Currently in flight to Kansas City. We were pretty bummed that Nashville didn’t have a free Wi-Fi connection…we have our fingers crossed for KN. As it is, we’re not sure if we’re going to make it but we are taking deep breaths and thinking about pink clouds and butterflies. (It’s not working.) In other news, I am very happy to be heading home (and for more reasons than that I’ll be able to...

Wow…it is so hard to believe that today is the last day of this week and a half in Tennessee. Tomorrow we fly home and I am really looking forward to getting back into “normal” life. At the same time, I’m just a touch apprehensive because I know that “normal” life is really going to look like lots and lots of wedding preparation and everything that goes along with that. I have a lot to think...

Out of 12 girls, 6 have now come down with the flu bug. We are among the last standing and we intend to keep it that way! ;-) In all seriousness, I don’t think it’s likely we will catch it simply because we’ve been spending all of our free time outside in the fresh air and have also been eating as much fresh produce versus processed foods as we can. Just this morning, for example, we have...

Greetings and salutations! Tonight is the time change so I am all set for that. What I am not set for is coming down with the stomach flu which a few people around here have been doing. :-/ Hopefully the effort to eat lots of fresh produce plus walk outside at every opportunity will help to ward off any potential bug that is floating around. So far we have had 4 succumb to it and we’ll see...

Not quite so exhausted today thankfully. :-) I think mostly it’s because they served meat at a meal today for the first time this week! I’m kind of thinking the people who manage this place lean more towards a vegetarian diet (or at least carbohydrate rather than protein/nutrient-heavy), which is not the way we personally are used to eating at all. So right now we both are very thankful for...

8:37AM (Central Time) Thankfully I slept way better last night than the night before. I even gave the pillow a second chance and found that I could handle it okay. After all, it probably isn’t as hard as the rock Jacob used… ;-) I think I’ve adjusted pretty well to the time change by now. It’s actually pretty funny to think that at home it’s only 6:37AM right now. We had two hour long sessions...

Didn’t get much sleep last night. I don’t think I actually started getting some real rest until about 5:45AM (Central Time). The bed itself wasn’t terrible but my pillow felt like a hard block of Styrofoam. I ended up ditching it after less than 5 minutes and “slept” pillow-less for the night. In addition, the walls have pretty much no sound proofing and the door has a large crack under it that...

Feeling jet-lagged. Bleh…we flew for about 8 hours and even though I was sitting down the whole day I feel head-achy and tired. The room here at the Nashville Training Center is comfortable. However, we are not allowed to have Internet for the whole of our stay! Aughhh! Not sure if I can live through this… ;-) The Center is huge…it is an old hospital with six floors (not counting the...
