The summer is officially here!
Thursday, June 10, 2010
I just finished signing my son up for swimming lessons and to me, that means summer is finally here. We have begun the busy schedule and craziness of trying to cram all the fun stuff into 3 short months of nice weather. This weekend is going to be the first of many super busy weekends, starting with my birthday tomorrow, driving up north tomorrow night and the Flag Day Parade on Saturday. I hope Sunday brings some relaxation!
But what I am REALLY looking forward to is next weekend. Not because of fathers' day, but because Mom and I are escaping for 2.5 days of geocaching freedom. We are planning to head out Friday evening and not return until Sunday night, going where we want, when we want and doing what we want. No screaming kids, no schedules to keep, husbands to feed. Just us. We will be geocaching til our feet fall off! (if you don't know what geocaching is, check out www.geocaching.com - I call it hiking with a purpose)
In other news, today was my last therapy session for my wrist. After breaking it 3.5 months ago and needing surgery to put it back together, I am almost back to normal. Getting there slowly, but I am getting there. Hopefully the doctor will clear me to start weight training again and I can look forward to doing more at the gym than just cardio. I have almost all of my range of motion back, but have enough to not notice a difference most days. My therapist is impressed with my progress and told me I was a model patient; I am really going to miss her. Sometimes you find kindred spirits in the most unlikely of places.
