I have to warn you, this is going to be a long post.
The California Commendation Medal is what I got this weekend. It was a nice thing to recieve and the adjutant general presented it. I also got a coin from a 2 star general and a couple other coins from the base commander and the command master sargeant. Confused some? Sorry, this is all military speak. Coins are kind of a big deal in the military and to get the ones that I got it is pretty tough. The medal is also something that a lot of military members don't have. My dh was really excited that I got all that.
Alcohol. Yep, drank some of that this weekend. And, considering how I felt, it amazes me I still walked away with about 15 of my flex points in tact. I knew I would be drinking so I kept my points low and then we all went to dinner. In fact, I had to take care of the drunk girls who were puking.
Then, when I got home I had to take care of puking 2 1/2 yr. old. Oh, yeah. Fun times. He got sick just as he woke up from his nap...about 20 minutes after I got home and he didn't stop puking until about 3 hours after that. He woke up 2 times last night and puked some more. All I can say is thank god I have a cast iron stomach. He seems to be doing better now so that is good.
Okay, so I did not actually exercise this weekend. At least, not in the formal sense. The hotel we were at was huge and there was a lot of running around between sessions. Also, when we went out on Saturday night we went to the promenade in Santa Monica. Remember those drunk people I told you about? Well, I had to chase them up and down the road for about 2 hours until we got them all back safely to the hotel. So, I did get in my share. If you saw my WWI post, you will see that I am down! Woot! I guess the planning worked.
Thanks for all the happy thoughts.
Whew, if you made it this far, you rock!
