I've been walking a ton as well (I figure if I don't have a job at least I'll be fit, ha!). My goal is to walk the boys to and from school come rain or shine. It's half a mile each way so I get to log 2 miles a day! In addition I try to do at least one long walk per week about 3-5 miles and if I need one or two things from the grocery store I'll walk instead of drive. The first full week the kids were in school I walked 15 miles and that's impressive only because that's up from maybe 1 mile a week, haha! I tell ya it's hard to stay active when you're caring for triplets full time (I was never much for pushing a 100+ pound strollers and my guys didn't really like riding in them anyways).
I'm also looking for part time work in my old field. I applied to two jobs already and I actually interviewed for one but sadly I did not get the position. I was surprised I got an interview so quickly and hoping its a good sign. It might take a while or it may not, either way I'm happy to stay home for now as there is lots to keep me busy! Taking care of a family of 5 is no simple task even with the kids being in school. I don't know how families with two full time working parents do it. If I went back to work full time I'd have to hire a housekeeper, cook, nanny and landscaper, ha!
Anyways, can you believe these stinkers turn 6 tomorrow?!!!

Pizza bagels were a big hit!

Only one boy liked the quiche so I guess that means I'm never making these again : (
