Lovely November

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.
