Once upon a time, my husband was friends with a guy. They hung out together a decent amount. We all started hanging out as couples which was nice for us because we didn’t have too many couple friends. It was nice for them because they had a couple kids, and we were willing to come to them and hang out with them.
My Valentine’s decorations are up already, and I would love to say that all my other holiday decorations are down. Alas, they are not. We have 4 rotting pumpkins in our flowerbed. I swore this would not happen again this year because pumpkin vines are the worst to get rid of! We also have our nativity set still falling over when the wind blows in the front yard. Oh, and the Christmas lights on the bushes.
Sometimes when you stay at home all day, there comes a lull in the afternoon, when hopefully everyone is down for a nap, and I get in a munchy mood.
One of my big goals for 2018 is to lose 40 pounds. I am documenting this journey on my blog primarily for me to see progress, and continue to be encouraged and move forward with this goal. I don’t know if I will actually publish it for people I know to see it.
I am sitting here thinking about some goals I have for 2018, and I am already feeling overwhelmed and discouraged. I thought that it might be a good idea to remember all that was accomplished this last year.
I basically invited myself to party of my friend this year. My husband’s work no longer does Christmas parties, (lame, I know!) and I am in my season of no hosting, so I decided to bum along to their Favorite Things Party.
I remember the first straightener that I ever used was super cheap and looking back at pictures, it made for some super poofy straight hair.
I am sitting alone in my living room. It is quiet. And I have had breakfast before 11.
What I have been up to: Kids are keeping me busy, busy. Not doing a whole bunch, just busy keeping everyone alive and the house functional. Little man is almost 4 months, but I still feel like we are no where near normal. It is time to start some sort of sleep training before I get booted off to the looney bin, but the logistics of letting a baby cry while sisters are sleeping close by is difficult.
So, I started this post almost a month ago. What?!? And I feel like I just stepped a way from all of this to deal with my medical issues. More on that later. Adjusting to a new one in the family is difficult, and I honestly thought I would have arrived by this point, but alas. I AM loving this stage with the kids. The babe is so precious. The girls are a handful, but so funny and sweet. My husband’s job is draining both of us right now, and we are trying to trust in God’s timing for a provision of anew job.
