Gosh I can't believe all you ladies going crazy on your floors. I just can't get inspired to clean our apartment. I did get inspired to move the dining room table and zabutons to the living room and turn the EIK area into a play space for the kids (well I had the idea, at least, probably do it this afternoon when A. takes her nap) I was going over some of my old fengshui notes and realized that we should so totally NOT have our dining table in the Northeast. God, how could I have missed that?
I still have SO much to do and no money to do it with. I have been inspired to do laundry, though. I need about $20 more in quarters just to get everything clean, though. I want to wash everything in the house: all the quilts, back log of sheets, zabuton covers, couch covers, etc. I want more fabric so that I can sew more summer kids clothes and wool for other little projects to keep my hands busy. Money is coming, though. Misha is working like a dog trying to keep us going and I am grateful for that. Other wise I have been totaly bored. Yesterday I had a total break down because I have been having trouble sleeping. When I don't sleep I feel just like a zombie all day long and yet I still have to do all the mom stuff. It's so horrible. Last night I was kind of freaking out bc/ I couldn't sleep but luckily I was able to sleep in today and I feel ok right now.
Misha is going to Miami on Wed. for a "Think Tank" conference (he's going to start working part-time for a local Institute doing the fund raising soon) so I am a little nervous about that. I had asked some of our friends to stay over with me while he will be away but they are going to be out of town, too. So some other friends in NJ are on call. Luckily they are only about 35-40 mins away. But god, I so totally do not want to have this baby without my loving husband there to at least get the first look at the baby and take the first video/photos... So just stay where you are baby!
Nym- those diapers and tshirts are beautiful! I've used Rit in the past on various article of clothing and it seems to wash out eventually (and turn the rest of the laundry different shades of purple/blue/red/etc. depending on the detergent that I was using) Will have to look into the dye that you're using (you mentioned it but can't remember the name at the moment)
I also got a card in the mail yesterday inviting me to a lunch/tea in honor of me
May 7th! cutting it kind of close! I am just happy that my friends are having something for me, though. It makes me feel so loved. The invitation doesn't actually mention the word "shower" but I hope everyone will read between the lines. And it's not like I am registered anywhere but I'm hoping for gift certificates, child care vouchers and meal vouchers.
