Oh.my.goodness. We are FINALLY home after a lovely 12 1/2 hours in the car today throughout the worst weather and a couple “detours” throughout cities along the way (in the way of getting lost). I am totally and completely pooped and don’t even want to think that tomorrow night at this time I will be in school. How is it possible that I am tired after a vacation?! I’m starting to feel a little bit better (of course right when I get home) but I’m still very very stuffy and have a low grade fever. After this post I am going to get in the shower, put on my pjs and take 2 tylonel cold. What a whirlwind couple days! I told Ryan that next time I will pay for us to get plane tickets to fly into Atlanta and drive with Trisha and Jason (Ryan’s cousin and his wife). Craziness!
Last night for dinner we all had one big last dinner together at the club….it was nice but I felt so terrible that I ended up just sipping on tea the whole time. All the girls were drinking this really fun drink called a “woowoo” (fun to say, eh?)—its a mixture of vodka, peach schnapps and cranberry juice. I wanted one because all the other girls got one but I took one sip and knew my body was not in any shape for alcohol. Then, I tried a glass of red wine at dinner and had the same effect….so finally Ryan just ordered me a pot of herbal tea while everyone else had fun cocktails . The tea hit the spot though…
Here’s a picture of all us Whittemore girls (well, I’m not a whittemore girl…..yet. haha Ryan’s cousin’s wife, me, Erin, Grandma Dot, Ryan’s mom and his aunt. All with our woowoos. Check out my shoes. They are the pride of my life.
Dinner was a huge buffet. I felt gross and didn’t know what I wanted to eat so I loaded my plate with everything but hardly ate anything. Hate that! I only ate the mussels/clams and the sweet potatoes from this plate. I decided they were pretty good though and went up for more, with a piece of soft bread. I got the corn but didn’t eat it. Then, I grabbed two small pieces of chocolate cupcake for dessert. Ahh, the strange things you crave when you are sick.
This morning we rushed to get out of the cabin early. I made a quick 1.5 packets of HempPlus oatmeal with blueberries and took coffee for the road.
We stopped around 1:30 for lunch outside of Columbia. I got a 6 inch subway chicken breast sandwich on honey oat with honey mustard, provolone cheese and tons of veggies. Also, they had these totally yummy “veggie” chips.
I drove through the worst rainstorm of my life. Everyone basically was pulling over and my knuckles were white from grasping the steering wheel. I hate that!!!!! And, for some reason I was totally craving a McDonald’s vanilla cone. It was really really really really good.
We stopped at Pita Pit for dinner and I just got a hummus pita with veggies, hot sauce and a sprinkle of feta.
NO MORE FOOD!!!! I am stuffed, bloated and feel the need to detox. The thought of wine makes me want to gag, as does bbq. I think this week coming up I will focus on working out (hopefully tomorrow I will feel better finally!!), fresh produce and light meals. Not a diet really but after a weekend of eating whatever you want, whenever you want, any girl feels the need to tone back up.
I am hitting the sack!!! back to normal blogging schedule and life in general tomorrow!
