It's been awhile since I've done just a random life update post and today seems like a good day to do just that. So, I'm just going to type and we will see what comes out. How about that?
This summer has either been dreadfully rainy or horribly sticky hot. I haven't done one single fun summery thing with Ethan during our normal weekdays. How terrible is that? I'm just too uninspired to do anything of the sort and then there is the problem of having to figure out what to do with Jack and by the time I'm done thinking about all that I'm just exhausted. So we do nothing. There is always next year right?
I'm anxiously counting down the days until August. I'm not talking about the excited kind of anxious either. It's more like my eyes are starting to dart back and forth in search of an "Oh S*!# bar" to hold onto. The end of the year gets crazy busy with holidays, travel, birthday planning....hold me. I feel nauseous already. And how are we talking about the end of the year ALREADY? I haven't even finished wrapping up my end of the year "to-do" lists from 2012. And didn't I just.give.birth like yesterday? How is my baby going to be one?!? Sigh.
Life has been going fairly well. The husband got a new position, which thank God didn't require us to move, but now will have him mostly working from home. I know I should be leaping for joy over this, but as per usual I can find negativity in almost anything. It's one of my less charming qualities I guess. I've installed (ahem...he installed) multiple baby gates throughout the house which Ethan mastered in 2 seconds flat. I envision chasing children away from the office and constantly trying to hush them all day. We shall see what happens there.
My hormones have been raging lately. I don't know how it works for other people, but I swear there is at least a-whole-nother 3 trimesters after birth known as complete udder joy, hair loss and finally raging hormones that wreck havoc on your emotions and face. I can literally feel things changing and boy has this last wave of hormones been a train wreck. I swear there are times when literally all I can see is red and you better just get out of the way. Sorry fam...hopefully this demon inside of me will be evicted soon.
With that said, I've been trying to get a little more zen. And less fat. I started hot yoga about a month ago and I'm really hoping it will kick start things. I'm tired of wearing the same 5 t-shirts all the time and I refuse to buy anymore "fat" clothes. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to do something other than yoga to get back to my original state, but it's a start and it's making me feel like I am capable of doing more. You've got to start somewhere right?
Speaking of getting my body back, I gave up breastfeeding. It was just getting to the point where we were doing more formula than breastmilk and it's just a slippery slope from there for me. We almost made it 7 months and I'm proud of that. Plus, Jack grew teeth. Teeth scare me. He's a biter. No bueno. No milko. Sorry little dude. It was sweet while it lasted, but it's time to move on.
I think that's all for today. As you can see, not much has been happening. Enjoy your day! Hopefully it's not raining where you are.
P.S. If you haven't joined Amazon Prime....do it. I'm totally addicted to it and the Subscribe and Save program. Two day shipping plus other benefits save me from running out to the store with two kids all the time. I buy everything from Amazon. No, really. Everything. If they sold produce...I'd order it. They have a free 30 day trial going on right now. Click the banner. Make it happen. Try it, you will love it. Promise.
