So it is officially Summer for my kids. The public school kids still have another week or so to go before they get out of school though. We had a wonderful busy weekend filled with friends, fun and garage sales. :)
I wouldn't trade these times for anything. Sitting in our friend's front yard watching the kids run through the slip-n-slide over and over. Lots of fun and great conversations. Michael being right by my side. It was awesome.
Until Monday morning when I realize how much catching up I need to do.
You see I have OCD a bit and really like to have my house clean. I go through this every year during the nicer weather and I have to readjust my expectations of what my house will look like. It just takes me a while to get there.
My parents and sister sent some wonderful stuff to us last week including maternity clothes that I am going to be needing soon. I am so thankful for the gifts. The only issue is doing all the laundry and finding places for everything they sent. That is on my list of things to do today since we were having fun all weekend.
I have like four loads of laundry to wash, dry and put away. I hate laundry. I try to find the good in it, but I just struggle. I will be joyful...I will be joyful. :) I have a huge laundry basket full of items that need to find places. The floors are covered with mud and grass from our crazy weekend.
I am just behind. I am way more tired this pregnancy so far than I wish I would be. I fizzle out around 10am and can't find my groove to keep working around the house. I just need to be ok with it all. There is nothing I can do about being tired.
I am thankful for the baby in my belly. I am thankful for my kids who are here to make all the messes. I am thankful to have Michael home. He is an amazing help.
