It's Saturday, which normally means a weigh in, but it was mutually decided that WE ARE ON VACATION !!!! Weigh in will happen next Saturday, and for the next five days we are officially on vacation. Does not mean we will go nuts, just means taking a break from all forms of routine life for a week.
I spent yesterday creating some trail mix and packing it into individual sized servings, in an attempt to kill the Vending Machine Monster. In the past, when we have made pit stops we often grab something out of the vending machine to munch on. Let's face it- long car rides can get really boring and munching is one way to pass the time and prevent from falling asleep. So packs of trail mix, a cooler with fruit and cheese sticks and bottled water will slay that beast. The plan for road food is to head for Walmart's on the way , as they have Subway in nearly all of them. Subway is not perfection, but a darned good alternative.
Now if I just remember to pack enough pairs of socks, I'll be good to go !
