boarded.:thumbsup2 Poko is used to going there so I am sure she will do great!

    Nancy--glad you survived the outlaws. What's with the no sleeping? I saw the paci post on facebook, and I say let him have it if he needs it. I wish we would have let Tom keep his longer--there really was no reason to take it from him when we did. Good luck with the tummy stuff. Is that going to mess with the bfing too much?

    ****
    Let's see what's new. Stomach is feeling better--no more of that pb for me. I ran a 9:03 mile today on the tm after doing 3 miles on the elliptical, so I was pretty happy with that. And without my inserts--I have been testing it out to see how my foot does. I had a lot of problem with my back this weekend--but I have decided it was from sitting in the car. I put some blankets under my bottom and sat differently on the way home yesterday and that helped a bit. When we flew last time my back was really aggravated too, so I have to pay attention to that.

    The trip was good. Not too much drama, only a couple of tears--we were having trouble finding somewhere to eat dinner saturday and my family does not do well when we are all tired and hungry. All in all a pretty fun trip.

    We got detoured Thursday night because of the highway collapse. Friday morning--another detour--not sure why this time. And Friday afternoon sat in a detour/traffic mess cause joe biden was going to kiawah and they closed the bridge. Uggh.

    We toured a tea plantation, drove down a dirt road to see the oldest tree on the east coast (very cool), toured the Yorktown (a retired aircraft carrier), walked over this cool bridge over Charleston Bay, went to the beach, walked around in downtown Charleston, saw a USC baseball game and walked around in downtown Columbia. We walked 15 miles on Saturday and a bunch on Friday and Sunday. Busy, but fun.:goodvibes

    Our hotel lost power Sunday morning which was interesting. It was just one of those trips for weird things to happen.

    Missed you all. I will ttyl.:goodvibes
