Whoa! I have not posted in nearly a month! What on earth is going on?! Not only have I not posted, but I haven't been sewing, or crafting, or eating right, or exercising either. I have also been going to bed really early... like right after I put Ava down. If there is a silver lining in all of this, at least I have kept up with my Goodreads challenge. On the days I don't go to bed at 7pm, I have been reading quite a bit. Truth be told, reading is my favorite thing to do when I get overwhelmed. There is nothing better than cozying up with a good book and letting the characters take you away. Usually, the more stressed I am, the less cerebral my reading material becomes, and these past weeks have been no exception.
But... I think I am ready to be back again. The weather is getting nicer, I feel the desire to exercise and eat right, and although I still have the need to read novels that will take me away from the things I don't want to deal with right now... I think I can start going to bed at a normal time, and make some time for crafts as well :)
Of course, I must leave a gratuitous picture of Ava... and I have to say, even though I am her mommy and I am the one who takes care of her, sometimes my little almost 17 month old takes care of me too. She just doesn't know it! I love watching her run to the door when she sees me walk up to pick her up from daycare. I love how she comes to sit close to me just to be near me when she plays, I love how she makes silly faces now, just to be funny, and how she hugs me and says "Awww!" Having my wonderful family is really what it is all about!
