I’ve been super lucky to have my sister off this week to give me a hand with Olivia…yet this still was a completely exhausting week! Not really sure how, but I think it’s from not having a break last weekend because we were away. Lots of driving + being away + not having any “me” time + teething baby = tired mama. This weekend I’ll catch up though!
Blogging has seriously fell to the waste side…but something’s gotta give. I’ve got a whole post dreamed up in my head about being a stay at home working mom…but I haven’t gotten the words out yet. Someday soon!
5 Random Thoughts
- I’ve been trying to lay off the dairy in an effort to get ride of my eczema. It’s been helping, but I really miss it. I’m off it kind of indefinitely but I will have some here and there. I want to go to an allergist to see if there is anything else I’m allergic to, but it’s not very high on my to-do list.
- I also need to reduce the amount of coffee I drink. I always drink half caf, but really it’s still too much. It’s my vice, for sure.
- I’ve been recording the Today Show so I can watch it (and fast forward) while I work out. It makes me really happy.
- This weekend I’m REALLY looking forward to running outside. I haven’t run outside since we went to South Carolina. It’s been way too long.
- Next week is our 5 year anniversary! Can’t even believe it. <3
