The list seemed ENDLESS! But, oh, the things I could get done with just the baby along for the ride. Can't you just imagine?!
Would you like to know what I got done? I bet you would!
Well........ I spent the entire week being literally sucked into the world of Edward Cullen and Isabella Swan. You read right - the ENTIRE week! All those plans of finishing the kids' bedrooms, painting every room in the house, working on any craft project I decided and finishing my brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law's wedding present. It all seemed so doable in my mind's eye!
And, then I picked up Twilight.
This confession has helped me feel some better; but, knowing the opportunities for such weeks are few and far between, keeps the irksome feeling I have at my lack of self-control at the forefront.
The only other thing that makes me feel a little bit (and I do mean little bit) better is the fact that the morning sickness set in that week. (Yep. Little bundle #5 is on the way and will arrive at the end of March.) Morning sickness bad enough that I had trouble smelling the cleaners while scrubbing down the upstairs bathroom. I couldn't even imagine opening all the paint cans that waited for their turns to be put on our bare walls.
So, a huge apology to my wonderful mother for wasting the time that was gifted to me. But, I do truly appreciate the time that I was able to lay on the couch most of the day and not have to take care of all 4 kids the first week of my yucky morning sickness. I'll just have to wait patiently for my next opportunity at such a week.
But, that wedding present has a deadline of Sept. 5 th. Hoping to be able to share that triumph with you all soon!
