What a trip

Hello, hello.

My last post truly displayed just how totally exhausted I am! Eegads.

Okay, so I made this trip for the memorial, but also to help my sister get started on HCG. While out here, my parents had an interview in Seaside, 90 minutes from Portland, last Tuesday. The kids and I drove to meet them there and then to cruise down the coast another 6 hours to where they had been living and working. They got word that they were hired for the new position in Seaside the following day so we spent 2 days packing their home. Not much time! My parents are amazing that way.

While there, I got a call from one of my previous client's mom. She and her husband are ready to make an offer on a home they found! Thank goodness for great clients and modern technology!! I have the papers put together.

Yesterday we drove back up the coast to Seaside. My GOD, it was gorgeous. The sun was shining almost the entire trip and it was absolutely spectacular.

We're at a hotel where the kids can swim. We're about to do that and then start the very long trek home. 13.5 more hours on the road... Maybe I can get a grip on the crap food this side of the trip! Gah!

I don't know how you do it all! REALLY!!! I'm tired just reading all that you have done and accomplished since you've been gone- And you're not even home yet!!

You sound good and must be having fun, with your family and extended family. It was a good getaway, yes?

If you put on any extra lbs, you can quickly take those off once you get home. Its just too hard to try to eat 'clean' or anything resembling 'healthy' when you are traveling on the road. Enjoy your trip, and buckle down when you get home.

love to you.

I don't know how you do it all, either. You are one busy gal!

And I agree that it's too hard to eat healthy on the road. Treats turn into a daily occurrence far too easily. But those kinds of gains are only temporary.
