and almost another week & i haven't posted.
at least it was only a week :)
and what have i been doing in this week? not much. i believe it was mary evelyn who said pregnancy is 90% miracle & 10% freak show/alien living inside you?? (bev, you may just have to comment.)
i would have to agree. this little alien has been quite demanding. she's caused me to create what seems like a permanent dent in our couch. and she doesn't like laundry. or cooking.
but she does like to eat, though she's pretty picky & if she decides she doesn't want something to eat, she won't eat it! it's rough keeping up with her demands.
i'm trying to remind myself we only have 3-4 wks left of this craziness, but honestly i don't know if our house is going to make it. this morning we woke up to piles of laundry everywhere, toys galore adorning the floors, & maddie hair collections in the corners. (i'll spare you from describing the bathrooms.) and lest you think i'm really this clean freak that is just exaggerating the issue, let me share a conversation that really happened this weekend.
"where in the world are my boxers?? i've looked everywhere." -clint (as the poor man scavenges through various laundry piles.)
"did you look in your drawer?" -me (from the couch, of course)
"ooohhhh, that's where they are! i've been wondering!" -clint
really, it's that bad.
so this morning i've been defying the little alien & trying my darnedest (sp?) to get a few things done around here. a few piles of clothes have been put away (okay, clint did most of that but i'm still counting it), many have been folded, i actually got our sheets in the washer, started cleaning out the fridge, refilled our baby wipe boxes, made hudson breakfast & then a smoothie (the child is going through some kind of crazy growth spurt), AND took a shower already! whew! that's a full morning for me :)
maybe i need to lie down now...
