Sorry for the lack of posting this week, but the energy that I had has left me. I hope it is temporary…but I’m not sure. When I was pregnant with my daughter 5 years ago once I hit the exhausted stage, it never left until I delivered her. I keep telling myself that this pregnancy is different, because I was in pretty good shape when I got pregnant, but I’m still not completely convinced.
I haven’t been sleeping very well, so that may be part of it. With this 3 day weekend, I have been able to sleep in a little bit more, so I hope that helps.
I have been continuing with the cleaning here and there. The mornings are my best bet to get something done. I did get the coat closet cleaned out and 2 bags went to Goodwill.
Also, I got our game closet cleaned out. I took the games that no one plays with and put them on a shelf in the basement. If no one plays with them for a while, they are going to Goodwill too.
Our basement is about as clean as it can get. I am amazed that we have gotten this far! We need to move a big self with extra food on it to a better spot and put up another bookshelf or two.
I also am working on the laundry room shelves to make them more functional. I cleaned off 4 of the stationary shelves and I talked my husband into putting wheels on the wire shelf in the laundry room so that I can move it and clean under it. It has been nice to have the shelf, but it is too low to clean under, so that has made it a pain. With 6 kids I need to clean under it regularly. Also, we have a gravel driveway and this is our main entrance into the house with the kids, so tons of debris come in with them.
We are making good progress. Most of the work is being done by others in the house right now. I just don’t have the energy. But done is done!
Tomorrow I will be 27 weeks. This pregnancy is going pretty fast. A break in the heat would be really nice. I can’t decide if it is the heat or the baby sucking all of my energy. I’m hoping for the heat. Even if I don’t end up getting more energy, I have gotten a lot done in preparation for this baby!
Here are a couple of pictures of the coat closet. I forgot to get the before, but I at least got the during. I hope you have a great long weekend!
A lot of stuff pulled out of the closet and put on the steps to reorganize.
Another pile going to Goodwill!
Yet more stuff to get organized.
The bottom of the coat closet all cleaned out!
