Today I did a lot of tidying-up around the house, which is fortunate because I found out in the late afternoon that some relatives are coming to visit tomorrow morning!
I took Stephanie’s advice in the comments of my last post and the only carb I had today, other than lots of veggies and some raisins for a snack, was brown rice for dinner. I am also avoiding junk food and trying to eat smaller portions.
For the past month or so, I have been taking a nap every afternoon while Baby Boy takes his second nap, but all the housework wasn’t getting done. Today I stayed up and worked, and lo and behold, the house is clean tonight. The reason I’ve been needing to take naps is that I haven’t been getting enough sleep at night, so I’m going to try not taking naps and just going to bed earlier. I love getting enough sleep, but it’s always so tempting to stay up and read or dink around on the internet. But I am seeing that I need to be more disciplined in a lot of areas of my life, and sleep is one of them.
The house is clean, but bare. We have more wall space in this apartment than in our last one, so now I need to come up with some pretty yet inexpensive ways to decorate. We still (after 2 1/2 years!) haven’t gotten enlargements made of any of our wedding photos, but once we do, I’d love to have some of them on the walls. I grew up in a house with pictures all down the hallway, so now that I live in a place with a hallway, I see it as just begging for pictures.
Well, I have a little free time tonight, so I’m going to do some reading and then go to bed early.
