The Struggle is Real

   I don't like to complain... really, I don't.  I know a lot of people are going through harder times than I am right now but since this is my little piece of the internet... I'm going to allow myself a mini vent session.  We're all entitled to one once in a while, right?

   So, our house has been hit with some type of crazy lingering virus that is super annoying and energy sucking.  I'm 22 weeks pregnant and I've been coughing like an 80 yr old smoker for the past week and a half and sick with a sinus infection for at least 2 weeks before that.  I've been on a couple antibiotics and steroids and nothing is kicking this mess.  I've taken Maddox to the doctor several times for his cough and he has been on antibiotics for ear infections.  Darren has the mess now too.  I just need someone to come in and fumigate my house and get the ickies out.

   There are so many things I want to do but haven't had the energy or brain power to get any of it done.  So here is a list of things I need/want to do in the next coming weeks.

~We are going to put our house on the market in June (which is creeping up very quickly) and move in o my parents' basement for a little while to pay off some debt (and have some help with the baby... selfishly).  So there is lots of packing and organizing and cleaning to be done. 
~I want to do a couple of posts about Maddox because he's growing so fast and there are so many things I want to remember but then the task just seems daunting to me because I haven't done one in so long so there are lots of pictures to do something with. <insert eye roll emoji>
~I haven't even started a registry for baby #2.... our sweet little boy that has yet to be given a name.
~Take some updated pictures of Maddox and WITH Maddox.

   Really... with all that is going on (Darren working 2 jobs and going to school, me 5.5 months pregnant and trying to keep up with a busy toddler and working part time), that's all I can really allow myself to focus on. 

   I'm actually glad that's "all" we need to focus on.  It could be worse and has been worse.  My mind has definitely been the freest it has been over the past year or so than it has been in many years so I'm grateful for that.  I'm going to try not to think about the fact that we are moving from a two bedroom to a two bedroom place so baby #2 will be bounced around a little.  But... it's only temporary and he won't know the difference.  We are really only planning on staying there for a year or so and then we will either build or buy something.  It's a good plan in theory :)  We'll see how it plays out for real.

Anyway... that's all I have for the moment.
