It is the first day of the new year and I think that we are off to a pretty good start. I already have one goal mostly achieved off of my list of goals for the year thanks to my darling husband who was looking for something in the horror that was under our stairs and decided to clean while he was looking. I will go and tidy up a tad more and call it good. Mostly I think we need to have a better place for all of our throw blankets (you know what I am talking about right? The smallish blankets that you snuggle under when you are watching tv). We have to keep them hidden from Evan who likes to eat them. They also seem to be breeding because we started out with two and now we have four.
I also went walking today after slacking completely during the holidays. Harry is still doing his two nap thing so I was able to just take Evan along in our single stroller (my husband is still on holiday hours at work and only has to work one day this week so he stayed home and played computer games while Harry slept. Of course Harry woke up the instant I got back from the walk. My husband lives a charmed life sometimes). It was amazing how much faster I could walk when not pushing 50+ pounds of children in a boat of a double stroller. The double stroller is nice but it is a monster to turn. It was also neat being able to listen to my wonderful shiny iPod while walking. I felt like showing all the people I passed my new toy.
I hope that this great day is a sign of things to come.
Evan playing tonight while I was making dinner. This is a super nifty toy that my parents bought for Evan. Thomas will follow the tracks that you put on the mat and can actually search for the track if he looses it which happens often since Evan loves to sit on the mat instead of by the mat. Sometimes Thomas has to take "naps" because the music drives mommy nuts.
