Wow. It's been a while. I have been very busy, and usually pass out at night sitting up, with a kid or two in my lap. It makes it very hard to update this blog. I apologize to anyone who actually reads it, if there is anyone left! I downloaded the Blogger app to my phone though, so hopefully that helps ;)
Matthew and I have been trying out different things, but we really haven't been pushing ourselves like we should be. The weather finally warmed up though, so we have been walking a lot. We did an MS walk, we walk around town, and today we finally started the Couch to 5k. Walking is one of my favorite forms of exercise. Plus I finally kicked Lucas off the boob, so hopefully my metabolism will speed back up again. That would be lovely. Our nightly walks help him sleep too :)
Unfortunately, Zumba has to be on hold for now. I LOVE going, and miss it very much, but Lucas is just too crazy. It's not fair to the other people in class. Lucas disrupts us way too much. My dear sweet friend Jessica never says anything, but I feel bad. I am hoping that one of these weeks I can get Lucas to sleep before Zumba, so that I can go. I would love to be able to just leave him home with my husband, even awake, but sadly that is not how my life works. I don't get to do things without my kids. So, no Zumba for me right now :( My husband can do whatever he wants though, and frequently leaves for hours, or even days, on his motorcycle. Speaking of that...
Last weekend my husband went out of town for Memorial Day weekend. He was gone from Friday morning until Monday afternoon. It was just me and the three kids. We had such a great time! We hung out with friends, went for walks, and completely cleaned and organized the entire house. Friday we had dinner, and watched Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. Saturday we had friends over in the morning, cleaned the entire downstairs, went for a long walk, then my daughter had a friend here for a sleepover. Sunday we had more friends over, went for ice cream, cleaned the entire upstairs, went to dinner, then my daughter had another friend over for the night. I stayed up way too late chatting with my friend on Facebook that night, considering we got up at 7 am every morning, and went to bed very late after tons of cleaning and walking all day. But that's okay ;) Then Monday all four kids and I went uptown for the Memorial Day event my town does. Then we went to the beach for a bit, then went and barbecued at my mom's.
I am going to be walking every single day while the kids are at school, plus doing the C25k with Matthew at night. There is only two weeks of school left though, so after that Ill have to drag them along too ;)
I do wish that I had a walking buddy, or two, but that's okay. I am used to walking alone. I have music if I need it. Plus Lucas is a chatterbox! My husband and I still plan to buy a pool too, so that will be nice.
Okay, I think that's everything that has been happening around here these days. Hope everyone is doing well!
