just stuff

Last night, we didn't really try to fall asleep til about midnight. I was already super tired, but was waiting on my honey to make his way to bed. I crashed fast. And it was one of those hard sleeps. I'm enjoying them while I can, because you know the last month or so means no sleep for me. I was sleeping so hard that I didn't even realize I needed a bathroom break until it was incredibly painful.
I guess after my last post, I felt more motivated to take care of some stuff around here. Or maybe it was just that I needed to get those feelings out there. Either way, the front part of my house got cleaned. Floors mopped and vacuumed. Surfaces cleared of clutter. Dishes totally taken care of. All the laundry caught up. Diapers even got washed. It felt good. But dude, I so paid for it that night and the next day. I hurt, my head hurt, everything just hurt.

But things are staying semi-clean and straightened. It was not an exaggeration to say that every single room in my house needed some attention. Now it's just all the back rooms. The two littles totally destroyed my bedroom. And their own. The bathrooms need to be scrubbed. I put on my scruffy clothes this morning with plans to do some major scrubbing after we finish up school today. Which should be before lunch. And which I will totally pay for with pain tonight, but it's gotta get done.
And by the way, I will be kind of glad when school is over. I have some stuff I want to do to the house before Peanut makes his arrival. Let's pray it's no later than July 3rd, mkay? Plus, I've been so cranky that I'm ready to not have to be on their case about getting their work done.

And also, we may have his name picked out already. This is early for us, but my Mom suggested a name that I had passed over before. It just felt right when I added the middle name to it. Even Daddy-o loves it. Though he's the only hold up to announcing it. He says he's thinking about it, but honestly, it's the name. I feel it in my gut. I always feel it when it's right, at least for the first name, which for me, is the most important. And unlike with Brennen, I'm ready to share with the world what this precious baby will be called. But, as I said, we're waiting on the definite yes from Daddy.
And this boy above, geez, he's sweet. So lovey. He loves to be loved on so much. We've managed to give away three kittens. We still have four left, two boys, two girls. As sweet as that little booger is, I still don't want to keep any of the kittens. It's just too much between kids and pets. We are down to one dog and one cat, and I'd like to keep it that way for a while. In fact, I do not want anymore pets for a really really long time, even after Missy is gone.

I'm trying really hard to not be that yell-y mom. But I so am. And trying to get the big kids to finish up morning chores in a timely manner is so painful and frustrating. Nothing changes. I made that cute little check list for them, but they won't just do it and be done. So any day they don't do it in a timely manner, they do not get their hour of video game time. So far, it's not working out so well, so I need a new plan. *sigh. The trials of motherhood. Some are big, some small. And while a lot will say that each day brings it's new trials... in my house, I'm pretty sure each day brings the same trials over and over and over again. oh yes, motherhood, it is different for each of us.
