Oh my GOSH!!! I can't even begin to tell you how busy I've been recently. Christmas has come and gone as well as the beginning of the new year. I haven't purposefully been neglecting to blog, the time has just gotten away from me. Let me begin ...

Christmas was a whirlwind of presents and family. When you have kids, the holidays seem to go by so much faster. Not to mention, we had 3 christmas' to go to this year. PLUS, we couldn't go to church because, where do you find a babysitter on Christmas Eve?

I passed my part 4 boards exams WOOHOO!!! I'm super pumped. I found out the results the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS! Wow,were the heck was the national board examiners thinking? At least I passed.

We tried our hardest to get to a New Years Eve party this year but we couldn't find anything to do that we wouldn't fall asleep at so we were, unfortunately in bed by 10:30 that night. An elderly lady at my internship told me I looked tired a day or so later, implying that I'd been out partying, and when I told her that I fell asleep before the ball dropped, she looked at me like I was crazy.

I started a new internship after the new year which had me working myself to the bone for the first week so that I got accustomed to the new procedures etc. This last week has been much easier and I've settled in well but going through these big changes in our routine throws off the whole family. Abby's daycare schedule changes which not only puts stress on Abby and me but it also indirectly affects Jason's schedule as well.

I tried my hardest to achieve my goal from the last blog but sadly I failed. Not by much though. I kept up my exercises pretty well through the holidays, I just slipped up once or twice by not going because of all the other activities we had on the table. BUT, on a positive note, I've had to tighten my belt 1 hole even though the scale hasn't changed PLUS, one of my friends joined the work out facility that Jason and I go to so I have a new work out buddy which is a huge motivator.

Well that's it for now, I know it's a lot to read but try living it. Oye.
