I am sorry to have been gone from blogging for so long. Thank you for being patient with me and I am sorry to have caused anyone concern. Everyone here is doing wonderful. I needed to adjust some things in my life and especially in my daily schedule. I have always done my school planning and blogging at night after the kids are in bed and I am waiting for Christian to go to sleep. However I often end up spending a lot of time on the computer jumping from blog to blog and looking up this and that and I really end up being a lot less productive then I would like. I also tend to stay up way too late and journey into the kitchen to snack way too much. It is frustrating for me because there is so much I want to pack into a day and I never seem to have enough time. Of course the first thing that gets neglected is taking care of myself. I needed desperately to change some of my habits. I decided first of all to go to bed at night rather than staying up at the computer. I can't go to sleep because it still takes Christian forever to fall asleep and I must listen for him but I can lay in bed and read my bible on the Kindle. This also takes away the frustration of trying to find a quiet part of the day where I can read and pray. The truth is that there are just never those perfect quiet moments around here. It is so helpful too that I am removed in proximity from the kitchen. I have stopped eating for the sake of eating or in all honesty sometimes the comfort of it when I am stressed. I have started also to take sometime for myself each night after dinner to walk on the treadmill. This has been amazing for me. It really helps me unwind and I feel so much more energetic during the day. I am up to 45 minutes a day now which is about 2.75 miles at the pace I am at. I have lost about 23 pounds in the last month too which it was not really my objective to lose weight but it is a nice side benefit. :) I feel like these are some positive changes and they are things I want to keep up with. I do want to continue blogging also. I just need to make sure I take care of myself so I can be the wife, mom, and teacher God made me to be. So please be patient with me while I try to figure out where to fit in time to blog.
