Well, as you know I'm expecting again, and I have totally been milking it.  The laundry is behind, I've let a lot of my organizing tasks go undone.. and let some areas I've organized turn back into an chaotic mess.  Story of my life.  I read a blog post over at The Scott's Crib about goal setting and just reading it made me get overwhelmed.  However, goal setting is important and I understand this.  I also understand that I am not at my usual energy level.  So whats a gal to do?  Well, I'm going to give myself 3 weekly goals.  I thought about 1 or 2 and it didn't seem like enough, and I didn't want to set a goal a day because some days I can barely take care of myself, let alone two boys and the house.

I thought about starting on Sunday... but that would just be my way of procrastinating.  So the idea popped in my head today.  My goals start today!

So by next Wednesday, it will be my goal to:

1.  Catch-up on all the laundry.  This may seem easy but it's seriously out of control... seriously!!  Catching up to me is washing, folding, and putting away.  I am very guilty of washing loads and loads, and piles of clean close accumulating on the floor until I can't tell whats clean and whats not.

2.  Wash the floors.  I initially have myself scheduled to do this every Friday... I don't care to admit the last Friday it actually got done.  I have done a bit of spot cleaning of the sticky spots... but seriously my floors need a good sweep, mop, and shine! Note to self: find a good natural floor shining solution.

3.  Move the Christmas boxes to the basement.  I did do a good job of storing my Christmas stuff all neat and organized.  However, it currently is stored in one of the closets under the stairs.  It is the closest closet to the playroom and I've been trying a system of swapping toys.  My husband and I have been guilty (in the past)  of indulging our inner child and purchasing a new toy or toys  on a whim.  This all ended around Munchkin's birthday.  I realized we had created a monster when he through a fit because he got a gift he didn't like (all I can say is thank the lord it was given to me a few days later while we were home alone, so no one was able to see the Munchkin's monster like behavior)  anyway... that was the last toy that came into our house.  It also was the beginning of the removal of toys from the playroom.  These toys need a home, while they are in exile, and we won't need the Christmas stuff until December... okay okay.. November.

So these are my goals.  Hopefully I can achieve them... hopefully.

Pregnancy Update: 

I am currently 15 weeks, 5 days pregnant.  Baby should be about the size of an avocado in a few days.

Here's how my senses have been affected so far.

Feelings:  I am still quite nervous, it's been a rough road and I find it hard to go a whole day without thinking something might go wrong.  I only feel flutters every couple days... I wish this kid would hurry up and start pounding so I can feel more relaxed.

Sights:  I'm starting to pop.  My husband and close family members have been able to tell for a while.. I think to strangers I just look like I have a huge gut.

Tastes: My cravings are simply unhealthy foods, can't stomach the smell of spinach... and lots of meat.  I'm always wanting some kind of meat.

Sounds:  Next Friday, I have another appointment.  This means I'll get to hear Jelly Bean again, and maybe even see him (maybe her.. it'll be a surprise.. but I really think it's baby boy # 3)

Smell:  I have a super human sense of smell, and most things I smell are offensive to me : (.

Have a wonderful and relaxed day.. I'll be back next week to let you know how things are going.  Do you have any goals for this week?... let me know!!
