thanks though I gotta say looking at your list kept me inspired as well. At least I know I am not the only one with such a long list!

Okay, the living room windowsills are sanded. Ow. My shoulder hurts. Having a short chocolate chip cookie break, then I've gotta start wielding the masking tape and sugar soap. Fun.

Well, the painting didn't get done yesterday, so this afternoon it is. Luckily MIL is here to help. We went out with the kids to a park and picked up our meat CSA earlier, and I went by the japanese book store and aquired a new crafting book, for Easter. Tons of cute little animals and creatures I want to crochet. So now I have to go to the craft store to get thread and a tiny crochet hook Gotta have a hospital project! Crocheting tiny people eggs are SOOOOOOOOO important.

WHY o WHY do I allow myself to be a victim of cute japanese crafting?

OMG! I am so not with it compared to you mamas! Let's see, so far I have:
Washed all the newborn pre-folds and covers. Still need to get more CD's for the LO.

Bought a new car seat for LO

Did the "registry thing" for family who's been badgering me about a baby shower. Funny how no one in the family is purchasing the CDs from my Babyworks registry. Dh's grandma bought me a TON of disposables, after I sent out a mass e-mail that we do not use them, and directed them to the online registry for CDs:.

Bought a few newborn onesies and footed jammies at Goodwill.

Finished the blanket I've been working on since November! Inspired by an artisan's blanket I admired at a festival last Fall, I've been purchasing cashmere and silk clothing items at resale/thrift stores and cutting out blocks from them to make LO a blanket. ONe side is all cashmere bordered w/ silk, and the other side silk bordered w/ cashmere.This is my first "real" sewing project, so it's FAR from perfect, or even pretty. Dh says he'd be real "stoked" to have such a lovey for himself, though.

As for food, I went to BJ's the other day and bought small fortune's worth of pasta, frozen veggies, salmon steaks, shrimp, couscous, rice pilaf, chix broth etc so DH can easily whip up dinner without my help.

We finally did the test run for the birth pool yesterday. All went well.

We still need to get those things to do footprints. And we are planning our 2nd UC, but packing a bag in case of transfer sounds like a good idea. Hmmm, what else am I leaving out?

1.Figure out how to install the car seat and do it already!
2.Make a list of all things to grab for hospital (bags are packed but need to remember boppy, etc)
3.Call the VA about a stupid dr bill from 2 years ago that needs to be taken care of, since I doubt I'll have the time/patience later
4.Make sure all finances are in place/autopay set up on bills due around mid-month
