Will this roller coaster ever slow down long enough to get off so that I can take a potty break?!

So a whirlwind trip north to visit the fam. It was great, as usual, but way too short. There was also too much work and not enough fun. Too much booze, not enough healthy food. Not much for "exercise" but some awesome kite flying with the kidlets (and sprinting across fields to rescue kites) and good ol' farm work (hefting heavy objects and carrying them across large farm yards, climbing in and out of implements to clean them, and dashing across the yard to answer phones, rescue brothers, or stop water tanks from overflowing). Yet the scale showed some kinder numbers to me tonight at WI so I can't be too upset.

Bootcamp tonight was awesome! I love our guy--he encourages us to challenge ourselves, but not to the point of injury. He's supportive and funny yet kicks my ass, which is good, 'cause that's what I'm payin' him for! Tuesday is cardio day, so I'm a little scared, but I know I need to kick it up a notch or two.

The weekend will be busy-- the Underwear Affair is Saturday and I work on Sunday afternoon. Mom's coming down as race support and to help me get organized in the house and garden.

Had noodles tonight for the first time in over a month (I'm so glad they're back!) and they were YUMMY! Mmmmm!

And I think that's it. I need to go to bed. I have a sneaking suspicion I'm going to hurt tomorrow. The still-trembling arms 4 hours post-bootcamp are a good clue!

Sounds like you had a good trip! Farm work can definitely be a workout!!
