    Yes, I had a lovely time with my family, and yes, it tired me out completely. I fell off the grid altogether really. I'm sorry for not nipping in to let you know I was okay, but I get this stupid idea that if I come in, I have to catch up on everybody, and I just didn't have the energy for it.

    Still and all, other than being tired and still having a lot to catch up both in the house and online, things are not too bad. I gained weight over Christmas, but have more or less taken it back off again, and am ready to look for new lows. I completely fell off the exercise wagon, but have got in a little walking over the last few days. One day probably too much, and knocked myself backwards again. Oh well.

    For the first time in years, everybody in the entire extended family was in one place at one (actually two) time, so we took family portraits. This was my eldest son's gift to the family. He has a high-falutin' camera, with a new gizmo on it that enables him to control it from his iPhone, so he could stand with the family, check the photo on his screen, and activate the shutter too. There were 23 or 24 of us in the picture, I will have to count. Ages ranged from 7 months to 84 years. This was a very precious thing, because the great-grandparents are getting fragile, and getting everybody together is always a challenge. It will probably never happen again.

    I will try to get around to everybody's journals over the next day or two or three, but I've really got to go tackle some of the backlog around here. It will go slowly, because I still don't have all my energy back. Oh well.
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

                      You don't have to do that. We understand. Sometimes it's all I can do to make my post. Other times I read, but don't comment.

                      The family photo sounds wonderful!

                      • things have been so darn busy in the journals I have a hard time catching up on a day to day basis! If I miss a day I just have to jump in at the end and miss out on all the rest! I'm not commenting much these days either. Sometimes I feel like I just don't have anything to offer..............
