Hey guys! Happy Monday!
I hope you have had a great start to your week. I had some trouble sleeping last night. It happens randomly, but I think last night was due to excitement over the blog. I have so many things I want to tell you guys! My post On Infertility was difficult to write, but I have so much more to say!
Okay, back to today. I woke up a little before 6:00, right before the alarm went off. I don’t know why, but it seems so much worse to wake up and find out you could sleep for 15 more minutes, but can’t go back to sleep! I like waking up before Matilda; it gives me time to do my physical therapy exercises and eat breakfast without a toddler crawling all over me. Breakfast this morning was a pumpkin oatmeal pancake with apples- I broke the blueberry streak!
Baby girl slept until 8:00! Who is this baby?!? After some milk and baby snuggle time we did some laundry…
It was raining this morning, but the sun came out and it looks gorgeous outside. I think we will go for a walk and get a little vitamin D.
The evening will likely be similar to last night, but with more reading. I FINALLY finished The Paris Wife; it did not used to take me so long to read a book! I really like reading historical fiction, especially about Europe in the 1920’s and 30’s. John and I backpacked through Paris, London, and Rome a few years ago. It was an awesome experience, and I love any excuse to read about those cities!
I just started Liane Moriarty’s book What Alice Forgot and I really like it! I loved The Husband’s Secret. Her writing style is very easy to read and entertaining.
Have a great day! I am working on a DIY page to share some of my homemade cleaners, such as laundry detergent, cloth diaper detergent, and all-purpose cleaners. I am also going to create a page related to my physical therapy exercises and share what I am doing to correct my diastasis recti. Please check back!
5 things I am grateful for:
1.) Being able to hold a side plank 45 seconds with good form. It’s small progress, but still progress.
2.) Being consistent with my 10,000 steps- be my Fitbit friend! I need some inspiration and motivation!
3.) Coffee. That is all.
4.) This blog. I love having a place to write, even if no one reads it.
5.) A clean house- I hate the process, but I love the result.
