Anyone else's life get flipped upside down come summer? It seems like we're always on the go come summer. I have nearly every weekend booked up from now until Labour Day; not to mention the day trips and activities the Monkeys and I will be doing between now and then too.
We kicked off our summer with a birthday party down in Cambridge on Friday. Driving through the rain and seeing the flooding in the K-W area with my own eyes was crazy. And maybe a tad bit scary. We were fine. The boys had a blast at the party and we went to Boston Pizza for dinner with friends.
We celebrated the long weekend with our first bonfire of the season. I think I spent most of my time blocking the path between my running children and the fire (I cannot count how many times I had to say "no running around the fire." The little stinkers were just way to excited) and cleaning up marshmallows.
I also had some vet time this past weekend too. I noticed on Thursday our girl kitten seemed off. Friday she was limping and hiding. Saturday I spent 6 hours at the vet's office with her. They did x-rays to rule out a broke bone or dislocated hip. Because she's so tiny it took three attempts to get a good x-ray of her. Thankfully they only charged me for one! Ends up she only had a soft tissue injury. Some pain medication and lots of rest was all she needed. She's back to being her spunky self again. She's also become a cuddle monster. She'll climb into anyone's lap for a cuddle at anytime. She's taken a big liking to Hubby. He can be changing a diaper and she'll curl up in his lap.
I've been hitting the gym hard this past week. My body is sore. I'm looking forward to my rest day tomorrow.
I have not been eating the greatest lately. I've been tracking well. Just not really caring about my choices. That needs to change. I get in all the good foods I need. It's hard not to. There's a rainbow of beautiful fruits and veggies that are in season right now. I love all the fresh produce in my house right now. Then I don't think twice when I dip into the cookies, the popsicles and chips. I have a birthday coming up in a few weeks. Gotta eat well coming up to the day since I know there will be a couple of celebrations with lots of calorie heavy goodies. I won't feel as guilty then if I'm good now.
And now it's time for a bike ride with the kiddos before it either gets too hot or it rains.
