Only 4 Weeks Left

. . . til my due date.

Where has time gone?!

This pregnancy has gone by so fast! And I'm not sure I'm ready for it to be ending so soon.
I know. . . people think I'm crazy when I say that. But I'm feeling pretty good - a little low in energy and some restless nights, but other than that the discomforts haven't been too bad. I am perfectly happy to live with those things for 4 weeks (or even more, honestly) since it means having more time to finish projects around the new house and finish preparing for the new baby.

There is still so much to do.

The linen shelves in the laundry room are only 3/4 of the way done. Which means the boxes of extra linens are not unpacked.

Can you believe I haven't even unpacked my boxes (and boxes and boxes) of clothes? Who wants to sort through and make space for a bunch of stuff you can't even wear?

The spare room (office/craft room) is still just a pile of boxes with stuff we obviously don't need or know what to do with (those boxes have been packed up for over a year and a half and we haven't had to get into them in the 2 months we've lived here).

I haven't hung anything on the walls in the living room.

The toys have to be sorted through and found a permanent home.

We need furniture for the downstairs living room and the office - but can't do much about that til we move out the boxes.

And I'd like to transform another room into Paige's big girl room and move her out of the nursery, but that entails a whole list of other projects that really can't get done until the rest of the list is completed. . . which means the baby will be rooming in with me for a while.

This new house thing should be fun. I think it would be if I had unlimited funds and/or time.

Baby girl, as excited as I am to meet you, just stay put as long as you'd like.

I don't think you're crazy, but I am jealous. I'm only 15 weeks and feel like I've been pregnant my whole life. ;o)

Moving bites. No if, ands, or buts. Especially when you feel pressure for things to get done by a certain date. Good luck. Once again, I need to adopt your attitude. Thanks for the example.

Wow! That went fast...for me! Congratulations. Sounds like you are nesting!? Or I guess just moving. :)
