I umm spent yesterday sleeping.. I needed it so I don't feel bad about it. Its good I did too, my upstairs neighbors were having some sort of party ALL NIGHT LONG and the pounding on the ceiling kept me up. Luckily I took my hubbys advice and slept yesterday or Id be miserable this morning..

 

Im going to do some sewing and pack the bags I need to pack today. DH is concentrating on doing the rest of the cleaning that needs to be done and playing with the rug rats. The girls are going to try to pull every toy out of the playroom and set them up in the living room (ok, this is against the house rules but at almost 4 and 2 they still try!). DDs birthday is Saturday so I have some stuff I need to finish for that and wrap the rest of her presents. Im glad I ordered her a cake instead of trying to make one, Im really to tired to try to make a cake since cake decorating isn't one of my favorite things to do.

 

To dos for today:

pack bags

put bags in car along with nursing pillow

put pump in car (just in case I need it)

make doll dresses/bloomers and put on the dolls

put dolls in car with bags (Im giving them to the girls at the hospital so they have their own "babies" to hold)

Finish making DD's birthday present (hair tie organizer) and wrap it

make DD's birthday outfit and wrap it

Find the cord I got for the birth necklace and if I find it make the necklace. If not Ill have to go pick up some more so I can make the necklace. The beads are so nice I really want to get it done BEFORE I go into labor instead of after.

 

Thats it for me.. DH has his own list of things he wants to get done. Im not sure whats on it but thats his stuff to do. As long as it gets done I don't care what order it gets done in.

I'm dragging.. didn't get anything done yesterday either. I did get a good amount of sleep last night and I have the motivation today to get things done since DD1's birthday is Saturday and I want to make it special for her.

Reds Im working on, Blues aren't happening today.

Today I plan on:

-prenatal appointment at 1530

- DH has the smooth move workshop this morning so we should have a good idea whats going on with the move by this afternoon

- pack labor bag

- pack postpartum bag

- pack coming home bag

- pack girls bags

- finish big sister gifts

- put all bags/gifts into car along with nursing pillow and tripod for the camera.

- pick up packages

- make birth necklace (re buy supplies if I can't find them)

- quick clean apartment

- freeze meatloaf

- if we get the car seat pull all the car seats out of the car and clean them all. My girls car seats are kind of gross.

- work on the last minute birthday gifts for DD1

- rewrite birth plan, the girls got ahold of it and colored all over it with black marker.. of course before I got it typed up!

-catch up on laundry last load in dryer

- wash the clothing for the clothing swap

- separate the clothing by size for the swap

Im going to start by taking a shower then Im going to work on quick cleaning the apartment so I make sure its done. By the time I get the back part done it should be time to rotate the laundry. Ill see what I can get done from there. DH is going to be home around 1230-1 so Id like to at least have the cleaning stuff done by then.

Done with the back of the apartment, now off to check on the laundry, hopefully throw the last load in the washer and then clean the living room and rest of the kitchen. After thats done Im putting together the meatloaf to freeze, making one for dinner and then Ill go from there. Hopefully I can get all that done before DH comes home from his classes.

the bags are as packed as they can get right now. There are still a few things I need to get/finish making before they are totally packed but I can add those things with the bags in the car.. Next up big sister gifts.

Thanks Bejeweled...I really need to lose a few kilos so I am hoping it will help me. orngbiggrin.gif

 

Today it feels too hot to do much housework...this hot weather is really not good for the state of my house!  Going to be boiling hot tomorrow so will have an excuse to put the aircon on (too expensive to run unless it is very hot) which means I will feel up to cleaning then.

 

Going to try to do a few things:

 

clean bathroom mirrors

rinse out bathtub

change towels

collect up rubbish

put rubbish out
