Small Successes-June 2nd


Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. I survived a nasty stomach bug that caused me to lose five pounds in three days.  I can't tell you how upset I am that I lost so much weight.  I tried really hard to get above my pre-pregnancy weight so I wouldn't get questioned about my lack of weight gain [again] at my next OB appointment this Friday and it turned out to be a total fail.  I am once again below where I started.  I know this isn't going to go over well when I'll be two days shy of 22 weeks tomorrow.  The good news is I was able to eat and drink a decent amount of food yesterday and just about all of it stayed in me.  Yay!

2. As a direct result of being sick, the laundry piled up all over the house.  There was a mountain of clothing in the laundry room and on the basement steps that apparently only I could see needed my attention yesterday.  There was also a huge pile of clean clothes on the living room floor that needed to be sorted, folded and put away.  Yesterday I sorted and folded those clothes.  They're patiently waiting in neatly folded piles to be put where they belong.  I also rounded up all the rogue laundry that was found in the bedrooms and bathrooms.

3. I think on last Friday's day late Small Successes post I mentioned that I painted the baby's room last Friday.  I also assembled the crib, put Ellie's old girly bedding in the crib.  On Sunday, before I became incredibly ill, we brought the shade and decorative curtain rod for the baby's room.  I'd love to tell you that those are installed and pretty white sheers are currently hanging on the window, but Bryan hasn't gotten around to it yet.  Perhaps "tomorrow" didn't mean Monday, but rather means whenever I get so annoyed that the job isn't done that I decide to do it myself.  I thought he was going to install them on Tuesday night after he mentioned needing to get some tools from the garage, but he never came back upstairs.  I suppose he got lost.  He did find his laptop and favorite chair in the family room so I guess he didn't get too disoriented.  Maybe I'll install the shade and decorative rod in a little bit.  How hard can it be?  I've installed curtain rods before, but never a shade.


  1. Hope you feel better soon! Prayers for you and your pregnancy!

  2. At least your doctor isn't yelling at you to stopping gaining so much weight!! I heard that through every one of mine! Wait...I think he may stil be telling me that today, and I'm not even pregnant!
