Making Your Home a Haven Monday

Crystal's doing a weekly challenge this year on making your home a haven. Join in the fun at

My home has been anything but a haven lately as we returned from a big trip recently, had to sort and put away new things, and I've been on the roller coaster of morning, noon, and night sickness. However, I've had my limit of clutter and mess and so yesterday and today I have been forcing myself to get chores done and organize and put away. My husband helped a lot yesterday too, which got the ball rolling. Today's goals were:

*Have devotions with the kids--done
*Clear the endless clutter/papers off the table--done
*Fold 4 loads of laundry we did yesterday and put away--done
*Do an enormous sinkful of dishes--not done yet

My to-do lists are quite comical during this season of my life due to feeling so sick. I used to accomplish about 30 things in a day and now I'm doing good if I get one or two chores done a day. Tomorrow I plan to scrub the floor as I've been putting that off for a couple of weeks!

So, are you pregnant? That continual sickness is no fun, especially with two little ones needing things constantly. I hope you start feeling better soon!

I feel your pain! I have constant nausea, and although the tiredness has gone away, the run down, not wanting to move from the nausea and sickness hasn't! I can totally relate to your feelings of not getting as much done either! I have good moments and bad, and just try to do as much as possible during the good. My wonderful hubby has helped imensly with everything, from scrubbing floors to dinner to bathing Dawson. Things would be much slower getting done without him! Bless his heart after working a 10 plus hour day! If you hear any remidies please let me know. I am almost 12 weeks and praying it lets up soon! I was never this bad with my first pregnancy... but looking forward to the baby!!
