I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. We had a day filled with family, food, and gifts. We started by thanking the Lord for His most precious gift, Jesus, and then the kids opened their gifts. They received lots of LEGO sets, which they were extremely happy about.
Tomorrow, we start packing all over again. We’ve packed a good amount so far, but we have a lot to go. I’ve made a plan as to which rooms will get packed on certain days, and we have to stick to that plan. So I’ll be keeping my goals pretty simple and centered around our upcoming move back to Illinois.
But first, here’s how I did with last week’s goals:
Keep up with adding one ornament to the Christmas tree everyday until Christmas — We didn’t do this perfectly, but when we missed a day, we’d just do it the next time we added ornaments.
Make Christmas cookies! — We made Christmas cookies twice, and I definitely want to share the recipe I used here on the blog. They turned out so delicious!
Juice at least 2 days this week
Pray — And continuing to pray…
5. Walk on the treadmill 4 days this week — I never ended up getting on the treadmill, but I did spent extra time walking around a few stores. That counts as exercise, right? I also spent lots of time on my feet, cooking and baking in the kitchen.
We decided to purchase an Ergo baby carrier for Elisabeth, so I’m hoping that I’m be able ‘wear’ Elisabeth in the carrier while I walk on the treadmill. It should get here on Wednesday, and I’m super excited! I’ve used baby wraps in the past, but for quite some time Elisabeth hasn’t liked the moby wrap I had been using with her.
She likes to be held a ton, and my arms and hands are actually starting to bother me when I carry her now. I think the combination of carrying her and using the computer is starting to affect me physically. Not good. But I’m hoping she’ll love the Ergo, and I can use that to carry her around the house.
