election day, and other tales of woe...



Kathryn and I yesterday...at the Chinese buffet...the place I didn't want to go, but I let Camille choose where she wanted to go after the pool.


Jonathan with cousin Dani, Cam, and Char.

Here's the woe...the whole election. It's ridiculous. Yes, we want America to be great again. But insults and threats and such disrespect for women from one candidate...and the other, I don't even know where to start...she looked the other way while her husband philandered and flirted and lied...then she lied and lied and lied...the whole thing is so embarrassing and unbelievable...the only good thing is to rest assured that whoever ends up in that White House, God allowed it.

Also, speaking of woes, I am woefully out of shape. But I shall not give up hope! Swimming felt great yesterday, when I got out of bed this morning, I had that familiar after exercise muscle achy-ness, and it actually felt wonderful. Never mind that the scale was really mean to me. I shall not give up. My plan was to lose like fifty pounds before the wedding, but instead...I went the other way...I had a nice weekend in Virginia...and usually, I can get serious, and lose the extra few pounds...but...anyway...ha, I am getting more serious now. Remember, I am broken. If I gain a few pounds, it doesn't mean I was really bad, or that I binged big time...it just means I ate NORMALLY a few times, or for a few days in a row. My metabolism is shot...exercise, low carbs, no sugar...that's what I need to get there.

Here's the thing: I am excited. Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat. The wedding is in 32 days. We want to get the Christmas tree before the wedding, because the kids from far away will be here, and we are doing our Secret Santa gift exchange the day after the wedding.

We are knee deep in wedding plans. :)
