    Glad you're enjoying it.
    Jamaica was great!

      S2C=140

      Use Your Brain, Move & Lift, Avoid Poisons & Stupid Mistakes
      Umm...I woke up at 7:30 AND I STAYED UP! I know!
      However I then wasted the morning watching old b&w Irish themed movies
      I packed my overnight bag (that was bursting at the seams ) and a small cooler, and gave the Butterflies a quick foot and belly bath 'cause my Farmer took them out to "play" in the garden, and then I went to my friend's house for a "Girl's night".

      There were four of us. We sat outside for a while, enjoying the sun, I had a couple NorCal Margaritas, and they had peach schnapps and cranberry juice. Then we went inside and had "mini" pedicures complete with hot wax dips. I made the zucchini/feta/sundried tomato "boats" for a snack. More drinking and talking. We had chicken tetrazinni for supper (my friend made me some without noodles - but I think there was still flour in the sauce...later in the evening my stomach agreed) and cupcakes - I did NOT have a cupcake! I think I may have said "Why would I want one of those" and my friends gave me weird looks - the cupcakes were HUGE and the icing was piled on at least 1" thick! I'd switched to red wine before supper, and we had a glass of ice wine after supper. More drinking, and dancing. I made a home made batch of Chai, but my one friend was "too far gone" to drink it. She crashed about 11, (her house) we stayed up talking for another hour before going to bed too.

      When I woke up at 9:30, two of my friends were gone and the hostess was still sleeping, so I packed up my stuff and came home, where I laid on the couch and watched "My Best Friend's Wedding".

      No ESL AQ work was done on Saturday.

      • What a fantastic way to spend time! Jealous

        What's a hot wax dip? Sounds painful.

          It was fun!

          Well, you dip your foot quickly into melted paraffin wax, it gets covered in a thin layer of wax, when it dries you dip it again and again, making a thicker layer. Then you wrap your foot in a plastic bag and leave it on for a few minutes. It peels off and your skin feels soft and smooth. We also did our hands

            Not a very productive day today. Some web surfing, attempted to work on my last assignment for this Module. Which is due tomorrow. I'm tired, but I know I'll be up until at least 11, trying to work on my ESL AQ.

              • A funny little CW moment from last night:
                My friend was talking about almond butter.
                Me: I love macadamia nut butter.
                Her reply: That's the worst kind of fat.
                Me:...

                        I'm glad I could help
                        I know you were wondering what you'd learn after your first year on this journey.
                        What did you think of my "Year in Review?"

                          I volunteered in ESL classrooms at a school in London.
                          After school I worked on my last assignment for the 4th Module (due Monday night at midnight).
                          After supper I went to band practice and played for 2 hours.
                          Then I finished up my assignment and posted it by 10pm! Then I made "meaningful comments" of the other student's posts...

                          Next Due Date: April 2

                            I RAN this morning! Well, I walked/ran. For 25 minutes!
                            Why?
                            Because I foolishly signed up for the 5K Run for Retina race again this year
                            April 15
                            Why?
                            Cause my sister asked me to...

                            Then I went into London and volunteered at the high school with the ESL students.
                            After supper I took the Butterflies into town and we walked around for an hour.

                            I did some reading for my ESL AQ tonight.

                            I also had about 6 Cadbury Mini Eggs...
                            so then I did 20 squats...

                              • yoo hoo... its me!!!!!!!!!! Nice to know I've been missed. I'm going to get around to a bit of a catchup on everyone.

                                I had a laugh about the farmers truck in the river...
                                I also totally related to the term 'cyberloafing'. I dont get to do that anymore which is why you're not hearing much from me lately.

                                And as for the 5k run again, I'm impressed. I need to get off my arse.

                                There is more I was going to comment on but I've already forgotten. oh yes, totally would be jealous if you and Greenspout caught up without me!

                                Ok I'm going to go and do a long update in my completely lonely and forgotten journal. Nice to see you are still here.
