I am finally finding time in the day for a little mom time now. It's nice. Emma is regularly taking 1-2 naps during the day for 1-2 hrs. Once any cleaning, laundering or picking up is finished, I have time to read, knit or veg in front of the tv. Not needing as many naps in the day as before. Of course, in the last couple days, our nights haven't been all that great. The little girl is seriously teething. She has all four top front teeth coming in and a molar! Poor girl is in pain.
Anyway, another "for me" thing I am doing is Weight Watchers. I joined online today and am excited to get some of this weight off. It's funny, I can't really say it is "pregnancy weight". I lost weight while pregnant…well, I gained 12 lbs, but after Emma was born I lost all that weight plus 10 more. I have managed in this year, unfortunately, to gain back those extra 10 lbs and am back to my pre-pegnancy weight, 25 lbs more than I would like to be. So, I am hoping WW will help get to a healthier weight. Any of you doing WW online? Is it helpful?
I am enjoying reading books I want to read right now. I have actually been able to read books I purchased. I do have some review books still waiting but I needed to take a break. I wasn't enjoying reading. It felt like a chore and I really hated that. I am starting to enjoy again and feel ready to jump into a review book once I finish my current read.
The Shining by Stephen King
Finding parts to be similar to the movie and other parts very different. A lot of the backstory was left out. Really good, but not as scary as I thought it would be. We are reading this for my Book Group. I am hosting October. :) The house is already decorated for Halloween and I have my copy of The Shining (the movie) ready for our meeting on the 26th.
