we're going to buy a pony!*
Good morning, dear ones. How are you? How was your Valentine's Day? Mine kind of sucked for a while after the fun morning but it came around again in the afternoon. Patrick cuddled me for a long time and I drifted off for a little nap in his arms. Very sweet. That being said, I was ready to kick him to the curb this morning and quite happy that he was going back to work. :) He basically slept for most of the last 2 days and his back is better but not a whole lot so. :( I do feel so bad for him. He saw his doctor and a chiropractor and got some good pain meds so hopefully he will continue to heal, albeit slowly.
I commented on the post but wanted to say thank you here for all the sweet comments on Valentine's Day. I have come to love celebrating this sweet little holiday because A) James loves that breakfast deal so much and B) I can spend a couple hours preparing and cleaning up and that's it! It's over. Kind of nice. :)
Speaking of James, OH MY GOSH. That boy is causing some kind of ruckus over here right now. I don't have the energy or inclination to go into all of it (you're welcome) but let's just say it's a bad one. I know it will pass, though, and I am really thankful for this opportunity to be a better parent.
KIDDING! :) We are just tightening our parenting belts and trying out a few new tools. Wish us luck.
I took Nicky to Toddler Time yesterday (see above) and really enjoyed myself. Nicky did, too. He is such a little muncher. Right now he is watching Sesame Street. ISN'T THAT AWESOME?? I think so.
I will tell you about my goal right now: I want to exercise every day for the next 15 days (at least), which will make it 21 days in a row. 21 days to making it a habit for me again. I am 6 for 6 days right now and feeling really good about it. I am loving the aching muscles and haven't even minded (too much) getting up at 6am to do it. I was going to wait until after the wedding, when we'll be up in Duluth for 5 days, to start but this way makes it more challenging, I suppose. My dad has a treadmill and I plan on using it. :)
I'm not sure what's on deck for today but it needs to be something fun. I need something fun today. Nicky, too. Maybe we'll go buy a pony!
Oh, the only other area of my life that needs updating is ebay! Sadly, I only made 12 bucks last week. boo! But I am not giving up and have quite a few auctions ready to go on Sunday night and hope to do a few more before then, too.
I hope you all have super awesome days! Or at least nice ones. :)
