A Blogging Break

So, for this five minutes, Jared is asleep and Gracie is happily playing by herself. We tried to go outside and froze our hinies off. We came back inside. I am so ready for it to get warm. Living in the country, there aren't many distractions and playing outside would be great. Boo...cold weather.

In other thoughts...

I seem to be growing more facial hair than usual. I hope my hormones adjust soon.

I have a terribly addictive personality. This topic could require an entire blog all to itself, but it won't happen. Lets just say that if there is one cookie in the house, I will eat it and all of its family. I am trying to work on this. The easiest thing for me to do is simply not bring home cookies. This is also why I refused to take percocet after having Jared. I really think I became slightly addicted to it after having Gracie. The fact that I actually called and begged a nurse for more might solidify my thoughts on this. Anyway, I finally threw out the girl scout cookies so they would stop taunting me.

I am excited for Easter which I will be spending with my family.

Gracie needs my attention and Jared just woke up. So long for now.


  1. good to hear from you! I too am tired, Tired, TIRED! of the cold. It doesn't help that we are having wind gusts up to 50 mph today. How is that preparing me for Easter weekend and spring? Grrrr.
    But to end on a positive note - thanks for making time to check in! Now I need to see more pictures of those cute kids!

  2. I do the same thing with cookies and anything else in the world. I was able to wean myself off of vicotin quite easily, though ... I think my addictions have only to do with sugary things. That's not good. Today I am going to make chocolate chip cookie dough and freeze it so I can bake one cookie at a time when I need one. Those GS cookies are killer, especially the peanut butter ones and the samoas. YUM. Good to know you are coping somewhat, though. I hope it warms up soon for you!!!

  3. I hate it when my secret stash of cookies/candy is gone. But I hate it more when I realize I'm the only one who knew about my secret stash!

    Let's do a spring dance to bring on the sun and keep it here. Hi to your family!

  4. Isn't it interesting how pregnancy (and the aftermath) can wreak havoc on our systems? I hope things even out for you. :)

    P.S. I agree - it is so much easier not to buy the treats than it is to stay away from them when they are in the house. I have serious cravings so it is easier for me to make the decision once at the store rather than 30 times at home.


  5. It sounds like you are coping well with the new baby. The first couple of months were always so hard for me. I'm glad you guys are all doing great. Post some pictures when you have some time. (like that ever happens with a baby.)

  6. Hey Autumn! That's so fun that we'll be neighbors. We'll have to get together one of these days! I feel like I haven't seen you since your wedding. It would be great to see your cute little kids and catch up on your fun life. Btw, you crack me up! Your blog is great! I had no idea that you were such a great writer!

  7. Autumn!! Hey It's Amanda Cracroft, from the Crystal Heights 2nd ward... I found your blog on Muranda Barker's...
