A New Me

So this past week has been a crazy but great one. We moved into a huge 5 bedroom 2 1/2 bath to house sit for the next 9 months. The Parker Family moved to China and asked us to help them out. So let me tell you it's amazing what space can do. NO MORE CLUTTER. There is a place for everything. It's so nice to have a peaceful de junked home with a place for everything. It's definitely a lot of work, but we are up for the challenge. The neighbors we already know and have been hanging out for the past year and half. All in all it was a fabulous move.

As for me it's definitely been a great move. I have recommitted myself to a new me. I now get up a 5am and hit the gym, read my scriptures, showered and dressed by 7am. So when the girls wake up I'm all theirs. It has already made a world of difference for Boston. Brooks is finally sleeping through the night all the way. My energy levels are AWESOME and it's great to get done what I need to get done before I have my duties ahead of me. I LOVE IT! So here's to good health and many early mornings! I've been doing this for 8 days now. WOOHOO!!!

Oh my 5am!! Good for you! I tried the early morning thing but just can't do it...I am a beast if I get up before 8am (maybe it is cause I stay up so late reading, hehehe).
Keep up the awesome work, I will think of you sweating and working out when I roll over snug in my bed at 5:30, lol!

Way to go!!!! You're doing way better than I am! I'm proud of myself if I make it to the gym a few times a week:P Chase keeps teasing me with the sleeping- hopefully he'll regulate himself soon for good!!!!! I'm glad Brooks is doing so well!
