I think I fell off the deep edge!

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!
