ew

That's how I've felt the past couple of days. Just...ew. I don't like being sickly. Nothing gets done around here, except extra sleep, sorta. Can't breathe = can't sleep. Which means lots of dozing off, but no staying passed out. It's okay though. Yesterday I did manage to get 3 loads of laundry done. Wasn't too bad. Today I actually cooked dinner and did a load of dishes. So I guess a few things did get done, just not as much as usual. Speaking of laundry, I have been good at sticking to my commitment of folding and putting away the laundry as soon as it's done (except yesterday, but it's manageable since it's only one small basket full that needs folding) and it's been sooo nice. It's made things less stressful around here. Funny how kept up laundry has made our life easier! But we're not having to go on a scavenger hunt for clean socks or undies or under shirts or whatever. With everything always put away, the kids (and hubby) (and me) always know where their clothes are and what's clean and what's not. Mornings have become SO much easier and faster. I'm thankful for that.

I have not been quite so good at sticking to my schedule. I'm great at making it! Just not so much at keeping to it. I want to though. I'm going to try and do better. It's on my prayer list. That I can be motivated more or something like that. I'll be glad to feel better, that'll help to. I can say that even though our fast is over, I'm still getting up earlier than everyone else (most days) and having a little quiet time and that's been amazing. I can't believe I was letting myself miss out on that for so long. I have a lot of trouble waking up on the nights Jonyn wakes up a lot and doesn't sleep well. He typically wakes up twice to nurse and that I can deal with. More than that, not so much... But I feel different on the days I don't have quiet time. I can tell something is missing from my day. So I'm trying so hard to make it a habit, that's also on my prayer list, that I can become a lover of mornings!!!

About my prayer list... I finally went out and got a cheap-y notebook to use as a prayer journal of sorts. I just drew a big line down the middle of the page and on the left side I write my prayer requests down (the ones for my life and requests from others) and on the right side, I am putting the answers to those requests. I'm just finally to a point where I'm tired of saying, "Yes, I'll pray for you." And then never following through with my promise. My goal is to prayer over these each day. It's just been on my heart that I need to do this. And I feel like an awful person for always saying I'm praying, then not ever doing it. I have to change. And for me to change, it takes action from me. And prayer. So from now on when I say I'll pray, I'm really going to do it! For real! And that really makes me excited!

Okay, I'm going to upload some photos, get the kiddos in bed (past their bedtime!!) and snooze myself!

Goodnight peeps...
