It's January 26th!!

Woohoo! What is the significance of this day? Well, I don't really know. I don't think there is a significance to this day (unless it just happens to be your birthday, in which case, Happy Birthday!)

No, the truth is I chose sleep over blogging last night, because it was absolutely necessary. I am totally beyond exhausted. Oddly, it doesn't seem to matter how much sleep I get anymore, I still wake up feeling like I need just a couple more hours of shut-eye. I really need to start taking better care of myself, though, that's for sure. A person can only run on about five hours of sleep per night for so long before they crash and burn.

But since I'm addicted to blogging like a kid loves candy, I'll give you a few bullet point factoids of things going on in the Robert house this January 26th - this unespecially special day.

A picture from this time last year. Boy am I glad that iphoto keeps dates on everything! Evelyn has grown A LOT since then. :)

*Despite trying to keep more money in our pockets throughout the year instead of loaning the government interest-free money, we're still managing to get money back on our tax return this year. Not quite sure how that happened, but okay, we'll take more of OUR money back, thank you.

*I was able to get away for almost three whole hours yesterday to get my hair cut and colored and my eyebrows done. Getting my hair professionally colored instead of coming out of a box in my bathroom is a rarity these days since we're extra budget conscience. It was a nice treat, and Eric only complained a little bit about my being gone so long, haha.

*I've discovered that I cannot stomach the juice that I give my daughter every morning. It seriously made me feel ill when I drank a glass yesterday. It's making me question whether we're going to continue to be morning juice people or not. : \ Though, Evie seems to love it, and she can't get enough of that junk. I have to cut her off at two cups, haha.

*We've been trying to work on earlier bedtimes for the girls around here. It's working. Of course, earlier going to bed means earlier rising for us. I'm a night person ordinarily, so we'll see how this goes. :)

*My "three month blues" attitude is already on the rise. I'm loving it! I have great kids and a wonderful husband, and this more sleep thing is helping my stress levels tremendously. It is NO FUN feeling like I'm trapped in a foreign body.

*And finally, the Robert family is planning on big fun for Valentine's Day weekend this year...including banquets and daddy/daughter dances. You'll be hearing a little later on why this is a big deal to me, but I'm really excited about it all!

So that's what I have for you today. :) Not your ordinary blog post, but I couldn't leave you hanging. And now, I'm going to get back to watching the Disney Channel and snuggling with my girls on the couch. Have a happy Wednesday!
