Chances are Few and Far Between

I'm going to try something different this week. I have decided to write my blog posts in the evenings again because my other system (of just posting whenever I get the chance to sit down during the day) isn't working much anymore. Now that Piper is getting more and more mobile, my chances of getting a blog post up while she is awake are few and far between.

Right now, Piper is up in her crib, crawling around. She is getting the last of her energy out before she falls asleep for the night. Now that she is a crib rail walker (and sometimes an all-out gymnast in there) she doesn't just go right to sleep like she use to when we'd lay her in the crib. I'm starting to learn that as she grows, some things get easier and some things get harder. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that's just how it's always going to be from here on out.

This weekend, we had a little sale at a local Alpaca Farm. We took some of our "Anything Rustic" items to sell at the shop there and we did pretty well. I was going to be happy if we sold one item, and we ended up selling one item in the first 10 minutes of the shop being open. That was exciting!

I've got to say, the best part of my new business is that I can craft all of my items and sell them with the company of my family. Piper joined Nick and I at the sale for a couple hours, and then my mother-in-law came to take her for her nap. Working on this business at home does have it's disadvantages, but the perks are just out of this world!

Today was the first day that my husband was back on first shift (after a week of being on second shift). Boy am I ever thankful that he normally works first shift. Second shift was hard for us all. We didn't like that one bit. We are big on eating dinner together, as a family. Nick and I also missed cuddling on the couch after Piper would go off to sleep. It got a little lonely here last week. I'm not a fan of second shift.

This morning, Piper and I went to the park for a walk, in the middle of December, only 11 days away from Christmas. It was 66 degrees outside. We finished out walk just when it was about to start raining. I could get use to this warm weather all year round. It's been nice this year!

After our walk, Piper and I went grocery shopping. I'm starting to really enjoy our grocery trips together during the day, when it's not busy. We just meander down the isles and take our time. It's so nice to not be in a rush! Piper is such a good girl in the grocery store. I'm hoping this doesn't change, but I won't hold my breath.

I am definitely cherishing this easy age with the grocery shopping trips! She's been a great shopper ever since birth, this little girl. Almost going on a whole year now. Okay, I'm gong to stop right there. I don't want to talk about how she is going to be ONE next month. Moving on...

This evening, my mom came over to watch Piper so I could go get my workout in! We did Interval Fusion at Jazzercise and that was intense! It was my first Interval class and my arms/shoulders/back/everything is already getting sore. I'm going to be feeling this one, tomorrow.

Readers, how was your weekend? What kind of workout has been kicking your butt lately?

  1. I try to do most of my posting at night... it's hard sometimes, since I work full time outside the home, I feel like I have to cram in all the cleaning/me time/blogging/husband time in the 2-3 hours after the kids go to bed. I'm still working on figuring out the perfect schedule!

    Also, the grocery shopping trips... heeheehee! There was a time when I loved taking the kids with me... now they're 2.5 and 4, and let's just say that it's probably been a year and a half since they haven't gone to store with me for anything more than a quick trip. ;)
