Stress Relief.  How to cut loose when your kids are away at camp for a week.

I’m an attached parent.  An attachment parent?  I don’t know what to call it, but I’m a very involved parent.  I love my kids.  Love to be with them.  Spend all my time with them.  They’re pretty awesome guys.

I never really get a lot of time in my own head without interruptions.  So what do I do to cut loose while all the kids are away at camp for a whole week for the first time ever, ever, ever?

Well I’ll tell you what I do.

Instead of running to school and work and back this week; I walked.  And then I got all crazy and I drove across town and ran at Gulley Park to run because I haven’t been able to run there in forever.

You can laugh if you want but I felt so free.

Me running at Gulley Park instead of running to work was similar to the first bath you take after camping in the woods for a week.

Tomorrow I might get really crazy and run at the Lake.  How awesome would that be?
