1st Week...

We’ve had quite the transition at our place this past week. Thomas started full-time with his new job and I started my new job as a stay-at-home mom! In all honesty, I don’t think we could have had a better “first” week. Everything went great. I didn’t once think about my old job or have a moment where I wished I was doing something else. Vivianne and I keep a pretty busy, active schedule that seems to work for the two of us. I am getting to spend more time with her and she is still getting time to be with other kids and without mom. There is a community childcare drop-in-center which I’ve been taking her to 4 times a week for 1.5 hours each morning while I go exercise (New Year’s Resolution #1) which she seems to have taken to quite nicely. She is also involved in two classes that meet for an hour each week. They are excellent and she loves them! We may sign her up for one more later this month, but are waiting to see how it goes with the routine so far. Due to the extra time at home, I’ve started cooking MORE (New Year’s Resolution #2). I tried out three new recipes last week and they weren’t half bad, I couldn’t believe I actually made them! We bought a rice maker/steamer and some new pots and pans which made cooking all more the fun. And on top of it all I’ve quit drinking soda (New Year’s Resolution #3)!

I am hoping the coming days and weeks ahead will go as smoothly as this past week.
