Thanks Graceie for the thought, I just need to get moving on things. Luckily DH is home so all I have to do is sit, play with the kids and tell him what needs to get done. If he wasn't home right now Id be in trouble. He has today off (for the most part, has to go in for like 2 hours) and tomorrow so hes going to knock off a bunch of stuff. He just can't really do some of the baby stuff or the organizing because I'm horribly picky about what I want done. Hes goal is to get the main places the baby and I will be done this weekend so that if the baby comes at least the main places he will be (and I will be) will be clean and less stressful for me. Yesterday he did most of the bedroom, today hes going to finish the bedroom and work on the bathrooms.


To dos:

- wash baby carriers

- wash baby clothing- in washing machine

- catch up on other laundry- 2-3 more loads other than baby stuff that needs to get done

- quick clean apartment

- doll dresses and bloomers

- wrap dolls and put aside

- finish activity kits and put up

- make birth necklace (need to find where the kids took off with the rope to make it with)

- make nail appointment

- make hair appointment

- order x-stitch kits

-freeze pads for postpartum

- Bathroom: organize cupboards, organize medicine chests, organize under sinks

- Playroom: organize toys, organize books, clean out toy containers, wash rug

- bedroom- organize drawers, organize jewerly, clean out desk area

- type up birth plan


first though I need to find DH's wallet so he can go to work and get the stuff done there he needs to get done.

post #1186 of 1254

Can't find DH's wallet which is totally stressing me out. It had quite a bit of cash in it (that was suppose to go to paying a bill), his ID, credit card, the girls medical cards (which we only need if we go off base for some reason but I like to have anyway) and his libo card (which he needs to get off of base if its past 11pm). So, if I go into labor next couple of nights Im messed unless he can find that wallet. Oh and we have to find a way to pay that bill as well.. Honestly I think Im putting tracking devices on everything cause we lose things way to easily.


Im going to go take out my stress on my poor innocent bathroom and then go onto the poor laundry.. If that doesn't work for a destressor Ill find something else. I was going to organize drawers but my youngest fell asleep in the bedroom and I dont' want her waking up.

Found the wallet.. One of the munchkins hid it and it took me forever to find it.. I need to figure out how to explain to a 2 and 3 year old that no matter what Daddy has to go to work and hiding his wallet just stresses everyone out.

post #1188 of 1254

Okimom I hope you find his wallet soon...(LOL I took so long to press submit that I see you have since found it...that is good news!! )
