August Roundup

ImageDid you miss us? It’s that time again for my once in every 2-4 months post LOL. New apartment and daycare seem to be working out well.  I’m trying to decorate, but I was not born with that womanly skill AT ALL! I need help…desperately! I’m very plain Jane-ish but I want my apartment to look welcoming.  However, it’s hard to stay motivated to decorate with a destructive two-year-old living with you.

Speaking of my angel, the daycare change is going beautifully.  He is still going through his terrible terrific twos (depending on the hour), but he’s growing and becoming more independent each day.  We are pretty much fully potty-trained with accidents only happening overnight once in a blue moon.  I must give props to the daycare for that, because they had me put Alex in underwear after being there for only one week.  There is one kid in his class that I have “issues” with, so I’m going to have Daddy handle that because I am NO GOOD with confrontation…I’m too nice.  I’m trying to be proactive with his learning because he seems to be leaps and bounds ahead of most of the kids in his class, but I don’t want to push him too much either.  It’s a blessing and a curse to have such a smart child. LOL! But seriously, I’m running out of age-appropriate material for him.  If I can hold out until Christmas, my next gift will be the LeapFrog reader or even the LeapPad (my niece has a LeapPad and it’s amazing!).

On the home front, me and the Man are great!  We just celebrated 3 years of marriage (5 years of being together) and it’s still like when we just met.  We are both trying to be healthier, however he seems to be better at it than I am.  It’s kind of hard when you HATE to sweat!  Work is uneventful, but I love it. Health-wise, I’m on my full dose of Rebif and I have good days and bad days. I get a recheck in September, so we’ll see how I’m really doing.  New goals for the end of the year are: lose 10-15lbs, find a babysitter (we need some adult time), get this apartment looking nice, and find a church home up here (yea, I admit we have been slacking on that end).

Any new goals for my friends out there?

  1. Gooo Laura!! Congrats on the move, etc. Okay…you know I had to look up what Rebif was…(I’ve been out of the loop for too long. please forgive me.) I’m with you on the losing weight deal…I need to get back to exercising regularly. When do you need me to come babysit?
