WOW is all I can say about that trip. I had a great time with my friends from school, Mr. P and I had a good two days in NYC, I had fun seeing my cousins and aunt for my nephew's 3rd birthday party, and my sister and I arrived home yesterday with the baby (we flew), and the boys got here this afternoon (Mr. P drove the truck with the furniture, my brother in law drove the car with the pets). On Monday (when College Kid returns from camp) I will have my whole family in the same zip code, and that makes me very happy.
I DID gain 2.2 lbs which is a bit disheartening, considering I ran 5/9 days. However, I indulged in TWO Fluffernutter Crumbs cupcakes, macaroni and cheese, super brunch, Cake Batter Confetti ice cream cake, pizza, eggplant parmigiana, two ice cream cones WITH sprinkles, beer, pommes frittes, creme brulee...OH JEEZ, maybe it is a great thing I only gained 2.2 lbs.
I did a little run this morning, having to get re-acclimated to the Alabama heat, so I am back working the system. For the first time today I tried the yogurt/Kashi/fruit breakfast combination and I LOVED it. That is definitely going into my repertoire, I think I need to force breakfast into my routine, especially since I teach mornings in the Fall.
I still have lots to tell you, including how my mom called me on my birthday to ask if she could live with Mr. P and I for two months because she wants a "transition" to moving to the town we now all live in...yeah. Remember what happened in May? Some of you read my sister's blog, so you know my mother's latest weird ass shit. My nephew wanted a Blue's Clues birthday, and if you didn't know...Blue's Clues is OUT, can't find Blue's stuff anywhere. So, we were chatting about that and she told us that she googled Steve because she was pretty sure that Blue's Clues went off the air because Steve is a pedophile. She jumps to these insanely judgemental conclusions and that drives me batty. But, not to be outdone in being weird by my Mom, Dad has decided that he is coming to my nephew's Alabama birthday party and bringing his new girlfriend (to stay.at.my.house). GAG.
So Mr. P and I will be empty nesting for Thursday night before we have creepy company. score.
