New Habit?

by Mollie

Hello everyone, this is Mollie.  I’m finally posting!  I will try to make it a habit, I promise.

Since we moved back to California, I have pretty much just been taking it easy and being a housewife.  It’s a lot of fun!  It’s nice to have time to do the chores, errands, and cooking before Andy gets home so we can spend time relaxing together, and I’m not exhausted and mentally drained at the end of the day like I was when I worked full time.

A typical day for me starts at 7.  I drop Andy off at work at 8 and head to the gym for a couple hours.  I run 3-5 miles a day, then either lift weights or take an hour-long class- cycling, pilates, or yoga.  The rest of the morning, I usually do stuff around the house- straighten everything up, do any cleaning that needs to be done, water my plants, etc.  After lunch I run errands or do fun stuff.  I read, go shopping, go to the beach, go to my parent’s house and scrapbook with my sister… stuff like that.  In the evening, we hang out with our friends, go out, take long walks around the neighborhood, or just sit around the house.  It’s nothing exciting, but I love it!

We started a little project when we first moved here that kept me busy for a couple weeks… tearing down the wallpaper in the living room and painting the walls.  The wallpaper was really… um… funky… and I could not stand it, so I was happy when the landlords said they didn’t like it either.  I will post some before and after pictures soon, it is SUCH an improvement.  I can’t post any right now because I don’t know how and Andy is still in Arizona, but I will.  Anyway our place is so cute, I really like it.  Much better than apartment living.

Well, that is all I have to say today.  I need to start packing for our trip to Vegas, then it’s off to Trader Joe’s (my fave grocery store and one of the best things about being back in California!) for some food to take on the trip.  I am not eating overpriced, fattening food all weekend!!

You should leave me some comments, it might encourage me to post again. 🙂

    I am jealous about the daily two hours at the gym….

  5. I’m just jealous of the staying at home bit… I kinda miss last summer where Toad and I were stay-at-home husbands. Oh… and post more!
