I am currently frustrated because I had planned on snapping some pictures for this blog post this morning.  Currently it is raining and I was planning on going out and taking more flower pictures. I am a bit dissapointed by the rain, but I will admit, sitting her looking out the window, it looks nice and fresh. Does that make sense to anyone other than me?

Stopping myself with coming with new projects for my business is becoming a difficult task. The problem is, that most of these projects need money to complete and I am getting in a habit of spending more than I am bringing in. If I keep it up, this will spell disaster! But…. I can’t stop coming up with ideas!! Maybe if I just finished the projects I started I wouldn’t loose money on them.. there’s an idea..

I need to start spending more quality time with the kids. I miss having fun with them, but right now it just seems so hard (bad mother award goes to me..). This pregnancy is kicking my butt. I am sick, and now I am having a lot of hip pain, back pain and stretching pain. Between that and the stress of running my business I am pretty tired most days and my patience wears thin. Add that to a 3 year old who cries from the moment he wakes up, because for some reason he has decided that talking to us accomplishes nothing, a 4 year old who is working on her argumenting/negotation skills and a 1.5 year old who has just learned that it is possible to say no, and protest and make it very clear what she wants… and I am all to glad for bedtime. Seriously, my kids are so overwhelming right now. And. I. Hate. It. part of the problem is me. They are not getting the best me they should. So.. I need to start spending more quality time with them. No more TV, no more mobile phone. Just us and them.

I am starting to feel better and worse at the same time. My morning sickness is not an everyday, all day thing. However when it does hit, it usually knocks me to the couch for a minimum of 5 hours. The moment I stand up and do something I puke. But I can deal with this once or twice a week. The feeling sick everyday all day was really getting to me. I am also not as tired as I was. Again, sometimes it still hits me and I may have fallen asleep on the couch before the kids a few evenings in the past week, but I no longer feel the need to sleep until 9.30 or 10 am every day then take a nap again at 12. However, pain is my new friend. Horrible hip pain with a side of back pain. The last couple of days I have also been having some stretching pain and some braxton hips. I am only just under 13 weeks.. it’s gonna be a long pregnancy!
