Y'know, I've never been able to get a positive test early. I wonder if that's because I drink so much water?

So, no positive tests, but I'm about 90% sure that I *am* pregnant.

Some of those symptoms those of you who know my pregnancies well might recognize:

1)Crazy, hectic dreams, containing hundreds of CATS
2) 24/7 "nausea"-- I put that in quotes because it's always there and can suddenly roar to the surface and end up with dry heaves. Thankfully I have not been vomiting... yet.
3)Food Adversion-- I made this incredible meal last night-- pork butt roast, stuffed with brie, wrapped with apples and bacon, and then rolled in pistachios. I couldn't touch it. I took one smell and started gagging. I ate the sweet potatoes instead :).
4)Tired. I'm low-energy anyway, but now I'm kinda a lay-a-bed. Not really, with these kids, but I would if I could :).
5)THIRSTY-- I'm always a really thirsty person, but I have this new water bottle, it's 1 Liter, and I know I'm drinking about five of those a day. And. I'm. Still. Dying. Of. Thirst.
6)I had to reintroduce gluten to my diet. I had a hunch that my body was missing something when I started having horrendous bi-polar moments of irrational *rage*.
7)What was I talking about again? Who am I? What's this post about?
8)Just that sixth sense of having "something" lingering around me, interestingly enough I feel like there's both a male and female baby-feeling... proof we're not done???? (I know, a little 'wooh-wooh' for Keith, too)

But no positive tests yet. My AF is due thursday or friday, so I should be able to test positive soon... 

I'm just hoping this all doesn't mean I'm crazy.

There was an incident at church (Something I should have done in my calling, and could have been a disaster, but thankfully wasn't) that really rattled me, private email if you really need details, but it sent me for a loop. I've been really struggling with my depression since. I found out last thursday and today is the first day I haven't just been wanting to disappear. It's been horrendous.

Sunny is doing great with his potty-training. 

I seriously need tips on how to get organized. I will NOT get offended. I will share anything you share with me and show you how I try to utilize it. We've been getting containers with lids from Walmart, as a lady at church said that organization requires lids. We have way too much stuff... so here are things we really need help with.

1)Boy's toys-- they have TONS
2)Boy's clothes-- I've been thinking of putting all but ten outfits away at a time? They have two dressers (big) FULL.
3)My crafts/sewing/projects. Lots of fabric, clothes for ripping up, and supplies. How do I get all that organized? There's so much *stuff*

I think those are the worst problems. I can't believe how much stuff the boys have, especially considering we never buy things!!!

I would love to help with the organizing. It's one of my favorite things to do. Sen me an email and we can talk. Or better yet, tell me specific questions and I will repsond on my blog since my blog is pretty much dead right now. :O)

I'm excited that you should have news this week!!

Congrats on the potty training! Harper is showing real interest, and I can't wait to get moving on it. The there will be NO MORE DIAPERS!! Wow, after 23 years. Cooky.

Talk to you soon,

Good luck! I'm crossing my fingers for you!

About organization--I am FAR from really well organized, but I DO have my sewing stuff and fabrics in several tupperware boxes (with lids), in the closet, alongside my sewing machine. The boxes are each probably about 8 inches tall, 8 inches wide, and 12 inches long. Maybe bigger. I'm horrible about estimating distance, especially when I'm just picturing them in my head. Anyway, they're a pretty good size, but I do need several of them. I could do with having slightly biggger boxes.

For kid's clothing, I organize it by size (preemie/newborn, 0-3, 3-6, 6-12, 12-18, 18-24, 2T, 3T, etc) and put the clothes in big tupperware bins or garbage bags and toss them in storage.

Again, good luck!

On getting organized...
One way to declutter is, to declutter! Watch the boys closely and see which toys they really play with consistently and which are "when they see them" toys. Then, when you have a couple of hours, drop them with Leah then you and hubby go home and get rid of all the unused toys. Out of site, out of mind...then store all the beloved toys into those containers you talked about.
