It’s Wednesday which means that Clara is at preschool, I just put Isabelle down for a nap, and I have just enough time to clean the kitchen and crank out this blog post before she wakes up. Ready… go!
It’s been a month since my last currently post, so it’s time for an update!
// Working on: Sleep training. (Insert dramatic music here.) Seriously, this is a never ending process. We kind of go in waves over here, and we’re in the final stretch of night weaning. Wish us luck.
// Eating: Overnight oats (my favorite daily snack) and a box o’ truffles that I was gifted for my birthday. I’m managing to only eat one or two per day and am quite proud of myself.
// Drinking: Lattes. All of the lattes. Why won’t Isabelle just sleep through the dang night?! Sorry, I promise I’ll stop talking about sleep eventually.
// Reading: I am actually between books right now! (Does anyone have an awesome recommendation for one I should pick up next?) I just finished this one and really liked it.
// Wanting: A necklace kind of like this one with the first letters of my girls’ names. (Mothers Day is coming up, Tim!)
// Listening to: The Up and Vanished podcast. Thanks to a blog reader for recommending this one after I mentioned that I loved S-Town so much!
// Planning: Summer adventures! Now that the sun has shined a day or two in the PNW and the days are longer, I’m ready to start planning fun things to do with the little ones! Watch out world, here we come (whether my family cooperates or not)!
// Loving: SUNSHINE! It’s seriously life and mood changing. C’mon spring, the PNW is so, so, so, BEYOND ready for you. I’m also loving spending more time outside with Clara. She doesn’t love winter weather, but she does pretty well in the spring/summer and I love mini-adventures with her.
// Feeling: Energized! Now that tax season is over I have an extra night in my week (because I’m no longer volunteering) and I’ve been working out semi-consistently and I’m not sick (praise God!) so I’m feeling great and ready to tackle all of the things. However, I’m also feeling a bit overwhelmed because I’ve over-committed just a bit and life is busy busy busy.
// Watching: Hockey playoffs. Although, this could be short lived if the Hawks don’t win A LOT of games in a row! I should also admit that I’m loving the new seasons of the Real Housewives (NY and Potomac)… Is there anything more relaxing than watching trashy TV during naptime? It’s a true luxury.
// Looking forward to: The busyness of spring to be over. As I said, I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed because this time of year is always hectic, and while it’s a lot of fun, I’m ready for the summer and for my life to be a little less structured.
