Back In Commission

No pictures to post just yet. Hundreds to go through but just no time right now. It's amazing how life can get away from you when you stay in the bed for countless hours each day. Of course I've been tired...that's just part of it (being pregnant and all.) But this horrible, excruciating pain that I have had to suffer through recently has just knocked me out. For 9 days I literally could not function. That came on the tail-end of my first trimester ( in which I also spent a lot of time sleeping.)

God is good, however, and I am feeling so much better. The doctor was able to give me some great new medicine and I finally have some relief. I'm not sure why God wanted me to go through this trial, but I'm sure there was something I should have learned from it :) Maybe it's just to never take for granted the days that you do feel good!

Things on my to-do list:
  • clean house (really, really clean it)
  • go through maternity clothes that friends have offered. Unfortunately lots are out of season for me
  • catch up on pictures, editing and blogging
  • take a TON of things to Goodwill and prepare for our 2nd annual Care Because We Care at church.
  • finish preschool scrapbooks ----Oops! Move this to #1.
  • plant the garden
  • start my summer to-do list (i.e paint kitchen, paint Ella's room, decorate nursery, clean out closets, organize study/craft room)

That is just the beginning. I know I feel better because I couldn't even think about a to-do list just days ago.

*****Tonight we tried dinner at the little Italian place on the Square. Lucci's. I really like my pasta dish. Erik had a meatball sub and the girls had a homemade pizza. I am anxious to go back and try some of the other dishes. If you live close you should check it out!

  1. So glad you're feeling better, Kate!

  2. Your list makes me remember to get busy on my own! Now that Spring Break is here, I've got to get soooo much completed. Good luck with yours!

  3. Oh... almost forgot! I have "correct season" maternity clothes, if you think you can wear them! :) Let me know & I'll get them out and bring them to you.
