I guess you could say I am entering a nesting/panic phase. We have a small 2 bedroom house, and even though I know people live just fine in much smaller areas, I somehow can't seem to make everything fit! I've gotten all the cloth diapers for the new baby, and am trying to find a place to put them all. This involves taking the door off the closet, putting up a curtain, cleaning out the whole closet, maybe installing some shelving, etc. etc. We also had to buy a new dresser to accomodate clothing for 2 kids instead of 1, but haven't picked it up yet because we have no one to help dh carry it up the stairs, and I don't want to pay $70 to have it delivered.
Ds's 3rd birthday is May 15, and my evil twin decided to throw a birthday party. Now I have to get this house in shape, and only have 1.5 weeks to do it! Plus this weekend is my sister's birthday and mother's day. Looks like I'll be spending mother's day cleaning out closets! I figured it's better now than when I'm 9 months pregnant, so what am I waiting for. But I HATE throwing parties! I am a horribly nervous hostess, and I stress about everything. And in a moment of weakness dh convinced me to go ahead and invite all OUR friends (none of whom have kids), as it might be the last time we see everyone for awhile. I figure what the hell, how bad could it be? All our family and friends, in one small space, and me responsible for feeding and entertaining everyone? How do you hostesses do it?
Oh yeah, the baby. Everything seems to be going along just fine. My midwife is pretty sure the head is down already. I'm trying to find a refresher weekend birth class, but no luck yet. I'm also trying to figure out where the heck I'm going to put the birthing tub. I think I'll start a separate thread about that.
Can you tell I'm starting to get a little frantic? Would it be horrible of me to cancel mother's day plans with my inlaws and try to schedule a massage instead? I think I need to go do some deep breathing.
