I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this but once every 6 months or once a year I like to write down every single thing I do every day (kinda like my day-in-the-life posts but without pictures). I save them and absolutely love to look back on them.
I have one from when Payson was a newborn and had severe colic and we were selling our house and having it shown many times a week and I included what I was feeling while I was doing the things I was doing and I just TREASURE that little list!
So today I did the same thing. I didn’t write down my feelings because they were pretty darn simple and would look like this:
“I feel nauseated but happy that I’m getting stuff done. I wish it was 5 weeks from now.” Repeat
Start washing machine
Change Payson’s diaper
Sweep all tile (holy crap there’s a lot)
Wash 1 load of dishes
Payson to bed
Move laundry to dryer
Start new load of laundry
Organize the day’s school work, make needed copies
Start kids on school work. Specifically handwriting (Brooklyn is doing handwriting without tears for the second time)
Eat a small handful of tropical trail mix
Start kids on math
Fold three loads of laundry
Eat slice of bread
Feed the girls a snack
Talk about the priviledge of using crayons with the girls, let them color (we had yet another coloring on furniture incident last week)
Fold another load of laundry
Refill girls’ water
Move laundry to the dryer
Start another load in the washing machine
Help Sierra with rhyming (even though she previously rocked at rhyming, she kept doing alliteration today instead!)
Put away dry dishes
Wash another load of dishes
Iron Allan’s work shirts
Help Brooklyn with telling time
Payson’s up from nap
Eat lunch with kids
Check voicemail. 5 new messages, think to myself that I should check it more often
Clean up from lunch
Finish ironing (hallelujah)
Switch laundry from washer to dryer
Start washing machine again (final load!)
Spend a good hour helping the girls with school (total of the day probably 3 hours with the girls on school work, they spent a good 5 hours on school work)
Give kids a bath
Make bed while kids are in bath
Talk to the pest control guy on the phone (give him driving directions)
Get the kids dressed
Talk to the pest control guy at the door, Payson screams hysterically.
Take 5 minute shower
Get dressed, do makeup, don’t do hair
Pack the diaper bag with snacks and diapers
Talk to Allan on the phone
Meet Allan and drive together to the OBGYN
Change Payson’s poopy diaper in the back of the car.
See baby and baby’s heartbeat, hear baby’s heartbeat. Feel very emotional.
Quick trip to Sprouts for gluten-free crackers and citra-solv
Trip to Costco for rice milk and cream of mushroom soup. End up stocking up on stuff and spending $120.
Stop at the dollar store on the way home so the girls can pick out a toy because they did well with their chores this week.
Drive home, feeding Payson crackers on the way.
Allan unloads car while I start dinner.
Allan talks with kids at table while I blog. (I usually talk with them but let Allan have alone time today)
Feel completely and utterly exhausted at 6:30pm!
And last but not least, today’s picture of the day.
Blog world, meet baby at 7 weeks 2 days along.
We saw his/her little heart beating and heard it (150 bpm) and that’s about it, just a white blob for now. But he/she is my sweet little white blob. lol
