Best of luck and enjoy meeting up with Marcia - she is a treat
Hahaha - now Cat's comment could be meant as both sarcasm and as a compliment :)

I'm getting so excited to see you, Heather. And the lovely Tom!

Love that you're setting some nice, realistic goals.

Oh my, please come and organize my life...I couldn't even keep up with my son's home reading WHILE he was in school...I'm suddenly filled with tremendous guilt, more than usual. You're a rockstar. That is all.

Preschool, sooo not ready to think about that!

All these are totally doable, I think that is my downfall. My goals are a little too lofty and don't account for the family and my sanity! Way to go!! And enjoy date nights!!

I should do this too. I'm kind of in denial about all of the stuff we need to do in the next few months. Good luck with your list!
Very inspiring! Especially the date nights. We are also smack-dab in the middle of crazy potty training time, so I will be curious to hear what works best for you guys. Still not ready to leave the house diaperless, but if my son is left pants-less at home, he'll pee/poo in the potty on his own, no problem (mostly). When we put the underwear on, though, he pees/poos right in it. So where to go next with this? I'm not sure.

If you have some extra time while in NYC, please do give me a holler :)

oh man. best of luck to you, i know you can do it! i need to be better about date nights--do you schedule a babysitter, too? or do you just do something special at home/out/whatever?

and cardio every day? you're my new hero!!!
