One. I haven't blogged since the day I turned thirty. Purely a coincidence, I did not have a mid/third life crisis.
Two. Christmas was a blur of excitement, a multitude of unwrapping, a million get togethers and one blowup.
Three. Alice and Isla say things, like actual words, I'm impressed (and yeah I know, your child says things too, but you too are impressed, I know you are)
Four. I haven't written anything in my first draft since the day I turned thirty, well until today. I put pen to paper and got out 600 words, it's a small start but it's in the right direction. I will finish.
Five. I have decided to get up earlier, 5:05 am to be specific. (I always set the alarm for a non hour, it seems less harsh for some reason). I am getting up early for pure self preservation. I need time to just be by myself, time to do some yoga, read a book, drink some tea.
Six. I need a trick to get Isla walking. Do you know one? She is physically capable, hell we have video footage of her in the act a couple months ago. She lacks confidence or motivation, we're not quite sure. She can take her sweet time in my opinion but she is way past frustrated.
Seven. I ordered a Clairsonic. Do you have one? My skin has gone all hormonal on me post weaning.
Eight. Today I dressed three one year olds up in their snow suits, boots, hats, dreaded mittens, pulled on my snow pants and headed to the backyard in minus 20 degree weather to test out the new sleds on the giant snow slide Andrew built. Twelve rides where I climbed through several feet of snow with a toddler and sled, listened to two crying children while the one en route laughed all the way down the slide. Fun was had by all. Personally, I think that exertion was somewhere up there with running a marathon, no?
Nine. We are booking Maine again, I love Bar Harbor and this time friends are coming with us.
Ten. The bachelor, tonight, enough said
bonus... I smashed my camera lens on New Year's Eve day....the universe does not want me to take nice pictures.
I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Years and can't wait to catch up on all of your blogs!
