No title

As I look over my blog I see that about every 2 months I have a half started post that never came to be. I find myself with a lot of things to talk about and no real order to them. My life over the last year and a half has been pretty much all baby, all the time. I am a stay at home mom now and that has been a really hard change for me. I love it, don't get me wrong. But I also loved having an outside career. I am  battling a bit of depression and I think a lot of it is this change in lifestyle. Its a BIG change. Even though it doesn't feel like I haven't been going to work (trust me when I say being a mom is non-stop), I struggle with not having that.

Anyway, so yea there haven't been any posts because I made a huge life change and I am still trying to find my center again.

I think I will just recap my day/week/month when I post unless I have something specific to talk about.

I started working out
I've been running for a few years now, its kept me from really getting out of shape and helped me lose all of my baby weight and then some after I had my daughter. But I really want to focus on strength. The more and more I tote around a 25lb human I realize she's not getting any lighter. So based on the recommendations of /r/xxfitness I started Strong Curves. Its been 2 weeks and so far I really like it. I can do the exercises, I feel really well worked out after them and while I don't really see a strength difference yet, I definitely feel more flexible and agile.

Right now miss Rosie Posie is 17 months old. She's into stacking blocks, doing things on her own and making her first attempts at saying real words. I can say with all honesty that while little babies are crazy cute, having a toddler is like the best thing ever. I don't know why anyone says they miss the early months, I do not. I love seeing my baby turn into a person.

Right now I'm fooling around in Borderlands 2 with my friends and I just started playing Tera with my husband. Once a week we host a game night at our house. Its been great for getting to know local people. right now I am really into Splendor and Bohnanza. Our little game group started playing D&D as well, I am starting a character the next time we meet. A Halfling Bard. I have never done this before so I'm super nervous but I think it'll be a lot of fun.
