SOOO on to more exciting stuff. I worked Saturday until noon. The town Memorial Day parade was held an hour or so after I got off work. It is actually a very historical parade...as it's the oldest continually running parade in the country. Todd and I volunteer and donate the sound system for the grandstand.so of course we were there.

Eventually she moved and I got up. Todd kept snoozing away, so I headed out to the fire pit. I spent some time cleaning up the yard and recovering various items (cooking tongs and skewers were strewn about..I moved chairs too...that sort of thing). I also spent a few minutes adding water to the hot tub and heavily shocking the hot tub to return it back to it's pristine perfectly chemicalized (my word...but it works) state after it's HEAVY usage. (There was at least one person in the hot tub continually from about 4PM and until the party ended at 1 or 2 AM). I went inside and washed all the dishes from Saturday night and packed up our gear for our Sunday fun.
Out on the river we went! The weather was perfect! We enjoyed a nice lunch on the boat and had a grand time! All in all we were out for about 6-7 hours. Long day but so much fun!
Today, Memorial Day has turned into a relaxing work around the house day. I hadn't done one stitch of laundry last week....that needed to be done. Todd had/has some work to do around the outside of the place, so he's been outside. I've been getting inside stuff done. :-) (Ohhh...and we went to town this morning for an errand...and I saw my family for a few minutes...that makes me a happy girl!)
I was worried about my weight this morning. Yesterday on the boat Shantel (one of our hosts) and I nibbled on food all day long. Saturday night I ate at the party and really didn't think or worry about what I was eating. Not something I recommend for weight loss. But hey...it's life, I would be totally insane if I said that it was never going to happen. I stepped on the scales and the scales read 232.6. I'll take it. Two rough days of eating (OK, they weren't rough...they were fantastically delicious!)and right now I've been lucky. But I've got to turn this ship around...or at least turn it a bit healthier so that I can maintain that the rest of the vacation.
We shall see what comes next...but I'm here....I'm hanging tight and best of all....I'm enjoying my vacation time thus far!
