QotD 10.11

What is one thing you REALLY need to get done? Why does it have to be done and by when?

Right now we have no dresser for clothes. So we've been getting clothes but they just go to random spots all over the house 'to keep safe'. My mom is now working on refinishing my brother's old dresser (she told me she would at the beginning of my pregnancy but is only starting it now since I kind of begged). I would have been happy to just get a new one but she wanted to do this to help. I just wish she did it faster sometimes!!

Then just a lot of reorganization! Moving some furniture around to put the baby stuff. We've been in the middle of a bathroom remodel that is FINALLY pretty much done.

Other than that it is just prepare my co-workers to take over my work and prepare my final class for my graduate degree and get all of that work done before delivery. I am hoping to work ahead and get it all done as quickly as possible in case she decides to make an early entrance!

Either switching my and the kids rooms OR moving their toys OUT of my room. Either way the toys will be out of my room. I need to be able to have a place for the babies bassinet and everything. Reorganise the livingroom and my closet so I can get the swing out of the closet and get it set up and use it.

Need to get the new guy more comfortable with his job so he can take over part of the girl that sits across from me's job so she can take over my job. Also need to talk to my boss about possibly working at homme part of the time.

I really need to get everything I need for having the baby. I've been stressing about it a lot lately! I was realizing I have SOO little right now. I have some clothes, a bath, a bouncer, and a bassinet. :eek: I just feel so unprepared right now. I am waiting until after my baby shower next week to buy stuff or whatever... But so far no one has gotten anything off my registry really. My cousin did send me a crib mattress and my mom bought a toy to help decorate my cake... but other than that.... :/ Freaking out. I just want to feel prepared. I know I'm only 30 weeks... but I'm realizing how little time there really is left.

Exams! I have my very final college exams on 10/24, 11/13, 11/20 & 11/21.

After that most important is clearing out the bookcases so that I can move my clothing in to them and clear space in the dresser in our room for the baby's stuff.

And then the usual things needed to be ready for baby.

Clearing out all of the baby stuff from the livingroom....because you can literally barely walk through our living room for all the baby stuff in there!

Hmm, this question should help me get organized lol Thanks

Need to get the baby dresser out of the garage on down here, where I can then launder and put away all her clothes, blankets, cloths, etc.

Need to get the bassinet set up in my room (which means clearing the corner table) and get the crib set up in what will be the kids room (right now it's my little boy's room. Hoping that having him help me put up the crib will be one more step in preparing him to have a baby sister).

Want to get my car cleaned, so that I can put the car seat base in there and know it's going into a clean area.

Want to organize my clothes, so that I have maternity clothes, post-partum cloths, and back to normal clothes.

Want to buy Sophie the Giraff (I WILL have one this time!)

Need to find a diaper bag.

*sigh* Need to pick a name.

Just kinda organizing the house and room - i did wash some blankets and burp rags over the weekend. I won't wash the clothes until November - I have bins of clothes i need to go through and then wash that and put it in baby's room - even though she'll be in our room. I have to find the bouncer and wash that ..... i did find all the bottles, and will sanitize those again and put them away in the cabnit and i have to get new plastic pieces for the bottles. I also have to get pump pieces so that will be ready to go....
