We pushed through all day Friday… and into the when. When we finally got into Potomac, MD at 1am. It was rough!!! I was sneezing and coughing and blowing my nose every five seconds. And to top it off, I was driving. 😦

We left Albuquerque, NM Thursday morning with temperatures in the teens… Yikes! It had been way too long since I was in temps that cold. But Mike was driving and we made it into Amarillo as the sun started to peak out of the clouds and warm things up.

We stopped off at Wendy’s for a Baked Potato and Green Salad. I immediately ate the Baked Potato and held off on the Green Salad until later…. we ended up sleeping in Little Rock, Arkansas.

From which we left early in the A.M. Friday morning… there was a Starbucks right next door to the Hotel, and I couldn’t resist the temptation of a Pumpkin Spiced Latte with Soy Milk…. From there we pushed into Tennessee where we stopped for lunch. I wanted so much to eat fast food, but we actually found a Panera Bread place. That’s where I warmed right up with a Vegetable Soup and Green Salad with an Apple on the side. That was a very refreshing lunch, from which I got up to take my empty plates to the trash, when I hit the dividing wall and dropped the soup bowl on the floor.

When we got to Flagstaff, I relieved Mike behind the wheel and we stopped at a familiar place, McDonalds. This time, I got a Fish Filet. I hadn’t had a Fish-Filet since 1970 something. It was good, and killed the hunger pains, but it wasn’t a good move on the eating plan.

We made it to Albuquerque around 6pm and Mike wanted some Ministrone Soup(which sounded really good!) so I GPS’d the nearest Olive Garden Restaurant. Where we had the Ministrone Soup and I had a small plate of Noodles and Souce, over which we decided to call it a day and hold up in town. Which is good, because I’m needing another dose of the Benedryl and right to bed.!!! I just remembered, neither before lunch or dinner did I take my Barley Max either:(
