Getting up, dusting myself off

I'm finally to the point in my pregnancy (just over 15 weeks) where I am beginning to regain my energy. I am able to do a little more in terms of housework, and don't feel the need to lay down or sit all day long. I had been getting a near-constant ticking in my left eye that had been bothering me, and I'm pretty sure it was due to me being absolutely exhausted.

At the stage we are in our life with our family growing, my husband and I decided it was time to start thinking about and looking at houses. We need to move when our lease is up (1 week +/- before my scheduled c-section!) because we need more room with the baby coming. I don't want to be stuck in this tiny house for one more year! We're living in less than 1,000 sf as it is- I don't think I can do it much longer, let alone with 3 kids. Hoping that we'll be able to get the financing we need to get a home that fits our need that we can afford.

I have also been looking for work at home opportunities, trying to supplement our income. Mostly until now it has been Swagbucks and paid surveys which pay very little. I applied for a freelance writing position, but didn't get it. Applied for a few other legitimate ones, but at this point I don't have that much hope. Hopefully things will pick up again soon!

On a happier note- the twins are getting so big- I am constantly amazed at the things they learn from us, how much their language and dexterity has grown. Yesterday, I asked one of my sons, "Do you want some water?" and usually, he'll shake his head "no" or reach out to me. Instead, he said loud and clearly, "Juice!". I stood there in shock. He doesn't know that many words, and he isn't the more verbal twin. I am so proud of him- but he is growing up way too fast
