Sharita - you are very close. Perhaps this will be your week. I can so relate to how you're feeling, except I'm not quite 36 weeks yet. Ugh - I have a long ways to go!
weliveintheforest - You know, that name thing would irk me too, so I completely get it. We've had a terrible time with names. We've had two picked out forever, but I'm not excited about them. I don't know if it's because they're not the right names or if it's just because we've had it decided for so long or because we don't know gender so I haven't been able to connect to either name yet.
Smokering - Wow. Your poor family. Things HAVE to calm down after all of that! ((HUGS))
Sarah - You sound very close!
AFM - I'm ready for today to be over. If I can get through today then it's the weekend and that's fantastic. Hubby has his final for his CNA course today. So then he'll be done done done with this insanely paced lengthy hours class and he won't have his nose buried in books when he's home and I'll get help around the house again. YAYAYAYA!!!! I still need to do my dishes so that I can cook lunch for my daycare kiddos today. I'm kind of lagging behind, but I'll get there. We NEED to do our test run on the birth pool this weekend. We haven't done it yet. Heaven forbid there's something wrong with it as I'll be 36 weeks as of Sunday. We can ship it back and get a replacement, but we'd be cutting it awfully close. So I'm praying to God that there's nothing wrong with it. We still need to run and get our house and faucet adapter and a water pump (that's the only way I can think of to empty it). For those of you that have had water births, did you do a test run complete with adding the water or did you just blow it up, check for leaks, and call it done? I'm thinking it's a good idea to do a test run complete with water and everything, but it's just more work. On top of that, we have other projects that are waiting. We have to finish my son's superhero bedroom. Hubby is almost done painting his bed and is going to touch up the bedroom a bit. Then it's just a matter of vacuuming and putting everything in the room. We have this cute table and chairs set that needs to get put together. Also, my daycare furniture that I got with my daycare grant $$ has come and it's just sitting in boxes. We need to get those opened, inventoried, and I need to get my paperwork together (receipts, shipping invoices, forms, etc...) to mail in so that I can get my reimbursement money. So since that's all here I will likely be working on some arranging in my daycare room this weekend. Also, my garden is in bad need of weeding. Luckily it looks as though the temp has dropped a bit this weekend. I'm hoping to get out and garden while it's cooler. The nice thing is that it's a lot of hands and knees, which is great for this stage of pregnancy! At some point I have mounds and mounds of clean laundry upstairs in my bedroom that needs to be put away so that we can rearrange furniture and make room for the cosleeper by our bed and get that hooked up. I'd like to finish out my home birth basket sometime soon also - the nice thing is that I'm not going to stress over it until I'm 37 weeks, because I can't have a home birth if I'm not full-term anyways, so I have another week!
Oh...and I got some great fluff mail the other day. My diapers that I ordered from Green Mountain Diapers came. I got the yellow workhorse fitted and can't wait to try them. I got a few covers and a few Disana wool covers for nighttime. I also got some postpartum mama cloth from Punkyspads. They look cute - is it ridiculous how I want something cute to bleed on? Good grief! So anyways, my newborn stash is DONE!!! I just need to prep diapers and organize all of this crap somewhere in my house.
