We're a day delayed in our trip to California but for good reason ...I was sick :(  I woke up 4 days ago with a huge headache and swollen cheeks. When I sat up in bed, I had lots of drainage and a cough. yuck! I'm pretty sure it's a sinus infection, and I've been taking sudafed for it, which seems to be helping. I'm just praying all of the symptoms go away soon, as the headaches seem to be the last thing holding on for dear life, and you really can't get much done when you have one of those.

 I haven't lost a single pound this week, but lost 3 last week. I hate the ups and downs of trying to loose weight this time around. I'm convinced I need to get my thyroid checked out. Which leads me to the fact that I would get it checked out if I had medical insurance.  We're between coverages right now, and haven't decided which new group to go with. Lets pray and hope neither one of us needs anything major in the form of medical in the next 30 days!

I still haven't seen a "real" summer. Oregon has the funkiest weather this year, and I just cannot wrap my brain around it.  It will be beautiful and sunny outside and stay around 65 and then within minutes the whole sky will go dark gray and then it's 75 degrees. It makes NO sense. But I guess that's the Oregon weather rule of thumb. You go 10 minutes or 10 miles and the weather is different.

On our trip to California I'm really trying to squeeze in some "fun". We don't really have a budget to do any overnights or anything, but we can do a few day trips. I'm thinking about the water park, possibly an amusement park, or a picnic at the beach or even just heading over to San Francisco. Either way, with all the hard work that has already happened and the even harder work that's approaching, I think we need to treat ourselves to something fun...We'll chop it up to *encouragement* to keep moving forward.

I made a hair appointment with my favorite hair lady. I just got my hair done a few weeks ago with a salon that I found on and she messed it up! It wasn't a horrible mess up, but I went in for a root touch up and she ended up bleaching ALL of my hair. In fear of having my hair fall out, I've been deep conditioning it every night, putting a hair masque on once a week and not blow drying or straightening it as much. It seems to be in pretty good condition, for just having a ton of chemical put on it 3 short weeks ago, but alas it needs to be fixed!

That about sums up everything going on! I wont have very much internet access in California, so I'll probably just do a recap post when we get home sometime around the 6th of July!
