Another year and another trip down to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I can't even remember what number this trip is. Justin, Shari, James and his friend Jordan arrive tomorrow, in Arizona.
Then Saturday, they all drive to the GC with John and meet up with some other hikers. Then down they go. John always wonders if this is the last year for him. I hope not. It's a wonderful challenge.
I on the other hand prefer to climb UP to the tops of mountains. OK, just one, Machu Pichu and one was enough for me.
Tomorrow, I start the next step on my personal journey and that's the DETOX portion. I hope to rid my body, over the weekend of the last of any chemicals from food and drink, maybe sugar and generally just give my body a break. I bought my fruits and vegetables today and have a nice big pot of homemade chicken soup simmering on the stove.
My daughter says she doesn't want to be around this weekend in case of any mood swings, on my part. I'm think she's over reacting. There hasn't been any, from the withdrawal, from diet soda, for two weeks. I find that rather amazing.
Riley is starting to rock when she is put on the floor, on her knees. I think she's going to start to crawl soon. She certainly is interested in moving around. Guess I'll have to show Mary where the vacuum is so she can keep the rug clean. Cleaner than I normally do.
The images, on TV of the devastation in Haiti bring tears to my eyes. Tomorrow, I shall drop by my local Red Cross, donate some blood and drop off a donation to help.
Speaking of donations, my local gym has a rather unique challenge going on, right now. When you sign up you have some options of how to participate, one is for every hour you work out the gym and their corporate sponsors will donate 10 POUNDS of food to Second Harvest, which oversees the food pantries for the city.
There is also another option and that is for every POUND you LOSE they will donate 10 POUNDS of food to Second Harvest.
I think it's a win/win situation. I'm going to see if I can sign up for both options.
