I Am Glad 2 B Moving

Feb 18, 2010 - Thursday
We are in Los Barriles BCS Mexico and leaving tomorrow for La Paz. Our time here has been okay...nice place, great clean beaches, windy, & sunny. This is the place all the wind and Kite surfers come to catch the best wind and waves (Small waves).

I am glad to be moving - just worried about money as I always do. This, that and they need to be paid and we nerve have the money all the time.Today John and I will be working to loose weight together Rachel = 145lb & John = 291 lb. We have to drop 75 lb btw the two of us. John will get a "special" treat for every 10 lb he looses. And will get the treat so long as he maintains his gold weight 230 lb. I will get some new clothes as the others will not fit any longer.

Congrats Griffin!

My (Rachel's) nephew Griffin swam a 3A North Carolina State High School Championship on Friday Feb 1, 2010.

Griffin took a 6th in the 100 back, a 15th in 200 IM, and the two relays - 200 medley relay (2d) and 400 free relay (4th).He did so awesome.  He also had best ever times in his 2 indivdiual events.  And in the 100 back and his 2 relays they AGAIN broke their own school records.
Way to go Griffin!
