So a double stroller is HEAVY! Let's hope I burned more calories and shrunk my post-baby saddle-bags a bit more because of it! Two kids and this big-ass stroller...how did I get here? It's amazing! I walked from my house all the way to our library with a pit-stop in-between at the park. I pointed out lots of earthy things for my daughter. A bunch of floating dead earthworms seemed pretty cool.
In a recent attempt to "reclaim" a tiny pit of myself again I have been working out. (Slim in 6 baby....3x per week goal....get real Debbie Sieber) Starting this blog not only helps with the reclamation thing, but quiets my ever-advice-ful husband. "Look, I got 6 years to figure my "stuff" out before the youngest goes to kindergarten" I tell him. Goal: Never to return to an office again. Being a stay-at-home mom is blissful and boring all at the same time. Even from my O.C.D. self, some days cleaning just doesn't cut it! I run a tight-ship but some nights that glass of wine calls to me and gives me a big warm hug!
So this first post is just that.....a first post. Gettin' my feet wet again with the writing. "Don't think about it so much...just get something down and the rest will come!" (I was a journalism major in college so my professor's words come back to me right now) I feel the words, thoughts, ideas, concerns, etc. bubbling around inside my head....knocking between the constant "mommy requests" from my red-headed 3.5 year old. So come along with me on this journey. I have lots of stuff up my sleeve and this seems easier than a journal for each kid! : )
See you tomorrow....and look, in this economy this writing thing is cheaper than therapy!
