Goings on

Some busy times are ahead.  It's October 16th, in five days I celebrate my 31st birthday.  By celebrate I really just mean I turn 31, I don't believe there is much celebrating to be done this year, not for any reason other than it's the first year we have three kids birthdays to pay for.  Speaking of which.  Noah and Tobey are turning a year old on November 19th.  It's been quite a year.  I have not documented it much at all, darn me!  I think about blog posts in my head all the time and never get to my computer to put them down.  
Up next, Evan turns three December 21st.  And four days behind that is Christmas.  Oh and I guess I forgot about Halloween and Thanksgiving somewhere in there.  It's going to be kind of nuts, and I'm going to love it.  I seem to thrive well in times like these.  

So, what's been going on?  I put my business on hold for a while.  There are two main reasons for this.  I was putting too much focus on it, and it was taking away from my kids.  I was working when they napped and when they went to bed and I was exhausted.  Reason 2:  I had twins last year and really needed to focus on getting my weight under control, and my body back.  It's been a few months, and while I miss the feeling like I was contributing, I don't regret it at all.  I know that I am crazy lucky to be at home with my kids just like I wanted, and I'm taking it all in as much as I can.  AND now that I am focusing on my fitness, I have lost 24 pounds in just under 2 months.  There's nothing like success to motivate you.  

Other than that, Mike started going to college, something I didn't much expect to happen.  He's taking two classes and doing well at it.  It's going to be a long haul, for us both, but totally worth it in the end. 

I hope I can bring my ass to this chair far more frequently, I miss it.
