Taking Back My Life

So it's safe to say that 2.0 as we've so affectionately dubbed this baby is wreaking havoc on me. My first trimester has been full of morning sickness and just plain exhaustion, but to add the fun let's throw in a stomach virus which landed me in the hospital to get IV fluids because I couldn't even keep water down, oh and just for kicks how about ear infections in both ears a week later.

This pregnancy has been much harder and I truly hate to complain because I know what a blessing I have been given but sometimes being pregnant sucks!

You can assume that since I've been down and out my home and life organization has gone pretty much to the dogs, well and the cat.... oh and the three year old :(

For the last three months I've done well to keep up the bare minimum of what needed to be done at home. But yesterday, I hit 13 weeks and I can feel my sickness starting to give. I'm hoping that means it'll be smooth sailing from here on out. That means it's time to take back my home, my routines, and well basically my life.

I'm starting small with a few simple goals.

1. wake up at least a half hour before Carys to have my Bible Study and Quiet Time.

2. eat all meals at the table.

I'll hopefully update at the end of this week with how well these things are going and hopefully be able to add to them each week. I just really want my life and home to have some semblance of order again.

Until Next Time,

Mrs. A

I try to have quiet time every day, too. Getting up before she does is the tricky part. :)
