Snippets Of The Past

Found a journal today that I had written in only twice. I am much better about blogging!

Here is the entry from 02 February 1996

I started a diet today. (160lbs) This weekend has been so wonderful! The weather has been perfect so yesterday hubby and I took the babies outside to play. They explored all over. Boy twin likes to have a hickory nut in each hand - he doesn't put them down until it's time to go inside. Girl twin brought me leaves, grass, pine needles and whatever else she could find. Today we took them for their first trip to the park. Boy twin only liked playing on the grass. He cried on the sand and on the slide. Girl twin loved it! She especially liked watching the other kids play. I've been suffering from insomnia lately. I haven't been able to figure out why. Bedtime struggles have paid off! The babies go to bed at 8:00 pm. We read them 1 or 2 stories and then a prayer, shut off the light and turn on the music box. They lay down & fall asleep - no fuss, no fight. It's fantastic!

I miss early bedtimes. At our house, our kids went to bed by 7:30 (even in daylight summer evenings) until they were in 2nd grade. 8:00 when in 3/4th grade. stinks. 9 or later. :( Really takes away that down time/couple time we usta have.

BTW, I used to think 160 was "fat", and it's still a tad over my ideal weight, but looks thin to me right now!
