My big thing right now is my house. It's gotten very full and messy this last year. We have a smallish house (just under 1600 sg ft) for 5 people, soon to be 6. I was running a fiber/yarn business out of my kitchen, we used to homeschool, etc. Just majorly feeling the need to declutter.
So this summer that's the main prep I'm doing. Purge, clean, purge, rearrange, etc. So far I've cleaned out the boys bedroom completely and working with them on better habits to keep it clean, cleaned my room (I have one bin of random things that do need to be kept and don't have a place but I'm working on that one), turned a trashed out junk closet in the laundry room into a storage for all my fiber crafts (fitting it all in one closet, sadly, is a big improvement), sold a wheel, drum carder, and have one more item I'm selling. need to ship those.
Halfway done with the kitchen, I still need to get one big shelf out and then I want to rearrange all the cupboards. Cleaning my daughters room with her starting today.
All that is really step one, and will be done *WILL BE DONE* by school starting this fall. I need empty zen space.
The only baby specific thing I have done so far is after I cleaned my room really well I had my hubby bring in the changing table. Its where I'll store most of the clothes and diapers etc. I wanted that in and cleaned and ready to go by this Friday since I know when we fiind out the sex of the baby at the sono stuff is going to start making it's way into the house and I want space for it!
Other than that I don't want to make too many crazy plans. I am going to be busy this Fall teaching yoga (yay!) and living and I don't want to stress about going into the holidays. I have a registry for a few things I need (new carseat, etc), I'll have a shower with friends and family (My mom and sister will do that), my Mom and sister will help with housecleaning through the fall to give me some help, they will bring food after the babe comes (We all eat the same way too). I will probably double ups several meals in November like soups and broth and basic cooked meat to build quick meals out of, but I'm not doing anything separate from what I already cook.
I have almost every necessary item for babyhood already, most of it is at my sisters house and will come back to me (clothes, diapers, slings). I NEED the carseat, lanolin, and snappies.
;-) I know from past experience that babes don't need much and I don't want a load of extra crap in my house. hehe.
OOH Another to do is go away for the night for our anniversary next month. Definite NEED.
