The Unsinkable Wumpus

I'm so glad that we got a chance to visit Kate and Cy in Pocatello. The visit was very relaxing. I was recovering from my cold for most of the visit, but we had a great time visiting and just enjoying the time together.

One outing we did take was to the museum to visit a Titanic exhibit. (An exhibit about the ship NOT a gargantuan run of the mill museum exhibit.) Kate, Norm and I (Cy had to work), were each given actual identities of passengers aboard that doomed ship. We toured the exhibit and in the end, we read the list of passengers to determine whether or not we survived. I am happy and sad to report that while Kate and I survived, alas Norm did not. He took it well.

We woke up this lovely April spring morning to about three more inches of snow. I wanted to break the snow record this year but this is quite enough. I am so ready for summer. Let's just skip spring and head directly to 70 degree plus weather.

Jeff house and dog sat for us while we were in Pocatello. What a blessing he was!! He fixed my heater core in my car, took some stuff that's been sitting around for far too long to the dump, and bathed the dogs. He even got their nails clipped.

I decided while I was returning to Spokane that I would try to take better care of myself. I will keep you posted about my progress. Lately I have not been doing a very good job: too focused on work, no exercise, and poor food choices. This little trip made me really appreciate how wonderful I have it: fantastic husband, an amazing daughter and son-in-law, and a wonderful son. I really enjoy them all but I haven't been treating myself very well, so I haven't been feeling great. I'm worth feeling great for my own sake and for the sake of those I love. I cleaned the house today and made good food choices.

I've planned a week of healthy eating and I will get back on that exercise routine!!
