Thanks so much for your comments and emails about our new little one. He’s just starting to open his eyes after three straight weeks of sleep. Our sleep has been enough, but not at any of the traditional times, so days blend together into nights and float by too fast. It’s been a sweet time of not paying attention to the to-do list for as long as I possibly can.
I’ve had lots of time for reflection, thinking about what our new days will look like and how I want our family to be. I’ve been making a lot of choices. Choosing to step over a mess instead of picking it up. This morning I chose coffee over a shower.
One new thing is that I’m going to stop buying soda. As I write that it feels like it shouldn’t be a big deal, but oh how that Dr Pepper habit runs deep, and I don’t want it to be that way anymore. I know if I write about it, then I have to follow through, because there’s nothing like public accountability for motivation. So here’s my simple plan for the next six weeks:
1. Don’t buy it.
2. Drink water.
Have a great day!
