Insanity: the Workout, the Weekend, & the New Job!
This week, Jonathan & I decided to start the workout program, Insanity (thanks to Nancy & Phil!). Let me tell you - it is a GREAT workout. We have motivated one another, smelled like we've never before, had Peyton laughing at our jumping jacks, & been extremely sore! We only have 54 more days...I'll keep you posted on the results!
Peyton Christmas Tree Shopping!
We had the best weekend! We went Christmas tree shopping - I packed the video camera & camera to capture Peyton's excitement of getting his first tree. As you can see from the picture, he was beyond thrilled. We stayed up until midnight decorating (& I am NOT a night person, but was enjoying myself so much, I lost track of time)! We finished our home decorations as well - garland outside, candles in the windows, our Snow Village set out, etc. We also had several Christmas parties - it was great to continue to make friends in the Royston area. It was truly a magical weekend.
Peyton 3 months old! Wed., Dec. 1, 2010
Finally, another added detail to our week & another change to our lives...I got a job! It truly is an answered prayer. I was hoping to find a part-time in education. Our county was on a hiring freeze, so we knew it would be a long-shot. But, I applied, interviewed, & got a part-time tutoring position at Carnesville Elementary working with 4th & 5th graders to help prepare for the Spring test. I'll admit...I've been tearful all day thinking of leaving Peyton. But, I am grateful for this position & have a friend watching Peyton. Another change with the Barlow Bunch...we'll keep you posted on how this week goes with our new routine!
