The To Do List

It is really difficult to get back into the swing of things when you've basically taken a 2 month vacation from working hard.   Now that I am feeling better (YAY!) I have a long To-Do list, and am trying to pick up the pieces of my motivation I left scattered around here somewhere...

I felt pretty accomplished the last few days because I managed to make a ton of phone calls with Little Man's doctors and set up some appointments and therapies for the coming months.  But if you think about it... I didn't have to do much.  I sat on the couch in my pajamas and talked for a few hours.  Big deal.  Although it felt like I'd scaled a mountain at the time.  The real work is yet to come.

The first real step towards Baby Vegas' arrival is our basement storage room.  When I moved in with Hubs, we ended up bringing in a ton of my junk and dropping it off downstairs in the storage room without really sorting or organizing it at all.  Fast forward two years and now there is a layer of New Junk blocking Old Junk and its just a hot mess.  Unfortunately somewhere in there are my maternity clothes, newborn clothes, breast pump, and everything else pregnancy related.  So sometime in the next few weeks we need to find out what I have in order to decide what we need.

Then there is my office, which is overrun by papers and old books and anything that I didn't want boxed and put into storage.  It is a disaster area.  Which we are converting to a guest room.  That all needs to be cleaned, boxed, sorted, and dealt with.  This could be a several weekends long project.  I am shaking just thinking about it.

Finally there is Baby Vegas' nursery, our former guest room.  All the furniture in there needs to be brought downstairs to the office, and then we are painting and cleaning and setting up the nursery.

Wish us luck.  Or just come clean our house, if you're into that sort of torture.

  1. My to do list always seemed endless when I was pregnant and worse I didn't know what half of it meant ;-)
