First Hump Day of the year wooo! Here we are on third day of the new year and, hopefully, feeling good.
I woke up this morning with a bit of a sore throat, which may have something with Everett going back to day care. So not super happy about that, but what are you to do? Oh well! It has gotten better throughout the day so I hope it just goes away haha.
Yesterday I didn’t think I would even post and look at me go! I got two out, surprise haha. I was super swamped at work and still, sort of, am. This is the lull in the eye of the storm in a manner of speaking.
Last night was the first night that we put Everett to bed, with out him coming with us. He is still in our room and in his bassinet but we made the decision to put him upstairs right after his last bottle, and see how it goes. We had the monitor on, and with minimal fussing he went right to sleep. He slept well the rest of the night and I think we have a good thing going with this. I am confident that he can sleep in his own room, but my wife would like to still hold off on that for a bit longer. I’m OK with that decision. So that was a big win for us I think.
This winter weather is hitting our area pretty hard, and right now it is bitter cold. Schools in surrounding areas have been closed due to the low temperatures. In some areas it is reaching -20 F. We make sure to bundle Everett up as best we can, and keep him out of it as much as possible. I however notice that my facial hair freezes up instantly if it is even a tiny bit wet. I can lick my lips and it will freeze right up. I was shoveling the snow off of my sidewalk the other day, wearing big winter gloves, and my fingers were still numb by the end of it. Our water company as issues a warning about pipes freezing. We are supposed to have the water on to at least a drip to prevent it. That last thing we need is busted pipes. I’ll have to get on that when I get home today.
In other news I have our first Masonic meeting of the new year tonight. I am in a new position and have new lines to speak, so I’m a bit nervous. I know I have the lines down, but saying them in your head and out loud to yourself is different then doing it in the meeting haha. It should be OK though, I mean it is the first week after all. I’m not sure what they are serving for dinner but I know it’ll be good.
Speaking of eating, I am back on my regular diet. I gained 13 pounds from eating like a fatty over the span of a month. There really is just no good way to eat well, when you have an overindulging mindset. It is hard the rest of the year to stay healthy but over Christmas and New Years forget it! I’m not mad or even worried about it though because I know I’ll get it back off, but it is crazy to think I just gained that all back haha. I knew I was when my work shirts got a bit tight. Oops! 😀
That is all for now, I hope you all have a great rest of the week, I’ll see you tomorrow! 😀 😀
