LOL I am seriously cracking up over here. Would you have it projected on the wall while you labor so anyone who comes in can watch the slide show and get all the important basics? lol

Re: Accountability - To Do List Thread:

Okay, I'm ready to be held accountable!

To buy:
* Arm's Reach Mini Co-Sleeper

* Dresser
* Convertible car seat for DS (DS still fits in his infant car seat, which will be passed down to the new baby) Wooooo!!
* Girly cover for the infant car seat Just bought a new infant seat with an amazing deal instead!
* Praying on buying a new king size bed (for me...and the co-sleeping babies)
* Used rocking chair for master bedroom (c'mon CL and yard sales!)
* Bedding set for baby girl

To build/put together:

To do:

* Find a date for my Blessingway (may have to be a couple weeks before I'm due)
* Find someone to watch DS while I give birth if my mom doesn't get to town in time Done! Thank the Lord!
* Clean the house...and keep it clean (yea right...)
* Stockpile enough food to let me rest easy after birth and not have to go out couponing
* Make freezer meals (hoping to fill up my deep freezer!) in progress!
* Find and put up sound proof/heavy duty curtains in the master bedroom (so much noise comes in...don't want it waking the baby)
* Pay off credit cards! 1 down, 4 to go!
* Make jelly and canned juice out of FILs concord grapes (they should be ripe right when baby is due...)
* Wash and put away baby girls clothes
* Prep NB diapers
* Prep mama cloth
* Sew more cloth wipes
* Make an excess of wipe solution
* Decide when DH is taking his 2 weeks of parental leave from work
* Write birth plan and go over it with the doctors
* Tour the L&D floor in the hospital
* Pack hospital bag
* Pick the dates of the 2 weeks we get step son this summer
* Give indoor dog a good bath
* Charge video camera and empty SD cards

I'll add more when I remember everything else!

Although I keep getting stuff done, I keep finding things to add to the list...and it is starting to feel like this baby is going to be here before I know it!

No kidding! That's why I feel too overwhelmed to even start a list...
