First Week Back

Well we managed to stay on the schedule for the most part. But the part that didn’t stay on the schedule was because we aren’t yet at a place where we can work out 7 days a week. The plan that I outlined in the last post worked out well and going to the gym […]

The Plan

So after lots of, “But wait, what about this” conversations I think I finally have a plan that will incorporate all the things that are important to us: Family, Work, Exercise. This is probably not that fascinating for most of you, but I’m just putting it down here to have it written down somewhere.This is […]

A Game for Lucy

We have been having some two year old stubbornness happening around these parts. And so every evening was turning into a power struggle and tears on her end. I don’t want to lose to the two year old but I don’t want to have fights every night. Bedtime was becoming an issue because she won’t […]


As I prepare to go back to work next week this was the conversation that we had last night:

Leah: Ok, so wait, if we run on Tuesday and Thursdays, then we can run Saturdays and Sundays and get 4 days in but only ever run two days in a row

Jason: So then, go […]

One Week

This is my final week of maternity leave. I cannot believe after all the waiting and counting down of pregnancy that we are already at this point. Seriously all that crazy happened 11 weeks ago. Because we live in a country that boasts “family values” and yet makes no attempt to join every other country […]

First Meeting with Pam

About a week and a half ago Jason and I joined the Lincoln Square Athletic Club…Oh right I talked about that last week (look at me posting more than once in 6 months!). Anyways, as part of a deal when you signed up you could get three personal training sessions for $100. So we decided […]

Family Fest 2012

Every summer we rent a house for a week with Jason’s family. This is the third year that we have done this and it was another great success! This year we rented a house in Muskegon, MI. The house was on Mona Lake, very close to Lake Michigan. Jason’s parents, his oldest brother and his […]

A Little Early…but That’s Ok

Note this entire post is based on the last two days of behavior…so really tomorrow it’s going to be totally different because babies are the most inconsistant thing n the planet :).

So in my head Calvin goes to bed at 7 and wakes up at 5. Does that really happen? Um no…so why do […]

Going to Over Do It?

It has been great getting back into a running routine. I used to say it takes about 2 weeks to get into a routine and I still think that holds. Although with two kids I think it will be more like 3 or 4 weeks. I know when I start things I tend to over […]
