Planning all the Plans

I'm making BIG PLANS for summer. And by BIG PLANS I mean I'm running a series of summer day camps.... eight weeks of day camps actually. The camps are only 2 days a week, so it's like, no big deal. Plus, I've done all these things with my own kids for years and years and years, so I might as well let other little people enjoy my shenanigans. I'm also going to do preschool in the fall. I've been gathering all my teaching supplies and curriculum, and I'm pretty jazzed about it all. Plus, I get to determine my own hours, so it's a magnificent plan for me. 

The kids have been super busy, as usual. With the year end creeping up on us, the kids have been reading as fast as they can, because they're trying to complete the school reading challenge. We also have field trips and band concerts and cub scouts and activity days and so on and so forth. I am constantly checking and rechecking my planner and calendar to make sure I haven't missed anything. 

Speaking of re-checks, I'm having another biopsy of my thyroid. It's gotten bigger in width and volume, despite being on thyroid medicine, so they need to take some more samples and look at everything all over again. More than anything else, it's super annoying. Oh well. 

I have also started running! And when I refer to running, I refer to any and all movement that is not walking, because I run exceedingly slow. I'd be embarrassed, but I'm too proud of myself to care what anyone else might think. 

Meanwhile, we are taking turns having some nasty flu-like bug that gives us the throw-ups. I am SO OVER the vomiting. I'm *thisclose* to putting people on a diet of broth for the next 7 days. Also, so much laundry! I have trouble keeping up on the best of days, let alone with sick people in the house.
