I started working on some lists while Max was sleeping. I don't know if I feel more organized now or more edgy! I made four lists...

1. Income Tax Return Needs List. We filed our taxes this morning and should be getting the return in around two weeks. I wanted to have everything planned out so we wouldn't be tempted to do really stupid stuff with the money. The list includes a new washer (ours doesn't spin and randomly overflows; to the point of flooding our entire apartment once), a test DH needs to take for work, things we need for Meghan and hospital expenses. I still owe them for Max! I'm planning on paying both bills out of this.

2. Hospital Bags. One for me and Dh to include things we need for Meghan, and also an overnight bag for Max in case who ever watches him can't stay at our house (as I'd prefer).

3. To Do List. Things I want to get done before my due date, including packing those bags, preparing meals, setting up baby equipment, shopping and cleaning!

4. Things To Buy for Meghan List. I have everything listed, down to diapers and pads for me!

Whew. I got exhausted just writing and talking about these things!!!

Oh its so funny you posted this!! I was JUST about to log off while the kids were napping and redo my to do list! It makes me feel more organize but depending on how long the todo list is I get anxious. So I really dont know if it helps or not. lol
Then I have to make a shopping list of the things I REALLY need for baby.

It's so hard not to add "wants" in with the needs because I know if it's not a need, DH won't let me buy it for Meghan. lol For example, I'd love to get a new bouncy seat and play mat. We bought the bouncy seat used and even with fresh batteries it now sounds like it's dieing all the time.

I have to use lists otherwise I'd never get anything accomplished. We are still waiting on dh's W-2 though. I can't wait to get it so we can file our taxes.

Thats how my boyfriend is. Luckily this is gonna be his first baby and he knows ABSOLUTELY nothing about baby gear. Heehee. Although when I am spending MY money he can care less. But I always seem to convince him we need a certain baby item (that we can really do without but its so cute I cant pass it up), and he gives in. I feel bad for doing it but as long as it isnt hurting him right?
That is why when our taxes come I want to be disciplined and buy what I need, ya know. So making the list and hoping that I can stick to it and not go in a totally diffrent direction helps, somewhat. I dont have any debts to pay off so Im usually splurging when I get the extra money. I need to be saving that money though since I have been out of work for months and I dont really have too much of an income right now, and what I do have needs to stay saved.

I love making lists!

I'm still waiting for both our W-2s and as soon as we get them, I am making an appt. to file for them. I think we are going to try and use any money we get to save.

But I have already started thinking about my hospital bag list. I want to wait until after my shower so I can decide if I want to pack anything I get from it.

But I have already been thinking about what I should pack for myself...someone said to pack high-waist undies b/c if you end up having to have a c-section, you don't want anything to irritate your stitches, and bikini and low rise sometimes do. I also want to find something cute to wear post delivery, especially when we have visitors, but I don't want anything too crazy b/c I'm gonig to probably ruin it and it needs to be accesible to nurse. I read that even wrapping a pretty feminine shawl over your hospital gown makes you feel nice. Maybe I will do that...any ideas?

I have my nesting list pretty much updated and will start to tackle those chores closer to delivery.

I also need to start writing thank-you's out, especially for anything we received over Christmas. I don't want to slack on these and end up forgetting someone.

I'm a total list person as well!!!


I have a list of forms we need to get in the mail before we can do our taxes (w2s, things from banks, etc).....not really going to do a list of what I need for Karsyn..I'll wait until after my shower to do this. With the money from our tax return...$2500 will be put away to pay off the hospital as soon as Karsyn is born...the rest will go straight to Roth IRAs, college funds for the girls and maybe we'll use some of it for projects for the house.
