The boy isn't even eleven months old yet and already he's headed up the stairs. That boy is as tenacious as an Airedale terrier chasing a cat. He has no "Off" switch, or at least not one I can find.
I haven't posted in a few days mostly because I am chasing both my little monkeys around. Even Pumpkin, who is so mellow most days has caught Dumpling's "Let's Go Exploring" energy and is off and into everything. I can't turn my back on the two of them for four seconds before one or the other is up to something. Naptime is a blessed break for us all. I've napped the last few days mostly just so I can keep up.
The exercise and eating changes are going well. I've got a chart on the fridge with boxes listing the daily workouts for the next twelve weeks. Each morning after I exercise I put a star in the box for that day. Yup, I taught Kindergarten, I just don't have any more little chart stickers. It's a good visual for me to see the progress I am making and an incentive, however small, to keep at it as I don't want an empty box glaring at me.
I am looking forward to Sunday though as that is my "Free Day" where I won't exercise and can have anything I want to eat. We're having company for dinner that night. We're splitting up the cooking-they're bringing Jack's Famous Homemade Pizza and I'll supply the salad and dessert. This is going to be some dessert. I know they love chocolate almost as much as I do, so it'll be fun to plan. Of course, any leftovers will have to follow them home, or go with Sweetheart off to the office so I'm not tempted by them come Monday.
Here's a question--where do you store all the stuff after you can it? The pantry is already full of regular groceries. I'm sitting here with 35 jars on my counter. Not the best plan for working around in the kitchen. Guess I'm off to the basement to clean off my Hoosier cabinet. It has gardening and craft things on it. I need to see what can go away or be moved. I REALLY want my counters empty. Stuff, even useful stuff, drives me nuts left on the counters.
Better jump to it before the boys awaken. Hope you all are having a lovely week and not getting too hot!
