One of those SuperMom Days

Today was one of those days where I just totally kicked butt and felt like Supermom. Maybe something magically happens when you cross that 13 week mark into the second tri-mester and energy suddenly reappears and you can conquer the world. Or maybe it was just an anomaly and it will never happen again. Either way, I'm very proud of my accomplishments today:

Made dinner in the crock pot
Made dinner rolls from scratch for the first time (they were awesome!)
Paid bills
Cleaned both toilets, which were totally nasty
Vacuumed the whole apartment
Did five loads of laundry
Cleared out Jonah's room which was still full of boxes and miscellaneous junk
Unpacked and organized three lingering boxes in our bedroom that I've been dreading
Loaded, ran, and unloaded the dish washer
Cleaned a stain Jonah made on the carpet this morning
Served dinner by 6:00
And of course the normal duties of feeding, bathing, diapering, nose wiping and entertaining a very active toddler! Whew!

It's wonderful to have productive days like that! I had a bit of an energy kick myself earlier this week, which unfortunately took its toll after 3 nights of staying up past midnight organizing! It was nice while it lasted, though. :) I guess I forgot I am still pregnant and have limits. :)

Sounds like you had a great day! It's nice to go to bed feeling like you were productive instead of feeling like you have of list of things to do that you never got to.

Good for you! I'm still being regularly nagged by the nativity set that has migrated from the family room to my kitchen desk but still hasn't actually been put away...among other things. :-)

Wait a minute - is that your way of telling us your pregnant or did I miss that somewhere!? Congratulations!!!

I don't know if I've commented before, but I've been following your blog for a while (and by the way, it sounds like you are doing SUCH a fabulous job as a mom).

I'm just shy of 13 weeks now, but I'm still waiting for the energy rebound!

Way to go supermom!
