{ routine }

Life for the past few weeks has been...well...hectic.  Between running to the hospital to check on Nancy, being a mom and wife, trying to keep a handle on our apartment, and working...well a lot has seemed to fall by the wayside.  Especially since we had two holidays in a row and Evan's been off from school.

I have noticed that my boys thrive on routine.  And when we don't have any routine...well...the days doesn't go well.  Especially with Alexander.  He gets easily overwhelmed and the noise and constant commotion that comes from a 6 year old, hasn't really helped him take very good naps.  Leaving him extremely cranky.

So for the next three days (yay for days off) we're going to get ourselves into a pretty regular routine.  With good nap times and trying to get our household in some sort of order.  I figured that if I can start setting the groundwork - hopefully during the week Mike can follow through.

In either case, I feel like this next month will be pretty boring.  Not that I won't try to sneak in a fun trip to the zoo or heading outside if the weather is warm enough to play in the snow - but I know that at this point, our schedule needs to be our first priority.

If for nothing else but my sanity.
