Summer Time

I just finished signing up C for summer camps. I sure hope he gets in. He picked a Gymnastics camp and a skate boarding camp. One is two weeks sand the other one. I figure that will make the summer fun. A week here and there, and then plenty of time to lounge at the base pool the other days. Plus I do not know when Bible camp is, so we certainly want to be in that in DC *on Bolling AFB it is free*. He is also taking Tae Kwon Do once a week starting at the end of school, so he is pretty excited for summer to get here.

In conjunction with signing him up for camps & a class I signed up to rejoin my exercise class called Strength & Sculpt plus a Zumba class. I don't know what has gotten into me lately, but I just love the gym. :P) I had to make a trade off with Zumba though, it is on Monday nights - same as my book club. So I am going to look for another book club. Quite honestly I haven't loved any of the books we've read anyway.

In other news, I am contemplating signing up for guitar lessons. I cannot read a note, keep any sort of rhythm, or even hold the darn thing right - but it seems like fun. The cost & time is holding me back. Camps and Gym classes cost a bundle plus I have commitments with my class three days a week. Guitar lessons might have to be a fall activity.

Moving on, I have been making a conscious effort to turn the computer off. What a flipping pain in the butt. I turn the thing off and then two seconds later I want to check something. But, that is the problem. I swear I see FB updates 10 times or more a day. I felt I needed to be more productive, so weening myself from the instant updates on blogs, Facebook, Ebay, and email seemed to be the way to go.

It's hard to turn off the computer and you're right as soon as you do you realize you 'forgot' to check something! I love my iPod for that reason...I can check something real easily and it doesn't (normally) consume too much time although I've put some games on there that can be time wasters. Those summer camps sound like fun. I thought about signing my oldest ones up for something but figure Z wouldn't go for it. The thing is he'll be gone when they are so I may just do it...we'll see if we have the money. It'd be a break for me (I think its only a week or 2) and nice for the kids too. But Z can't trust anybody...my poor kids can't join sports or anything...sigh...

Wow you are ambitious. Hard to believe school is almost over and you get to do all those summer camps for C. The bosy just got a paper sent home for summer camps today, but I doubt they'll do any becuase Jess will gone 6 weeks and I just dont think I could do all that w/ 3 kids by myself.
