I work for the school district so I have summers off to play and spend time with my family. Being a very structured type A personality, I like routine. Structure. Order. That includes the times and days I set aside to blog - to have what one may call a personal therapy session. Unfortunately my schedule has been far from what It usually is on a day to day basis so my blogging has been a bit sporadic it seems lately. Has this been hard? Yes! Almost like the feeling you get when you forget to read or don't make the time for your scripture reading in the morning (that empty feeling). Like I said, the main reason I keep a blog is for myself. If it inspires and helps others along the way, great! It's been hard to not feel like I have the time to sit and express myself. I think about it all the time actually. Almost like I yearn for those moments. I can't wait to get them back. (Not to mention, have time to read all my favorite blogs too.)
The good news is, as much as I love summer, it will be coming to an end for me next week when I return to work. I wouldn't trade one thing I was able to experience this summer even if it left me with little time for myself. I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things. I feel like my mind has been on overload with things I'm wanting to share and blog about in relation to my weight-loss journey and where my life has taken me. In the meantime, have a look at some of the things I've been up to.
Pioneer Trek In Wyoming!
Seattle Rock N Roll Half Marathon!
Quick trip to Cannon Beach, OR
Family Zumba! (FYI - I'm not a ZUMBA girl but it was fun to try. My niece is a certified instructor so she's a pro and makes it look so easy.)
A weekend with family at the cabin in Coeur D' Alene!
Branson, Missouri - With my daughter's dance team! (They spent the week opening for several shows. SO cool!)
Oh, and shall I mention, I'm back in Seattle this week? Yep, it's true! (Love it!) My daughter is up here attending church camp and the hubby and son are off at scout camp. My best friend Tam and I are spending the week playing, exploring and hiking - some of the things I've fallen in love with in this smaller body of mine.
