Oh, so hard to blog..

I wish so dearly I could get myself to blog regularly. This is supposed to be my way of journaling for my kids. If I ever think to sit down and blog, my mind just draws a blank. So, I decided I'm just going to write about nothing....

I don't think I've officially blogged this yet but I will, just for the journaling record. I'm pregnant! :D I know, you guys already know that, but....

I've had an ultrasound and found out that my due date is a little earlier than I thought it was...only five days but that is so much better than it being later than I thought it was! So, I'm due September 18th. Although I always wish for twins each pregnancy, I already found out that there's only one baby in ther..one cute little wee one that was already sucking it's fingers.

This pregnancy has been a very mild one...no morning sickness at all except one morning when it hadn't even crossed my mind yet that I might be pregnant, I had one sweep of nausea and that was it for the entire career of this pregnancy! However, I am still super, super tired and majorly lazy. I mean LAZY! I don't clean, don't do laundry, hardly cook...well, that was even before...just kidding, I don't cook as often as I usually do. Rrrgh, I don't like feeling like this. I hate seeing the house deteriorate even worse than it usually does. Our house is beginning to really stink and I don't even have the oomph to start scrubbing out the corners. It then depresses all of us. The very, very good side of it is that the older girls have really learned how to pull their weight and get it all done when need be. They even started to sort out a load of clothes for themselves and their buddies so everyone gets a few clean outfits again this week.

On the brighter note, I am so happy I still have been able to run to an extent. Not as often as before and not as far and even not as far within the run before I have I walk for a bit due to being short of breath...but, I am still getting it about four times per week. Plus, I'm still doing both martial arts classes and keeping up, despite a whopping ten pound weight gain already in 13 weeks of being pregnant! :(

Well, that's all I can think of...

Oh, except our baby has begun to walk! One day, she went from standing to taking five steps..not one step first, but five! The soon that same night she was taking seven. That was about two weeks ago. Now, yesterday, she took up to fourteen steps two different times,men a few times, six a couple times! I don't know who's more excited, us or her!

Alright, more later!

Oh, it's so nice you've been feeling well! What a treat!!

Exciting that the little Princess is walking! I can just picture how high the household excitement is, and hear (in my mind) as you guys are counting steps! So fun!!

Oh, just enjoy relaxing for a little while ;) I'm sure it won't be long before you get a rush of motivation to do some spring cleaning.

Darla - I didn't know you even had a blog until I clicked on your name and saw your journals. How fun to read about your happenings. As Tonya said, that day will come when you will do spring cleaning. It is like that over here too and especially on days that I work. I do somethings some days and other days not too much. For you, it isn't easy when you are working and pregnant. Take care of yourself too!

Thanks, Deanna. Yeah, I've had this blog since maybe 2006 or 2007... I just never think to tell anyone about it. :) welcome! It is a good way to keep stories of our life and keep track of memorable moments.. I got a couple moments of energy this past week and started mucking through the basement, then lost my momentum as my little kids revved theirs up and destroyed my progress! Hey, at least I know I got some stuff done! :)
