I am in a stage where I feel like our house is full of too much junk. I want to get rid of so many things but lack the energy to do it. We have boxes and bags filled with stuff to give to goodwill in our basement and garage and we just need to get it there. I want to simplify and feel overwhelmed with stuff everywhere but don't know where to start.
I've done more sponsored posts lately and sometimes it worries me that it will make my blog less appealing, but honestly it has been really nice to make some money blogging, and I try to only say yes to things that I would use and fit into things I'm interested in.
I think about the four embryos that we lost throughout our struggle to get pregnant. I think about the babies that should be in our house. What they would look like and what their personalities would be like. Having Addilyn, and knowing what those tiny little embryos turn into, makes me think of them almost more than I thought I would. I'm beyond grateful for this one precious life that we were given, but still think about those four babies.
I really want to sign up for the Chicago marathon next October. I've wanted to do it again and said maybe once I had a baby I would. I think it would help me to have a goal and something that was just for me. However I am really not positive if I could do it. Physically or mentally. I can't even imagine running five miles right now, let alone 26. I have until March when registration opens to decide.
I mentioned it before but I really need to work on eating less sweets. I was doing good for awhile (meaning I stopped eating a dessert after lunch. And okay, who I am fooling, after breakfast too) but then our house became filled with baking goodness and we've been to a few dinners and parties with lots of temptation that I didn't really even try to fight. I feel like trying to quit sweets during the holidays altogether is like trying to run a marathon when the most you've ever run is one mile.
I can't even wait for Christmas next week and experiencing this time of year with Addilyn. The other night I was just staring at our three stockings hanging by our fireplace and sometimes it is still surreal to me that we are a family of three.
