I spent the entire day yesterday in my pj's, played Yahtzee with the kids, had leftover KFC for lunch and (almost) finished my ironing!  Although it sounds boring, it was the perfect 'last day of holidays.' 

It was back to work for me and back to daycare for the kids today.  Memphis has been off since the week before Christmas because of that nasty ear infection he had before the holidays... I thought I'd have to drag him there kicking and screaming... BUT the morning went surprisingly well.  Both kids woke up on the right side of the bed (this is NOT usually the case), ate their breakfast, got dressed and brushed their teeth without much prodding from me.  I guess they were anxious to get back to their friends and their routine.  It felt good, and having a successful morning made the day more bearable.

Today is Day Twenty-Four of my ''30 Days of Pictures'' challenge and I am supposed to post a picture of something I wish I could change.  I'm not sure if that meant to be something I wish I could change about myself or just anything in general, so I'm going to go with something pretty obvious:

My weight!  I know that I'm not 'huge'... but I'm the heaviest I've ever been NOT pregnant.  I don't like the way it feels.  I don't want or need to lose a crazy amount of weight, but 20 lbs would be nice.  I plan on starting an exercise routine at home.  I'll continue to watch what I eat, and stay active.  I tend to get lazy in the Winter, so I definitely need to be proactive about this.  I will keep my blog updated with my progress... I might even share a 'before' picture! Eek!

I'm also going to cheat a bit and cross item #59 off my 101 List: Get Memphis a pet - A hamster.  I never mentioned anything of the hamster being real or alive... ;) 
He received a Kung Zhu as a Christmas present from my Aunt... and my sister bought him a battle station.  But having just 1 'ninja hamster' would make for a pretty lame battle, so I picked him up a cute blue, black & mohawked one the last time I was out.

Seeing as we adopted a cat just before the holidays, I'm not entirely sure adding a real, live hamster to our brood right now (or anytime in the near future) would be a great idea.  This is as good as it gets.

  1. Maddy has 3 zhu zhu's and i feel the same way - they are super cute and can be a "pet hamster" without the cleaning of the cage and stuff and my cat doesn't mind it buzzing around the living room!! I am planning on getting her some starter houses and stuff for them for her birthday!


I ♥ hearing from you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a little message!
