I think I did too much yesterday. Valerie slept unusually late, so I had a few hours to myself in the morning. I cleaned my kitchen, cleaned the living room a bit, washed clothes, and tried to de-clutter. I also made some flowers for my final cake for class. Played with Valerie. Then yesterday afternoon I decided I just HAD to get out of the house, so we went to the Dollar Tree and Ross. It was SO hot going from the car to the store. And I was so tired just from getting Val out of the carseat. (I did manage to find some adorable maternity clothes at Ross!!!) By the time I got home, I felt so bad. I was hurting and feeling all crampy. I thought for sure I had hurt myself somehow. I had a hard time sleeping last night because I just felt so bad. Not nauseated or anything - just bad. That's pretty much how I felt for 9 months with Valerie. I never felt like myself. I always felt "off." We'd go somewhere, and I'd almost pass out. And that is how this pregnancy is turning out to be too. I just don't make a good pregnant lady. I wish I felt good and could enjoy it more, but it's so hard when you feel bad every day all day. I have no energy at all. It's so hard to do anything or go anywhere. There's so many things I want to do, but I just don't see how. I can't keep up with anything around the house. I think I've decided to talk to Clint about hiring a cleaning lady. I'm thankful the morning sickness is not as bad as it was the first time, but part of me still dreads the 7+ months to come when this is just the beginning.

  1. A cleaning lady would be a good way to go. A lot of peopole out here use themeven if it's once or twice a month, instead opf weekly. Thanks for the feeback about Chicken Little. I read other peoples review & a lot of peopledidn't find it that good so I took it off my queue.
