     What a great weekend! Thanks Gayle for the tickets. 
     I didn't record the food, activities and snacks for the weekend. All I wanted to do was enjoy a quiet, stress-free weekend with Liz. We read together on the couch, walked around the park, toured some of the city, went to the Olive Garden Saturday night with Al after three rousing rounds of Scrabble. We attended my new favorite church in El Paso on Sunday morning, then enjoyed a last lunch with Al at Appleby's and then Al was off towards Arizona, Utah and Colorado.
     It was all over too soon. And now back to 30 Days to Better. More weight to lose, more reading to do and considerably more writing to do. The Fish and Chips at Appleby's did me in. I was sick all Sunday night. I ended up sleeping most of the day today. The good news is that I am beginning to feel almost normal. My weight didn't suffer too much over the weekend and between naps, I caught up on my reading. Tomorrow I attack the writing.

     My overall grade for today: INC - sent to the principle's office for napping.

     How did you do?        


  1. I'm so glad Liz was able to come and spend a little time with you...good golly John...she is gorgeous isn't she? I just LOVE her!!!! :)
