My Life is Not Glamorous

I can't stand the blog languishing for a week with no new content, yet I feel as if I am in the same place as always lately, with nothing to say.  I'm doing what any mom does, whether she stays home or works outside the home.  I'm making breakfast (most mornings anyway) and lunches and snacks.  I'm changing diapers and finding shoes and putting clothes on kids who need help with that kind of thing.  I'm trying to come up with something for dinner (I still sort of plan meals for the week, but need to be more disciplined) and make sure the living room and kitchen are at least neat before Travis comes home. 

I am doing something fun and new for me, but I don't want to write about it for a couple more weeks.  Travis is excited about it too, since it means my being online might have a purpose some of the time.

I'm still exercising, though not every day.  I missed Easter Sunday and ever since then it has been hard to do it every day.  Most weeks I still go to the gym or do something at home at least four days a week, but I need to up the intensity.  I've hit a plateau and want to get past it and back down to the weight I was at before I had Benjamin.

We're having some discipline issues with the kids, so I'm working on that.  I did a really good job of keeping my Lenten fast regarding the internet, most of the time, but I've fallen back into old habits.  Things were better when I was more intentional with my time. So I guess I've written my way into acknowledging I have nothing new to say because I'm not living enough life to have stuff to share.  Hmmm.

This is kind of a downer of a post.  So here is a silly picture.

  1. Excited to hear what the new and fun thing for you is! Keep your chin up Momma, you're doing a great job! xoxo

  2. I don't think this was a downer post -- you're just in a holding pattern for the status quo. Not a bad thing, but also not a very exciting thing. Sometimes you just have to keep on keepin' on, which is not exciting to write about but probably more important ;)

    And I love the sleeping with goggles shot. She really is a doll.

  3. Ditto to every last word! Here's to more living, for both of us. :)

  4. Oh, the goggles. Love it. KT wears hers around the house all the time. I don't think you're 'not living enough life!' But sometimes it's like you say, just the normal stuff. Can't wait to hear about your fun project!

  5. Here is a link to an audio from a spiritual group which is getting a lot of attention right now, they say that Humanity needs to know the truth. I really liked this part and felt special energies like never before : Hello Pope Benedict. I have observed your actions since the time we were together at the same special mid week mass given by Pope John Paul II almost 30 years ago. Now, you are already aware of certain parts of my prophecy for you, since it involves “The Three Secrets of Fatima” and St. Malachy’s Prophecies.


I'm dying to know what you have to say, so talk already! Thanks!
