What have we been up to lately?

I have been neglecting my blog for a while.  This is supposed to be here to chronicle Ethan's life, but I have been too busy trying to get our lives under control to come on here much.

Ethan is doing pretty well.  He is still getting sick fairly often, but he hasn't had any infection of any sort since Christmas, which is a small victory for us :)

Ethan is still in the slow potty training process.  The good news is that his daycare sits him on the potty and he goes, and he goes for us usually (80% of the time) at night before bed.  I am not pushing it too much, but hoping that he will eventually get used to the idea that he will be doing this for the rest of his life :)  I am hoping that in the summer we can switch him to regular underwear one weekend and see how he does.  I can't really imagine that right now.

We finally had some snow and hopefully we will be doing more sledding soon.

This year is the year I take control of MY health.  I have been sick and tired (and overweight) for far too long and that needs to change fast if I want to be here to see Ethan grow up and become an adult.  I am hoping that by getting my sinus headaches under control (waiting for a follow-up visit to an ENT) and by getting in shape and eating better that I will be a happier, healthier version of myself so that I can devote more time to my family.

So far my plan hasn't made much progress.  I am back at the chiropractor and have started seeing a massage therapist in the hopes that the alternative therapy will help me feel better and I can actually START getting in shape without worrying about the sinus headaches that plague me EVERY DAY.  So far, in the 2 weeks since I have started this, I have only had a couple of sinus headaches.  I do have a bad cold this week, so that is a minor set back.  I did get up and work out on my elliptical trainer this morning however.
