Not Enough Time In The Day

I feel like I can’t keep up with this blog as much as I did when I first started it.  I think part of it has to do with my lil’ girl getting more and more active every day!  The only time I get back to the office is when Lauryn and Lloyd are sleeping and then it’s not too long before I go to bed too.  It’s also partly because of my new obsession.  I’ve taken up loom knitting.  It is so fun and easy!!  I got the looms three days ago and I’ve made three hats and a scarf.  It goes by so quickly and I’m using up a lot of scrap yarn that’s been accumulating over the years!

I can’t believe how fast Lauryn is developing.  She stands on her own for the longest time now and she’ll take about 10 steps on her own between me and Lloyd.  Won’t be long now!  Her sixth tooth has broken through, thankfully, she had been waking up a lot from this one.  She’s slowly getting interested in our food.  I try just about everything and she’s become very picky about what she eats these days and that frustrates me so much.  I just want to make sure she’s getting the nutrients she needs.  We’re getting there though.  Thanks to the girls at the MMC who made me feel better about it and let me know that some of their kids did the same thing.  Lauryn is also trying to say more words.  Her “thank you” went from “takoo” to “thak-en”, she’s still saying dog (sounds German like dach :) ), and she’s working on up, down, baby, no and nose.  Our favorite is kitty kitty.  Whenever we say it to her or she sees the cat, she clears her throat.  Lord knows where she came up with that but apparently that means kitty kitty to her LOL.  Silly girl.

I’ve decided to go on my own little weight loss journey.  When I look in the mirror, I see that I have some areas to work on but when I’ve seen pictures of myself that were recently taken, it’s almost a shock!  I am not at all happy with how I look and I need to take control of it and get happier with me.  We brought the eliptical machine up from the basement and it’s here in the office now.  I was on it for 15 minutes today (first time since just after Lauryn was born) and that kicked my butt.  I found America’s Next Top Model on the computer to watch while I do it…I figure what’s a better motivator than a bunch of skinny model wannabe’s? :)   I also want to keep my portions of food in check.  I don’t eat too much unhealthy food, but I do think the quantity is a problem.  I might make a category on here just for it….we’ll see.

I also want to apologize for not being on top of my comments lately.  I am sorry.  As I mentioned I’ve been busy with Lauryn and looming and I’ve become a lame blogger!  I’m going to stay on top of that from now on!

Thank you for visiting my blog! Feel free to look around. You may find some yummy recipes to try, fun crochet patterns, tips and tricks, and silly things about my family. What you probably won't find are deeply profound posts or political rants. That's just not how I roll. :)

    You are anything but lame my friend. You have to take care of you and your family first and foremost…It’s always a pleasure when you do post. Just wait to see how fast Lauryn grows up. Before you know it…she’s an adult. Cherish these times always. Good luck with getting in better shape. I should also, but I’m to damn lazy. Oh well. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours :)

  • Cary:

I expected this to be funny, which it was, hilarious in parts, but it was a lot better than I thought it would be.
