Day 1: Sleep

Before I typed a word of this entry, Matt and I had a quick discussion.

Me: Okay, here it goes: Day 1. Wait. Is today day one or was yesterday day one? I went to bed at 11:00 last night, but that was just a half-day.

Matt: I guess that is a standard that you get to set.

Me: You're right. A half day doesn't count. Today has to be day one.

Matt: (Laughs)

Me: (Confused about why he's laughing and almost assuming it's whatever he's reading/doing on his phone). Why'd you laugh?

Matt: I said that you could choose whether it's day one and you said, "you're right. It has to be day one." That's not at all what I said.

Me: Hmm. But I said "you're right." That's nice, isn't it?

aaaand impromptu woman-made border--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm happy to report that I made it to bed by 11:00. I'm a little less happy to report that minutes after I went to bed, Matt came in with Christina (my baby, not my sister...that would be REALLY weird) and she cried for milk. So, I didn't have time to fall asleep before I got back up, but what can you do when you're a mommy? Tonight I'll try to make sure Tina's fed before I go to bed.

After taking care of Tina, I went to bed with excited dreams of working out, reading my scriptures, and cleaning the house, all before anyone else woke up.

When my alarm went off at 6:30 I didn't want to work out. Imagine that. So I took a nice warm shower/bath and started the day in a less-jarring way. (Baby steps). Once I warmed up to the idea of morning, I called our friendly neighborhood job center to clear up a problem with our application for child care tuition assistance (Lilly's was set to end 6 months earlier than it should). Turns out without the county's help, I lose money by working. Thank you, government. I will pay you back when I'm rich.

That was a mini-tangent.

Also, LOOK! I magically know how to do a french braid now that I'm a mom! Cool. :)

If you are trying to do this Perfect Month along with me, comment and stay accountable. I'd love to hear how it's going for you!

Ack. I SO don't want to be accountable. I'm back on track; that's all I'll say. :) Cute French braid in Lilly's hair! I hope I'll magically gain that skill when I'm a mom someday.
