Nesting and To Do's

Well as the ticker on the left so clearly informs me, only three more days till Gideon arrives! We're so excited about the big day. And with all the excitement comes the stress of finishing things up around the house so that when he arrives it's smooth sailing. Here is a list of things I have yet to do that I want to get done:

  • oil change, air filter change, and battery replacement in the Lumina
  • finish putting all Gideon's clothes away
  • put the cradle in our room and the changing table in his
  • wash the car seat cover and bouncy seat cover in baby detergent
  • clean out basement refrigerator
  • fix leaks in the basement sink and pipe
  • deep clean living room carpet
  • change furnace filter
  • finish thank you notes from the baby shower
  • put porch furniture where it belongs...on the porch rather than back yard
  • (not really thinking Gideon will care about above task)
  • re-install both car seats in lumina
  • pay Jason's MRI bill
  • reorganize our medical/bill file folder to prepare for the plethora of new bills coming
  • clean fans in all rooms
  • grocery shopping
  • regular daily chores/housekeeping
  • pack a hospital bag for myself, Jason, and Gideon
  • pack a stay-at-Grammy and Pops' house bag for Reagan

Since this list is on my mind all the time, I thought I'd blog about it...seems like I'll keep myself more accountable now that it's out there for all to read. More in the days to come!

You go girl! We'll be praying you get it all done! But, I'd feel better if you pack your hospital bag first, just in case all your crazy cleaing sends you into labor! Can't wait to talk to Gideon on Wednesday! We love you
