In case anyone was wondering...

Working out to "30 Day Shred" only a few months after having a baby is completely different than working out to the same video 4 years after said baby.  Even though my workouts have been few and far between - it wasn't as hard as I remember.

I feel like I'm starting to come out of some kind of haze that I didn't really know I was in.  In some ways I feel like I had PTSD from all of the moving (3 times in 7 months).  But, now that I'm feeling settled I'm starting to regroup a bit.  And, I am no longer saving boxes.

I feel like writing more (see above)Again.  I don't think I'll do the write every day like before, but I'm going to try and write more often.

I'm feeling the need to learn something new.  I think I might take voice lessons.

My family is growing up.  And I have to remind myself that I am at the peak of everything right now.  Peak laundry, peak eating (actually I think we've got room to grow here), peak grocery shopping, peak noise, etc.  My oldest will leave for college in less than 6 months.  I have a feeling that once she goes, time will speed up exponentially.

I'm currently on the "no treats" diet again.  Except this time, I'm allowing myself to eat treats on the holidays.  I want to enjoy all the pies I'm making for Thanksgiving. (Christmas lasts the entire month of December, right?)

Sometime, I'm going to post the list of all the crazy things that are said in my house.  Here's an example:  "Don't cut your ham with your elbow!"  We have a lot of those.

Also, I'm not posting this link to Facebook like I sometimes do.  I think that's the only time people read my blog and I don't feel like sharing so much this time.

  1. :) Nice post. I am trying to start blogging more myself. Need to just sit down and write and not just plan the writing.

  2. Seriously, college? Has it really been that long since we were in the same ward? And I can totally relate to the whole move a lot in a short amount of time. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! I'm glad to see you're making a comeback. :)

  5. Hey, look. People still read even when you don't post it to FB. Just coming out of a current baby haze myself. Totally get it. Getting in shape just in time for winter when it's too cold to run outside. I'm pretty sure the rest of my haziness won't leave for another 10 years or so.

  6. I'm pretty sure my leaving won't help with the noise levels; in fact, they might even go up after I'm gone!
