How are your Christmas preparations coming along? It's officially 6 sleeps until the big day and I'm not sure I'm as prepared as I should be this year 🎅
This month seems to have flown by so quickly. I am also going through and cleaning and decluttering the house, which I do every year before Christmas to make way for new toys as well as to have a nice fresh start to the New Year. I've had 3 sick kids for the past week as well, and my youngest daughter wants to just sit and snuggle and get her back patted when unwell, so things generally have to wait until everyone is in bed before I can get much done. 
But all is not lost! 
What is done:
🎄 We all have a Christmas shirt to wear on the day. 🎄 All presents are bought. Except some of my Dad's favourite chocolate which I will pick up today. 🎄 The Christmas Goodies Box is full to the brim.
🎄 The kids bedrooms have been purged, cleaned and are ready for the next round of stuff they will receive.

Things that need to be done:
🎅 Baking. So far I have done about zero Christmas baking. This will begin this afternoon with the Gingerbread Houses. 🎅 Wrapping of gifts. My eldest daughter has been sitting up with me of a night time and we are getting a few things wrapped each night, but have only scratched the surface of what needs to be done. 🎅 The trailer needs to be emptied. It's almost full from my clean out and needs to go to the dump.
🎅 Christmas Day is at my parents home this year and we all need to sit down with a cuppa and work out who is doing what. I think I am on sweets duty and will also make some salads to bring. The third picture is the Vanilla, peppermint and choc chip icecream cake that I made 2 years ago. 🎅 Photos under the Christmas Tree. I get everyone to put on their Christmas shirt and do a little photo shoot with the kids sitting around the tree. It generally takes forever and there's a lot of bribery with chocolate to keep them interested and to try and get a couple of nice shots of all the kids looking at the camera and smiling at once. Last year I literally took 120 photos to get 2 nice ones lol. 🎅 Groceries. These will be done at some stage today, with more fruit bought on Sunday.

If picking up chewed up, spit out food off the floor was an Olympic sport, I would have a gold medal & my kids would be world class trainers. 😏 #momlife #itneverends #threenager

Struggle bus today. 🙄 @dr.jacob.harden warns in his video about this awesome progression to a Nordic Hamstring curl to maybe put a weight down to ensure foot placement. I’ve done these a bunch and never had a problem. Until today 🤭 Second video what it’s supposed to look like but with a weight for security. And third video is another struggle bus without a partner to get under those glute bridge exercises. Trying to bulletproof my little hamstring. #kneerehab #itneverends #aclrepair #everythinginmykneerepair #kneesurgery #foreverrehabbing #nomoreflagfootball #crossfit #alltheway #crossfithaywood

Idag har jeg lavet 0️⃣... Jeg har ligget på sofaen med min dyne og en god bog, spist æbleskiver og mediteret, og det har været heeeeelt viiildt skønt, for der har været ro i min krop 🥰

Og det fik mig til at tænke...... For bare 2 måneder siden, måske endda mindre, vågnede jeg om morgen med en uro i min krop, en nervøsitet, jeg ikke kunne sætte en finger på, den var der bare.. Det følelsen gjorde ved mig, var at jeg ikke kunne slappe af, jeg kunne ikke bare ligge mig i sofaen og se en serie, for min krop protesterede, og jeg havde så meget i mit hoved, at jeg slet ikke kunne holde ud at se noget, og nærmest nogen mennesker heller. Så istedet lavede jeg øvelser der beroligede min krop og mit sind, jeg tvang mig nærmest til at meditere, det var så svært at skulle mærke mig selv, men jeg vidste også at der ingen anden udvej var, jeg var nød til at mærke alt det som gjorde ondt. De dage kan jeg stadig have, men jeg kan mærke der sker noget indeni, noget der føles rart og dejlig, jeg tror jeg er ved at vende hjem 💕... Et sted som jeg har fjernet mig fra gennem mange år, men jeg nu begynder at mærke igen, tror jeg, lige så stille, og det føles som ren KÆRLiGHED... Jeg er stadig i process, og skal være meget opmærksom på hvor jeg ligger min energi, hvor mange aftaler jeg har osv. For mit korthus kan hurtigt falde, men jeg falder ikke lige så langt, og jeg er hurtigere på benene igen og det er jeg bare så TAKnemmelig for.. Så tak for mig, at jeg gør det, og tak for alle dem som har støttet mig og lagt øre til alt mit shit 🌸

I am working on this. 
REALLY trying! 
It's hard with the fighting & whining....from the kids not me. 😉
It's hard to embrace the chaos when you trying so hard to keep it all under control. 
Sometimes, that's exactly what we need to be present: 
Give up the control.
Take a step back. 
Breathe.
And be grateful for the chaos where would you be without it?

