Scrambled Thoughts With a Side of Achen'

Well, I am back from girl's camp and we all survived. Quite well actually! I had tons of fun and my kids enjoyed being tossed around. My poor hubby was worked to death, but he too survived. I am beat though. I have bruises all up and down my legs, arms and bum from tubing down the river. My legs are still tired from our forever long (but totally awesome) hike which gave me a blister on my heal the size of a small watermelon. I can't seem to catch up on sleep, and my foot still hurts really bad. (remind me to get that taken care of.) I loved it! I can't wait to go back next year!

I have about a million pictures to post but they are going to have to wait a bit. I have two photo sessions that I need to finish up. It is going to be another busy week.

After working so many days in a row last week (12 to be exact) I was having a little crappy attitude about working. Not the job. The job is fine. Just working in general. Going to girl's camp was a great break, but the working lots isn't changing for a little while. I know that it is the best for my family right now so I will just be grateful that I have this to help support our family. I am also grateful that I got my shift for the next few months and I actually got my 2nd choice! That means that I get to go to church again, and that I get Saturday's off! That made me feel better!

I am pretty proud of my crazy kids! They have been great helpers lately and I just need to take a moment to express how much I love them! Each one of them are so different, but they all have one thing in common, their mom and dad love them to pieces! They have been such great troupers through this crazy time in our lives. They make me laugh every day. I don't know what I would do without them! Thanks guys for making our family fun! (Even though they won't read this for years, maybe even never, still thanks guys!)

Well, I do have more thoughts, but I need to get working on all the things that I left behind last week. It is nice to be back and to read all 100 posts that I missed while I was Finding N-E-M-O (The theme of camp. Finding New Experiences to Make us One.) Have a great Monday!

I am glad that you had such a fun time. It is always good to get away even if it is for a little bit.

A nice break (even if it left you with blisters) is so great. I am glad you are back now and that you're feeling a bit refreshed.
