The simpler, the better

Hi there,

Happy Monday.

I am finding the above to be true for our life. . The simpler, the better. As my dear husband pointed out last night, I tend to bite off more than I can chew. (It wasn't a criticism, just a reminder ;) I tend to have these grand plans and expectations for the day and life in general. (and tend to get disappointed and overwelmed when my expectations aren't met (and they generally never are) :) But that's ok. I am learning. Kids only have a few basic needs and as long as I keep those priority, all the other things, tend to fall into place when necessary!

Anyhow, that's just what has been helpful for me to work on lately! :)

We are doing well. Martin worked all weekend, as in...even though he didn't go to work on sunday, he had to input all the inventory counts at in he got done at 10 pm last night. Normally that would have been super hard for me...but it was oddly ok. I guess I just realized how stressful it was for him..

In other news, I don't have much else to say. We have really settled into a routine with school, which is nice, really nice. I know I have to be up and at em at 7 am to get everyone fed and clothed and out the door, but then once we get the older 2 into school we have a little "down time"... just me, Mia and Macy. Lots of days, we run errands or visit a friend. And then once we get Ky we get home and eat lunch and get Macy her nap and then hang out a bit, the middle two kids have an hour rest time at some point before we get Brooklyn at 330. Then we have a snack and Brooklyn and ky do their homework. Then they watch their show wild kratts :) while I get dinner. Dinner is at 5. Then baths and storytime before bed. It helps me SO much to know and for the kids to know...what is coming next in the day :)

Well, I best go for now. . almost time to pick up Brooklyn.
Have a great week.


  1. a cute little peek into your world:) Loved it:)

  2. I am right there with ya, I definitely bite off more than I can chew :)!

    Oh and I meant to answer your question the other day...I haven't been training for marathons, that's why I insanely struggled through the half! The only time I have to get out and run a few miles is at is often just to hard to pull myself out of bed though! I'm like you, my hubby works a lot, so my "me time" and "working out" time is seriously limited :).

    Hope you are having a great week!
