Ben is coming home

Sunday, July 13, 2014

After 3 1/2 weeks at camp, then returning to his dad's house, my 13 yr old son will be coming home this afternoon/evening. I have not yet talked to his dad about what time they may arrive, but I do know that Ben wanted to go to Amtgard this afternoon, so they likely won't get on the road till 3 or 4 which would put them here between 4:30 and 5:30.

Although I am looking forward to him being home, I think it may be stressing me out a bit. Not sure what he will do to occupy his time during the week while I am at work. Talked to one of the other moms whose kid went to camp with Ben, and she said he had grown 3 inches and lost weight. I remember him coming home from camp last summer all slim and tan.

Oh, and I had a NSV last night. I WANTED to eat, but didn't NEED to eat, and I did NOT eat to try and fill whatever emotional void was going on. I am wondering if it is the stress of my son coming home. Even good stress is stress, and it does affect us.

So, I need to get off my duff, and get moving this morning. I slept in again, and although it felt great, I know it will be a challenge to get up on time tomorrow. Why do I do this to myself?
