Happy February! The second month of 2016 is off to a beautiful start. After some crazy winds, we experienced several days of the most gorgeous weather. Beach weather, some days even hitting 80 degrees! Hello bathing suits!
I've been trying to keep these kids busy every day with the beach, a museum, or excursion of some kind, on top of going to the gym every morning. It has been an amazing couple of months. My energy is up, along with my mood. But it ain't easy staying on the go all the time with two kids. The kids caught a cold last week, and I think it finally caught up to me this morning. This is the first Monday in weeks where we're skipping the gym and staying put. Listening to my body and resting up sounds just right.
There's another fun reason to stay home today. We added a new character to the mix. Seems smart right? Busy mom with two small kids and one senior dog definitely needs to care for a puppy too. Haha. I must be crazy. In any case, we've been wanting to get a family size dog for awhile. A labradoodle puppy in need of a home surfaced and we knew he was ours. Bowie joined our family on Saturday and we're pretty excited about it. I heard Bennett talking in his room saying, "I am so happy about my new dog." Be still my heart! I know the bond Bennett will share with this dog makes all the extra work worth it.
Now I'm off to make some Valentines and drink round after round of throat soothing tea. Happy Monday!
