settle in

I have things to blog about and show pictures all the fabulous christmas celebrations we had and my birthday and of course our happy new year...lots of sweet baby moments...interesting toddler many things...

The last of our holiday guests departed this morning...Lucas is 6 weeks old on Tuesday...I am feeling a little more human all the time.

My January resolutions are:
I plan to go hardcore with Judah on potty training...he is SO ready.
I want to get into a routine, again for Judah, he is a mess after the last couple months of crazy schedules and life changes. Time to lock into a routine that sets him up for success.
I want to get back into couponing, I found out I can order my groceries online at Harris Teeter and use if I can manage to do these things from the comfort of my home, it may actually be possible.
I have a couple areas of my house that need to be re-organized...and decluttered. I don't know if this is even possible but it's going on the list anyhow...aim high people, aim high.

My life resolution:
To create a space where I can create. I can't leave anything laying around or out in my house for very long...if I do, Judah will ruin it or Lance will want me to clean it up. Those two forces are not to be reckoned with, not by me. So how can i create a win, win? well...I'm not sure. I guess that's the challenge. I want to scrapbook, I want to blog, I want to smash, I want to sew, I want to have piles, I want to leave a cup in one spot for a week and not use a coaster. I have goals people ;) ha.

My 2012 resolution:
To settle into life as a mom of two.

I wish this blog "flowed" or was more coherent...but the fact of the matter is, I have had to stop and do other things at least 5x...and I'm tired. Once Lucas goes to sleep (it's looking like it might be soon) I plan to join him in dream land! Judah has been asleep for a bit (thankfully no puking tonight...we've had way to much of that this week). Lance comes home in the morning...I wish he was coming home to a tidy home, but reality is that if it's going to be more tidy, he's gonna have to do it or watch the kids so I can...they double team me and I am lucky to get half of something done at I'm not complaining, just stating the facts of my life as it is currently.
I'm officially on that note!

Sweet dreams blog land!

First of all, Merry Flumas. It was a dooser, was it not?!! Ivar threw up seven nights in a row. He was fine in the daytime, hydrated, on the brat diet, and each night just lost his lunch. gross. Last night was our first victorious night and all I can say is, I feel your pain my friend. What a Christmas to remember.

I am watching you as you adjust to two. I can't fathom it right now. It feels bigger than adjusting to one. For real. I try to think about what it will be like not to be able to nap when the baby is's overwhelming, and I'm only 12 pregnancy weeks along!

I, too, am looking for routine. Goals and structure. Isn't it crazy how life gets hairy and order is what we crave? Happy 2012! Thinking of you and all the adjustments of having another baby. I'll be taking notes.
