It has been almost a year and this is the first time in one year that I had the energy to sit-up after putting the twins to bed, watch a game and get a little work done. George and Henry turn one on June 10th…yes! OMG!
For the past year, I have been exhausted…extremely tired. This post-40 life has not only kicked my butt, but having twins has flipped everything upside down. Research shows that men take a huge dip after 40 and is more apparent around 44. No energy, mood swings, lack of drive, and just finding the energy to make it past 8pm is excruciating!
We are complete…the family is complete. As I walked into the room after the Christmas Tree was up and Sarah had completed the decorations, I got a little teary eyed. I had realized, this is the first Christmas with our complete family.
We did it…our first official outing as a family. Now…we have taken the family to church numerous times, but that is not even a block from the house. This was a complete outing including a picnic dinner at Clemson’s Botanical Gardens, then to Clemson’s Bowman Field, and finally fireworks beside Clemson’s Baseball Stadium.
