The New Norm

Good Morning Peeps!  Hope all is well in your neck of the woods :)  Since my little lady has started Kindergarten, we’ve all been adjusting to a new routine.  We’re on week 3 of this whole school thing and it’s been going rather smoothly.

Sleepy Baby (276x490)

This is how I get to wake up every morning.  Be jealous ;)  He’s the best little snuggle bug and I can’t stand when the alarm goes off before he wakes up, which is usually only once or twice a week.  He’s generally always up by 6-6:30am…yawn.

After we drop the little lady off at school, my little guys and I get to go on our run.  I’m in heaven!  I haven’t got to do this for a looooong time (like 11months).  I don’t mean that I haven’t ran in 11 months, but I haven’t been able to workout during the day, outside for 11 months because you can’t fit 3 kids in a double-jogger. It’s super easy and I’m lovin’ it. Just throw them in and take off.  Don’t get me wrong, I do miss having the big girl at home with me, but she’s loving school and it was a super easy transition for both of us.  Win-win :) Oh, and she gets her shot at it on the weekends when the hubbs is here to supervise the lone wolf that got left behind.

Water in Wash (276x490)

We’ve had quite a bit of rain over the past couple of weeks, which led to lots of standing water, which led to lots of tiny, annoying bugs flying all up in my face (they may or may not end up in my mouth…if they do, it’s considered protein), which led to high humidity, which led to breakouts, which led to join pain.  I love me a good rain, but I’m not liking the aftermath of it.  Like they say, we have a dry heat down here in the desert.  This humidity is killing me.  I forgot how much I dislike it.

Running (276x490)

After I’ve completed my run, I let this little terror guy out for his run.  I even found him some running shorts this weekend that were “just like mommy’s”.  He’s cute ;)

Checking the Mail (276x490)

We have 3 clusters of mailboxes in our neighborhood and we have to stop at each of them at least once.  Oh, and that’s his wallet that he insisted on bringing with him.  We always try to find money when we’re out.  Most of the time, we’re unsuccessful, but we did find a 1 dollar bill on Saturday – woot woot!

Checking the Mail 2 (276x490)

Aaaand, more mailboxes.  Shirt optional.

Checking the Mail 3 (276x490)

Sorry dude, my keys don’t work there ;)

Grocery Shopping (276x490)

Here’s one of us grocery shopping.  Again, super easy.  The baby looks like he’s about to lay down in the cart.  He saw bright lights above and was in a trans.  I never let him sit in the cart, so this was like the first time really.  I generally carry him.  Not for the germ factor like you think, but more so that I get an arm workout.  Fit it in while you can, right?

On another note, these pics of the kiddos are cute, but the quality is pretty much garbage. I never thought I’d rely on my phone so much for pics when out and about, but I do.  I’m in the mood for an upgrade, but we’ll see what happens.  The van needed maintenance last weekend, so we’re already on the ramen noodle budget.  It’s not something I would consider if I didn’t have kids, but I really want to have good quality memories, not fuzzy ones.  A good picture is worth so much to me.  Also, I can no longer use the Map My Run app on my phone.  Sigh.  It’s just not powerful enough anymore.  Sooo, that’s what we’re up to.  How are you?
