My breakfast choice lately: Kashi Go Lean Crunch with Almond Coconut Milk. It's so yummy, it tastes like I'm having a treat. I'm pretty sure this is more sugar than I should be having first thing in the morning, but it keeps me filled up until lunch.
Guess how many times I've flossed my teeth this year (my January New Year Resolution)? Once.
Guess how many times we've said the family rosary this year? Once.
I heard something about slow and steady winning the race, so maybe there's a chance....
What do you do with some high energy kids when it's slushy and cold out? Take them to an indoor playground at the mall. We used to go to this one a lot when the older kids were small, going back this weekend we realized that J-P and Andrew were now too tall to play there! They snuck in some time anyway. Xander loved going down the slide all by himself, when his siblings would let him try :)
Speaking of Xander, he's been such a lovey lately. He wants to get picked up and cuddled by me whenever I'm around. Which I'm loving but my back and hips are not liking it so much. He's not the lightest feather in the pillow!
He climbs up in the kitchen chair and waits for food now like one of the big kids. Then we move him over to the high chair...sorry buddy, we only have 6 kitchen chairs. He's going to be in the high chair for a looooong time!

The blue spray bottle in the background?
That's for spraying the kitten when she jumps up on the table.
Can I tell you all how much I love my hubby? We spent yesterday putting away Christmas decorations, organizing the house, cleaning, and even switching the couches from the family room to the living room.
Then I baked him a lasagna and let him watch the Redskins in peace (meaning I put a movie on for the kids upstairs).
And they lost.
Poor RG3, he was so hurt and disappointed I wanted to give him a hug.
Now that the couches are in the *right* rooms, I need some advice on where to buy throw pillows. They are so expensive!! And I need 8 of them. And I can't sew, so please don't suggest that ;) Where do you recommend?
Also, if I am going to run the Half Marathon near us in March I need to start training now. But I can't decide if I want to do it. It will be on St. Patty's Day which will be fun but Phil's knee hurts him whenever he runs more than 4 miles and if he doesn't do it with me, it will be a loooong 13.1 miles. If I do it, I would want to beat at least last year's time of 2:06 and get under two hours again. I still exercise a lot so it's not like I need the motivation of a race to work out. What do you think?
P.S. Please don't talk about Downton Abbey yet, ok? We recorded it because we were fast asleep!!
