Re: Nesting Accountability Thread?

I'm sorry about your hubs what a time to freak out.

I'm interested in something like this! I'm a FTM and really have no clue about what HAS to be done before she comes home and what's fluff.

I'm game. Maybe we should just make a list of all the stuff we want to do before baby and we can come back and edit (cross them out) as we do them? I think the last ddc I was in did this

Here's my stuff! (some of the stuff dh will be doing, but its a list of all that needs to be done before baby) 2 weeks!!!

Get 2 new tires for the van
Get van detailed
Put big kid car seats in rear seat
Clean walls
Put together lingerie shelf for baby (for her bibs, socks, hats, ect)
Shampoo carpets
Organize and donate some toys
Organize living room
Install new faucet on kitchen sink
Pack away winter gear
Fix screen in entryway window
Replace belt on lawn mower
Install new door knob
Buy baby's car seat ($55 off with swagbucks gift cards!!!)
Install baby's car seat

Buy SD card for camera
Make and freeze 1 more dinner
Get oil changed in dh's truck
Get oil changed in van (probably end of may)
Organize under kitchen sink
Finish raking lawn
Order hip slimmer
Order new glasses for me


I'm sure I'll add more as I can think of it! Thankfully I've been picking away at things for a few weeks and try to keep up on keeping things tidy lol. I guess it'll pay off in the long run!

Should we do a weekly thread or a just before the baby comes thread? I love to show off before and after pictures too if anyone is game, but pictures are not necessary,

Re: Nesting Accountability Thread?

Brilliant idea! We are all busy so we have to accept what ever little time we can share
Good of hubby to re-join his family.

Yesterday, I reorganized the linned closets, put diapers in baskets in my closet and donated a laundry basket of Mat clothes I just don't like. Did 2 loads of laundry and brought out he kids' summer clothes and put them out on their closet shelf. Went through what they still liked and donated the remainder to daycare. Our closet has a floor again and I found a big box that never got unpacked last summer. By the looks of it, it is hoodies and Ts that I am determined to get into again but they may have to disappear into the electrical room until next winter. I wasn't sorting through it at 11 so it will be my project tonight.

Re: Nesting Accountability Thread?

I am thinking I will make a master list this week and post it and then pick tasks each week from my master list and post on my progress. I have lost a little steam the last week, but hoping to get back on track tomorrow. I was determined to go through each room of the house and donate/trash/sell by spring clean up in May. We have lived here 12 years and after 3 kids and several friends/relatives staying with us for periods of time, we have a ton to just clear out in our goal of living in a more minimalist manner. Getting pregnant and almost divorced, slowed me down, but I am hoping to still do this before the baby comes. Of course, I say this as my sister just dropped off all her old baby stuff. LOL... I had gotten rid of most of mine, so it is nice to get the stuff, just not quite ready for it and I am trying to get rid of stuff. I will also probably skip trying to sell too much at this point in time simply because I need to get rid of it.

Re: Nesting Accountability Thread?

I turned dd2 forward facing and so rearranged the car seats/booster in my van to get ready for the new baby. I usually don't do it this early but dd was fighting being rear faced. I took advantage of all the seats being out of the car and cleaned up quite a bit. I didn't realize how many crumbs got in there. I need to take it to be vacuumed out now.

I have a huge mental list of things I want to get done around the house before the baby is born. Down sizing and tossing stuff is the first thing on my list - I have been tossing things as I cross them but have not done too much at one time since I have already had to go to the hosp for the strong close together contractions I have been having.

I want my carpets cleaned as well. I am leaving that up to dh though. I think he is waiting until my edd is closer so I don't ask him to do it twice before the baby is born. He knows me too well. Ha!
