Copying my sister's post of

rambling thoughts. I haven't posted in a long time because I haven't had anything to say. It's been insane at work, and it's not going to ease up any time soon. I'm *so over* winter, too. I hate bundling children, buckling seatbelts over bulky coats, losing gloves and hats, and the ice that covers every surface of sidewalk and roadway. Tonight, I just bought the boys new winter gloves because we haven't been able to keep track of the ones we had.

Bonnie stated such a truth the other day on her blog:

My kids are all asleep. Why is it that when they are sleeping I miss them? Why is it when they are awake I feel like I need a break?

Um, I completely agree. Even Hope has been getting on my nerves. She's definitely showing signs of being two--whining, acting defiant at times, and clinging to her blanket and nuk.

I'm also frustrated with myself for not yet being able to build in time for exercising on most days. It seems like something else always takes priority--work, kids, housework, sleep. I know that it's my job to make it fit. It's like a puzzle whose pieces keep changing, and I'm getting sick of trying to solve it.

Don't be too hard on yourself, it's a hard thing for everyone. I'm just now getting somewhat back on track. Too bad it's 10lbs too late!! These last 2 weeks have completely kicked my ass too so you are not alone. And seriously...I can't imagine sweet lil Hope being a sassy 2-year old?!?

It's so hard in the winter to excercise - it's not like we have to look at ourselves in tank tops and shorts like we do in the summer!

Thanks, girls. Your comments help lift my spirits!

Erin I totally feel your pain. In the summer I prioritize that one hour each for exercise. I tell myself that I deserve that one hour for being home all day, running the kids, etc. In the school year it's much more difficult to justify.

Go Erin! I love that I am not the only one that shares this stuff. You have to get it off you chest. YOu are a great mother, totally hot, and I would kill for your bod.
