Truth is... this post would have been up on Thursday had I not spent two hours filling out camp paperwork.
Truth is... even with the gazillion snow days, shortened summer, and creative planning, I am still shelling out just shy of $3,000 for summer camp. Remind me again why I work?
Truth is... I'm stepping back my training walks. I am still aiming for 20-25 miles a week, but right now it's just too time consuming. It may be the worst move, but 6 weeks prior I will step it back up. Thing is, I work on my feet moving all day long and then go walk 12 miles without even a blister. It's not the same as doing 20 miles for three days straight, I get it, but the training is taking all the fun out of the event. Plus, all this walking is leaving me alone with my thoughts. And that is never good.
Truth is... I feel like I'm just going through the motions right now. School's still got another month to go, during which little if no learning will happen. Just field trips and cook outs. Youngest is clearly having much anxiety about middle school, and Oldest is frantically trying to get his grades up so he doesn't lose his computer for the summer. Work is... work, and I'm just feeling blah.
Truth is... I miss just going for a run. No mileage to track. No motive. No have to do this guilt. Just my tunes and shoes. I really need to get back to that.
Truth is... we got two new fish!

Truth is... We are on vacation starting Sunday. Lots to do, multiple projects lined up, and in the end are likely to get a whole lot of nothing completely finished. Story. Of. My. Life. Lots of projects 97% finished.
Truth is... I'm really hoping to at least finish the grout and trim on the kitchen tile. I did the other side of the kitchen on Wednesday. Then maybe tackle the window casing and paint. If I can do that, it will just leave the upper cabinets to repaint.
Truth is... if I spent the vacation doing the 3% that needs to be finished instead of starting something new, I might feel like the time off was well spent.
Truth is... the pollen's been vicious lately. My eyes and throat have been burning and itchy. Really hope it's just the allergies and not Youngest's stomach bug making a come back.
Truth is... It's been a rough week. Tony and Youngest were reading my blog one morning and Youngest noted the title.
Tony: "Yeah, it's funny right? "Surviving Boys"
Youngest: "Yeah. Especially because lately she's barely making it though most days."
Well said Youngest. Well said.
