What's on your (PHOTO FRIDAY) Menu?
It's Fri-YAAAAAAAY! Thank god... Work has been NUTS lately. I worked for 11.5 hours yesterday without a break or a commute--there is no end to how much I could do right now and not feel caught up. Taking Wednesday "off" didn't help, of course, but I still think I probably worked 4 hours on Wed, too. Blah. Hoping it all lets up soon. School ends on June 22, so maybe we'll get some relief, then? I haven't even had a chance to come back on and read OH lately! Hopefully I can get on this weekend and catch up with you all.
Yesterday was a good points day. Thankfully I have had a stretch of small pouch days and haven't been feeling any gnawing hunger for a bit. I think a lot of it is that I finally have my acid reflux under control again :) I always feel like a bottomless pit when my GERD is acting up.
No pics for me this week. I just checked my photo roll and I literally don't have anything new--not even a cat pic... that's how busy I've been!
QOTD: How did you spend your summers as a kid? I was a camp kid. When I was young I went to day camps but then I went to away camp for the whole summer up in Maine. I loved camp so much. I loved the activities, new friends, silly songs and skits, competitions, plays, swimming, traditions, and generally being up in Maine on a big lake where it was so beautiful. We always spent time as a family in Kennebunkport on our way home, too, so that's another place that feels like summer to me.
