On the way to...

Gus and I drove up that nine hour long ribbon of highway to spend the holidays with Sean and his girls in the great Pacific Northwest.  
Sean is busy working to provide for his girls. I'm here to take care of the homefront, as the youngest recovers from surgeries on both her hips and legs.  This means full leg casts, this means granny is doing a bit of lifting. An eight year old can test your mettle any day, add in full leg casts and you know what I'm up against.  Last night as I was lifting the girl with the hot pink casts into bed...her sister said, with awe in her voice..."Granny you are going to be sooo buff when this is all over"...

  4. Make sure you lift correctly. Make sure you do some yoga to stretch those buff muscles. Make sure you take a photo of all that buffness for your readers!
