Full Week

What a week!!!! It has been a babies, camp next week, hosting dinners, exercise, working childcare, therapy, CRAZINESS!!!

My Deadliest Catch and I are having a date night tonight...the first one in a very long time. I can't remember the last time we went to dinner and a movie. I'm so excited I can't hardly stand it.

I leave tomorrow for camp and I am going to miss my hubbie and kids! Camp, though, has been confirmed by the Lord, so I am very confident in their well being while I'm away. I am looking forward to some amazing time with my Lord and some amazing girls. My plan is to love on them as much as I possibly can!

My eating plan (yes, I have thought it through...I have to have a plan so I can succeed!) is to drink as much water as humanly possible. We'll be outdoors alot, so that shouldn't be a problem. My other plan is to choose fresh fruit whenever possible, and to eat in closely monitored moderation. I am going to do my best to assign point values to the camp food, and I am going to bring some snacks from home. My exercise will consist of running around with my girls whenever possible, and to do situps an pushups everyday. Hopefully we'll be doing a lot of cardio activity!

Dirty Job has been using the sign for "more" which has just pleased me beyond what I can express. I just adore that boy so much, and I am so hopeful for him. I know however he grows and learns is a testament to the Lord and His amazing kindness and grace. It does my heart well to see the physical answer to my daily prayer for communication.

We had the arrival of our newest freakshow member...he's precious through and through. I'm aiming for another visit today before I head up the mountain and he changes a million times over. He's giving me the itch for a third...who knows if it'll pass or if sending What Not To Wear to school will just heap fuel on that small flicker and grow it into a forest fire. Only the Lord knows. I have resolved for it not to happen until I reach my goal weight. Obsessive, maybe, but my size 8's are starting to fit and I'm not really interested in revisiting some other sizes quite yet.

I guess this random blog is over...I am going to try and post my upated weight for Cpt Mom to post on tales from the scales while I'm away. Here's hoping for a pound!
