Camp Mom

Holy Cannoli I'm tired!
Nothing new, I suppose. But after 2 weeks of WG while LG finished up summer school, then 4 weeks of LG while WG was in summer school, and now a week of both (with 2 1/2 to go), I'm running out of brain-building ideas to keep them happy, active, and for tiring them out.
Of course, we swim nearly every day. And my mom's in town now for a few days, so we'll be over at her hotel using that pool.  Y'know, for a change of scenery. And in 2 weeks we're going to Yosemite!!!!!!!!  :)
Then WG will be back in school, and LG a week after that.
Next week, however, Hubby will be in rehearsals/performance, and my mom will be back home.  So it's just me, aaaaaaallllllll day and into the evening.


But, if I do say so myself, I think I've done a pretty good job so far of keeping them active & interested. We're all pretty tired at the end of the day, and they've been sleeping well.
And I have my twice-weekly yoga to keep me sane.  Well, except for next week.

But, before we know it, the new school year will have begun, and I will have a break.

Y'know what I'd REALLY like to do?  Go to one of he plush spas in Calistoga, by the natural hot springs, get a room with a comfy king-sized bed, and be placed into a medically induced coma for a week.
Followed by a day or two of springs-soaking and massage.

But that's probably not gonna happen.

In Geek News (Best if read in an old-timey newsreel-type of voice): The past few days have been a huge  boon for nerds and bookworms everywhere!  Starting with the release of the 26-second teaser-trailer for season 3 of "Sherlock," followed shortly by the announcement of the new "Doctor Who" (Peter Capaldi!!!!!!!! I'm so excited!!!!!!!), and then wrapping up with today's publication of "Undead & Unsure," the 12th installment of Maryjanice Davidson's "Queen Betsy" series!  There hasn't been this much excitement in Nerdville since the return of "Star Trek!"

OK.  Calming breaths.

Have I mentioned that I am now officially 44?  As of last Wednesday, when Hubby took me to the city for sushi, and I wore my brand-new jeans that my S-I-L bought for me.  The jeans I've since worn 5 times. The jeans I'm wearing now.  It's kind of a big deal, because I've been living in yoga pants for 7 years.  Ever since the weight started creeping on.
I used to live in jeans and tank tops.  But then I got fat & self-conscious & I put them away. But last Wednesday, along with my new jeans, I wore an old tank top.  And danged if I didn't feel sexy!  I've been wearing that tank top along with the jeans.

I need to get more pairs of jeans and some more tanks.

I've also been looking at the Daily Hiit workouts.  Holy moly!  But they look fab, and I'll probably start doing them next week. I'll build up to it, maybe starting with 2x/week. I'm getting stronger and fitter, and my 40's are shaping up (har har!) to be the best decade yet.

OK, off to relax.  Read some more "Queen Betsy" and surf Tumblr.  :)

Nighty-night, ducks!

Happy belated birthday :) I'm excited about the new doctor too. It's nice to have a new face to wonder about...

I like the getaway idea...think you should try and find a cheap little off season little cabin in the woods once the kids are back together and relax and read and chill for a few days. A few glasses of wine and a good book and peace and quiet...

How can you tell that is what I am daydreaming about at the moment :P

Thank you!
The cabin sounds like a GREAT idea! :)
