It's been a busy first week of summer vacation. No reason to expect otherwise. I've - make that we've - been keeping busy running errands. A sampling: WeightWatchers by 10 a.m. (just to weigh in, no way I'm attending the meeting with three boys!), trip to Office Depot to buy lanyards for cub scout camp (sold out), trip to WalMart to buy lanyards, plus a couple of other things for camp. Hair cuts for all three boys at 11:30. Lunch with father-in-law at 12:30. Trip to Target to buy Dear Hubby's and sister-in-law's birthday gifts. Home for 40 minutes before heading back out the door for Son #2's baseball practice. And that was just yesterday. The rest of the week was similar.
Next week will also be busy, but not with errands. We'll spend all day Monday - Friday, at the cub scout camp. I'll be too tired, hot, sweaty, etc. to run errands in the evening. I hope the following week will be relaxing, but I suspect I'll have more shopping to do before Son #1 and Dear Hubby head to Boy Scout Camp in Tennessee on June 16th. You'd think that with the two of them gone for a week, things would be quieter at home. It won't be. Son #2 and Son #3 really "push each other's buttons" so being with just the two of them feels more like 5 kids! I'm hoping to send them each to spend one night at their PawPaw's house - on different nights.
I'm not complaining, though. Busy doesn't always = bad. However, I do need to carve out a little time for prayer and contemplation. Things will slow considerably by the last week in June, but I don't want to keep Him waiting.
By the way, I didn't post Weight Watchers Wednesday this week, because I skipped Wednesday's meeting (we had a wicked thunderstorm). I did go Thursday to weigh in and I weigh exactly the same as the previous week so apparently I'm recovering from the Memorial Day barbecue!
