Dear Normal, I Miss You. Love, Aims.
Hello Blog. Long time no visit.
To say that life around here has been crazy lately would be quite the understatement. But I know it is the same story for everyone. I am no different. But honestly? I am SO ready for some "normal". Whatever that is.
We had a wonderful Christmas. We got to go see all our relatives and spent 9 days away from home accomplishing it all. I have found that Claire is quite content at home. She loves to visit all her friends and family, but wants to end each day in her "purple bed". (she has purple sheets) She is a good traveler and handles all the change quite well, but there were many times in our days away that she cried for home. Once we actually got home, she was almost euphoric as she was put to bed in her own room again. It was really cute.
Here it is January 10th and I think we finally have the promise of a regularly scheduled week ahead of us. I am almost scared to type that because I THOUGHT that was the case last week too. No dice.
I have seriously, SERIOUSLY got to get back to my work outs. I gained 6 POUNDS over the holidays. Good grief! I am squeezing into every pair of pants I own (all three of them) and each pair is screaming at me. It is quite sad, really. I have gift cards galore waiting in the wings for me to lose enough weight to justify the purchase of my much-delayed, post-pregnancy wardrobe. I was almost there before the holidays. But now? Sigh.
We have started a crazy-intense work out program. It is supposed to get you in shape in 90 days. Granted, that assumes that you stay consistent with the program for the entire 90 days. Wish me luck. Consistency in work out routines has never been my strong suit. But I am currently (counting the afore mentioned holiday weight) 13 pounds heavier than I was before I had Claire and I am DETERMINED to get that weight off. When I do, I am celebrating with some serious clothes shopping. If you know me at all, you know how badly I must need new clothes because I have never gotten excited about shopping. That is a girl gene that I missed somehow.
Now that I am back and the laundry is caught up (mostly) I should be able to return to my 3-posts-a-week promise on yea old blog. Here's hoping! (fingers crossed)
