Long time....

It's been awhile.

We've had so much stuff going on, that it's been almost impossible to find any time to spare for writing. Which is a problem, because writing usually helps to calm my brain and focus me. Instead, I've been juggling life, and dropping the ball.

I recently gave up Dr. Pepper. It is my favorite vice, but it is not good for me. So I stopped. I just decided, and that was that. I haven't even had a headache or sugar withdrawal this time. I think this is because God knew that if I got even the slightest headache, I would give up. I need everything in my life to be easy right now. Especially since I have LOST my planner. You know, the little book that I carry everywhere, that has all our appointments inside. It's especially awful this morning because we have an appointment with a new doctor, and I can't find the address. I know the CITY.  I know the TIME. But I don't know the WHO or the WHERE EXACTLY. This means that I've been doing a general google hunt, but I can't remember the name of the practice, and there are quite a few of these doctors around.

Also, we have 9 a.m. church this year. Hallelujah. There were a lot of bodies at church yesterday. I don't know if it's because it's the first of the year, or if it's because of the time. There were a lot more babies than usual. Our old time was 1-4 p.m., which is basically NAP TIME.

The school term just ended. (Why it ended after winter break, I know not.) Thaddeus and Blayne had a rough week last week, because they have been slacking MAJORLY in school. And thus, we have new screen time rules. They hate the rules. I don't care. They hate that I don't care. And I still don't care. So that's been fun.

In other news, my resolution for the year is to get UP and READY for the day, every day. So far, so good. I've only missed one day, and I'm okay with that. My other goal is to lose a little weight, but I'm doing baby steps to that. First baby step was the Dr. Pepper. Next baby step is to up the protein.

And that's all for now. I guess I do have a sort-of resolution to keep up with the blog more. But I can't commit to that many things at once.