This creep has a cold and wouldn't take his normal 1230-230 nap and decided instead to crash during tablet time while I was folding laundry in the garage around 5...oh boy. Fun times working around this schedule. (And yes, Ilsa, who ALSO went down at 1230, is still sleeping! She's the best napper- always has been). #momlife #momof3 #temeculadays #remyb #sickkid #sickdays #itneverends #cold #germs #theafterpartycold #mypups #shelteranimals #shelterdogs #rescuedogs #ilsaisstillasleep #outcold

My baby's getting so big! 🤦🏻‍♀️😍 Best pic I could get of him while at his Pre-OP check up with his Ortho last week.
•
I've been in total denial about what's happening in 2days, I admit it. He's scheduled for surgery Wednesday morning to remove the plate and screws in his right hip from the Femoral Osteotomy surgery he had done last august. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Sooooooooo dreading it and hate that he has to go through it again. Now Im sure it won't be as bad as the original surgery, since this time it's only one cut and no cast needed... And his Dr has assured over and over that it's super quick & simple, way less extensive than before. That he shouldn't be in as pain as before. But that doesn't stop the anxiety & stress from building every time I think about it and remembering how terrible those 4months post-op were! So yea, I ignored the dates and pushed it to the back of my mind. BUT here we are two days out, so time to suck it up and prep both mentally & physically. All I can do is leave it in Gods hands and pray everything goes smoothly with NO complications like last time. Going to make the best of it and push through like always. Feel free to send a few prayers our way!

Ugh my day!
Ellana woke up grouchy so not a good wake up for me, attempted to get a shower alone but baby girl crawled in onesie and all. Then the fiasco happened Ellana had an accident and as I’m trying to console her and not flip out myself a dog poops, the phone starts ringing and UPS pulls up and starts unloading boxes so all the dogs start freaking out. Finally got that settled, Ellana calmed down checked out and given lunch she goes down for a nap and the dogs have to be put in momma’s bathroom for the plummer to come in and check out why we had no water pressure fast forward to when he leaves and it’s a disaster. We all know what dog do when they get excited and there were 3 of them in one room trying to get out. So the girls watched Ellana while over 2 hours I cleaned a destroyed bathroom and gave 3 dogs a full bath then had to clean the bathroom they were give a bath in. Everything hurts and my energy level is running on empty. Can skip to bedtime now?

There is no shame in being an imperfect mess. Instagram used to be a place to post in-the-moment snaps without a care in the world, but is now so slick and polished, I question my own self-worth and ability every time I scroll through my feed.
—
For example, here is yet ANOTHER shot of my one-eared wonder, looking much the same as it did a few weeks ago. 😩 Sigh… you guys, I have NO trouble beginning and completing 80% of a project. But that final 10%? Bahhhh… it’s EXCRUCIATING. That’s when the alarm bells go off, and I throw a million tasks and excuses in the way to get me the heck outta there! Just imagine a long-distance runner slowing down 100m from the finish line and then FREAKING OUT and suddenly changing course down another track - it makes no sense!! 🤦🏻‍♀️
—
Apparently, this is a normal part of the creation process, but it’s so rare for anybody to admit it, much less talk about it. Project Envy is real! Every time I see someone post a completed shawl or toy that they whipped in a few days, I’m like, “…HOW?!”
—
I’m sharing this because I’m perfectly fine with admitting that I don’t have it all together. And... it’s kinda funny how we let a free photo-sharing app on our phones have so much power over us.
—
That’s why it’s so important to remind ourselves of the REAL race we are running. To remind ourselves of WHO we are, and what we are doing on this planet.
—
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)
—
If you resonate with this, then YES, we are soul sisters!! Let’s both get our heads right by keeping our eyes on Jesus, and our feet running the race WITH ENDURANCE ✊🏃🏻‍♀️
