We've had lots of birthday celebrations around here, a cold snap, and this week spring will soon feel just around the corner. The kids have had a few of their toys back and are doing a better job of cleaning up.
I am slowing working toward some of my goals for 2015. Brielle is almost sleeping through the night. This is huge for me as I'm starting to feel like a human again. I say "almost" sleeping through the night because she still wakes up around 1 a.m. every night, but after that, she is usually sleeping until 7 a.m. She has still had a few pretty bad nights, but those nights that she sleeps 6 hours are all I need to feel incredibly better. She is not weaned yet, but I'm hoping to work hard toward that this month. Nate (I've suddenly started calling him this, mostly by accident, but it seems to be sticking for some reason...) is still in the process of being potty trained but has made significant progress. I've been working on making a little bit of side income by babysitting here and there. I am hoping to figure out a way to make a little more consistent side income eventually, but this is helping out lots in the meantime. This month I am going to start tackling my health. I am frustrated by the fact that I am pretty much at my highest non-pregnancy weight ever. This past year, exercising and eating well were at the bottom of my priority list. They weren't even on my priority list. I did absolutely nothing for exercise, and my diet was horrible. This week I am starting my own "diet" plan, so to speak, but I won't say much about it until I know it's working! Don't worry, it's nothing unheard of or unhealthy. At least, I don't think so. I have at least 30 pounds to lose...hopefully I will accomplish this in time for my 10 year anniversary.
That's about all for now,
