I'm almost finished packing! The dog whisperer has agreed to come and take care of the livestock. My loose ends at work are getting handled one by one. I still have a gnawing concern the battery on my cell phone will die about 18 hours into our trip but I'm trying to convince myself that that will be ok!! I have a suspicion cell phones won't work where we are going anyway, but I'm still enough of an addict I'm trying to decide if I should run and buy a travel charger just in case. For those of you that don't know, we're going to Kettle Falls, WA. We'll be on a 62' houseboat on Lake Roosevelt for four days with 12 other people (so, 16 total). Fishing, jet skiing, swimming in the lake... I'm so excited!! I'm a little worried about this sinus crap I have going on. I'm on day 4 of a 5 day antibiotic so I'm hoping for a miracle cure soon. Last night I kept both of us up with my coughing. I finally took a few doses of the prescription cough medicine they gave me and it must have done the trick. I still woke up in the morning so I'd say all in all it was successful.
Last night hubby made fish tacos for dinner. I was skeptical (to say the least) at first but it was really very good. After dinner hubby, the youngest and I worked on the weights, lower body, and jump roped. I guess for my records I should note that I fell once, while doing lunges. Later in the night the youngest and I were "Shredding it with Jillian" and I almost fell again, at which point I pushed the glass table more behind her and as far away from me as possible. Even with the design changes to the room, the youngest was still done. She seems to get the most stressed (out of the four of us) about my balance issues. I think she was too little to remember when I had real problems, and maybe that's why she's so in tune to my little quirks now. Either way, I was relieved to be done exercising and then I did something really crazy! I had my first bottle of green iced tea!! I'm not a tea drinker, not a coffee drinker. To all of the diet pepsi haters in my life you'll be glad to know I kind of liked the green tea drink! It's safe to say I will be drinking more of it. :-)
