Well, this summer has been flying by! Raven has to go back to school on August 19. Which sucks. She just got out on June 3 and had just a little over 2 months for a summer break. They have to go back so early because of all the snow days. This actually does not make since to me because she missed the snow days when she was in 7th grade but will be making them up in 8th grade. The school board actually does not care about the kids learning they just want them in school for a certain amount of days. I remember when I was in elementary and middle school we got out at the end of May and did not have to go back until the end of August / beginning of September.
Oh well. Not much I can do about it.
We are trying to plan a vacation at the end of July. We would like to go to Busch Gardens and Water Country USA in Virginia. First, we have to put new breaks and tires on the SUV. In anticipation for the trip, I bought a bathing suit (2 tops and 1 bottom) and a pair of short-shorts. This will be the first time since I was like 10 years old that I would be wearing a bathing suit without wearing a shirt to cover myself up. I am a little nervous about it though. I do not have a nice body but I did lose about 70 pounds and am more comfortable with the way I look now than I have been in the past. Therefore, I said what the hell. I want to go to a water park and have fun. And I cannot do that if I am self-conscious about my body. So, I will be taking pictures of myself in the bathing suits and posting them for you all to see. That is my first step in preparing myself. So be on the lookout for that upcoming post and pictures.
