I will admit that since becoming pregnant with baby #2 a lot of things have began to slide around our house. My house is not clean, the laundry in my room has no home now that my maternity drawer has taken over, I've got furniture that needs to find a home, my living room is trashed on a daily basis and I don't bother dealing with it until the end of the day... The list goes on.
Is it getting any better? Yes and No. Noah is now responsible for cleaning up his mess at the end of the day and that works for me. We created an adult space and a toy area in the the lgreat room now and that has helped big time as well.
Now that the pure exhaustion has subsided I'm wanting to get my normal back. I want a clean house. The bathrooms have been deep cleaned and that felt amazing to accomplish! More than anything I want to be organized. I still haven't found all my napkins I put away... And am stuck using the smallest cocktail napkins I received as a gift.
I want everything to have a home and if it doesn't have one... It goes. When we went through Noah's big boy room, that room hadn't been gone through since we moved here. It just piled up and after going through it and getting rid of soo much, I'm ready for the next challenge. It felt good getting rid of stuff.
So my plan is to tackle a job at least every other day, from small tasks to big tasks. Our biggest household goal right now is to get Noah's big boy room done! We also need to get the basement organized, as that is where a lot of the furniture went from the previous spare room. If we can accomplish these three goals by the end of the month I will feel back on track. We are off to good start though.
I know in my mind that the most important things are taken care, we have a healthy and happy little boy, a happy marriage, and a baby on the way... clearly the mess will wait for us. I am aware that life is only about to get a little more chaotic and that we are all going to have to step our game. We will rely on asking for help, even if it's just for someone to watch the kids so we can maintain a clean house. One thing I do plan on is having a cleaning company come in before I have the baby, so the house will be starting off clean, then it will hopefully just be maintenance by us afterwards. I feel like I owe it to ourselves after the disaster we brought Noah home to during a renovation! There will be no renovations this time around if it can be helped!
So there you have it - that is where my mind has been at and blogging daily will not be a priority. I will still make an effort obviously, but instead of trying to get 5 posts out a week, I may aim for 3 here on in, still enough to keep an update with what's going on in our lives.
