This morning Mack and I drove Cal to sleep away camp.

Cal was super excited.

I promise we didn’t send him to prison camp.

He had already made a friend when we left him there.

I wonder what he is doing right now.

Somehow on the drive back I got screwed up and Mack and I sort of took a scenic route home. These highways to nowhere are freaky:

After Mack and I got home, I changed into gym clothes and he and I headed to Lifestyles LA Fitness. I am writing a separate post about my workout and food today (if I ever get it finished), but after doing one of Trainer ChrisModelFit workouts, I did 20 minutes on the elliptical while chatting with my friend Sheena.

Then Mack and I went to Evos for lunch.

It is his first “only child” day, so we were sort of celebrating. Plus, I didn’t want to make lunch. I had the spicy Thai salad with crispy chicken (separate post), and Mack had the kid’s hot dog. He loves how they slice and grill their hot dogs.

After lunch we came home for quiet time and reading, then he and I headed out for “only child” celebration number two…

Menchie’s is bright and fun inside.

We were the only customers in there when we arrived, and the staff was super friendly and helpful.

Thinking about my nutritional plan (will be another post!), I got a combo of two no-sugar-added, low carb, zero fat flavors:

Mack got a triple combo of something.

Toppings!

I stuck with just fresh fruit. I feel so angelic.

Mine is the one on the left:

Menchie’s got two thumbs up from my only child and me.

After Menchie’s we ran by Publix then came home. I’ve been working on this blog post and my “workout and food” post for today, and Mack has been reveling in not having to argue over what TV show to watch. I made a healthy dinner.

It even included roasted potatoes, which I SKIPPED! Am I sprouting wings yet? Chad will be home soon and we’ll head out on the family evening walk. I plan to join them.

I’m missing Cal. He’s supposed to call us tonight. I hope he had a great first day!

Because not much else has been happening around here. Swim team practice. Physical therapy. Laundry. Target. Nothing exciting. I’ve been taking it easy this week. I think I’ve been feeling a little overloaded recently.

So here are a bunch more photos from the Fourth of July. Because what else am I going to do with them? They are chronological.
