What's on your to-buy/ to-do lists atm?

I am making mine and having a hard time, I can't think of everything we need to buy and I know I'm missing a lot!

Oh man we have SO much to do still.... Remodel the room - Lay carpet, repair walls, paint, replace the doors.
Then we still need to buy cloth diapers, her bedding, curtains etc. some items for the hospital stay, and then eventually whatever we need that we don't get at the baby shower.

On my to-do:

Get everything out of her room that isn't meant to stay there after her birth (desk, boxes of stuff, bookshelf with reference books, everything in the closet)
Pack my hospital bag
Buy everything I will need to bathe her and change her for the first month or two including a diaper pail
Clean the air vents (or rather get DH to do it) so there is no mold (humid climate)
Research & buy a carseat and stroller
Buy a baby gate and a rug for her room so I can leave her door open but not have Gem go in there
Buy a mattress for her crib and prepare her bedding
Wash & sort all the clothes I have so far and try to fill any gaps so she'll have enough to get through the first 3 months at least
Fix the wallpaper (my stupid baby lhasa apso liked munching on wallpaper as a puppy, I have a few sections to replace)
Set up an account on a photo-printing website that is easy to upload to. I loathe taking and uploading pictures so I need to make it easy to do for myself
Look for a photographer to get some special pictures of my baby girl
Start making the enveloppes (write addresses) and choose the design for the birth announcement cards
Sign up to birthing classes in my hospital

we still need the car seat/travel system
diapers - I'm working on the cloth stash, will buy some sposies as well
clothes - take stock of what I still need (mostly small stuff like socks)

to do:
clear out space in the pantry for breastpump parts and bottles
probably a ton of other stuff I haven't thought of yet

things I might get or try to borrow:
one of those little mini-beds that goes in the parent's bed between the pillows
a boppy
a swing

baby Roger @ 7 months

Even if i have baby anytime soon she'll be in the nicu for a while so i'm not stressed about anything yet but i mostly have everything bought i just need to get everything together/organized

Shes sharing a room with ds so i need to get a new shelf system for his closet so i have two shelves. Once i do that i could start organizing all her clothes and stuff... i'm also waiting to get my my carseat and baby rocking chair from my sister and shes lending me her moby, mamaroo and a bunch of clothes.... so i dont have any of that yet either. I also need to go through all of ds's bins and see if there is anything neutral i could get out, i'm sure he had a few outfits in the smaller sizes a sister could wear. Otherwise all i have is small stuff like putting the crib mattress back up to the high setting, getting out the pack and play to pt in our bedroom etc
