Lacking Motivation

I've been in a blog slump lately. I feel like I have nothing to write about. You can only write so many posts about being stressed out before people say ENOUGH already!  So if anyone has any suggestions, I'd gladly take them! :)

So instead of being a debby downer about all that needs to be done (we leave for Alabama in 16 days...ahhh!) I will instead say what I am looking forward to in the coming months. 

1. Spring!  Spring will come early this year since we're traveling south.  I'm looking forward to warmer weather and being able to get these munchkins outside to run all of their energy off.  Our winter hasn't been too terrible compared to a lot of the country (just cold here) so I feel like I can't really complain but winter with children is tough. No one likes being cooped up. So spring, I am ready for you!

2. The Beach.  In Montgomery, we're just 2-3 hours away from some pretty great beaches.  Like Pensacola, Destin, and Panama City. It will be spring break time so we'll have to pick and choose and our beach trips accordingly but I absolutely love the ocean and can't wait to bring the kiddos to it!
Brian and I back in '08 at Orange Beach. This was our before kids, little stress days as you can tell by our baby faces.

3.  Day Trips. In Montgomery we're just hours away from a lot of southern cities that would make fun day trips. Like Atlanta, Birmingham, Chattanooga, Pensacola to name a few. Plus we're only 2 and a half hours away from where we were stationed in Mississippi so we can visit some friends there!

4.  Colorado!! When I used to visit Brian at the Academy I always told him how lucky he was that he got to live there. I was so jealous because Colorado is just such a beautiful state with so much to do outdoors.  I'm so excited to bring the kids there and expose them to all of Colorado's beauty.
Last time we were in Colorado Springs was in 2011, before Brian's first deployment. We brought Brady, (then 10 months old), Rascal, Brian and I on a little trip from Omaha to visit the Academy again.  I remember on that trip wishing that we'd be back there at some point, never did we think we'd actually be getting to live there!

So excited to go back to the AF Academy!

Excited to take these two (and  now Layla!) back to Garden of the Gods, hiking in the mountains, and so much more.

And to go skiing in Breckenridge. It's been many years since I attempted skiing there but I'm ready to try again and to teach our kids to be snow bunnies!

I'm off to go do some more work around the house. Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! :)

I tend to complain a lot on my It's just the winter Strangely, I enjoy reading peoples complaints and stresses of life! It makes me feel like I'm not the only one!

I enjoy doing my "Wordless Wednesday" posts. You could always squeeze those in during the week just to add a little something. You are probably just feeling the blog slump because you are probably so stressed and pre-occupied with the move and getting ready. Completely understandable!

I'm excited for you to get the dirt on Montgomery! We arrive in about 4.5 months. Beaches are a top priority :)

Ha, good job twisting some optimism during a very stressful time in your life! :)

It sounds like you have many great things coming up... Colorado will be such an adventure for you guys!! :)

Jenn said...

I agree with Hana- complaining sometimes makes me feel like I'm not alone! LOL Lord have mercy, you are one busy family. And baby Brady! OMG!

I understand how you feel! I took a week off of blogging this week due to lack of time and ideas! These are some great things to look forward to! It certainly gives you something to try to remind yourself of the good things coming after all of the stress and craziness has passed! :)
