I’ve been, well, overwhelmed with living lately. We’ve been extremely busy at home and work. I want to get more time to write, but I have little time to do that. So, I will do my best.
As we leave May and enter June, I am preparing for a camping trip with my Girl Scouts. We are going to the great wilds of Cape Cod for a huge camporee of approximately 2200 girls. It will not be quiet.
We’ve purchased a tent in preparation for this. In addition to our tent purchase, I finally agreed to let Dr. Jay purchase a boat. He’s been wanting to buy an inflatable boat for years. We decided that this kayak would be good. It is more of a canoe than kayak, and it only holds one adult+ two kids or two adults (when the kids are at camp??) We took it down to the river in town and checked it out.
We’ve also jumped into summer with the pool around the corner opening up. When I say “around the corner”, it is a 3 minute bike ride to the club. The girls spent at least 7 hours there this past weekend.
I have not been doing so well with my business project. I am getting lots of great feedback and many people thinking it is a wonderful idea, but I am getting no work. A great idea that nobody is willing to try. I need to brain storm this weekend when I am camping and come up with some new ways to get the word out.
Work is tiring. What can I do? It is. I’ve received no calls from the several jobs I have applied to outside of my company. Sad. I can’t tell if I am over or under qualified. On the other hand, I’ve worked here for 16 years in June and I am finally accruing enough vacation time to save at the end of the year. I really wiped it out with 2 pregnancies with bedrest and 2 infants where mom stayed home when they were ill.
I am also working on reinventing me. After my wedding, I lost 50 lbs and got much healthier. I am trying to do this again. I feel much healthier than in the past, but I weigh almost as much as I did when I gave birth to Luna! I am really trying T-Tapp again and I will stick with it longer. I also have 2 half-marathons planned for the winter. Hopefully, in 6 months to a year, I will be thinner, fitter and all around healthier.
