As I was showering tonight, I noticed mildew on my shower curtain and was paralyzed with all the million things like washing it that I just do not have the capacity to wrap my mind around doing right now. I thought it could be a potentially fun, and hopefully not too traumatic topic.

Some that come to my mind...

1. shave my legs
2. put away ruby's laundry (everything she has worn since birth has come from the dresser in her unused room and ends up clean in "her" laundry basket in my room. which is her new "dresser.")
3. go through mail and bills
4. go to the dentist (it's been a few years and I can feel atleast one cavity)
5. deep clean the shower and the poor neglected shower curtain
6. wrap all the bagilion Christmas presents that will somehow be beautifully ready to give in 6 days
7. register one of our cars that still has an out of state plate
8. order my cats dry food (poor things have been eating only wet canned food and I don't think we give them enough to satisfy)
9. upload photos of ruby's early days off my DSLR
10. respond to a handful of personal emails

eeeep, I think I actually feel worse letting that all out!

Shave my legs.
Prepare myself real food.
Write out his birth story ( I really want to, but just thinking about it right now is too much lol)
Straighten my hair.
And the last one, that really sucks the most.. go to school I don't have anyone to watch Ares for me to make that happen. Not even for a couple hours a week! And he is such a high maintenance baby the thought of online classes really scares me.

-I also need to go to the dentist... It's been years for me as well.
-Yup, my shower is also severely neglected as well!
-Wash our bed sheets. I've been wanting to strip them for days now and never manage to do so. Especially the duvet cover is such a hastle to get back on. It's king size.
-Go through our cabinets and clean up!
-write her birth story!

I'm so happy; I vacuumed and steam mopped the hardwood floor section of the house! That felt like quite the accomplishment.

Ladies, reading this thread makes me feel so much better...at least I know I'm not alone in this

My list:
- scrubbing the showers
- hanging up curtains in our living room. I have had them since before Thanksgiving and just haven't hung them
- returning some items that I bought from GAP/Old Navy/Piperlime
- dusting bookshelves

I'm like Kristen with the twins' clothes. They keep wearing the same few things over and over because I wash them downstairs and then just take them right next door to our Master. They never make it upstairs to their room, and they have cute things upstairs that never make it onto their little bodies

Deep clean the shower for sure. It was on my list of things to do the day I went into labor...oh well

I have been able to shave my legs but I look like I had an incident with a lawnmower so may give up on that for a while.

Cleaning my teeth in the morning; it's gross but it never seems to get done until after lunch these days

Decorate for Christmas. After the tree took me 5 days to put up & decorate, I tossed away my plans to make our interior doors into frickin gifts with bows, a la pinterest haha.

I need to do so much stuff!!

-shave legs (its winter so I really stop then lol)
-organize and clean out my closet
-clean anything and everything (shower for sure!)
-put away maternity clothes
-put away clothes Beaux has already out grown
-get my car washed

Pretty much anything cleaning. While I was pregnant I got spoiled and had a lady coming once week to clean. Now I can't get her to come anymore and I don't have a lot of time to clean. So hoping she will start back up soon.

I hate to admit it but... Sex! Maybe it's because I'm a first time mom, I don't know... But I just can't seem to squeeze it in (no pun intended)! Oh, and eating... I'm back to 120...almost pre-pregnancy weight already!
