Small Successes--Friday edition
I haven't had much time to post this week; Una spent Monday having coughing fits and I finally got her in to see an asthma/allergy specialist. They have to do testing next Monday, but the short-term diagnosis is that the cough is an allergy-related asthma. She is on a 6 day course of medicine to get the inflammation under control before they test to see what is causing it.
The other thing is that my one really awful pregnancy symptom--varicose veins in the left leg from knee-to-buttock--is really acting up right now. Compression hose is just more of a pain, so I use it if I go out, but avoid it around the house. This always gets better after birth, but it is hitting me earlier and earlier with each pregnancy as I get older.
Without further ado, here are my small--and I mean small--successes for the week:
1) I made butter, yogurt and zucchini bread, plus zucchini patties with the leftover grated zucchini. The cow is back up to a couple of gallons a day with the spring grass coming in.
2) I have the back, one side of the front and about a third of the of the other side of the front of a pink baby sweater completed.
3) I'm about halfway through with both a curriculum shopping list for the upcoming Homeschool Conference and a menu plan for the next two weeks.
I'm trying hard not to feel rotten about the myriad tasks I've not done: not finished the kitchen cleaning, not started the Great Clothing Exchange of spring clothes for winter stuff still in the drawers, not started any seeds for the garden, not done a great job with school this week, although we kept up with the core stuff...Oh, well...
