Finally, a relaxing day. I had a hard time getting up for church. I would have preferred to sleep in and go to 2nd service, but hubby likes 1st service best. After church we had a quick lunch at McAlisters. I stayed within ranges easily. Hu... Read more

I has been a very long day. We didn't get home from the tournament and to bed until after 11:00 last night. Then it was up at 5:00 to get to this mornings competition on time. We ate all meals out today and I still managed to stay within calo... Read more

I'm still not caught up on my sleep. Been yawning all day. Mom's mammogram went ok. Stinks that she had to have another one, but better safe than sorry. She was really worried about this one hurting. The tumor makes it painful to lift her l... Read more

Back to school today. It was so nice to have a predictably mundane day. My students were all relatively well-behaved, which was a real blessing. I am so tired that I'm right on the edge of being a super crab, and I hate being that way. Suppe... Read more

Today we went to the Pulmonologist. His office is over 2 hours from where Mom lives. She was nervous when we got there, and the chill in the air when we got out of the car took her breath away. He spent about 30 seconds with her, said her hea... Read more

Not much moving today. Most of it was spent in the car driving to Mom's so I can take her to her pre-surgery colonoscopy tomorrow. I thought that was a strange requirement, but you gotta follow doctor's orders. She was miserable having to dri... Read more

It's been a pretty good day. It warmed up enough that the ice melted so that we had safe travels to church. Since my son has a tournament on our anniversary, Hubby and I had lunch at Olive Garden to celebrate early. I deliberately saved half ... Read more
Done Pouting, But Not Through Mourning

I haven't blogged in a long time. I was in the midst of blogging about our trip to Italy when my jumpdrive died. I've been in mourning for a long time. I had just transferred EVERYTHING to that jumpdrive as a backup, then it died, along with ... Read more

Much to our surprise, no one was hungover this morning. Silvana explained that it was because Italians do not add sugar to their wines, and that it is all the added sugar in American wine that causes the hangovers. She said that is also why It... Read more

It was with mixed emotions that we departed Roma and headed north along the Tyrrhenian coastline through an area where many of the towns were founded at the very beginning of recorded history by the mysterious, highly civilized Etruscans. It wa... Read more

We started the day with a great breakfast buffet. I especially enjoyed the fresh pineapple and cheese. The chocolate croissants were a guilty pleasure to say the least. Yum! We met our city tour guide, Cinzia, and began our exploration... Read more
