Back to Life, Back to Reality
This is probably going to be the hardest week for me in 7 months. This week is jammed packed with family functions, parties, and school meetings. This week is truly going to test my sanity - as well as my strength.
My cousin, who I haven't seen in 16 years, came to visit us from England this past Saturday. We stayed at my mom's and had a big barbecue Saturday night. I was really good - I did drink, but I did not eat too much. Yesterday, he came home with me and is staying until tomorrow. I'm trying to think of things to do today, but I live in one of the most boring places in the U.S. - so not really a whole lot of options in regards of places to go or things to see. Then tomorrow, we all pack up and go spend the day at my mom's. Then Wednesday, I will be in a school meeting all day then back to my mom's in Oklahoma for another barbecue/ party with more family. Thursday, another day at my mom's and then coming home that night. Friday, another school meeting all day and boot camp that night. Then a weekend full of going out with my friends and more partying. I'm tired from just typing about it.
I will be missing boot camp tonight and Wednesday - and I'm really not happy about it. With as many temptations and lack of healthy activity I'll be partaking in this week - I really don't need to be missing the one thing that keeps me totally on track. Worst case scenario means taking this week as a mini-break, and jumping back into full speed ahead next week.
Next week, my teaching internship officially starts. I go back to the grind of being at work all day, taking classes, having homework - you know - the "normal" life. I figure that this week, I will keep up with my blog by rambling about whatever subject pops into my head when I sit down at the computer. Being that I'm going to be pulled in so many directions - I really don't want to add the work of planning my blog posts like I usually do. I will see how "winging it" goes - and apologize in advance for the strong possibility that this week can be full of not much more than just words on a computer screen.
So, that's it for today - please just bare with me for the week....I will be back to my normal self next week. :)
Till next time. ;)
