Distancing Vibes

Last night the boys and I sat on my bed and played Egyptian Rat.   We normally play games on the dining room table, but last night we sat crosslegged on my bed.

  It reminded me of being a teenager and playing with my friends.   Even though the boys...

Georgia just slept 11 hours. I'm not kidding.

 

We started the "Taking Cara Babies" sleep program 5 nights ago and we are finally getting somewhere.  

We started sleep training just in time for Georgia and I to travel to San Diego tomorrow.

I'm sure we will have to start all over...

Night King 1, Christy 0

 

 

I received lots of nice notes and encouraging messages about sleep. Thank you.   

Yesterday Amazon delivered a cute little stuffed owl that plays lullabies and projects star lights. We tried the new bedtime routine to no avail. I took Georgia in my...

That's what she said...

 

My dogs are playing at my feet...and by playing I mean doing the doggy swirl of teeth and fake growling as they both lay on the floor.
If you have dogs, you know this sound.

Henry is sitting next to me on my office couch holding Georgia and just asked Alexa...

Snow Dayzz

 

Fit Me Journal January 14

It snowed...again.   Schools are closed and the boys will be home to fight and wrestle like Tasmanian devils while I juggle a full coaching day.   In fact, they've already started begging to invite extra Tasmanian devil friends over.  If...

Re: Your Text

 

I just got the best text. To tell you the truth, I needed it. Launch week can be pretty emotionally draining for me, and #momlife has been tough this week. I've been working around the clock and the kids and dogs are determined to destroy my house and my sanity.

This text was...

Medium well

 

I don't know that I'm recovered from travel yet. I got back a week ago today, but I really paid the piper on this one. Sleep has been hit or miss, I've struggled to get back to my normal workout routine and house catch up...well you know. Did I mention I've barely started my...

Fracking my soul

 

I'm back from Arizona. I have fluffy cheeks that I know come from sleep deprivation. Last night I slept well....but it almost made it even more obvious that my body is in deep sleep debt.

Georgia did great on the trip. It wasn't easy, but we made it work. I literally ran...

Balancing Act

 

I'm in Scottsdale, AZ for business and professional development training. I go to these events quarterly and see my business mentor Jason Phillips. I brought Georgia with me...and a babysitter named Kyra to help.

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...

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....
