Out With the Old

I had a routine going that I was quite fond of.  It included exercise, healthy eating, and time to pursue creative endeavors that fill my bucket (like writing and sewing).  All of these things were worked into the schedule of non optional things like spending time with my kids, taking care of the baby, and some household chores.  The house/yard wasn't quite up to par, but hey you can't do EVERYTHING right?

Over the past two (maybe three?) weeks, it's completely disintegrated and that makes me sad.  A lot of different factors contributed to the destruction of my routine, the two most powerful being my getting sick (twice) and the baby switching up her nap schedule.  She was napping three times a day and it seems she's ready to drop that to two, but babies aren't rational so what she's tried to do over the past few weeks is NEVER SLEEP EVER AGAIN.

The madness isn't working for anyone in the house, so we came up with a new plan for a new routine and we'll spend the next week working on implementing that.  I'm looking forward to getting back to some of the activities I enjoy that I've been neglecting (and wrapping up one big project I was really hoping to have finished by the end of April but THAT'S not happening (can you believe tomorrow is May 1st?!)) When it comes to exercise/healthy eating I'm viewing this as just a hiccup that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things.

Anyway, happy weekend all- and wish us luck getting our tiny terrorist <ahem> I mean beautiful precious angel on a new schedule.
