No, I'm not giving up on eating healthy. I'm just giving up tonight on trying to get to everyone's blogs. I think I managed to visit...um five? Ha...but the visits were really nice. No, just looks like I'll be spreading my love throughout the rest of this week to everyone.
But...I. Am. So. Excited!!!
Because I have re-organized the "toy situation" at our house...so that it will no longer haunt my waking hours. Of course, so much more is getting accomplished and I am just loving it.
But imagine if you will ...our four younger flowers...7, 5, 4, and 2 all getting toys for Christmas and for their birthdays over the last five years...imagine the amount of toys that amounts to...then imagine little hands quickly moving toys from one end of the house to the other end...quickly mixing in ALL of the toys that have accumulated over the last several years....Can you feel the pain...the frustration that might cause....
But no more.
I now have a "toy closet". All the toys that correspond to a certain theme are in totes...like there is the "cars totes"...the "little People tote", the "army tote", "the batman tote", the "building things tote", the "play food tote"...
No one gets any toys unless...they go through me!!
Ok...so I know this is my diet blog...but really isn't this also about living a healthy life style too? Isn't the retention of our mental faculties also an important aspect of health?
I am so. much. happier.
Now...when we have "quiet time" the kids can pick a tote to play with and then..when done...put it away. Ahh...I'd forgotten what joy can be found watching your child enjoy playing with all of the pieces of the toy you bought them.
Now... I don't have to worry about breaking my neck when I walk through the house in the dark and stumble on a toy... In fact....no stray toys are allowed to inhabit these living quarters unless given permission by....me....Sunshine Mama.
So...that's where I have been the last few days.
And, Ruth...someone actually guessed correctly what my fantasy food that was pictured in that little bitty picture a few days ago. I can't believe it. You guys are too good. I thought for sure that no one would guess it. In fact, I felt a little guilty for posting such a tiny bit of it...when in the back of my mind, I was thinking that no one could possibly guess it.
Now...do I tell you now...or wait until Friday? Oh, what the heck...I'll wait until Friday!
Other than that, I had such good intentions to blog last night...but I laid down around 8:00 ish and fell asleep. I'd done a lot yesterday. I got a leg work-out in; went to the dentist for 90 minutes of drilling with no gas to calm me, a few hours of organizing....yep I was tired.
I'm trying to decide if I should post a picture for Happy Thursday...I'm feeling a little fat. Ha, Ha! It's funny because everyone I see keeps saying I look "tiny", ...and I am compared to what I normally weighed at this time in my other pregnancies...but I still feel a little "big".
Oh...well...I'm still eating well and working out...
Hope you all have a great Thursday!!
