Let the Games Begin!

It is Friday evening at 9:00 PM, Jude is in bed, Randy is gone helping some friends and I am engulfed in the calm before the storm.  This summer is going to be one of the busiest I've had in a while.  And while I'm thankful that I'm no longer pregnant, having Jude in tow creates an equal amount of hurdles.  Tonight I'm trying to prepare for going to Camp next week, but my son decided to experiment with pulling up in his crib so I've done more babysitting than preparation.

Tomorrow will consist of cooking and as much preparation for C as I can get to.  Tomorrow evening we will be celebrating with my brother and his fiance via a wedding shower.  All next week Jude and I will be camping!  Randy can't take off because of said-busy summer.  No matter how significant of an experience camp always is, it is EXHAUSTING! So, by the time Saturday rolls around, we will be ready to come home!

But little rest for the weary, let me tell you! That same day of returning from camp, we will be celebrating with some other friends via another wedding shower!  The following week will be working and recovering so that the following Saturday we will head to Nashville, TN.  We are blessed to be allowed to sing on Acapella's new Praise & Harmony CD.  We'll see how things go with an entire carload of us traveling out there and a 7 month old who has never really traveled for more than a couple of hours!  Lord willing, we will return home the following Wednesday to possibly some fabulous house guests! And then in marches 4th of July!

And no that does not include the two actual weddings eluded to above, one in July and one in August! I'm tired just thinking about it all. I'm making it my goal to continue focusing on my weight-loss and eliminating my toxic relationship with stress throughout all of this, so would you please pray for me? I'm up for the challenge, but it will nevertheless be a challenge.

Finally, that boy of mine is 7 months old today.  I'm so blessed with such a good guy and my heart wants to burst, I love him so much.
