Lyla and I are now in week 22 of pregnancy, meaning that I am starting to count down to week 40! It’s amazing to me that between now and March we’ll have celebrated Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and Easter. Did I miss any other major holidays? Hopefully all the craziness will help the time to pass quickly, although the logical part of me says, “You have a ton to do before this baby arrives! Use your time wisely!” I’m trying.
The nesting has begun. I cleaned the car inside and out on a whim, and had fun doing it. Scary. I also began sorting and filing bills this morning. The hard part is that my urge to purge and clean battles with my personality. I tend to get really overwhelmed with big projects, and I am a hopeless clutterbug. Poor Jason, it drives him batty. So I am attempting to do a little at a time so I can eventually have this place a little more cleared out before baby girl arrives.
Wish me luck, oh and pass on any fabulous (and easy) organizational tips please; I need all the help I can get!
On another note, we’re just about done Christmas shoping for Jonah. As you saw in my last post, his “Ho Ho” list was pretty short and sweet. I found most of what he wanted at Toys R Us today while he’s at my MIL’s house. While I got some good deals, I have to say that I am not overly impressed with Toys R Us. Maybe it’s that I come within earshot of screaming children every time I’m there, including today. That’s just the thing, Toys R Us isn’t a real happy place for kids. It’s not like in the little eclectic, individual owned stores where kids can actually play with stuff; everything at TRU is boxed up and overpriced. I was only there for 30 minutes and was exhausted. Oh, and apparently no one works there either. The whole time I was there searching for a magnifying glass I didn’t see one employee except when I got to check out. Maybe they were hiding from the screaming children.
