The Power of a Pregnant Woman

Yesterday, after dealing with an illness that could've been either a stomach bug or food poisoning, I spent 8 hours hooked up to IV fluids (6 bags). Everything is fine with the baby, and I'm starting to feel human again.

I'm so sorry I missed being with everyone who came to my baby shower, hosted by my dear neighbor. I'm glad y'all were still able to have a nice, fancy playgroup day. I am thankful my mother-in-law was able to keep the kids yesterday and that they all had a wonderful time together.

After bringing them home today, I should've used their love for all things Backyardigans and popped in a movie for them while I put my feet up. Instead, I decided it was a perfect time to:

  • clean out the fridge
  • vacuum all 3 floors of our house
  • clean up the playroom, twice (I gave up the third time)
  • do 3 loads of laundry
  • write a rather uninspired post for The Ultimate Blog Party
  • clean up both kids' rooms so they can be painted tomorrow (the rooms - not the kids)
Here's to all the moms and moms-to-be out there who would've done the same thing. We may be foolish and stubborn, but boy are we strong!

You put me to shame. I can't get that much done in a week!

I should get pregnant again just for the motivation... um, no.

Thanks for stopping by my blog party the other day. So glad you and the baby are doing well.
