Do you have any projects (household, renos, crafts, decorating, etc.) that you want to have accomplished before the baby arrives? What are they? Share your "list"!

Here's some of what I want to get done... yes, this is optimistic!

-Paint the entire fence (or organize to have it painted by someone else, lol!)
-paint the hallway and upper landing
-get the basement cleaned out
-get at least two weeks worth (hopefully more) of frozen casserole meals ready in the freezer for baby's first month home
-get a herb garden started for summer
-get bathroom painted
-get hand-me-down kids clothes organized into bins by age, and stored in the attic
-finish crochet blanket
-make rag quilt for baby
-make duvet cover for DS, and pillowcases

Hmm, that's all I can think of right now...

-Rearrange furniture in my room so I can fit co-sleeper, swing and new dressers.

-Deep clean every room in the house.

-Go through DS's toys and throw out all things he doesn't use and make sure the tiny miscellaneous pieces are organized and everything is in separate labeled bins.

That's all I can think of besides still needing to buy EVERYTHING!

I need to get you all a picture of the state that my bedroom is in right now. We are remodeling the master bedroom before baby gets here.

I also have to deep clean the whole house and clean out a few closets.

Sell my house! I still don't have it for sale yet. My parents are giving us money for a down payment on a new house. They told us the plan in November. Since then we have been working like crazy to get the house done. We still have to:

Get carpet installed--it is picked out and paid for, just waiting on Lowes
New back door
Finish painting kitchen cabinets
Replace part of the back fence
New sod in the backyard
Order furniture for baby

I am hoping to have everything done within the next 2 weeks.

I don't have any projects as such, but I do want to get into a routine where housework is done regularly, so that the house is easier to maintain....
