In a Nutshell: Lists and Kleenex
I have such good intentions of showing my face around this blog more...however getting my to-do list taken care of is sucking up my time. SO this week has been ruled by my lists. Hahaha the TO-DO LIST. Man do I love a good list.
I almost always have one running, but now you add to it nesting, getting a still new house ready, and a couple of big events coming up in our lives and well that list is pages long. It always makes me feel better to write all of the things down. For one then I won't forget, but most importantly then I can CROSS off the items as I go and I feel at least a little accomplished.
Then of course when something comes up "to-do" that is not on the list, well you better believe I just add that puppy right to the bottom of the list and then promptly cross it off!
Yes, I like lists.
However, these lists are a little overwhelming and in all honesty not every item is going to get done and I know that. This week was spent crossing off a lot of "to-do's".
One of the big things was changing out clothes and organizing closets. I washed Bean's clothes. I transferred Littlest's (yes I am realizing my nicknames are going to have to change quickly...still trying to figure out what Littlest's new one is going to be) clothes to the new closet he will share with Middle.
Once his stuff was all organized in the new room, I tackled Bean's room. How is is possible to forget how teeny tiny newborn clothes are?!? I also might have giggled excitedly when I held up a newborn diaper. Sigh. They are so adorably tiny.
We also got the guest bedroom completely done. We only have to hang up posters in Oldest's room and then that room will be done too. I am to hoping to share those with you soon. Baby's room is next...but I am quite a ways behind and well there are always road blocks.
Like having to permanently attach a box of Kleenex to yourself. For either the purpose of blowing your own nose or wiping the snot-covered face of any of your three children.
Hopefully all of our illnesses will disappear soon.
Hopefully the majority of my list items will disappear soon (and I am not referring to someone coming over and stealing my lists...so don't even think about it).
Hopefully this will all occur before Bean's arrival...which people, is no more than about 3 1/2 weeks. Booyah!
Have a great Sunday!!
