1. Organize toddler’s toys.
Which basically means throw away anything that has no purpose and hide anything else that next kid might play with within the next 6 months. Ah, less clutter. Feel. so. much. better.
2. Shave legs.
Throughout entire pregnancy, I have only shaved my legs on major holidays. Hair growth stalled and I took advantage.
3. Wash, blow dry and iron hair more often.
(ok, so every 3 days. Nothing too drastic, but more tedious than every 4 days in my opinion.) Who knows when will be the next time I get to spend oodles of minutes making my hair look nice.
4. Remove and replace items in hospital bag.
In being well too prepared in the hospital bag department, I tend to need EVERYTHING that is inside this bag.
5. Do laundry everytime the basket gets halfway full.
Seem to have an issue with letting the laundry get away from me. DUDE, I am doing laundry waaaay too much. It’s a terrible problem, but I CAN’T STOP. I think I even find things to wash that are just misplaced.
6. Hide things that might seem inappropriate to grandparents.
While we are in the hospital, Rt will be taken care of by other people, who will live in our house. Must hide items that might be too shocking to discover while looking for that extra tube of toothpaste.
7. Charge and recharge anything that resembles a camera.
Both kinds were ready to go awhile back, but since then, we’ve celebrated a birthday TWICE. All photos have been uploaded after each occasion to leave enough room to take 8759 photos of new baby. Extra video tape has also been added to camera bag just in case we burn through the rest of the 90 minute tape.
8. Decide it’s not worth to “focus” on nether regions anymore.
Hey, if I can’t see it anymore, it doesn’t exist anymore.
9. Stop off at the local fire department on way home to see if anyone is around to check car seat installation.
Seems you have to make an appointment for this request and actually go to the main fire house all the way in downtown to get the service you need. Crap.
10. Shop and stock up. Then stock up again cause you ate everything you’ve already purchased.
This one has been the most annoying. How much money and time do I have to spend on food for once the baby gets here? Everything I bought is either halfway gone or has already disappeared. At least we got a fridge for the garage, (finally! Thanks Craigslist!) so when we do have an overflow of supply, if ever, it has a place to live, for a brief moment.
39th week appt. tomorrow. See if I have made any headway since last week’s 1/2 cm.
(UPDATE: Stop the presses everyone, I AM NOW ONE CM DILATED…..Hey, at least it’s progress, right?)
Do we have any guesses when this babe will get here? Want to play along? Due date is Saturday, the 12th.
