The Day After

Well, we're home from Philmont. I slept in this morning and am slowly getting a handle on things to be done today.

First, the good news: I weighed in this morning at 216.5 lb. Yippity-skippity! For comparison, I weighed 250 when I went into the hospital at the end of February with my gall bladder attack.

So, finances must be done, to disentangle my affairs from the Crew's. Mail must be gone through. Webcomics must be read. Calendar must be updated. And gear must be cleaned and put away; the Venturers set up the tents to air out (and boy, they needed it) before we dismissed last night, but dishes must be done, etc.

Good to be home. Thank you all for praying. God showed himself to be with us every step of the way.

Rougher! Tougher! Buffer!
