Hello Blog!!

Wow you've been neglected. I think I'm in the process of re-prioritizing my life, not in a formal way where I have a definite plan, but rather just thinking a lot about how I'm spending my time. If anything, I came to the realization that I wasn't doing enough of this:


And taking enough photos of my own family! So I'm working on changing that a little! ;)

Sunday morning and all is quiet...

Sunday morning and it's just Eric, Madison and I (the two older girls are at grandma's for a sleepover), it's quiet peaceful and a little lonely... but only just a little! I guess this is what life is like for those who have 1 child. Calm, manageable and relaxing on weekend mornings. We can actually do things for ourselves! However, never in a million years would I trade in the craziness and the wonderful things that I do miss this morning for anything. The things to miss are the beautiful little smiles that greet us, the giggles between sisters, Madison's clear LOVE for her sisters - she giggles and screams when they are in the room, and follows them everywhere; I also miss the details, Gillian's puffy blond hair and her cuddly little 3 year old body, Abigail's wonderful smile, her square feet (!!) and her "conversation"; I'm pretty sure they had a great time sleeping over and are probably running around their house as I type. So fun was had by all, on both sides - peace and quiet here, fun and adventure there.

Some photos from Halloween last weekend:

I jiggle...

I've never jiggled before, even when I was a little on the heavy side at the end of high school/university. Back then I was at least strong... soccer, rowing and working out at least once a day certainly helped, and as a result I was heavy, but at least I didn't jiggle. Now, when I run I feel things moving that really shouldn't be moving, namely my butt. And parts of me are soft, and squishy where before I had a little bit of definition... just a little bit. Otherwise, I don't feel over weight, I just feel weak. I get out of breath faster, I can't bike as fast, and I get tired holding Madison (who for the record, weighs 28lbs at 13 months... cute little porker!! :))

I know exactly what I need to do, I even have access to a great gym at work with every kind of machine available to me. I am just so tired all the time, I've become lazy (well ok, find... lazier!) I'd rather sit on my butt eating M&Ms (kind of like right now). I just wish my motivation hormone, gene, DNA or whatever would just get kick started.. but it hasn't happened yet. It was turned off over the past year, I think having baby #3 turned it off. And I'm afraid my body will be too deteriorated (cursed with really bad knees, stiff toe, and loose ligaments) when that motivation button has actually been pushed... my fingers are crossed that a good base that I had will carry me through....

Time for another bag of M&Ms....
