So, I've come to determine that I function best on a schedule.  In fact, the crazier, the better.  Don't get me wrong, when I'm in the middle of the crazy schedule I wonder what in the world I'm thinking and wishing for nothing more than a long vacatio on a sandy beach, still, genearlly, I am more uncomfortable with down time.

The past semester was definitely crazy.  I was up early every morning for a long day of classes and/or clinicals.  I came home to Mommy Kaia alone while Todd was deployed and we were up late most nights.  But, I knew what I was doing, or at least what I should be doing, every minute of everyday.   I even had to stop blogging (writing and reading) because there was simply no time.

Now, the freedom will be my undoing.  I have the summer off.  At least for now, I'm not even doing a part-time job (other than being a Mommy and wife of course :)  The result?  I seem to get nothing done in a day.

So, now I am attempting to get the blog going again - at least a few days a week over the summer.  And I am back to studying for my personal trainer's certificate.  My goal is to get certified sooner rather than later and (cross fingers) hopefully, get hired on somewhere (please let it be my gym!) a few hours a week.

Wish this feeling lazy mommy luck.

What are your thoughts on schedules?

Hope you all are off to a wonderful start to the week!

I'm Baaaaack!

At least a few times a week durig the summer anyways ;)

How are you ladies?!  How I have dearly missed you!

A lot has happened since my last post.  The love of my life has returned from the great, far away, beyond.  Kaia and I could not be more delighted.

I finished up my first semester back . . . on the dean's list.  Yay!

And Kaia . . . boy has she grown!  Probably the biggest milestones to catch you up on are:

1)  She has cut two bottom teeth
2)  She crawls crazy fast. all. over
3)  She pulls herself up and takes a few steps around furniture
4)  Her new favorite is loving on Daddy
5)  And being kissed all over by random strangers' puppies
6)  She holds her own sippy and can pick up her own food to feed herself
7)  But, she's off the chart skinny now and hates eating most of the time (any and all advice on this one welcome)

So, there's a good run-down from here.  Enough about us.  I want to hear about you!
