I was thinking since most of us have already cleaned our houses and kept up w/our laundry... and are STILL waiting, we could come up with something to do. I have a good one, i bet most of you haven't done, in a while!

Get baby wipes and go around yoru house and clean the floor molding/baseboards. I'm going to do this today... I would think the bending would be a good thing! I squat and wipe from behind, i think you can cover more ground that way, and it is easier than getting on your knees!

Can't wait to hear some more suggestions!

I meticulously cleaned my house last week. I'll do it again tomorrow.

Otheriwse
1. Give myself a great manicure and pedicure. I don't use nail polish, but I really want sculpted nails since mine are all jagged.
2. Getting my hair cut tomorrow. It is long, but I think I better get it trimmed before baby.
3. Type up a call list of people to contact after the birth so I don't forget anyone.
4. Clean the garage
5. Twiddle my thumbs some more.

Honestly, this is all I can come up with. I'm bored out of my mind.

S & J . DD 2/8/7. DS 4/25/10. Natural foods eating, sleep deprived, gardening WAH mama.

I am finishing every sewing project I can think of and then I'm going to dye some stuff. UNfortunately, we have a housekeeper (I'm living with my dad while we relocate) so she gets the cleaning done every Friday and I've washed every stitch of clothing for all 4 adults, DS and all of DS's diapers as well as lanolizing all of his wool (well, washed it, waiting on it to dry to finish lanolizing with teh spray lanolin). Crafts are all thats left LOL

I've been [tub] dying prefolds for a week. I am going to start tie-dying some this weekend, and maybe do some of my own shirts. Maybe anything white that isn't nailed down... lol.

I did my baseboards three or four days ago... that's how desperate I was for something to do. My house is SO organized, too.

I scrubbed my refridgerator and freezer within an inch of its life, and organized my cabinets and pantry. That killed at least half a day!

If he isn't here by Monday, I think I will go and buy some knitting needles and try and do something with the wool I have from a co-op.
