    I will say, the High Five is very good to look at. Not only all the swoopy curves, but the coloring of the different supports, and the surface decorations are very attractive.

    But it is so HIGH!

    I just googled it. Beautiful interchange. Coming from an area where most complicated interchange is a clover-leaf, I am overwhelmed by the idea of trying to navigate that...

    Need more water!

    Tomi-yikes! Hope that's not too often.

    Yesterday:

    Up at 6:00
    Weight:209.0

    11:30 shakshuka with
    2 eggs
    1 bratwurst
    1/2 avocado

    2:00 apples and cranberries with cream
    liverwurst
    way too much trail mix (primal, though!)
    2 fried bananas

    8:00 bite of steak
    1C plain yogurt

    7 water (again!)
    140 minutes walking

    Bed at 10:00

    Had the raging munchies in the middle of the day, and went crazy with the trail mix. What is up with that?!? Also went a little crazy with the walking. There was 30 minutes more than noted, of moving at a super-slow speed in the stores, so I left that out. Otherwise, almost three hours worth! There will be more biking today, than walking, 'cause I have to go to the far store again (no chicken necks!), and I don't want to walk it twice in a row.

    Littlest got sick last night with what Middlest and I had (stomach thing). Poor girl. She woke up every few hours during the night, but nothing too violent. Right now she is snuggled up on the couch watching 'Legally Blonde'. We love it. Go, Elle!

    My kitchen is looking great this morning. One of the places I stopped at yesterday was Aldi: 6 pomegranates for 1.98, and they are glistening in my fruit bowl on an otherwise clear counter. It looks great!

    I'm thinking about Pebbles, wondering how she is doing. On her way to work by now. I sure hope her day goes better than yesterday. Very frustrating not to be able to reach through the internet and DO something. Like maybe give that husband a shake by the scruff of his neck. I'm thinking their fight is what set her binge off. Didn't want to say that in her journal, as he might be reading it. Hope it is okay for me to say it here, Pebbles. If not, just tell me, and I'll delete. But, grrrr. I know there are always two people in a marriage, and we take Pebbles side because she's our gal, but grrrr. It sounds to me like he is not dealing with his issues, and is taking them out on her. And talk about the pressure of your spouse telling you he thinks you might leave because you are looking and feeling better. The insult of your character PLUS the blackmail to make yourself fat and sick. A double whammy. I don't like this! Don't mess with Pebbles! She's rockin' awesome, and should be worshipped, not fought with. Again, grrrr.

    How bout this bridge... it is SOOOO narrow that the speed limit is 50.

    Here's a shot of how narrow it is:

    Craziness. I do NOT drive that bridge if it's even remotely cold/wet out. It freezes sooo quickly! There has been a crew on it all summer repainting the steel. That makes it even more scary to drive across. I get to drive across it twice today when I go to see Dr. Lake for a spinal adjustment and ART.

    They are planning to replace it with this (but that probably won't happen for another 5-10 years b/c this baby is expensive! Like in the mid-double digit millions):

    That will be beautiful. We just got a new 'landmark' bridge in Dallas- the Margaret Hunt over the Trinity. Every time I get a glimpse of it I admire its beautiful lines. I haven't driven over it yet, and it doesn't look that high, so I imagine I won't have any problems enjoying it when I do go. I don't have the typical problem of nervousness over running water, so bridges I usually like- unless they are ridiculously high. I mean...just make the boats shorter! Right?

    Still thinking about Pebbles. She is really on my mind this morning. Trying to send positive brain waves her way.

    That last one looks like the Margaret Hunt- Hill bridge crossing the Trinity in Dallas, Jenn. I have yet to be across that one, though.

    I don't do traffic very well never mind at heights like that! I would be shaking in my boots and trying not to puke on the steering wheel! I always feel as though I am being sucked over the edge of whatever height I am on - very weird sensation. Proud of you for going on that more than once - esp after getting stuck on there for a while!
