road trip!

Ah - I was up stupidly late gathering things, packing up a baby gift/birthday gift for my nephew and his new little boy and packing for my reunion. I found a nice little sweater and some Dr. Seuss books for my new great nephew (man that makes me sound old...) and want to get them in the mail along with a birthday card and one of the last jars of my Mum's jam (my nephew's fave) before I get busy and they are stupidly late. Still got up this AM and after an apricot I was in for Workout B and my abfest and 28 minutes on the bike. I've found fruit is OK before a workout and it gives me a little extra oomph when I can fit it in...I'm learning what I can eat pre-workouts. I checked the gym scale on my monthly weigh in and I'm a little reassured - I have only 3 Lbs left to return from my holiday splurges...I can do that. August will whip me back into shape.

Now it's a morning of work before I head out back to my old stomping grounds for the weekend. I'm so curious to see what everyone has been up to the last few decades. I'm planning on doing my best to not be shy and just visit and try and catch up with people. There will only be about 20 of us plus families so I'm sure I can be a social animal for a few days...I refuse to clam up and slide back into the old shy self conscious me...that isn't *me* anymore. :) I'm really looking forward to a nice visit with the parents of one of my closest friend's - they were/are like second parents to me and they still live back where I went to high school. Here's hoping for a nice weekend of visits...I think I will enjoy driving on my own, blasting tunes and singing to myself in the car :) J will hold down the fort while I'm gone...

Hope you all have a great weekend
