For the past couple of months, my brain has been much like my planner:


The first trimester of this pregnancy sucked all of the life out of me. 

I don't remember having been so zapped before.

Maybe it's because after taking care of 3 other children, there is not much life left in me at times.
Maybe it's because the onset of summer coincided with the 1st trimester.
Maybe I'm just getting OLD!

Well, whatever the reason is, I'm just glad to be back and feeling alive and full of energy once again!


My TO DO list overfloweth as I try to make up for lost time and recoup the damages caused by my 10 week hiatus from a normal functioning life.

Energy and motivation started seeping into me last Friday at my 13 week mark and I couldn't be happier about it.

This week so far....

I've scrubbed down nearly every door and jam in my house, washed the kitchen cabinets down, FINALLY put away the Easter decorations (an amazing feet, I know), washed the sliding glass door, actually made homemade laundry soap from the stuff I've been storing for months, made dinner every night (except for on my birthday) AND folded the laundry all by myself (believe me, Patrick was in a state of shock.)


All I can say is, bring it on!!!

YAY! Good for you. Being pregnant can be so hard at times. I can't imagine having 3 little ones to chase around on top of that. You are wonder woman Julie!

Please post a link show how to make the laundry detergant. I found one a while ago but didn't book mark it and I have been kicking myself. And a review of how you liked the homemade stuff. Also, how it works for He washers.

I enjoyed bumping into your blog tonight.
