Hello from the other side (of the semester)
Hello…it’s me. I just finished grading this morning, so now I’m feeling pretty much like
Summer time, y’all. I’m really excited. Lila has a few more weeks of school, and then in June she’ll be in a camp for three days a week—just enough for us to have a little space and time to hopefully maintain some sanity through the summer days. We have a big trip planned at the end of June/beginning of July—we’re headed out to Seattle to visit Ryan’s family, and then from there we’re going to…Hawaii!
Will I find a cursed tiki? Will Ryan fall in love with a single mother? Will we find out that Lila is secretly a Hawaiian princess? Will Charlie wear island shirts for the entire two weeks?
In other news—or perhaps in related news—we’ve been trying to eat healthier. I pulled out my box of summer clothes the other day, and yeah…that was fun.
We’ve been focusing a little more on eating whole foods, cutting back carbs a little…blah, blah, blah:
Basically we’ve been eating kale.
I’ve also been forcing myself to do more classes at the gym—I took a spin class last week, and have been going to a Tuesday/Thursday “Power Hour” class—basically kind of an interval bootcamp class. I told a friend it feels like a middle school gym class from hell. Fun. It’s not fun actually—at all. But, it’s a way harder workout than I would make myself do on my own, and the shame of quitting prevents me from leaving the class early, even though I’m dying.
Other than that, not much going on over here—I’m hoping to blog a bit more now that the semester is over, but we’ll see how that goes.
Have a great weekend!
