Ode to a Small House

The five best things about having a small house . . .
1. You can clean the whole house in an hour and a half if you're really feeling energetic.
2. You know where everyone is all the time and what they are doing, which comes in handy with a 2 year old.
3. You would know if someone were breaking in very quickly.
4. It is easy to heat and stay warm and toasty.
5. You can say "we don't have room for that" when people offer you things you don't want.

This is me being thankful for the house God has given us for now. :)

Kinley has been running a temp and has had a cough, runny nose, seems achy, etc. for the last three days and nights. I have kept him dosed on Ibprofin and Tylenol and whenever that wears off his temp goes back up. So we are homebound for the day as well as yesterday, although Chris came home to stay with him while I went to the doctor, and probably tomorrow as well. Tomorrow makes me sad because we had planned on making an Aldis run with Mom and Sally. I guess I'll have to go next week. I just pray the little guy gets over this soon. It's so sad to see him sick.
My doctor's appointment went well. I got to hear the baby's heartbeat which is always cool to me. :) My due date is June 22nd, which is David's birthday so that could be fun. :) I was glad to hear I had only gained 3 pounds because it felt like I had gained 10 around my middle. I did feel the baby for the first time two nights ago laying in bed. So exciting! I get to have my sonogram in three or four weeks so that will be fun too. Hope you all have a great weekend! Ours may be spent hibernating. :)
