35 Weeks

Sean is 35 weeks today. Only 3 more weeks until Sean has been outside of my stomach as long as he was inside! (He was born exactly at 38 weeks). Things that I have learned:

1. I’m definitely not always the one in charge
2. The extra baby weight doesn’t melt off magically and instantly like I hoped
3. Self-time daily to replenish my well being is very important
4. It is okay for him to cry…well sometimes
5. There is no snooze button on Sean's alarm clock
6. Always be prepared with bibs and bottles wherever I go
7. Getting laundry done, has become a new accomplishment
8. He is only a baby once, I must cherish every moment
9. I shouldn't laugh when he gets his cute crying face after I say no.
10. Baby-proofing the house is definitely in need. This kid is very mobile.

My mother's house keeper Anna came over today and spent 7 hours cleaning my house. My bathroom is spotless (and dust-free from the grouting (all done!) and my floors are all washed, carpets vaccumed, fridge was even cleaned out to the shine. But, I did do some work myself today. I did go through my clothes and get rid of whatever I didn't want (I gave them to Anna and she goes through first for herself and the rest she sends back to Poland for her sister & family). I re-organized where I am keeping my clothes now, because my closet was just not convenient. (Using the closet for other storage purposes). I got a LOT done on the new shopping cart for my website. That should be up & running VERY shortly! (I am very excited for that). And I got every last pieces of laundry done. Nothing has to be washed. I feel great knowing that I'm going away for the weekend, and the laundry is all done.

Have you seen this really cool art? I would love to do something like this in my house! (Maybe after I move!)

My friend Patty is hosting a mitten swap if anyone is interested. You can check it out here. (Sorry Patty for the delay in mentioning it)

I also lack in mentioning that not too long ago I won a little contest over at Raesha's blog. A cool Target environmentally friendly shopping tote. I can't wait to get it in the mail.

No knitting tonight, but there will be tomorrow on our 8 hour drive to Mississauga. (Last time it took us 8 hours to get there, including traffic). I'm almost all packed, Sean's stuff is not, but that will take me a few minutes in the morning to do.

I'm going to try to get to bed early tonight, not really feeling too well. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night all congested and with a sore throat. Right now I'm feeling okay, but I wasn't last night. Sean's doing better today, but he still has a little bit of a runny nose, and I've been giving him tempra every 4 hours or so. I am hoping we both don't get worse!

Sorry to hear that you and Sean are sick. I haven't been feeling too well myself lately ... but that's what I get for working in health care!

Have a great time on your trip!
