New Moon

Man, it's been a while since I've been on here. Life with 2 kids is busy. I haven't been feeling the blog thing for a while. I'm thinking I want to re-invent it but I haven't quite figured "it" out yet.

Tonight's a new moon and its a good time to set intentions each month on the new moon. E calls it "woo woo." I call it optimistic.

Today I feel more like myself. I went for a run, I think that's why. The pounds are just not coming off post baby like they did 6 years ago. Its not the end of the world, but I'm looking forward to the fall more than ever.

This last month we traveled to Bali to visit our friends who have been living there for the past 3 years. People told me I was crazy to travel with a 7 month old, a 5 yr old and a recovering brain injured husband. I almost believed them. But, it was amazing. Sometimes, you just have to do the thing that scares you. And we did.

Hudson turns 6 on Saturday. Quinn just started crawling and I leave for Europe in 1 week for work.

I'll miss Hudson's first day of 1st grade. When I told him he said " Mom, I don't care." Whew. Cross that off the mothers guilt list. (Until he screws up in junior high and throws it back at me that it's because I missed his first day of 1st grade.)

I'm sure Ill miss a few new things that Quinn does as well, as she seemingly changes daily. But, I'm excited for my trip across the pond. No work/life balance to manage. Just me and my girlfriends (from work), some meetings, a few Danish pastries and a private pee or two.

A few Bali pics...
