I hope to:

*go to an appointment
*take DD to horse riding
*go grocery shopping


I wish!  This baby is taking his time.  The more I move around and keep busy, the less I focus on the coming delivery.  I am hoping all this cleaning is a an indicator that labor is coming soon.  love.gif

Thanks for the encouragement, SaraCate, *bejeweled* & clutterwarrior

 

*bejeweled*, I hope you feel better soon. ... Doesn't it feel good to be done with Christmas shopping?

 

Ruthiegirl, you can do it. As people tell me, it's all about baby steps. Remember that what you don't get done today can just be gotten to tomorrow. 

 

So far today, I:

 

Slept in and feel rested

Made coffee and oatmeal

Filled 2 garbage bags of toys to freecycle

Organized toys (louder toys in the living room, quieter toys in the bedroom)

Dried the diapers

 

I need to:

 

Think about what to make for supper

Make lunch

Make deviled eggs

Put away and wash dishes

Wash, dry, fold & put away 1 load of laundry

Put away the clothes currently on the couch

Make bed

Pick up Kitchen

Pick up Living Room

Pick up Bedroom

Give vitamins

Fold and put away the diapers

Strip the diapers I forgot to strip last time when I do the next diaper wash

List items on decluttering thread (I'm close to making my goal!)

List items on freecycle

Wrap some gifts

Go through size 18 month clothes and select some to give to a local mama in need (I can't believe that my 3 1/2 month old is wearing 12 months and even some 18 month clothes, thanks to his being over 20 pounds and cloth diaper bubble bum! Crazy, crazy, crazy!)

Good luck, Ruthiegirl! My son came a little after 42 weeks and that was so hard. Just think that pretty soon you'll be snuggling your little one. :-)

Soo, the baby is still sick but on the mend.. my van's brakes were rusted out from the salt they use on the roads up north and cost a lot less to fix than I was planning.. Ive decided homemade Christmas gifts are overrated and instead Im giving everyone framed family pictures (well except my husband's cousin who will be getting something to get him outside and playing..).. My cat ate my dryer exhaust hose thing so tomorrow I get to replace it.. Yea, Can December end already? I swear if one more thing goes wrong Im going to sit down where ever I am and cry. Wait, already done that. But on the bright side, at least the baby wasn't sick on Christmas day, we had enough in savings to fill in some present gaps (and we will have one happy little girl when she sees the fold up barn Daddy sent her) and the van didn't break the bank. Tomorrow I need to clean up the house. It looks like a tornado went through it, actually two tornadoes did go through it.. human tornadoes!

 

To Dos:

clean up playroom

clean up living room

put down carpet freshener before we go to the store- didn't have freshener so Im putting it down tonight and vacuuming tomorrow

vacuum freshener up when we get home- doing tomorrow

find the library books

return books

cut out Christmas dresses

make cookies

frame pictures

bring cans back from street

laundry, laundry, laundry

check mail

drop off move notice to housing

pick up pictures

food shopping

work on sweater

take care of pets

((Hugs)), Okimom. I hope things get better for you really soon! Congrats on the van not costing so much to fix! And although I love homemade gifts, sometimes there just isn't enough time to make them, especially when you're caring for 3 small children by yourself. ... I do want to learn to be more crafty, though. :-)

 

So far I have:

 

Showered and dressed first thing!

Made coffee and cream of wheat for breakfast

Gave DS his vitamins

Gave DS apple slices w/ peanut butter for snack

Put away the dishes DH so lovingly washed this morning

Washed a load of laundry

Cleaned all the chairs outside too and managed to find and kill a couple of redback spiders under them! yikes.gif

Psst... Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!

 

We weren't so productive today, but we aren't having company or going anywhere Christmas day, so it's no big deal. We'll continue to work on various tasks, but we plan to spend most of Christmas day relaxing.

finish the crayon rolls not done yet

finish sewing the straps and closure to the messenger bag

finish sewing the roads on the carmat then sew the front to the back of the mat

do the buttonholes and buttons on the two infant outfits

 

 

I really need to stop doing multiple projects at once, I end up with a whole lot of projects that are ALMOST done but not quite then I get side tracked with something else. Im going to work on the sewing projects first and I hope to get them done by lunch then work on the sweater after lunch.

My laptop is still broken after I dropped it, so I'm on my phone...
Glad your little girl is ok, bejeweled!

I have an errand day today, even though my house is a complete disaster! I am not leaving my house Fri, Sat or Sun to get everything done.
Plan to:
...pick up a birth tub
...get a bin from a friends house
...milk from farm
...mason jars from orchard

Hope everyone has a great day!

Monkey- that sucks about your laptop, hopefully its fixed soon..

 

I ended up not getting anything really done yesterday.. I had a migraine lingering all day then it got horrible at night.. Ended up taking some benedryl (a lot of times for me migraines are triggered by allergies) and slept.. Woke up with it still there so my to do list today will be light.. I'm hoping it goes away so we can have some fun tomorrow. Usually we play games all day and stay up late eating junk food (bad I know but the kids enjoy it!) but if I feel like I do now its not happening.

 

To Dos:

go to the store for some migraine meds and sparkling cider for tomorrow, also pick up photo collage for DH

find my seam ripper so I can fix the girls dresses for Sunday

sew on buttons on the girl's dresses

pick up around the house

clean the dogs crate

drop off rent check

check mail

Work of sweater if I can manage it

order photo mug for DH

order yarn for DSs birthday sweater

order fabric for DD's birthday outfit, DS's birthday shirt and picture outfits

 

That is the sum of what I'm going to try to get done.. Hopefully I get some of it done at least!
