I want to get it done sorta early this time as I'll be pregnant in the summer and we live (not literally but we will be on my dad's boat) on the lake during the summer. My kids get outta school in June, DS birthday is at the end of June, we are in Georgia visiting family in July, DH birthday is in the middle of July, and those are the major things before it's almost baby time. I also want to paint my older boy's room, which is a job and half b/c their room is so big-- I may hire somebody as DH is not a good painter. I like to save all the little details-- packing my bag, washing baby's clothes, etc. for towards the VERY end but I'm sorta starting to feel stressed. DH says most-likely, my step-son will be moving back with his mom this summer, or that he will be transitioning into that and then moving back in with her at the end of July. It will then be my job to pack all of his stuff up to go with her (except for things like his bed, toy box, etc. that will stay here for when he comes to visit). This isn't a shock, him living with us was always supposed to be temporary, I'm just stressing now about time restraints. I'm terrified I'm going to miss my DS's first day of school as well! It's on August 17th but I can almost gaurantee that I'll go over my due date by about a week, so that'll put me at the 9th-- I should feel up to going by then but what do you think? I have to work something out for getting DS to school as I do not want to put him on a bus and the first few weeks, I don't want to stress myself out about having to wake up my toddler and dealing with her and a nursing newborn getting him to school..... all this started going through my head and I'm kicking myself b/c I'm sitting here doing nothing about any of it. We still have a ton of stuff to get-- carseat, the a/c in my van needs to be fixed (doing that next week), monitor (dd uses the old one still as we are still night-time potty trainging), cloth diapers are set (thank goodness), i do need some newborn and size ones though until he can fit into the CDs-- i just need to sit down and make out a detailed list of stuff to do. anybody else planning on finishing up the nursery early or stressing about stuff to get done? oh! and then i start thinking! omg! how am i going to go christmas shopping (we usually start in aug. b/c we are not good a saving money so we scatter it out when we have the money)?!?! i guess i'll be taking my baby with me (i had a very stressful first few weeks/months nursing DS). i'm really stressing b/c i know me, if i don't make myself do it, i'll keep putting it off and i'm in the putting off kinda mood lately..... ugh.
