i'm going to come out and say it

I think ... we're decent. Good, even. I'm afraid to say anything because I don't want to jinx things. So maybe more details later, but for now, I'm cautiously optimistic. I think I've got this. I have an almost 2 month old - has it been 7 weeks? It feels like longer. A lot longer, and not in a bad way. I can parent 3 human children and not go crazy. It's not due to any of my own skill, but rather a boatload of blessings. A husband who has far more energy and patience than a new bishop in his situation could ever have, an incredibly generous mother in law who has spent over a year battling cancer and still finds the energy to keep everything running - and I mean everything. A sister in law willing to come and hold Thing 3 for 10 days so I could get a handle on things with both hands, plus multitudes of additional tender mercies. Oh, and a sweet baby who is willing to sleep at night (please don't let saying it out loud jinx it!!).

I prayed so hard for my burdens to be lifted this time, but I was blessed with angels instead. So now... I've kind of got this. FYI.

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
