Oh, and it's not easy. I've been trying to quite FB for about a year now. It's an addiction! So I've gone cold turkey, and perhaps on the hardest day of the year for me. Yes, call me crazy.
Along with that, I canceled our Netflix subscription. We only had instant on the Wii netflix, but really, if I was busy, or trying to clean, what did I do? I turned on the babysitter to entertain Charlotte (and maybe Beatrice) instead of showing them how to clean, and letting them help. Or better yet, waiting until nap to do whatever i needed to do (like type this blog post).

All of this, plus we're seriously downsizing. I'm getting rid of half of everything we own. I want to fit our house in a house half the size because, eventually, and soon, I want to move to a house half the size. Clothes that don't fit me any more? GONE! No more hopeful jeans for me. I'm forward driven, not back.
And on that vein, Joey and I have taken a turn in our eating habits after reading (ok, we're ALMOST done) "Why We Get Fat, and What to do about it" by Gary Taubes. While the girls aren't going without their daily bread, we certainly are. Or at least, Joey is mainly because, well, seeing as I'm pregnant, I will be making the move a little less suddenly than he is.
Yup, I said it, I'm pregnant with number 3. (See, blogging world, you get to know thing before Facebook sometimes.) Hence the lack of serious posts over the last several weeks. So maybe all this is just early nesting, or maybe it's born from a serious desire to REDUCE our home to the basics before we add anybody else to the mix. In a permanent, visible, way that is. (Baby's due early next year, but I won't give specifics because my children have proven so far to never obey due dates anyway).
