I've TOTALLY felt this way this week. We just had our big annual reception for the scholarship program I work for last night, which has taken up a ton of my time, and DH is presenting a huge case that he's been working on overtime all week to a grand jury today (right now, actually!), and I have to work my last shift at the mental health crisis center tomorrow. Therefore, not only have I not got any preparation-for-baby stuff done this week, but our house is more of a mess than usual, with neither of us having time to do basic daily chores (I just washed the first load of what will probably be 3 loads of dishes - normally DH's job, but being as he's gotten about 8 hours total sleep in the last 72 hours, I want him to go to bed as soon as he gets home today). I also need to sweep & mop, pick up nearly every room in the house, clean the bathroom, do a bazillion loads of laundry, etc. Whew!
Next week, however, begins my time of almost no outside commitments - I'll still have some work from home stuff to do for one of my jobs, but I can mostly just concentrate on getting everything together after this week. I need to sterilize some stuff (towels, sheets, mama cloth) for my birth kit, I really want to cook and freeze more food, and I still need to sew bolsters for our bed (it's a mattress on the floor against the wall, and I want to have bolsters between the mattress and the wall, just to be on the safe side, as we're planning on bed-sharing). I also just want to do some deeper cleaning, like washing all of our wall tapestries. Also, while this isn't a priority, I really really want to tie dye some baby t-shirts & onesies, as well as a few things for DH & I. So, we have been regularly instructing the baby that she/he needs to wait at least one more week, preferably 2 or 3. I'm due May 20th, so hopefully she/he will be cool with that.
