Small Successes for August 19, 2010:
1) Ok, I'm not completely caught up on laundry this week, but I'm getting there. I just have a couple more loads today and then I can take a small breath before starting all over again.
2) The kids and I tackled the "pit of despair", or the basement/wreck room last Friday. It wasn't as bad as I feared, but it wasn't as good as I hoped. I avoid the basement at all costs, but it is the area I store all our school books that we have used and will not be needing for the current school year. Obviously, since I was organizing the school cupboard, a trip to the basement was inevitable. The children cleaned and I directed traffic, as well as reorganized the bookshelves so they will be able to find reading material more easily. Time will tell how long the basement will stay this way, but I shouldn't need to head down there anytime soon ;)
3) Baby and I are 17 weeks into this pregnancy and doing pretty well. I'm definitely feeling movement--hooray! My clothes are feeling a little snug, but I haven't had to dig out the maternity wear, just yet. I know it's coming soon. I did order a "tummy sleeve" which should mean I can wear regular clothing just a bit longer. I know I'll get sick and tired of my maternity clothes soon enough. The longer they stay in the bin, the better!
