This year we again traveled to the Outer Banks with my mom to see my sister's and brother's families. We spent 8 days on the road and it was a lot of fun. I saw two movies (woohoo!) and maintained faithfulness to my 500 calorie/day pre-surgery "liver shrinking" liquid diet (not as bad as I'd imagined). Seeing my kids have a blast with their cousins (on my side) was the best part.
