Vacation Time

On Sunday we are piling into our car, Griswold style, (including Lucy) and driving up to the Oregon coast where my parents rented a beach house. My brother, sister-in-law, niece and their dog will also be there with my parents and their dog. We will be staying for 4 or 5 nights (I haven't decided yet). The days will be filled with walking on the beach, relaxing, reading books and magazines, exploring the village and taking naps. Of course we will polish of the evenings with campfires and S'More making. Family friends from Montana will be staying with us for two of the nights, so it will be fun and loud house, that is for sure. I am not looking forward to the drive, but I am looking forward to relaxing for several days. I know once we get back, time is just going to fly by and the next thing you know it will be September!

Went and did my blood glucose screening this morning. It was barely as bad as I heard it was supposed to be. All I had to do was drink a little bottle of something that tasted like really sweet orange Gatorade and wait for an hour to get my blood drawn. I just sat in the waiting room reading my book while stealing looks across the parking lot at Donut Hut. I did not give in and squash my craving for donuts, but stayed strong and went on my way to work where I had by unsweetened oatmeal with bananas.

When I did the glucose test, I had to drive home afterward...and I was FIGHTING to stay awake! I hadn't had that much sugar at once since I was a kid and apparently I was crashing. I went home and slept. :)
