Do you have any goals before baby get here? They can be as big or as little as you want


I'd love to have my daughter's room painted, the baby's painted, and possible our room repainted. If I'm really motivated I'd love to start repainting the trim. It looks pretty bad.

I'd also love to have some of our credit cards paid off.

Gardening would be nice too.

No not really. We can't buy a house until next summer, so that is out for this year. I already bought a larger vehicle. I guess it is just to get the house all cleaned up and try to keep it that way.

As soon as I kick this m/s I have a lot of yard work to do. I guess that will be my main pregnancy goal which is funny because it was the same goal I had while pg with my 3 year old! I built a retaining wall, a raised garden, dug up a bunch of tree roots- some requiring the reciprocating saw. My nesting seems to be outdoors!

I just got this today, off craigslist!



I'd like to fix this puppy up, get a second coat of paint in the nursery/paint the trim if necessary, and finish another upholstery project for my living room. And I'd like to get more gardening done - our backyard looks good but it can use a little extra lovin', always!

Around the house:

-Get the big kids moved in together. Get them new bedding.
-Paint the baby's room if its a boy (room is pink now).
-Organize my hall/craft closet
-Touch up the trim around the house that is scuffed

Decide on a new vehicle for me this summer and buy it!

Go on a kid free vacation this summer. (Will be a while before I can do this again!)

Enjoy the summer with just 2 kids, and enjoy getting ready for the baby together.

Cook and freeze a bunch in August/Sept.

finish my nutrition degree and (this isn't really my goal it's my husbands) clear out the ****** 2nd bedroom and make it into somewhat of a nursery, not just a collectible dumping ground. and save up money to put a 30K deposit on a house by this time next year. and pay off husbands debt from said collectibles (15K), and develop my career to the point where it could support both of us and is entirely internet/computer based work from home.

I can't think of anything I'd like to have done. Not yet, I guess. I'm sure something will come up.

Keep my sanity!
Make it through a full load of summer classes if possible.
Try not to get too lonely with DH being gone.
Take classes on baby things (not too specific yet....)
Maybe take some fun things like sewing or cake decorating to keep myself occupied
Read at least one classic all the way through (yeah..probably not those romance books take up all my time!)
Just keep overall busy while being as lazy as possible

Get our car situation sorted out.. right now we're buying DH a new car and my MIL is also buying one and giving me her old one.

Strip the wallpaper out of the guest bathroom and repaint. (If I have the energy, do the same for our bathroom) Also sort out the guest room so it can double as a nursery. This may take awhile since baby will be sharing our room for the first few months.

cleaning my house mostly and setting up a good savings for us just in case. i seem to never have money because i suck at saving it. i'm doing good though, i got 2 savings accounts set up, now it's just keeping the money in there. but, fingers crossed, so far so good.

I want to finish painting SO's office (I'm halfway done), get a Lego table for the playroom, finish cleaning up the yard, and build some sort of play fort for the boys outside. I think SO will have to do that one, he is much more resourceful than I am. Also, I need to finish painting the stairway walls. I need SO to bring up a large ladder for me since they are about 20 ft high in some places.

Buy a house, get a car for me. Currently we only have one vehicle because we didn't need two. That is obviously going to change. DH works a lot so I don't want to have to schedule all appointments around his schedule as it would be really hard.

I need to go through a bunch of our stuff and get rid of SO much stuff.
