Truth or dare

 

We've had Josh home for a few days now.  I would be lying if I didn't say my life is exponentially easier and better with him home.  It's been so long since I've had regular help with little things... like dishes...and managing the boys....and holding the baby so I...

Busted

 

I hurt my thumb and my big toe last night at BJJ class.  Both will be fine, but dang...   We were learning this drill where you roll backwards over your shoulder and then from your hands and knees, football tackle your opponent.

My second back summersault caught my thumb...

Readiness Score: 64

 

Mood wise I feel slightly better than yesterday.   I did a tough workout and spent some time working on my plants.  Both of those actions normally help when I'm feeling mentally bleh.  They did help a little.

Unfortunately though, I think I am getting a...

Chokes and Arm Bars

 

My mood is off.   I don't know why.  Could be that I'm tired...could be catching a cold...could be it's been too long since Josh has been home.   Not sure.

Yesterday the boys had their very first BJJ tournament.  I'd say it went well.   By luck...

Fit Me Journal November 5 disjointed militarylife vacation Nov 05, 2019

Where's my kitchen?

 

One of the strange things about being military and moving every few years is that sometimes my brain forgets where I live.   Last night, not only did my brain think we moved to a new house, but I couldn't remember where we came from.   It was a strange panicky...

Daily Grind

 

I'm sorry I haven't written as often.  My ability to write is directly tied to a specific time of day.  Morning.  And lately... my mornings have been unpredictable.   Restful sleep is now a distant memory and I catch myself thinking about what it will feel...

Coffee Couch

 

I'm sleep deprived.  Very.

Georgia has been fairly inconsistent in her sleep patterns but our 13-year-old lab Daisy is pretty obnoxious....consistently.   Last night Georgia woke up 4 times.  Usually, it isn't that many.  Then after she was finally asleep,...

Just say no

 

I almost typed March 25. Nope Christy...it's not March. That weird time warp feeling has happened to me more than a few times lately. It makes me feel like I've lost my mind. I think it has something to do with pregnancy and postpartum hormones...but could also just be a result...

Mom Brain...

 

Sometimes I sit on my little couch in my office and balance coffee between my pillows and my leg.  Well today, I spilled it and it burned my butt.

I really need to get an ottoman or something in here.  Oh wait, I know why I don't have an ottoman in my office....

Can I have those ropes?

 

I still have some of my makeup on from yesterday. I got most of it off but can't seem to figure out how to get the eyeliner off and not screw up my lashes. So I'll just keep it for another day. It looks good anyway.

So the photo shoot in Seattle went great and was...

Picture day 

 

I am nervous.

Today is my photoshoot and I'm going to Seattle with Georgia to have my hair and makeup done, take pictures and celebrate. Celebrate what you ask?

Well... I guess me...at this postpartum stage...right now.  

Normally words just dump out of my head...

Punching bricks

 

Yesterday I took both boys to 2 separate doctor's appointments for nagging issues.   Henry has been complaining of ear pain, but with no fever, I was hoping it was just sinus pressure.   Well, I took him in yesterday and turns out he had impacted wax pressing...
