I need a housekeeper

June 29th, 2009

It’s Sunday night and unfortunately the house is a wreck and dishes are piled up and I just CANNOT force myself to do it tonight. I’m so tired I just want to be totally lazy.

And I don’t think I can really blame the pregnancy either. I am going to be 14 weeks Tuesday, and I really haven’t felt the fatigue or nautiousness I felt in the beginning for a few weeks. I kinda just feel like a loser because I know people with more kids and more help than me that seem to keep their housework up! And I really have some catching up to do – floors, bathrooms … ugh. OK I just had to vent. I’ll make some lists and tackle it all the next few days.

We actually had a pretty low-key weekend. Fun family birthday party/father’s day party at Sara’s Saturday night. Beautiful weather. And the kids had a blast on a slip n slide. I do regret not getting asking someone to babysit Sunday. I’m really in need of a fun adults night. Movie and dinner. Sounds wonderful.

Ella and I did clean out the nursery a little this weekend. Luckily she’s already moved into her “big girl’s” room, so hopefully she won’t feel like she’s getting kicked out. Anyway, she went through all her little baby toys – rattles and tiny stuffed animals and blocks, and it was so cute. She really loved seeing it all and seemed to remember some of it. And when Steve came in the room she said “Daddy, I’m going to share my toys with the baby!” Very sweet. Then she wanted to sleep in her crib for her nap that day. So I let her. She looked so cute, and so big in her crib. It was kinda weird to think that may be her last time in that crib. She will not be the baby anymore soon.

Speaking of that baby though, she’s just crawled in bed with me, so I think it’s time to call it a night.

    That’s so sweet that she is already talking about sharing with the baby. She will be a wonderful big sister. You will be surprised. She will be really helpful… at times!! :-)

    Wait, why aren’t you blaming the pregnancy for being tired. Isn’t always having an excuse, um reason, to get out of doing unpleasant tasks one of the bonuses of being pregnant?
