Needing a vacation.

Well, we all made it back from D.C. safe and sound. We had an amazing trip. It was great visiting family and seeing the sights. My boys thought the metro was the coolest thing they'd ever done. The only problem is, I need a vacation to recover from my vacation! Our first flight home (the one directly to Jacksonville) was cancelled so they put us on another flight with a layover in Atlanta. We boarded our flight and sat on the tarmac for an hour, then they told us that we were on a ground stop and had to get off the plane and wait. By this time my two boys were not happy campers.

After a long wait we took off and landed in Atlanta with 15 minutes to spare. We had to run across the airport carrying the kids to board the plane in time. We arrived in Jacksonville much later than planned and didn't get home until 4am Sunday. I'm STILL exhausted. So, I need a recovery vacation.

Food wise...well, I hate to come admit this, but it wasn't great. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't great. Weigh in today showed a gain of 1.4 pounds. I'm ok with it, it'll come off. The good news is that I didn't go crazy or anything, but I did enjoy sushi one night and cookout food yesterday. I'm trying to tell myself that it's part of life, enjoying food with friends, as long as you don't go overboard, and I didn't....too much. Do I sound like i'm rationalizing? Maybe I am.

Hopefully everyone had a fabulous long weekend!


  1. I think you have the correct attitude about the food - it is part of life and that little gain will easily remedy itself.
    Sorry about the whole Atlanta experience - I remember hearing a comedian said that everyone on the way to h@ll has a layover in Atlanta, and I think he must have been right!
    Glad you're home safe & had fun!

  2. Its really hard to stay on track when you're on vacation. Glad you guys had fun!
