Day 3


So, I'm setting myself a 30 day challenge - to exercise a bit every day (I'm starting my day with 25 minutes of yoga and then later during the day, I'm doing a 20-30 minute fitness DVD), and to clean something every day.  I'm tired of feeling like my house isn't clean, so it's time to do something about it.  I have so much more time at home than my husband, so it's not that I think it's "my job" to do it because I'm the wife and mom, but rather, there is an infinite amount of work to do, and I want (and need) to be doing more. It'll help all of us!  So, I'm on Day 3.  Day 2 was not as successful as I wanted it to be, but today is a new day!  I'm not going to let me thoughts of "ARGH YOU FLAKED ON DAY *TWO*!!" get me off track.  So, today I'm going to clean my bathrooms.   I am being very, very careful with the exercise stuff too.  Given my history, I cannot jeopardize my eating disorder recovery for this.

I have been working on the Baby Surprise Jacket and am close to done.  I finally figured out how it should all be folded and came to the unescapable conclusion (which I knew all along, damnit), that it is way, way too small.  I'm following the pattern recs for a newborn size, and it might fit my daughter's 15" bitty baby.  MAYBE.  I love the yarn, so I'm going to rip it out and use it for socks.  The baby (NOT MINE!!) is due April 3, so I have some time.  I think I'll run to Michael's this morning and get some of my go-to yarn for baby sweaters.  (Huh, they don't seem to have lavendar anymore.)  I have these super-cute owl buttons that my 3 year old picked out, and I really want to do a sweater and hat set for her.  

In other projects...well, my husband and I are splurging this summer and taking a VACATION!  JUST THE TWO OF US!! We're going back to where we honeymoon'd (hence my eagerness to drop the baby weight...err, which, given that the baby is ALMOST FOUR, I can't really blame it on her anymore), and I am so, so excited.  

----------------

Whoa, derailed by the day there.  I am happy to report that two bathrooms are clean!  I also survived the last ski lesson, and the fact (so far) that my DH is coming home late tonight.  I did make it Michael's and got some yarn, but I'm going to look and see if I have enough left-over lavendar for the sweater.  Probably not, but I'll look.   I didn't get the 2nd exercise session in, but that's okay, I did yoga and lots of moving around. It's a start.  Day by day, right?

I know that feeling about the house. I subscribed to flylady.com for a while, and that helped organize me for cleaning.

I also found that putting on some dance music and dancing around the living room with the kids after dinner was good exercise and good family fun, all at the same time!

Good luck!
