Hey guys, sorry I’ve been a little MIA here and there lately. busy, busy, busy, as usual. I’ve been learning a few new positions at work so I can be a cross-trained ninja accountant, and while that hasn’t led to me being at work any later than usual, I have opted to work through lunch to get some extra stuff done, which is usually some of my blogging time.
I’ve been trying to finally get into a good eating/working out habit. I get so pumped at the beginning of the week, tired after a few days, and then guilty over the weekend. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Then, my alarm on my cell phone has been acting weird and not going off some days – it’s happened 4 days in the past 2 weeks and at first, I just couldn’t figure it out. Then last night I found out it was how the alarm sound and phone sound interact with each other. Ugh. Anyway, it really messed up my “plan” for starting the T25 program last week…I did 2 days, then got thrown off when I didn’t wake up in the morning to do the 3rd day and didn’t have time after work…so I didn’t do the rest of the week. I did, however, run both days this weekend, since Aubrey granted me with 2 super long naps instead of her usual < 30 minutes. Then on Monday I restarted T25. I had the alarm issue on Tuesday, but I was determined, so I did it after work instead. Aubrey wasn’t too thrilled about it, but Trent thought it was the best thing ever! He did the entire thing with me. His form wasn’t perfect (haha) but he did burpees, punches, kicks, and lots of jumping. He even kept giving Aubrey snacks so she would be happy. He didn’t even break a sweat…nothing like an unlimited-energy toddler to make you feel old.
Another thing that has kept me busy in the best way is we were planning our 10th wedding anniversary cruise! We have been thinking about a family cruise for some time (our family and friends came with us on our honeymoon cruise) and when we found out that Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas (the gigantic boat with a million things to do) was moving closer to us from Fort Lauderdale to Port Canaveral in Fall 2016 (just a month after our anniversary), we just HAD to book it. So once we knew the family was onboard with our plans (<—see what I did there), we had to made the decision of what room to pick. We are so indecisive with this stuff. Be frugal or splurge on your anniversary? Hmmm…we decided to slightly splurge We’ve never worked with a travel agent before, just always did it ourselves, but since I’ve been working with Pirate n Princess Vacations over at my Disney site, The Best of Disney, I figured I’d try it. So far, it has been a great experience and some nice perks too, so I’ll keep y’all updated on our trip plans! This is going to be the longest wait E-V-E-R! In the meantime, I assign myself the task of reading a bunch of other people’s trip reports and looking at all the FOOD available for my consumption on the ship
I’ve also been plagued by the perfectionism bug – my whole life really – I have this mindset that each post has to be so perfect and encompass anything and everything related to that topic. I really want to get over that because in many of the blogs I read, some of my favorite posts are the ones where they just talk about their recent happenings and stuff. I guess I just don’t feel like every day is so blog-worthy in the life of Lynn – but honestly, the other posts I read don’t always have a whole lot going on either, lol, so I’m going to try to take more photos and videos of the daily stuff to share with you. I also have a mile-long list of more in-depth posts I want to write/have drafts of that I want to work on actually hitting the publish button on. My post on getting empty Disney park photos was sitting in my draft box for almost a year when I finally finished it up and hit publish…and you guys loved it! I am so thankful and motivated to share more posts like that.
One of those posts that’s in the works is a series of posts from when we went to Seattle a few years ago. It was such a fun trip and we did so many adventures that I want to share them instead of letting those photos sit in a folder. So stay tuned for that, as well as the rest of our December WDW trip report, and a 7 and 8 month Aubrey update – she’s getting so big!
It’s almost Friday – yay!
