Night before last, I woke up with a terrible stomach ache...you know, the kind where you lay there and talk yourself out of throwing-up? I finally got the courage to get up and go to the medicine cabinet in search of some relief. As I opened the cabinet door and scanned my home pharmacy, I came to a sobering realization...bye, bye Tums, adios Motrin, ciao Flex-All for the month of February. I'll have to do some additional research, but I believe that in February my home pharmacy will consist of asprin and MAYBE pepto. Anyway, that night, I took a Tums or two and fell back asleep...grateful for the advances in over-the-counter medicine.
Yesterday morning, as I completed my morning ritual of getting on the bathroom scale, another thought came to mind...bathroom scales are probably out for Feb.. This could be one of the things that sticks after the project is complete.
I'm going to start to add some photos to this blog over the next few weeks - here's the first - a picture of Alex and I using Skype. In this photo, he is in Bahrain - 6900 miles away.
