Live from Savannah

Yeah, we brought the laptop. Free wi-fi! We brought DVDs and have all the links to what we want to do this weekend, so it really is quite handy to have. Rob is napping, I did my nails and just poured myself an ice cold glass of Chard. Yes, it truly feels like we're on holiday. Only it's very different this time. Anyone who says that being obese and out of shape doesn't interfere with their quality of life is a big, fat liar.

When we first arrived, our room wasn't quite ready so we gave the girl Rob's cell number and set out for a walk down on River Street. I tackled a long set of very steep and bumpy concrete stairs from the street level down to the river. Without a second thought! My husband was agog when we reached the bottom. We walked up and down the river street and sat on a bench but not because I was out of breath, not because my knees and ankles hurt but to people watch for a spell. On the way back to the hotel, we walked hand in hand and Rob noticed that he didn't have to slow his pace to make sure I could keep up. How awful it must have been for him to drag me along with my huffing and puffing and trying to keep up. We're on the third floor of the hotel and we've been taking the stairs. We've been here 4 hours and already it's unlike any other trip we've ever taken. Who am I and what did I do with Girlie?
