Just a quick note to let you all know how I'm doing. I've been spending the majority of my time obsessing over the fact that my six- and eight-year-olds will be going to sleepaway camp next week. I'm equal parts excited and terrified. This is the camp that Jim and I worked out in the 90s and we absolutely love the camp. I know the kids will have a wonderful time - they're very independent and don't get homesick when they sleepover at other peoples houses. They've also gone to the YMCA's day camp for the last three summers so they "get" camp. It's just the things that mom's worry about that have my stomach in a knot constantly. Things like: how is Gracie going to take a shower without us there to help her, how is she going to read her mail, will Jacob's allergic reactions to bug bites be a problem and will he remember to change his underwear every day. I've been making packing lists, and lists of things to buy and still have yet to start packing or buying any of it. Life is just so darn busy it's hard to get anything done. We've had parties and Father's Day and 5ks and my birthday and Jim's birthday and well, you all know how it is. So anyway, that's what's been going on with me.

I made it to Zumba on Monday and felt fan-freakin-tastic, but I missed class on Tuesday for Jim's bday dinner and had planned to go tonight until I got a reminder call from the dentist that Jacob and I had appointments tonight. I've been eating ok, not anywhere near where I was during the Shakeology challenge, but I'm still taking my lunch to work and and following the program pretty well during the week. I'm just not getting enough exercise in.

Well, I need to head to bed because I have the day off tomorrow and am going to Cub Scout camp with the kids tomorrow.

This is Gracie at the camp she will be going to next week. We were there a few weeks ago for an alumni event.
Look at that face. She's going to have a blast!
