Outside my window... It's raining, it's pouring, I wish I could be snoring . . . . but the kids always seem to want breakfast in the morning. Who got that idea started? Sheesh.
I am thinking: that I have some truly awesome friends. I went to my Rosary group on this dreary, dark morning and lo and behold, there was a cake! and balloons! and some lovely tiny baby things! waiting for me. By the time you get to baby #5, a party is just not something on your radar anymore. It's heartwarming to know that I have people in my life who are excited to welcome yet another wild kid of mine. Plus, what better place and context to say the Rosary? Thanks, ladies!
I am wearing: whatever fits these days . . . I am so sick of my limited wardrobe that I'd love to go buy new things, but my sensible side won't let me. (although I might have to sneak in a little something new for Easter . . . if I make it that long!)
I am going: nowhere fast these days. My time out of the house has become seriously curtailed, mostly due to my girth and the exhaustion involved in getting everyone into coats and car seats. I figure it's good practice for when the baby comes and I never leave the house again (at least not for a little while anyway).
From the kitchen: I have some bananas that are so ripe they marched up to me and begged me to put them out of their misery and turn them into banana bread. I am also thinking a lot about potato leek soup -- I may just have to make a pot.
Around the house: Rob and I have started to dig around and find some of the baby things we'll need. A benefit to child #5 -- we already have the inventory of a Babies-R-Us in our storage room. It just needs to be pulled out and cleaned.
On my mind: Bun turns TWO in one week. Where is the time going?
A few plans for the rest of the week: I really need to get back onto my cleaning schedule. If I'm being honest, I would say that I abandoned my schedule way back in my first trimester when I was just struggling to stay upright thanks to nausea and exhaustion. But that schedule was just the thing I needed to make sure I stay on track and I need to start up -- before I have a newborn and need to jump ship again!
A picture thought I am sharing:>
