I've been terrible with blogging. I've been terrible with doing pretty much anything lately! I just haven't had the energy much. Sorry. But that's parenting.

Lately, I've been dreaming of getting a journal. A real, leather bound journal with freshly cut paper pages and  the sweet feeling of a pencil in my hand. I need a more creative outlet than just blogging. I like blogging, but there are things I want to express that I don't really want anyone to read about. Things I need to get off my chest but can't really talk about it to anyone (yet).

I've also been delighting in the fancy of colored pencils. Oh how I love colored pencils. I want to draw and color again so badly.

I bought some fat girl clothes yesterday. Go me! I am in the process of cleaning out my closet and sorting out clothes. I am sad that my clothes don't fit me properly but at the same time, I know its not healthy to hang on to the "what if" clothes. What if I fit in this again someday? It's just clothes. So I am purging. And it feels good.

I got Brian to do 30 Day Shred with me yesterday. All he has done today is complain about how badly it sucked and how much he hates it and doesn't want to do it again. I am not even that sore. I had to do a lot of encouraging for him yesterday to keep him going. It feels nice, knowing that I may be 50 lbs heavier than him, but I can work out harder, longer, and be less sore than him. Although, he does have all the muscles. I just have more endurance, I guess.

Tracking is going well. I am using MyFitnessPal again so if anyone wants to add me, my user name is christiefarrar :)

Drake had another tooth cut through last night. He now has a total of 5 teeth, 4 on the bottom, and one on the top. He stands in his crib now and protests. He realizes that when you put a blanket over things, they do not disappear. It's so amazing to watch him learn. I am just in awe of my sweet baby boy. Growing up so quickly!

I'm off. Baby is asleep, husband is asleep, dog is asleep. I think I will join the party.
