Vacation round-up

Written by triangelmom on 10/3/2010 8:52 AM | COMMENTS (5)

As I sit here in the Philadelphia airport, waiting for our flight back to Cleveland, I am filled with so many thoughts and emotions about our family trip to Israel. We did a lot of running around, shopping and visiting with family and friends and doing touristy things. I have a few favorite memories -- climbing Masada and being in the front of the group and not feeling out of breath as I once did, an entertaining and memorable jeep ride through the Golan Heights and learning more about the history of the Yom Kippur War. I got to meet Bon, a "friend" from the Kosher Corner board who was also in Israel for the holidays. We spent an hour, getting to know one another and drinking coffee. I celebrated my 42nd birthday more than once -- my kids brought me balloons one night during a dinner out, I was surprised with a candle-lit dessert at another dinner out and I was the guest of honor at a dinner on my actual birthday with my husband, five kids, my in-laws (who were also visiting Israel over the holidays), our cousins from Rehovot and our cousins/hosts from Efrat. I had a week where I was off program but I got back on the wagon as a new week began and I am looking forward to continuing with this journey with regular, daily exercise and good eating choices.

    You had a wonderful vacation from the sounds of it, I'm glad you were able to celebrate your birthday, and that you are ready to resume the regular day to day needful things that moved you to the top of Masad not out of breath and enjoying life to the fullest!

    Welcome back. I am amazed how much you packed in during your stay in Eretz Yisroel. From your posts during the past weeks, its sounds like you did a fabulous job controlling your eating during the chagim.
