Life has been a little crazy lately. There's really not too much going on, but with summer and the heat and the garden and just plain old everything that needs to get done around the house, I feel like I have been on the go all the time. This has really gotten in the way of doing things right. I have not done anything creative lately at all. I keep saying I'm going to, but I never get around to it. I am in the process of trying to make a baby carrier like a Babyhawk. I just can't seem to get the sewing machine out. I have so many projects that I want to make especially on the sewing machine. i need to force myself to be creative and make things with the supplies that I have! I have also done a horrible job of eating healthy and cooking at home. We have been eating out way too much lately. I really need to get back on track and start cooking and eating healthy.
My husband has been getting out in the garden and doing a great job at taking care of things there. I am getting a little disappointed though with how it is looking. We have a few tomatoes, 1 great zucchini, a couple of peppers, maybe a spaghetti squash or 2. I am hoping that in time, things will pick up. We have had a horrible heat wave here with little to no rain. The grass looks like it usually does in August, so I am hoping that we get rain more often and hopefully that will help things grow better. Next year we will plan better and hopefully have better soil since we are also composting this year. Only time will tell how our garden will be and hopefully we will have veggies to get us through some meals! Oh, and I forgot we also have a cauliflower and have had a little broccoli.
I am getting totally frustrated with my cloth diapers. I am using prefolds with covers and had been loving them for the last year except for the rashes that the kids are getting! I feel like every time I get their rashes cleared up, they come back. I can't for the life of me figure out what I m doing wrong. I think I may need to strip them again since we have had an issue with water pressure related to our filter system. The filters have all been changed and now we have normal water pressure. Hopefully, if I strip them again and we continue to maintain water pressure, things will get back to normal. If not, I plan to buy new prefolds and maybe even use disposables until the kids rash clears up!
I joined in a couch to 5K with another twin mom. I walked only 1 time last week and didn't run at all. My husband and I need to get back on track and get exercising again. I have 1 more week til I start back to work part time. I want to spend this week enjoying my last week without needing to worry about being back home for work. I think we may go up to Franconia notch, kangamagus highway area and do some walking and sight seeing with the kids. We will spend Wed night having a birthday cake for my husband's aunt. The rest of the week I just want to enjoy, but also still make sure that we work on the couch to 5K program.
Hopefully, my life will settle and I can get back to the life that I want to lead. I really want to start cooking again, but I have to admit (as much as I hate to) I do like to eat out. I also like to eat junk food. I need to start eating healthy and getting healthy and start having better habits for my kids to follow!
