So Tired, and So Busy

School is in full motion.  All of the activities have started.  I had 2 Cub Scout meetings, 1 Boy Scout meeting, Cross Country practices to pick up from, a Cross Country meet on Thursday, a Doctors appointment with one of the kids, etc.  I also had to run to the pediatrician’s office to get a copy of a shot record.  Today R had a Cross Country meet at 8 am.  We had to get up at 6:15, just to get there on time.  It is go, go, go.

I have been collapsing into bed, exhausted, each night.  I have been keeping up with the house work and laundry, but not much else.  Thankfully, my husband is continuing the momentum with the cleaning.  He and my son R want a tool and I said if they got the other half of the basement cleaned out that they could get it.  It keeps them both motivated!

I have a Doctor’s appointment on Monday.  I will be 28 weeks.  Crazy to think about.  I am hoping for having this baby around 38 weeks so that she isn’t too big.  That is 10 weeks or about 72 more days.  When I think in terms of days instead of weeks, I realize that she will be here before we know it.

I have almost everything that I need to get started except for the car seat/stroller that I want.  A nice lady gave me clothes, burp cloths, bibs, coats, etc. for up to 2T.  I will need to fill in with what I don’t have, but that was a huge blessing.  Someone gave me a crib, a portable high chair, and a pack and play.   I bought a bouncy seat and a car seat cover, to help keep her warm without having to put a snowsuit on her just to leave the house.  I would like to get a sling, but it’s not critical for a little while.  I am definitely thinking about getting ready.  As the belly grows, so does making sure I have all that I need a priority.

Here are a few pictures of what we have been up to!  Have a great weekend!

S finishing up the Summer Reading Program. He was the only one that cared about getting his picture taken.

Our clean basement!

Our new shelves that have our stuff organized!

Extra food and Christmas stuff. I still need to go through the Christmas stuff and get it organized. Our pantry is small, so I put extra stuff down on the shelf.
