It never ceases to amaze me: ruck sacks and the like can hold so much stuff!
With room to spare! I didn’t lift them, but I can assure you, those bags were heavy. Just like that, my hubby is off to WLC (the Warrior Leadership Course) or, as I prefer to call it, camp. (Camp is also what we call boarding when we have to leave Geronimo for long periods of time. “Gmo! Do you want to go to camp? Yeay camp!” It just sounds more fun.)
So Stephen is officially off at “camp” and I am officially the a solo rolo once mo’. Or something to that effect.
My days will consist of many of my usual activities (watching Mad Men, reading, working out, napping and/or going to bed early), but in order to avoid going stir crazy, I’ve come up with a few additional ideas. I’ve given each week that Stephen is away a theme that will help me focus my energies and encourage me to not be a slug. Here’s what I came up with:
- This week: writing
- Next week: exploration
- Third week: ???
- Week before he returns home: cleaning frenzy
- Week he comes home: Everybody Loves Stephen Week (Thanks for the idea, Janelle!)
I’m drawing a blank for that third one, but I’ve got two weeks to come up with something. (Ideas? Suggestions?)
So far I’m off to a good start. Sure, it hasn’t been very long, but I’m still giving myself a gold star. I had a killer workout yesterday, and I did some personal writing. Check and check! Now I just need to repeat that for about 30 more days.
Any ideas for my ??? week? I need a theme, people!*
