I was in Egypt in 1999. Also was in Kenya/Tanzania. It was my honeymoon - pyramids/Cairo, 10 day safari in Kenya/Tanzania and then a cruise down the Nile stopping at ruins. Yep, a wonderful trip. Will always remember it as so. We were gone for 3 weeks!

Home from the party. Wanted to stay but knew if I did I'd start drinking/eating. I stuck to my goal of 2 glasses of wine over 4 hours and protein snacks. (Luckily there was plenty - shrimp cocktail and plain grilled wings and cheese.) I indulged in literally 2 bites of a 7 layer bar. The person I was talking to said, "You're actually cutting that small piece in half?" Yes, I did. And 2 bites was plenty. I savored each bite. There were a lot of other yummy looking things, but I did it! So happy with myself!

Jen - that was some honeymoon!!! Great locations!!!!

And good for you staying good at the party!!! That is awesome!!!!

I tried cross stitching again tonight. I think I really need to go to the eye doctor. I'm having such trouble. I think I need to bring my Ott light out of the craft room when I work on stitching, too.

That's the way to do it. Decide in advance. It is so easy to get to talking and forget how much you have eaten or had to drink. Good for you Jen! Good advice for me!

Have had Lyme twice and now my daughter was just diagnosed. The quicker it is treated, the better.

Cute chuckle...

The math teacher saw that little Johnny wasn't paying attention in class. She called on him and said, "Johnny!?
What are 2, 4, 8 and 10?" Little Johnny quickly replied, "NBC, CBS, HBO, and the Cartoon Network!"

Caterina- Love the chuckle
jen and hedgie- I have wonderful deer that roam and eat in my yard. My neighbor was just diagnosed with Lyme disease.
Linda- I hope the dr can figure out what is going on with your gastrointestinal issues.
