    Thanks

    Yeah, our boys all wanted cash too.

      1. June 6 - Daughter’s 16th Birthday
      2. June 6 - Band 20th Anniversary Concert
      3. June 8 - Vegas!!!!!!!
      4. June 11th – Farmer’s 50th Birthday
      5. June 14th – Home & back to “normal” life

      Food

      Protein shake, various salads, hamburger patty, a vodka cooler, a bottle of white wine

      Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes

      Off Plan Eating: I avoided TONS of “non primal” food choices, including the cake.
      However I drank a whole bottle of white wine…This morning I had a “wine headache”.

      Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
      5 Tibetan Rites – 10x
      L2 Plank – 40 sec

      Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain

      Bed Friday night around 11, up at 7 Saturday morning.

      My Army Wannabe Son called from the bank machine in town. He was on his way to a motocross race and couldn’t withdraw enough $ from the machine. He has a $100 limit (I’d thought we’d removed that, but evidently we hadn’t. I’ll take care of that Monday) I stayed up when I got home.

      Exercise, MDA, Band Video, Dishes, Laundry, Groceries.

      I made a Greek salad and we went to a friend’s surprise 50th Birthday Party. He was surprised. He was with a friend and the friend couldn’t get him to leave. His wife had to call him and tell him the basement was flooded! It was an “everyone bring a salad and your own booze and we’ll provide the burgers” kind of party. There were lots of good food choices for me.

      From 5-11pm I drank a bottle of wine. I didn’t get “drunk” but I have a “wine headache” today…

      We left around midnight.

        1. June 6 - Daughter’s 16th Birthday
        2. June 6 - Band 20th Anniversary Concert
        3. June 6-8 - Guest staying in our trailer
        4. June 8 - Vegas!!!!!!!
        5. June 11th – Farmer’s 50th Birthday
        6. June 14th – Home & back to “normal” life

        Food
        Leftover Greek salad, roast beef, carrots, asparagus, coconut/chocolate/protein cube, Lindt Sea Salt Dark Chocolate, a tiny piece of strawberry rhubarb pie with a small scoop of Carmel Carmel Cup ice cream

        Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes

        Off Plan Eating: the pie and ice cream…

        Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
        Nope, although I did get my trailer ready for my guest

        Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
        Bed last night sometime after midnight, up at 9 this morning.

        Band Video, Dishes, Laundry.

        We pulled the trailer out of the barn, filled the water tank and tried the taps – we had a MAJOR leak! I hesitate to call it a leak, water was spraying everywhere under the sink! There was a 3” split in the water line! We just happen to know a guy that fixes trailers and we picked up the parts we needed. Trailer is now fixed, water works, and there is wine chilling in the fridge for my guest, who should arrive tomorrow afternoon.

        After supper we went out to the trailer park for a short visit with my parents. That’s where I had the pie and ice cream…

        Tonight's plan: finishing up the Band Video!


        I'm not packed, my house is a mess, and I still haven't figured out the video camera problem...

        And my Farmer still doesn't know about Vegas!


        I am SO behind in commenting on everyone’s journals!
        I am trying to keep up with reading them every now and then…
        Sorry…

        • Don't worry, life gets busy sometimes and it's not like you didn't warn us!

          The necklace you bought for your daughter is beautiful! I have jewellery envy.

          It's the 6th here already so Happy Birthday to your girl, I hope she has a terrific day.

                Fresh fruit salad, BBQ chicken thighs, Caesar salad, cucumbers & tomatoes, large BBQd mushrooms, one date square, a few strawberries.

                Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
                Off Plan Eating: the date square

                Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
                Nope

                Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain

                Bed last night sometime after midnight, I stayed up until the video was DONE!
                Up at 7 this morning. Transferred the video to a flash drive.

                My Sweet 16 Birthday Girl wore her new necklace to school today. I drove her in.

                I stopped at the school, found the missing CD and made sure the students could download the video on the school computer. I also made sure that my video would play there. Last minute talk with the students.

                Groceries, Dishes, Laundry, Cleaning, made fresh fruit salad.

                My special guests arrived at 1 pm. We had a really good visit, I would leave every now and then to throw laundry in, make a salad, get the chicken on the BBQ, get ready for the concert. At least tomorrow "all" I have to do is: return the cameras to the school and pack. I can spend more time visiting

                My daughter had an interview for a job at the local grocery store after school. She went to watch her team play soccer after supper. My Farmer and my parents went to the concert.

                We ate early and I left to set up for the concert (at 5:30). I was in charge of the 3 students who were doing lighting, audio and recording video. I also had to set up the video projector and computer for the video (representing the 20 years of the band), which played during a piece we had commissioned for the concert. The composer was there. I wore flat shoes and changed into my “2 hour” shoes for the concert. I switched back to the flats for clean up

                It was a great concert. I don’t think anyone heard my mistakes
                The video played without any problems. The students did a great job taping (I think so, I haven’t looked at the footage yet) I was acknowledged as the only original member still in the band.

                I brought home one of the helium star balloons “sprays” for my daughter’s birthday. My parents came to visit after the concert. I’ve just finished transferring the video, I’m gonna post this and then go to bed.

                I have a LOT of packing to do tomorrow!!!

                The Farmer STILL doesn’t know!!!!!!!

                  Remember, you're only going for a few days, you don't need 14 shirts.

                  I can't believe you've managed to keep the secret, that is pretty awesome! I can't wait to hear about his reaction.

                      Avoided. I said NO to ice cream at the lake!

                      Move Slowly, Lift Heavy, Sprint
                      nope

                      Sleep, Sun, Play, and Use Your Brain
                      Bed last night around 11:30, up at 6 to a terrific thunderstorm with hail! I was worried about my guest sleeping in the trailer, she was OK, she told me later that she liked the sound of the rain, thunder and hail…

                      I returned the cameras to the school. Then I alternated visiting with my guest and packing.

                      My Farmer came home at noon and I told him I needed to use his truck tomorrow and I needed him to clean out the stuff in the back.
                      He said he needed the truck tomorrow because he was pouring concrete!!! I said “You can’t pour concrete tomorrow”
                      “Why not?” After trying for a few minutes to convince him I decided it was time.
                      The kids were in the room and I said “I guess I gotta tell him.” They were all smiles.
                      “Because you are going to be out of the country”
                      Shock and silence.
                      “Where am I going?”
                      “Vegas” The look on his face was priceless!!
                      He said “You got me”
                      I NEVER can surprise him, he ALWAYS guesses!
                      He thought we might be going to Collingwood to a timeshare presentation weekend

                      He’s glad I told him at noon. He took care of a few things.
                      He’s pretty excited

                      The afternoon was spent visiting and packing.

                      After supper I took my guest for a walk down at the beach. We ended up at the booth, my mom offered ice cream and I said no ‘cause I was gonna be eating enough for the next 5 days.

                      I’m done packing! I feel like I’ve forgotten something. I don’t think I’ve brought enough “stuff” we only have a medium sized bag and two carry ons…

                      Bed time...it's 11:21 and I have to get up at 3!!

                      I'll be back sometime on Tuesday June 14!
