One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

random thoughts

3 more weeks until I go back to work. I think I will feel much more ready this time... Noah is a lot bigger baby at this point than Evelyn was, and I am also used to the daycare routine and know what it's like when I drop them off.

I am getting the copper IUD on Thursday. I decided no hormones was the best route for me. I am a little afraid of the cramping and insertion pain... I hope it works for me without too many side-effects... Wish me luck!!

I'm really looking forward to our trip to Michigan!! We are taking the red-eye (with two kids in tow -- wish us well!!) on Tuesday night. I'm anxious to see my family and friends. My dad and brother haven't even met Noah yet... I haven't seen them since Christmas! It is tough living so far away :(.

Weight loss is going well again. The gym definitely helped. However, my gym time has cut into some of my chore time. I used to get a lot of things done in the evenings (laundry, cleaning, paying bills, etc) It is so hard to balance everything!! There isn't enough time in the day. Sometimes I feel like I don't stop all day long until my head hits the pillow. I better get used to it -- going back to work is just going to add more to the mix!!

Its so hard to do it all - I totally feel your pain. Its also hard to be far away from family ( I feel your pain on that one as well). Sometimes (a lot of times) I think that if we lived closer to family it would be easier to do it all. I know if my mom was close by she would watch the kids as much as she could and then I would have more time to do everything I needed to. Oh well. Thank God for holidays and vacation time!
