We finally went camping again this past weekend. This time we were armed with an air mattress and warmer weather. It was so much better! The kids had a blast, Keyla did not take off, and I was not nearly as stiff. Jay and his brother made a shelter. Jimmy and Bianca roasted marshmallows and played in the dirt. I knitted a new skirt for Bianca's doll. It was a productive and fun weekend. I feel much more relaxed even if I had to do six loads of laundry when we got home. I am almost caught up on all the housework. I am just waiting for Jimmy to pick up the playroom so I can vacuum. It is amazing how much stuff can accumulate when no one is home.
I have a job interview tomorrow. It is a part-time position in the town office. Hopefully, it will work out with Bianca's preschool schedule. It will be nice to get out of the house more. I am glad it is part-time so I don't have to worry about whether or not Jay will pick up the housework slack. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

RUNNING! This is my new hobby. I finished Week 2, Day 1 of the Couch to 5K (C25K) yesterday. I am amazed that I have been sticking with it. Normally, I exercise for a few days and then quit. This time I have been sticking with it. Jay is doing it as well. He is on Week 5. The elementary school is perfect for running. Each lap is 1/4 mile and the kids can play on the playground while we run. Last night when we went running Jimmy and Bianca ran with us. I am not surprised that they did way better than we did. Bianca was running laps around us. I am going to run my first 5K in September. Jay and I are both doing it. It is in honor of a local fallen soldier/police officer. Any local readers who are interested should run.
