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.
I have taken as much as possible off my plate. We didn’t host Halloweenies and Boogers this year. I will be attending someone else’s cookie exchange instead of hosting one. And I think I will be taking a break from my MOM’s group for a while.
I am having to learn how to say no to myself a lot. Motherhood is sanctifying. Ever. Minute. Fortunately God gives me what I need for that day, like the manna He gave the Israelites in the wilderness. I can’t store it up, I just need to go to God each day to get me through that day.
New Things we are Trying: I found this post on 21 day fix freezer meal and crockpot plan. So, this last weekend I prepped most of the meals, and they are in the freezer. We have done the 21 day fix before, and we have seen results. I love it because you don’t have to buy anything beach body specific. Everything I need is on Pinterest.
I am still plugging away with running. I am so thankful that I have a running partner who lives on my street and has a similar bedtime for her boys. We are on Week 5 of Couch to 5k. We go forward and backwards sometimes and repeat days often. I want to make sure that I am able to run the full distance asked without having to stop. The next assigned day is to run 20 minutes. Not sure we are there yet, so I may add in some extra ones to build us up to that amount.
Things I am looking forward to: The holidays, this season, this time of year. There are so many fun things to do, and plan, and look forward to. I am starting my Christmas list for everyone and will be sharing more on that later.
