If we were having coffee together this morning (although per usual, I wouldn't be drinking coffee because gross😉) these are a few things I'd probably chat with your about....
+ Our house! Well.. actually it's not our house anymore. We closed on it! Got to chat with the buyers for a little bit (super nice people) and we are now renting from them! Honestly, it still doesn't seem real. I am going to cry like a baby when we officially move out.
+ RV living - here we go again! Although we've lived in the camper many many days/months before... this time is different. We don't have a place to call "home" or go back to. I think what makes me the most nervous about it is the weather could get cold fast and we won't be able to stay in it too much longer after the cold weather hits. Then the pressure is on to find some place to go!
+ Single Parenting - the end is near!!!! Last week was the last 6 day binge of single parenting I'll experience... and the next two weeks are short ones! Then, once we move out... we will officially live together full time and Michael will come home every. single. day. Therefore, zero single parenting for this Mama! This is big. Scary, but exciting. 😆
+ Mason sleeping - I just can't win with this child! He did SO good for about 6 weeks where he was sleeping through the night or at least 6-8 hours at a time. I enjoyed it SO much and I started to feel human again. BUT... we're back to miserable Mason waking up a gazillion times a night and zombie Mommy every day. Yes, I do believe in the cry it out method. However that does not work with this child. I've left him to cry for an hour and a half more times than I care to admit. Now I'm at a loss with that to do so I just keep going into his room every time he cries and most days he just winds up in bed with me. Which doesn't even solve the problem of his crying, so that's just fun. At least he's cute. Bedhead and all.
Yes my house is a toy tornado. Judge away.
+ Mornings - Due to above mentioned anti sleeping kid... I cannot get up to an alarm for the life of me. Then I get so down on myself for not getting up before the kids to have some time to myself and I tell myself oh I'll get up tomorrow... nope. The biggest problem is that I shut my alarm off every single day and I don't even know I'm doing it. Please, motivate me to wake up in the morning to something other than a screaming child.
+ SeneGence - I've mention my "beauty biz" here and there and you all know how much I love the LipSense. Actually, I originally signed up to be a distributor solely because of the LipSense... but I've fallen in absolute love with the skin care! A goal of mine this year was to take better care of my skin now that I'm thirty (should of done that a long time ago). I never wanted to spend high dollar on products and when I did, I hated the smell or feel on my skin. SeneGence saved the day! My blemishes, red spots, and sun spots have lessened, my skin is so much softer, clearer, and overall a healthier appearance. The bonus is that I haven't worn foundation (just Color Correcting Tinted Moisturizer for a sheer coverage) in at least two months! I'm seriously addicted! If I can help you pick out some amazing skin care products, message me!
+ Exercise - It's been about a month of putting much needed effort into an exercise regimen and I wish I had some wonderful progress before/after pictures to show you... but I don't. You see, after having Mason, my recovery from my second c section seemed to be taking much longer. I wound up having diastasis recti which slowed my ability to get back in shape. I've hard a hard time getting rid of that post baby belly and my belly button is still inside out. After my month long effort with exercising, I was having more pain in my stomach and in the scar area of my c sections. I went to the doctor last week to be sure I wasn't harming my body. Turns out I have a hernia. I was kind of bummed, yet relieved to have an answer. For now, I'll just have to embrace the way my stomach looks and I'll keep doing exercises that are acceptable for the DR and hernias. Despite not much results in the areas I was hoping for, I'm still enjoying having a little exercise routine and doing something for "me".
+ Remi Roo - You guys, I can't even. She is getting SO big! She's doing excellent with her potty training (undies or pull ups all day with zero accidents except long trips away from home) and we are so proud of her! She loves to be outside or when I take her to the farm to see the animals. She's learning about the vegetables growing in the garden and it's probably the highlight of her day to "teck da dar-den". She has such a personality (sass on sass on sass) and I just absolutely adore listening to her talk. I seriously find myself video recording her non stop because I don't want to lose these memories. At night when she's in bed, I find myself watching all the videos from the day. I clearly have a problem! Ha! Such a big girl, it melts my Mama heart!
Well, that's a lot and enough about me! What's going on with you?! Need a refill?! 😉
