Not much to report over here. Isla and I have been enjoying time home with family and the slowed pace has been incredible for me. I have been catching up on lost zzzz's by sleeping in past 6am and, metaphorically speaking, we've gone from a crazy Kenyan five minute mile to a more manageable "weekend jogger" ten. I actually hopped on the scale yesterday out of curiosity and, much to my surprise, I have lost ten pounds since moving to Florida. Ten pounds! I now weigh less than I did before I had Isla which is crazy. I don't write that to pat myself on the back, make enemies of my fellow women or brag about ten pounds lost, but to reiterate just how crazy busy we have been down there in the sunshine state. Lugging around a seventeen pound baby while running at a mile a minute does a body good, I guess.
This little break up North has been so nice, like a big, fat SIGH... but it is only that, a break. The frenetic pace will return in January when Scott returns and we begin to prep the boat to leave the USA... for good. It's going to be hectic, for sure, but it will all be worth it when I am posting bloggy blogs from the beauty of the Exuma Islands again!
So yeah, it's nice to be home. Despite the fact that it's the holidays and historically a pretty hectic time of year, it's smooth sailin' over here and the calm before for the (awesome Bahamian tropical sunshine) storm for us!
