So, this is the second post between my 2 main blogs that are fairly similar to each other. Today was just a plain crazy day. For some reason, I felt extremely stressed, but I have no idea why I felt extra stressed today. My husband is going back to work Monday after being on Christmas vacation, and my goal is to get a schedule (albeit flexible) in place. I am hoping that with a litle bit of a schedule, I won't feel so stressed at times. As much as I hate to admit that I like schedules, I actually lilke to plan out how my day, my week is going to look. I am not a spontaneous person, but I also know that I don't want to be too rigid. I absolutely have to plan my meals and my household chores! I really want to plan my days with the kids so that they don't go crazy, and I don't go crazy trying to figure out how to keep them occupied. There are a few things that I want to add into our day, like arts/craft projects, dress up, some preschool type activities, some exercise activities to get out some energy, and most definitely some quiet time/nap time. As much as I know that I should start this schedule now, I am definitely going to wait til after the new year. I need to get all our EI dates into place and then plan around that and my work schedule. I am hoping to schedule some play groups so the kids can get together with other kids and maybe I can even get together with some moms!
I am also starting my gluten free dairy free diet today. So far, I have done pretty well. I went to a gluten free bakery nearby in Belmont and I know that there was dairy in what I ate. I also added butter to my dinner, but I am not going to go crazy over it! Hopefully this will help me overall, and I will feel better physically and mentally. I am hoping that I will get a little more energy/desire to do the things that need to get done, like clean the house and cook dinner. I am hoping that I am not so foggy. I am hoping that I have less digestive issues. I may feel worse before I feel better, but here's to a lifelong change to overall health. I think being more scheduled with help with all of my goals!
If ayone one has some good scheduling ideas for 3 toddlers, please pass them on!
