Hi Jac! Thanks for stopping by! My paternal Grandfather emigrated to the U.S. about 1900 from Ireland, I've been back twice now, but not to trace my roots or anything, either for business or holiday. One day I hope to go back with my sons and do some Ancestral searching.
In other news...
Today is another travel day, which will include lunch, so I am skipping breakfast. Among the conventional admonitions about skipping breakfast is that it will cause you to overeat in subsequent meals. Maybe this is true for some people, but not really for me. My problem is that with the IF I didn't eat enough in later meals. So lunch is likely to be a big salad with whatever meat I can get on it. I will try to have just one beer. My travel partner for this trip is a big drinker. I can't keep up, but I can offer to drive which lets me off of the hook.
Last night SWMBO and boy met me after work for a swim at the beach, it was lovely. We are all fair skinned so we avoid the beach during the day. But the beach at 5:00 in the afternoon is wonderful, it is still warm and sunny, but with the golden hues of evening. The beach we go to is at state park and is quite large, by Connecticut standards. It was amazing how crowded it was even so late. SWMBO had packed me a bathing suit and the one she grabbed was one of my "skinny" suits. I didn't think it was going to fit but surprisingly, it did!
So despite my not losing pounds at a blistering pace, stuff is moving around! I've lost an inch around my waist in the past three weeks, so that is good!
Later: At work now. Somebody brought in a big coffee cake this AM and I am glad I am leaving soon so I don't have to sit in the adjacent office and listen to it whispering to me. Fortunately by the time I get back this afternoon it will be just a memory.
