Don't know how smoothly I'm keeping things running lately

Hi Everyone, I know its been a while so I finally got a chance to log in and let you know that I'm still alive. Fitness wise I have been keeping active although I feel like my schedule has limited my duration but something is better than nothing. Food wise I haven't been doing as well. I have definitely been using food as a comfort and am about 5 lbs heavier than I was at this time last year. I know what I have to do to reverse this trend its just getting back into a routine of more healthy food and fewer treats, and definitely an increase in sleep as I know I'm burning the candle at both ends. Last Friday I took a day off from work to spend with Grace, Tim, and Connor since they were off from school for vacation. We visited the Children's Museum of New Hampshire which was really fun.
It was really fun to spend the day watching them discover and play and it was nice not to think about all the daily stresses. Saturday was week two of soccer. I am coaching or assistant coaching three teams this year so its definitely a busy day, but watching kids at the differet levels of play is really cute and we always have a fun time. I must confess that the orange handout time is my favorite part though ;-)
As far as races I think I am reevaluating the race a month resolution from earlier in the year. I definitely want to do my half in the fall, even possibly a full one if i can get a training schedule that will work for my lifestyle but with hubby being out and us being behind on so many things I feel guilty doing the smaller races when that 25-30$ can go towards something else we need. So I am going to continue to run but I am going to cut down on the monthly races and maybe aim for a every other month race at this point. On the work front things are going pretty good, I'm starting to get the hang of things and am just working more on time management to get everything done to the best of my ability but I definitely feel more organized than I did a month ago. On the kid front everyone is doing well. Grace is excited for her 7th birthday this week which will mean cake and cupcakes to try to avoid eating too much of but her little smile is worth it. The boys are all doing well and getting bigger and noisier everyday you especially notice it on rainy days like today. Hubby is doing some work for his brother part time and continuing to network for new opportunities so I am helping as much as I can from my network and hopefully something good will come along soon. So I think that covers everyone. I will try to get back again to post soon and hopefully things will be running a little smoother then :)
