Im still working on things from yesterday. Im so tired sleeping.gif all I really want to do is sleep. DD1's birthday is Saturday though and Im due in 2 weeks so I need to get some stuff done. Now for the motivation to do it. Im going to go shower and get a shopping list together so I can send DDs and DH out food shopping. While they are gone Ill try to work on the playroom because its easier for me to get it clean when I don't have the girls under foot.

I'm sorry, *bejeweled*. I hope you feel better!


Wow, Okimom! You're getting very close to your due date!


I didn't get around to picking up the bedroom or doing laundry yesterday, so I have those things to do today. We'll see how I do.  So far I've journaled and that's it. :-)

Jumping in here as I have really gotten off track with my cleaning routines and my house is a disaster. redface.gif I could use some accountability! My list for today is:


-Get all of the laundry washed AND put away

-Clean bathroom (I have little boys who need to work on their aim)

-Dishes washed

-Clean kitchen

-Clean all floors - vacuum or sweep and mop

-Tidy up living room and our bedroom

-Clear stair landing

Oh, and I should probably get us all out of our pjs at some point, too. blush.gif

I've got an ookey tummy too, and the babe seems a little under the weather as well.  We have not moved from the couch today.  At least I got all caught up on laundry & dishes last night.

Bejeweled and rajahkat I hope you are both feeling much better!


Okimom don't overdo it...if you need sleep then make sure you sleep.

post #1233 of 1254

I umm spent yesterday sleeping.. I needed it so I don't feel bad about it. Its good I did too, my upstairs neighbors were having some sort of party ALL NIGHT LONG and the pounding on the ceiling kept me up. Luckily I took my hubbys advice and slept yesterday or Id be miserable this morning..


Im going to do some sewing and pack the bags I need to pack today. DH is concentrating on doing the rest of the cleaning that needs to be done and playing with the rug rats. The girls are going to try to pull every toy out of the playroom and set them up in the living room (ok, this is against the house rules but at almost 4 and 2 they still try!). DDs birthday is Saturday so I have some stuff I need to finish for that and wrap the rest of her presents. Im glad I ordered her a cake instead of trying to make one, Im really to tired to try to make a cake since cake decorating isn't one of my favorite things to do.


To dos for today:

pack bags

put bags in car along with nursing pillow

put pump in car (just in case I need it)

make doll dresses/bloomers and put on the dolls

put dolls in car with bags (Im giving them to the girls at the hospital so they have their own "babies" to hold)

Finish making DD's birthday present (hair tie organizer) and wrap it

make DD's birthday outfit and wrap it

Find the cord I got for the birth necklace and if I find it make the necklace. If not Ill have to go pick up some more so I can make the necklace. The beads are so nice I really want to get it done BEFORE I go into labor instead of after.


Thats it for me.. DH has his own list of things he wants to get done. Im not sure whats on it but thats his stuff to do. As long as it gets done I don't care what order it gets done in.

post #1237 of 1254

I'm dragging.. didn't get anything done yesterday either. I did get a good amount of sleep last night and I have the motivation today to get things done since DD1's birthday is Saturday and I want to make it special for her.

Reds Im working on, Blues aren't happening today.

Today I plan on:

-prenatal appointment at 1530

- DH has the smooth move workshop this morning so we should have a good idea whats going on with the move by this afternoon

- pack labor bag

- pack postpartum bag

- pack coming home bag

- pack girls bags

- finish big sister gifts

- put all bags/gifts into car along with nursing pillow and tripod for the camera.

- pick up packages

- make birth necklace (re buy supplies if I can't find them)

- quick clean apartment

- freeze meatloaf

- if we get the car seat pull all the car seats out of the car and clean them all. My girls car seats are kind of gross.

- work on the last minute birthday gifts for DD1

- rewrite birth plan, the girls got ahold of it and colored all over it with black marker.. of course before I got it typed up!

-catch up on laundry last load in dryer

Im going to start by taking a shower then Im going to work on quick cleaning the apartment so I make sure its done. By the time I get the back part done it should be time to rotate the laundry. Ill see what I can get done from there. DH is going to be home around 1230-1 so Id like to at least have the cleaning stuff done by then.
