So I am still a slacker. I have started about 6 posts and not finished one of them in the last month. I have so many ideas that I would love to get out of my head.
We have had a crazy to weeks. Since my last post B and I came down with a stomach bug. Not pleasant. First time in 12 years that I have thrown up. The Monday after that X started his new daycare.
The new daycare so far is awesome. Everyday not only do they write down when he ate and slept but I get details about what he played with, what toys he liked that day. Getting just a little view into what he was doing during the day gives me so much more peace. X never missed a beat. I was really worried about the transition, but he has just rolled with it and is doing great.
Last weekend my sister and her family came to visit. It is so nice to have visitors. They had not seen the house yet. Though I was glad to have a nice quiet weekend this weekend. X and I did go to a going away party for a co-worker. It was a nice time and I am going to miss S, she was my mommy buddy at work. No one else I am friends with has kids so they don't always "get it".
B and I have really been struggling with the whole division of labor. I feel like I have too much on my shoulders and get overwhelmed. He feels like he does everything. It has been the source of a lot of bad feelings and arguments. It isn't like we live in a house that just has piles and piles of stuff, junk or filth everywhere. You know the kind of thing you see on TV and shake your head in wonder how people could live like that. But there are things that need to be done that if they don't get done make life much more difficult. Getting out of the house in the morning is our greatest challenge.
I have all of these grand ideas of what I want to do and how I want my life to be. I just cant seem to get there. So I am going to try to take this in baby steps.
1) I want to accomplish Something every day. Not the regular bottles/ dinner/ laundry chores but something extra. This might include cleaning bathroom, dusting, de-cluttering. But if I did one thing every day the house would look pretty good.
2) I want to get into better shape. I have a great dislike for sweating. But I could lift weights or do yoga. My goal for July is 2 nights a week.
3) I need to take time for myself. I need to schedule this with B. I need some time to myself. Currently the only alone time I get is grocery shopping, and I don't think that counts. At least a 2 hour stretch a week to do something. Read, scrapbook just something that I like to do.
