Accomplishing random goals

I wrote earlier this week about some household projects that I wish would be done by the time I went back to work next week (a little late to plan, right?). I am proud to announce that I actually did finish one of them with Jared’s help! We had alllllll these bushes in the front yard that were huge and appeared to be swallowing our house. 

We now have a window! Ha okay the window was already there, but two days ago nobody could see it because the rhododendrons were swallowing it. It may not look like much but it was a lengthy process involving borrowing the neighbors sawzall, digging with a shovel, and having my dad over to help haul in his truck. It took some real elbow grease (can you say that for outdoor work?) to get the tree-sized plants cut out and hauled off. So, success with one of my vague wannabe goals! Yay! 

I also went running yesterday and Monday. I’m hoping to run this afternoon too, which I wouldn’t normally be able to do, but felixs old babysitter wanted to spend some time with him so I’ll have some time with just one baby for a while. Another yay! Being with both all day is awesome and exhausting and I’m looking forward to a little break. 


Sebi and I have been bonding over the last couple days between endless nursing sessions and longer awake time. 

My teeny baby is almost two months! 😩 I knew it would fly by but it is quite sad and happy all at once. Time goes on whether  we want it to or not. 

That goes back to the quote “6 months will pass whether you’re working out or not.” So, might as well work out, hold my babies, and take a million pictures as life changes. 

One last small celebration today:

Yesterday I gave up my right before bed / bedtime nursing treat of a no sugar added Klondike in order to stay in the green. It was worth it. I didn’t even dream about ice cream 😜
