I must be nearing the end of the first trimester

While pregnant, I don't set my expectations too high. I try to accomplish what's necessary for daily living; cooking, dishes, laundry and clean bathrooms, and anything beyond that is considered a major achievement. An added bonus if you will.
Today I actually had some energy - a first for the past few months - and put it to good use. I cleaned and swept the living room/dining room/kitchen with some help with Karl, made muffins and yogurt, had some ladies in for tea, thus creating more dishes than normal, got them all washed, dried and put away, did all the laundry in the house, including folding it, ironing what needed to be ironed, and putting it away, cleaned my fridge and freezer, cleaned the fish bowl, and started organizing a stack of paper work I've been meaning to get to. Whew! I don't think I'll feel like getting out of bed tomorrow, but how thankful I am for that bit of cleaning ability today!


  1. You can't be nesting this early!

  2. Not nesting exactly, more like catching up! My goal had been to get my whole house clean and organized before I became pregnant again, but with all the illness we had around here that didn't happen. Therefore, my new goal is to try and get as close to that as I can before Baby comes, and I know for me that needs to start now. I never know when I'll have energy or be put on bed rest (though I'm really hoping that doesn't happen this time around).

  3. Goodness! I'll have a dose of that, please!
