    Exclamation need distractions!

    The kids start school next week, for the first time EVER I will have the house to myself for 6 hours

    the nursery is done. everything for baby is in place.

    Now what?

    I find myself thinking way too much about it, especially breastfeeding, I have become obsessed with researching different things and ways to do it, since I have did any homework about it in the past.

    Any suggestions on things to keep me busy? I have to make the kids halloween costumes, and re-upholsture (how the heck do u spell that?) my rocking chair, but that wont take more then a week.

    I might continue the babysitting job 5 days a week through september, but we still dont know, she might be moving. And we postponed the opening of our business till next summer, so i wont have a lot to do there.....

    Just enjoy! I'm sure you will find something that needs to get done! I would love to just sit and watch tv for a whole day. Do you scrapbook? That might waste some time.

    Ha! I was thinking this same thing!

    Scrapbooking is a great idea. I also think researching BFing is a great idea. It is good to be prepared to handle the problems & the pleasures. I would fit in some time to read a few books too.

    Gosh... I don't know what it would feel like to look for something to do... I'm envious.

    Do digital scrapbooking on your computer. There are free sites - I have some bookmarked at home if you want, you can also use powerpoint to scrapbook.

    Start a blog, read, borrow dvds from the library, sleep, write letters, do a layout for birth announcements so you just need to add details later, sew some Christmas gift bags, knit,

    Hope that gives you some ideas.
