January was a blur!

Between a back injury, working two jobs and, generally, running in circles..... I haven't had much time to write here. I want to, I just have no time left at the end of the day and, let's face it, I'm so not a morning person!   I wanted to make sure I wrote something so I'd have something to look back at for this month... so here's some random tidbits from January!

Work sent me to Sacramento round-trip one-day for a grant application.  I was happy to go cause it meant lunch with my parents and these three:

In case you don't know, that's my sister and her two kiddos, my most favorite nephew & niece!

My favorite little nephew who's growing up too fast:
Walking, talking, ABC's, numbers.... spoon balanced on his nose?!  Sweet!!  I'm so proud!! :D

And this cutie who I got to feed lunch:
Already growing too fast for me - thankfully, my sister sends me text message pics a couple times a week!

My kind of work day! :)
Countless layouts and cards... I'll share those soon.

Watched my amazing husband speed through a remodel of our laundry room which I will also be sharing soon -- he's almost done!  I'm so proud of him.  He's the best -- I'm such a lucky girl!! Then it's my turn to hang pictures and all that fun stuff. :)

Suffered a bad back injury -- inflammed illiopsoas muscles, inflammed left hamstring, irritated siatic nerve on my left side.  No fun.  Finally feeling better, but makes work a challenge.  Contemplating one of those crazy chairs for work... no joke.  Sitting = no good.  Walking, standing, yoga = good.  I want to start running again on a regular basis.  SOON.  I tried last week and my back immediately flared up.  sigh.  A little fearful of trying again and hurting that much again.

I miss my hubby.  He's been such a trooper with my crazy schedule and when I'm home, I'm dead tired or working on the computer.  I appreciate that he feeds me, loves our pets, loves our home and loves me.  He's the best! :) 

This year, I'm trying to just take everything as it comes at me -- no goals for the year, no word.  Just living.  this is a big change for me! :)  This month I've just been hustling and trying to normalize my sleep schedule. So far, so good.  I'm getting to bed around 10-11 every night and up between 6:45-8 depending on weekday/weekend.  Next month, I'm hoping to settle into a better schedule.   By that, I mean I'm hoping to get to bed a little earlier, get up at 6 to workout every weekday, with serious exercise in some form 4 days a week and plan an evening a week for my hubby -- no computer, no phone, just us.  Hope he'll cooperate with that one! ;)
