Things happened while I was away (no shit) . I had very limited internet access and basically no TV. I’m bummed I missed a few NBA playoff games. But I had a great, relaxing time at the cabin. My dog was awesome!! He was perfectly behaved. We had a blast. My right leg is still sore either from the dancing or all the walking.
This is the area near the cabin where I spent most of my time walking:
The one bedroom cabin I stayed in. A female slave used to live here:
We (my dog and I) went to the beach two mornings. We were there alone on Friday for over an hour. On Thursday there was another family there but most of the time it was just us. I love non-peak season!
Here is a pic of the bedroom. I didn’t sleep one night in there. I slept on the sofa in the living room.
I went on a tour of the mansion on the property. AWKWARD. All of my social situations are awkward but how am I supposed to know what requires talking and what doesn’t? It could have been worse. I could have been the only person there. Luckily I saw another family coming and I said, “Someone else is here”. We waited for them so I wouldn’t have to be alone. I could tell the tour guide was a talker and I was getting anxious. I don’t know. All of my social interactions are cringe worthy moments. I’ll just leave it at that. Oh, the mansion was nice but I thought we would be able to see more. The tour guide knew everything about the owners. Nice history lesson.
Great time. I’m glad to be back though.
Nutrisystem update: I’m not supposed to weigh myself until Monday to see how much I’ve lost in 7 days. But I sneaked on the scale today. I’ve lost about 2 and 1/2 pounds. I’ll see the real number on Monday morning. This is a pic of a typical NS dinner. It is NS vegetable lasagna (very good) and my broccoli. I’m eating broccoli everyday for dinner. I hope I don’t get sick of it.
I pretty much love all the pasta dishes. Shocking. I’m going to miss NS food but not the sodium. I’m not drinking enough water. I think I would have lost 4-5 pounds if I drank even just 4 glasses of water a day but ugh, I hate plain water. I ran out of sparkling water and the Dasani drops don’t really do it for me. I suck at drinking water. Always have.
I got a very special gift for my birthday:
I don’t want to read it. I cried for days after Stuart Scott passed. How will I ever get through this book? Right now I have 2 library books to read so I can’t touch this book. I admire that man so much. 😦
