New Years & Stuff

So, we did our annual trip to the cabin for New Years again, it's fun because we have to snowmobile in & it is so pretty up there in the snow. We went with Ryan & Stacey, so it was pretty low-key and relaxed....until Sawyer got sick and the power went out. Let's just say it was not my finest hour as a mother. She was really fussy, what with croup & a double ear infection, poor little bean, and of course all she wanted to do was watch TV, which is hard to do when the freaking power is out for 12 hours straight. At one point she also decided that being totally naked in an unheated cabin was what she wanted to do, I was soooo frustrated with her! Anyway, we all survived and she's well again, so it's all good. Our five year anniversary passed while we were up there as well, we kinda ignored it though, and that was fine with me. I really am not ready to start thinking of gift ideas so soon after Christmas. Anyway, this year I haven't really made any "resolutions", I love the direction that my life is going, and I'm just gonna keep on truckin'. If there is anything I've decided needs to change it is actually to work out less. I have been going 6 days a week, about 1 1/2 or 2 hours a day, and that is retarded. What I really want to do is eat well enough that I can exercise only about 60 minutes a day, just for the love of sweat, not because I HAVE to if I want to maintain my weight and eat like an idiot. I'd also like to do that 60 minutes at 7am so that I don't have to pay for or subject Sawyer to the germs and poor-quality day care at the gym. (Since Ashley left it has seriously tanked in quality there.) In fact, once we finish the basement & I have my little work out room, I'd really rather work out at home. We could just take our $64 each month and instead of paying Golds, automatically have it transferred to a separate savings account that we could dip into when we want new equipment. I like that plan. Matt has really started eating a lot better, and has already shed 10 pounds! He is so amazing, he's just tweaking little things and he's gonna be in better shape than I am in like a week, and he'll be able to eat like this forever! He already looks so much better! Also, he's starting to do a really good scripture study in the morning, and he's just benefiting sooo much from it already. That boy is bustin' out his A game, let's just say that! I love him so much, he is such an inspiration and support to me. Anyway, lately I'm getting excited to be pregnant again! Little Abram is waiting in the wings, I can tell! We can't start trying until March though, because Norwegian Cruise Lines says that I can't be more than 24 weeks on our Alaskan cruise in August. But I'm excited, which is something that I could not say until recently. Anyway. Here is a picture of pretty much all I did at the cabin, (I love that Sawyer totally is mimicking me here, it was so cute.) Stacey & I were trying to make our way through the same book, Love in the Time of Cholera, which I finished and decided that it was not entirely worth the time. Not bad, but just too much work for kind of a dumb ending. I don't know. So many people love it and I was expecting more. But it was refreshing to have a more difficult read after the highly enjoyable, yet trite Twilight series. I have a cake on Saturday, it's very simple, I am so not stressed out, which is nice after freaking cupcake hell.

Hey Celeste,
Your blog is great!
I'm excited for this Thursday, I'll stop by Wild Oats (maybe I should call first) when I'm downtown on Wednesday. It looks like we'll need ALOT of lemons.
I can't believe you and Stacey were reading Love in the time of Cholera.
Steven gave it to me for Christmas, and I was excited to read it... and then have him read it so we could a little lit discussion.
I complained so much that I don't know if he'll ever read it now. I thought it was so tedious, and I didn't feel like the story was worth my time and effort.
Anyway, I'm sure I'll talk to you tomorrow or Wednesday, to get things organized.
It sounds like you and Matt are doing great. Keep up the good work.
Jen (that's Davis if you couldn't guess)

Cute blog! It is so fun to find so many people have blogs and see what's going on in their lives. Especially since Matt and I don't get to see much of his friends. Matt is in awe at how many people belong to the Blog World.
