I'm Back...then I'm Gone

Today is a catch up day at work for me.
I also am making it a catch up day on the blog for me.

It's been a while, and I know I need to catch up on my writing.  The past two-three weeks has been crazy.  Sarah got healthy again, but then we had to make an emergency trip to Memphis, work is very busy right now and I feel like I am taking on the hours of our good friend who is an accountant.  Along with all of that I also have the "part time" job  with P90X-it's about 10 hours a week.  With all of that the blog has fallen lower and lower on the priority scale.  And coming up I will be headed to Guatemala City, Guatemala for 9 days on a mission trip with our college leaders.  I have no idea how or if I will be able to update you with everything that we will be doing there.  I will try though.

Measure Me Monday
I missed two Mondays now.  Last week we were driving to Memphis, TN to be with Sarah's family as they mourned the loss of Sarah's grandmother.  It was a great trip, and it had an added bonus of also meeting our new nephew Michael Cameron, or Baby Mikey for short.
For the workout it was great too.  I used a guest pass at the Germantown Athletic Club.  Nice facility with great work out equipment.  My diet was off-it is real hard for me when I travel-but kept up the exercise.  So, I did do the Measure Me Monday routine this past Monday and I had zero weight change but lost an inch and a half.  Nothing spectacular, but considering the week as a whole it is not surprising.  I have a new found motivation and will install it after my trip next week.  Looking forward to continuing the weight loss and lifestyle changes that have come from this P90X revolution.

Bro Time
My brother came into town this weekend while Sarah went down to be with her friends for a bridal shower weekend extravaganza.  I was really excited for Sarah, who hardly ever gets to see her friends or take time for herself.  She had a such a great time with some of her favorite people on the planet.
I loved having my brother in town.  It was fun for him to hang with the kids, and the kids loved having their Uncle Blake in town.  I did feel like an old man who is a fuddy duddy.  At night we just hung out at the house, but that comes with the territory I guess.  Hopefully I did not bore him too much and he will come back to see us soon.

Good to catch you up a bit and hopefully I will get this back into gear.
