Looking Forward...

I'll be honest, I've been in a total funk lately.  

This stay at home mom stuff can be a bit isolating and lonely.  

I'm not saying I don't love it, because I 100% do.  

I just really need to talk to other adults and have sanity breaks from my kids.  That's where the running & the yoga help me so much.  Not for the loneliness factor, but for the mental part.  It keeps me sane.  And focused on ME, which is such an easy part of the mix to lose when all you do is help these little demanding people all day.  

I didn't go to yoga for a week and I swear I felt like I was falling into a depression.  But I went tonight and I feel so much better.  Yay.

I also got to talk to one other adult today, D'Auna, my sister in law, whom I adore.  She is such a blessing to me.  And the girls can't get enough of Alayah of course too!
The girls & I also went on our typical walk around the block...
Which generally includes a lot of stuff like this, laying on the sidewalk, for no real reason at all.
& picking lots of wishes.
This picture will forever remind me of the way Norah counts right now, and can have no other title then 
"One, Two, Four, Sixteen". 

Tomorrow is going to be a good day, we are headed to the beach.  And things are really looking up, my mood & all. 
: )

I am looking forward to having more time to hang out with you and the kids after I go into 1/2 time. Have fun at the beach.
