New Journey

Oh my goodness, things got busy around here.

November-December, we were all sick and had family in town. January, L started preschool and we (re)started Dave Ramsey’s “Get out of debt” plan. February-March we were all sick again. We caught some 24 hour flu bug and then colds. The cold turned into pneumonia where A was hospitalized for a week and then Z, L & I had ear infections.

Oh my gosh it’s been insane! But, we’re all healthier, home now and loving it.

I have a list of goals that I am going to start working into life and one of those is to get back into blogging. It’s very therapeutic–believe it or not. But, the rest of what I had planned for today will have to wait until later.

Z is crying and I am going to guess it’s time for lunch and a nap for him (even though it’s almost 5pm).

Lots more to come later.

Blah Mornings…

When we moved in, I totally Mr. that we would have the place unpacked and totally done by the end of the month. Well, he is home the next few days, so we’re going to knock it out.

Today will be to finish downsizing the boys’ toys and take our bedroom back. There has been all kinds of food, nasty kids’ cups, extra furniture, etc. that doesn’t need to be in there and my “paradise” has been lost.

Our bedroom has always been theĀ ONE place that I needed clean so I could sleep and have some downtime, but I’ve been staying up until I am falling asleep just to avoid it all. I have tried hard to clean our bedroom and keep the kiddos out (Mr’s computer is in there now and they like watching YouTube videos with him). But, it hasn’t worked AT ALL! So, a new plan needs to be made.

Though, part of today will be some downtime to help me from getting sick. Woke up this morning to a sore throat, stuffy nose and just overall feeling crummy.

Any woo–kiddos and I need breakfast and my to-do list only seems to be growing. Here’s to hoping we get more done today than I think might happen.
