We are well into March of 2013 and I am finally returning to my blog. After I had my son Grayson on November 19th I just didn’t have the energy to do anything extra. Once I gained some energy and some much needed sleep, all I wanted to do was focus on him. Every minute possible of my twelve week maternity leave was spent with him. The house certainly wasn’t kept amazingly clean. After all, when would I have another twelve weeks to spend with my son?
Aside from new baby, I’ve taken on a few more tasks to fill up my time. I have almost finished my two classes for winter term, I’ve returned to work, and I have joined the committee for Vancouver’s Relay for Life. I have filled my plate a bit. Recently added to my load of things to do is “be healthy”. I didn’t make a new year’s resolution to lose weight and I haven’t joined a gym. What I have decided is to try harder to eat better and to implement exercise. After all, I have had two kids and each day I get a little older. Things are going to droop if I don’t keep up with my health! As Debra says on Everybody Loves Raymond (I’m paraphrasing here) “When men age they become handsome and distinguished. Women have to worry about the day they get out of bed and everything hits the floor.”
That said, happy New Year! I look forward to another year of rambling and sharing here.

I for sure say you spent your 12 weeks doing exactly what you should have done..! The house will always be there, our kids won't.
Glad you're back. Glad you're going to focus some time on your health.
