Hurley, currently.

sweating, post-workout. I haven't been great about doing 100% of the workouts for Insanity, but I've been mostly consistent. Two days I had to substitute other exercise for videos when I couldn't swing the scheduling of it. Two days I had to miss because we were camping, so I'm sort of doubling up for a few days to make up for it. But I'm happy I've (mostly) made it through 17 days of the 60.

happy about how the results of my working out are going. Though I haven't lost any weight (and I was frustrated about that) I've lost inches and gained a lot of strength. All good. I'm gonna drag the monkeys to Kaiser in a minute to test my body fat to see if that has improved.

laughing at my dog, who sits in his chair as though he's a (very long-legged) human.

annoyed that my children put up such a fight about taking a shower all the time. As I tell them regularly, it's just part of being a human. YOU HAVE TO GET CLEAN, MONKEYS.

pleased we had such a good camping experience. I didn't sleep very well, but the rest of it was good. E and I are planning future camping trips, hopefully one or two more this summer.

hungry. No breakfast yet.

sad that we're not going to Yosemite this year.

inspired by all the books I've been reading.

drinking ice water like it's my job.

getting serious about all the jam I have to make soon.

ignoring the fact that I'm supposed to be writing things this summer.

enjoying my time with my kiddos. I don't think I could be a stay-at-home mom all year, but I love, love, love, LURVE pretending I'm one all summer. My kids are so much fun and I love spending time with them. Even when they whine about taking a shower. They're not really ever bad, so I feel really fortunate.

planning another shopping trip to Thrift Town before school starts.

enjoying my house, my garden, my cats, my free time.

dreaming about the beautiful high-elevation lakes we saw on Hwy 88 yesterday. I'd love to go back and spend some serious time by one of those dark blue bodies of water.

excited about school starting up again in August. I'm not ready for it to happen yet, but I'm at the part of summer where I start thinking about how I can do things better in the year to come.


and here's a little random iPhone photo dump from the last week:

Farmers' Market lunch with E last week near his office in downtown Sacramento. You can see the capitol at the end of the street.

E man, doing some serious fireworks for the 4th. Henry was inside, having puked again, but Roo, my mom, my dad and I enjoyed the extravaganza.
