Back to life, Back to reality!

Well, I've made it through all of the agonizing trips (and phone calls) for my dad, and the High School reunion. I'm more than exhausted, but ready to kick off the new season by getting back in shape and on a roll again.
I'm checking out my local Turbo classes, and gearing up for a little (slow) weight-lifting. Noticed the arms are getting a little soft, so I'm ready to get working again!
I have a pretty tight schedule coming up - lots of work and house-guests, so I have it all planned out to fit my needs first. I hope I won't have to travel up north anytime soon now that my dad is a little more settled. He is just in the waiting game now - because of his age there really isn't a whole lot that they can do but make him comfortable. I am working on getting him moved down here so that I can be closer to help him out - we'll see... His pain is still there, but more manageable now. A lot less discomfort, so I am grateful for that!
The reunion was a blast!! All of my hard work paid off and it was a great night. I reconnected with so many old friends, even ones from college afterwards. I just love Facebook and how it keeps us all connected now!
I was SO hot in this pic! The AC died while I was setting up & my makeup melted off - lol! I was also not used to the heat of the Central Valley after being away for 4 years (I think it got to around 105 that weekend!)
Thanks to ALL OF YOU who have sent me such kind notes and have checked in with me these past few weeks! It means the world to me to have such amazing support, and I hope to return the favor to you! I'm SO READY to get back into my weight-loss groups here on Spark and enjoy some friendly competition again - BRING IT ON! :)
