Three Things Thursday: 15 June 2017

  1. After several mornings of wake-ups on the right side of 6:30 AM, little girl decided to wake up right at 6 AM. Sigh. I was really getting used to having coffee and chatting with husband for a bit before the kid(s) woke up. Here’s to hoping that today was a quirk and not a schedule re-set.
  2. The humidity has cranked up here! It’s now only 99F, but it feels like 113F due to the 47% humidity. Ugh. The kids and I played outside for a bit this morning, but only for a bit because I was sweating buckets.
  3. While new baby gates were being installed this morning, I took advantage of little boy’s newfound love of Moana and reorganized all the downstairs toys. We’ve been in this house coming up on a month and it was desperately needed.

2016 Goals

Again, goals, not resolutions (h/t @gazellesoncrack). My posting will likely be even more sporadic in 2016 than 2015, but I’m going to try, because goals…

  1. Keep moving my body as much as I am able for #Bebe2 and #Kid because #health
  2. Embrace the life changes that are headed my way this year with the addition of #Bebe2, a long trip back to the US to visit family in (Northern Hemisphere) summer, and another overseas posting for a bit after that — if I can’t bend, I’ll break…
  3. Learn to better accept help from others because I am horrible at this and I can’t be superwoman

And that’s it. 2016 doesn’t need to be too rigid. Lots going on here and I don’t need the stress of too much more…

April 2015: Recap and Goals

Life

I’m back in the US (for only a few more days) visiting family, so I’ll keep this short and sweet so we can go back to playing outside in the nice spring weather. Hit it…

  • Friends flew down from DC to see me
