2 years ago we picked up the RV from Charlotte RV Center in Port Charlotte, Florida.  Who would have thought that 2 years later here we are in Charlotte, NC.  Hmmmmmmm.  It was on this day 2 years ago that we also tried getting the BMW up on a trailer.  Our friends Mike and Dave accompanied us.  Here’s their comment from that day:


Sorry to go all two-years-ago-we-did-this crap with you but it was such a life changing event.  The finality of receiving the RV.  The tow trailer not working out ended up being a wonderful situation.  Because of that, we bought a Jeep and had so many great off-roading adventures.

Let’s get the photo of me over with.  I’ve had 2 requests (Jodi & Peggy) to see what the new me is looking like.


I’m very pleased with the results.  I still have a little gut and some back fat to get rid of.  I’m wearing a smaller polo shirt too.  While in DC I wore (below) a large pink polo.

I went to BJ’s today.  I wanted to pick up a quart of deodorant.  This is why I shop at BJ’s because they make it so darn easy to compare odd measurements.  Check out the unit pricing in the lower left corner.  I know I’ve bitched about this before.


So, I went to the gym a little earlier today so that in addition to cardio I could do some core (abs) and chest/back stuff.  I TRIED core.  I could barely do 15 crunches.  The pain was horrifying and my body went into wet noodle mode.  I just couldn’t even sit up anymore.  I moved on to chest/back and worked out until exhaustion.  I still had time left over waiting for Jim so I did some leg work too.  I don’t even look forward to tomorrow’s pain in so many different places.

Here’s my usual list.  I’m only logging my cardio stuff.  It’s just too difficult to log in each exercise.


DIH - Hollywood We made it to Georgia in one day’s drive.  We’ll get the fridge fixed and then move on to Unadilla, GA.  Read about it here.


  1. Maybe you should get a new pet and name it Charlotte.

    Thanks for your humor on my blog the past few days- it's been very much appreciated. :)

  2. OMG! You are looking so stunning.

  3. @Liz: When these pets are gone - they're gone. Kinda like a used car deal.

    @Charlene: Thanks!

  4. You look so effing hot, Garret. C'mon over to the other side...

    PS: LOVE love love the photo of you eavesdropping over the statue's shoulder in DC. That's a classic!
