Hey, me again.

Oh hey, just Kalissa again, starting out another blog post apologizing for my absence on the blog! Thanks for checking back anyway! Let’s jump in!

First of all, shout out to my main squeeze Craig Alexander – I didn’t realize how much I am able to get done when he’s around. I blame my lack of blog posting on his late nights in the combine because he usually allow me some time at night to just write blog posts while he manages the gremlins. Also, Craig turned the big 2-7 this past week on Tuesday! We celebrated with RAIN on Thursday and Friday – lots of it – so he’s been home more this weekend – most of the day today. Harvest is still in full swing! We got snow here today but not enough to deter any harvesting tomorrow.

The way my schedule worked last week was NICE – I had several days off in a row and was FINALLY able to get caught up! As of 8 pm on this day, October 25th, ALL OF THE LAUNDRY IN THE FRIEDMAN HOME IS PUT AWAY and CLEAN! Can you believe that? I sure can’t! It won’t last long but I felt it was worth sharing.

I’ve taken loads and loads to the thrift store so the house feels much lighter, more organized. I’m working on clearing out the basement and freshening it up with some indoor toys/equipment so we can hang out down there this Winter with the boys just to switch things up. I was going to order mats for the floor but Carver has stolen and lost ALL of our tape measures in the house.

Carver was hilarious today – he told me “Mom, I need some alone time away from the baby.” The baby was Gannon and Carver was being forced to take a nap with him – in fact the entire Friedman clan got a solid 4 hour nap today! We are all feeling refreshed!

My health/fitness journey is still going strong – I’ve noticed some REAL differences in my appearance, my energy level, my mood, I just feel so much lighter. I’m still meeting with my personal trainer every Thursday to get my butt kicked into shape.

My wonderful sister in law Lora let me borrow her big fancy camera to dink around with so I’ve been diving head first into photography, ISO, aperture, and all that jazz trying my hand at photography. I snapped this picture for my sister’s twin announcement! THAT’S RIGHT, SHE’S HAVING TWINS YA’LL!!

It’s tempting to just stick with what I know – which is taking pics on my iphone – I got this one of mom and Rosie cross stitching the other day. But I’ve ALWAYS wanted to really try photography so I’m pushing myself to learn something new!

Also guys, like if you see me fill up with gas at Kwik Star, you can BET I’ll be buying this fabulous combo too: Caffeine water and these delicious greek yogurt bars! These are a few of my favorite things!

Also, someone asked for the amazon link to my favorite razors I posted awhile back so here it is!

I’m also loving these razors my mom recommended from Amazon. I went from using Bic’s single blade razors to this, and I AM NEVER GOING BACK YOU GUYS! You get 9 razors for like $11! One razor lasted me 2 full months and was just as smooth as the first time I used it! Seriously, give it a shot! Here is the link: https://amzn.to/3gcllCq

Thanks for reading friends, see you next time!

    Sounds like good times were had by all 🙂 Congrats on getting all caught up! Always a good feeling.

    Please consider not apologizing for skipping Blog post days. Your regular readers know: you are married, you have 2 busy kiddos, you work 12h nights (which we RNs know means 14h plus sleep/eat/drive), you’re still remodeling, you’re working with a trainer and and and. It’s OK. We’ll check back. If it really bugs you, simply do a “Hi all. I’m well. Fam is well. I’m busy. Catch ya later”!

    Cheers to a great week!

    I’m with Elle, don’t feel you need to apologize. Even though I’m now a grandmother I remember the days when I scarcely had time to use the bathroom! Do what you can and don’t worry about the things that have to pass by.
