19556.gifExercise Before I even touch the computer….that is what I am going to do from now on.  As soon as I get on my computer, I am in blogging mode (and it doesn’t help that I am just alittle addicted to blogging–just ask my hubby).  So this morning, I took a longing glance at my computer, then did some exercising.  It wasn’t much (due to the fact that I am REALLY out of shape and have a baby guunt–that is my tummy—or what used to be my tummy).  It was only stretching.  But I figured I should be able to move for the real exercising.  But it did take me 10 minutes to do the basic stretches and I was sweating and out of breath.  How sad…but I guess I have to start somewhere.  But I did it.  And I ate a healthy breakfast of banana, coffee, and fruit chips.  YUM!

So go to Kris’s blog to find other fantastic rubies!

PS:  I have already failed for today…been on the computer 3 times and have not exercised…man…habits (and blogging addictions) die hard.

Ok everyone…this Meme is brand new.  It is kinda for SAHM (stay at home moms).  For more information, check out Kris’s blog.

But here are the answers to her questions…get to know you questions:

  • – Give some general info about your family: # of kids and ages (if you feel comfortable giving that info out), # of years as a SAHM, does your husband work at home or outside the home?

Well, we have 4 kids–5 years, 1 1/2 years, and 8 month old twin boys…yikes.  I have been a SAHM since my oldest was born.  My hubby works out of the home.

  • – Do you work in or outside of the home? If so, how many hours per week and what is your schedule like?

I kinda work in the home…I am working at becoming a problogger/freelance writer.  My schedule—5am–start to blog–about 7 or 8 am–spend time with kids–naptime–blog–about 3–cleaning and time with kids–dinner–time with kids and hubbie–about 9 or 10 pm—more blogging until about midnight or 2am..yea…kind of crazy…but I have made 30 cents so for!

  • – What helps you get through your week? Do you use a planner or “to-do” list? Are you organized or do you fly by the seat of your pants?

Blogging helps me get through the week.  I have something of my very own and I get to socialize.  I do have a planner that I take everywhere with me.  I try to plan stuff out but I usually end up flying by the seat of my pants and by the seat of my kid’s diapers.

  • – Do your children help around the house? chores? cooking? If they don’t do much, do you wish they did more?

My oldest helps with picking up and other things I ask him to do.  No cooking or dishes ( oh how I can’t wait for him to be tall enough for the dishes) but he does help himself to the fridge.  My 1 1/2 year old does help sometimes.  The twins are really good at pooping.

  • – What do you want to do better? What area of your life is a stumbling block for you? Would you like prayer for a specific thing this week?

I always feel like I could be a better mom.

 Well, that is all she wrote.  See ya next week.  I hope this catches on!
