And I think that happened a little bit last night. Which is awesome. So yay. And thanks.
I decided that despite getting little sleep as it is (because no, my 2 month old doesn't sleep great, ok? Now that we got that over with...), I still need to start getting up early. Earlier than the girls. Maybe even earlier than my husband. Because I need some time when the house is quiet and still and I can get a head of the game. And this is hard for me, because I hate the mornings. But I might actually like them a little better if I do this. Because so far? This morning has been great.
I was able to chug my morning coffee in peace and quiet. I was able to leave a little mirror message affirming my husband, because I'm usually awful at cute things like that and I'm trying to be better. Because I love that man to death, but sometimes suck as a wife. I was able to read. I READ. In peace and quiet. A few chapters of a book I find (so far) to be pretty challenging and inpsiring (The Resolution for Women, if you're wondering). I ate breakfast, alone. I had a few minutes of quiet morning chit-chat with Declan. I was even able to prep Em's breakfast. I did my hair, makeup, and got dressed. I mean--all by 7:30am.
So? It's been a pretty good morning so far.
The sun is shining. Despite the fact it's going to be 80 today (hello! It's FALL!), I'm happy at how this week(end) is shaping up.
I'm making the change. I'm trying, anyway.
So now? I'm going to do something random and fun, and thank you Chelsea for reminding me of this.
Obsessing over: new things I can do to spruce up the house, without paying a fortune. Wanting new curtains, to do little projects, but yet not really having the motivation to do so. Interesting predicament :)
Working on: unloading and putting away all the laundry that was washed LAST weekend--because I'm awesome like that. My only motivation to do so is that we'll need the baskets to do laundry for THIS weekend. ha.
Thinking about: my plan of attack for my two-hour-sans-2-year-old this morning, aka: what should I check off the to-do list while she's at preschool.
Anticipating: some good-for-the-soul family fun this weekend.
Listening to: RockStar Mickey on the iPad....I wonder who that could be. And the coo's of a happy baby Lucy.
Drinking: Coffee and water.
Wishing: my back would get better quicker and that my first run this week (hopefully tomorrow!) will be an awesome one.
Happy Weekend...make something of it ;)
