Through the Wringer

I have been sleeping like a lumber yard since I came to Duke DFC. That’s what 3 hours of exercise will do. Oh, and not drinking. It also helps to have no work to keep one awake with worry.  

My home for the next month is the Candlewood Suites where for $1395 a month, a person can have their own room, bathroom and kitchenette. It is all a bit brown but otherwise perfectly clean and comfortable. There is no housekeeping, so you have to use the onsite laundry to wash your sheets and towels, and, of course, your mountain of workout clothes. Candlewood Suites pride themselves on their standard of service and so they have added a fitness suite just beside the washers and dryers, allowing residents to use the treadmill or ride the recumbent bike while their laundry also twists and turns. Is there no escape?

    Knock ’em dead, Liz. Sorry I didn’t catch you before you fled for fat camp. Enjoying the posts and deeply envious of your nightly lumber yard routine. Also glad the food is good. Do you read a lot between classes or are there other diversions? Looking forward to the new svelte you. Much love, Ramadan Sue
