Hide the S’mores Please!!!!
Tuesday, July 07, 2009
I will be MIA for roughly 2-3 days. Ok maybe we should say 4 days…. Once I get off work this morning, I will be packing my heart out and getting to bed sometime this evening. I don’t know if I will be showing my face back on here or not until after I return….
Wednesday my family and I are head for Maquoketa Caves. We’ve never been before, but from what I’ve heard I believe we are in for a huge workout. We plan to explore all the caves plus see the other sites in a day and a half…. There are a dozen caves and 3 or more sights that I am aware of from my research.
We plan to drive back Friday morning, since Jen and I have to work overnights Friday night…. Provided I don’t get stuck in a cave or fall off some really high spot (I’m just a little claustrophobic and really scared of heights) I plan while I’m at work that night to tell everyone all about it and bring pictures.
I just hope Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday is enough time!
I do plan to take a notebook to write down everything I opt to eat or drink…. I hope I get it right since I won’t have my computer to officially track everything and do it throughout the day too. I know I’m not going to be holding fast to my 1550 max calorie limit because I will be a lot more active than usual but I just hope I don’t really blow it. I’m taking lots of veggies that I can eat cold which is new this year…. Last year, there would be no sight of a vegetable at any camping or picnic thing for my family… well unless you count mustered potato salad and 260 calories for ½ cup…
Now, will someone please convince my family we don’t need S’mores; the marshmallows and chocolate will be the death of me….
Oh boy am I in trouble…….
Here goes nothing… well ok hopefully something. I can do this, right?
I think I can; I think I can; I think I can; I think I can; I think I can; I think I can........
