Hello, I suck at selfies, thus my weird pissed off looking floating head.
Just wanted to drop in and say “hey”. Life has been crazy lately, as it is this time of year. Last week was my 34th birthday and I spent all weekend celebrating, because I like birthdays. My brother and I have birthdays that are three days apart, so when our birthdays fall on a weekend there is lots of very important things to do. Between dinners out and cribbage tournaments, I got the privilege to watch my Finn slay his piano recital. I am beyond proud of hard work, determination and fearlessness. I am so thankful that I got to spend my entire weekend with family and friends, having lots of laughs and eating and drinking lots of delicious things.
We got a treadmill! The struggle to lose and maintain weight is real, my friends. I’ve been walking nearly every day for the two and a half years. I’ve made it through two Minnesota winters thus far, the first in the gym (which I hated) the second outside (which I hated) and this year we got a treadmill (which I love). I can walk when my kids are home, I don’t have to strategically plan around when they will be at school or get up super early before they wake up, I can just go! It’s been a game changer, and I love it.
I’ve been spending lots of time with my G-man. Jeff and I have a lot to think about going into this next year regarding Gus and his education, so we are making sure to do all of our homework (school puns!) so that we can make the right decision for him. I don’t need to get into all the details, but keeping him as my main focus during his hours home from school is number one. He is a pretty great dude and I love hanging with him.
I’ve got a few projects in the works (fingers crossed I’ll be posting both of them next week) but they haven’t gotten to the point where I feel like they are worthy of being shared with you guys just yet. I am very much looking forward to having a week or two off of the usual day-to-day stuff over the winter break. I can’t wait to have all of my boys home for a few weeks, and I intend to soak up every minute that I can with them.
Hope all you guys are doing well and enjoying the season!
