Why does working out have to be such a pain?? Why can't we just get married, have kids, and go back to the carefree, high-metabolic bliss of the old days? I remember in high school I would sell candy and literally eat like 6 candy bars a day. Reese's, Snickers, Skittles, you name it. Now, I feel like I'm going to pay a lifetime for the low-fat choice of ONE York Peppermint Patty. But anyway, I worked out yesterday morning- chest & back- and I am still so sore. I wanted to get up and do my cardio (plyometrics- makes you want to die) but I feel so wiped out that I'll have to do it tonight.
We are picking up R (my oldest stepson, the 18-!!!-year old) today, and he'll be with us for the next 6 days. He was able to fit us into his schedule a bit since he'll be leaving for college in a couple weeks. :( I get emotional whenever I think about it. Things just won't be the same. Which I guess might be a good thing being things were never that great, but part of our family will be gone. When he does come to visit it will be on his terms and when he wants (IF he wants), and it just seems like he'll be more of a visitor rather than part of our happy little family. Maybe I'm just analyzing it all too much. But he's growing up regardless. *sigh*
So as I was trying to say, we are hoping to go out of town for the time that R's with us. We were supposed to use our friends' house in La Quinta (out past Palm Springs), but they changed their mind and now we are scrambling to find somewhere to go. The hard part is that now we have to find something that's pet-friendly, so one house in Palm springs that we loved for Mother's Day we now cannot do. Big Hunk emailed a few houses (well, their owners anyway. The houses themselves are lousy at replying to emails) last night, so we'll see.
Well, just wanted to check in. I need to take the kids to Target and get some cleaning done before we pick up R. Hope everyone has a great day!! :)
