    whew. you can do it!

    unsolicited advice (as if you needed anyone to add to your list)…..
    stock up on nonparishables (laundry det., dishwasher det., shampoo for you, soap, etc.)

    at least this doesn’t require an “extra” trip, just buy 2 of the items next time you are at the store. you won’t want the pressure to run to the store for that one item you ran out of and really need.

      I didn’t realize I was stocking up on things until you mentioned it. But I’ve been buying big things of tp, paper towels, shampoo, hair products, laundry detergent on all my recent Target runs! 🙂

    That’s not too bad of a list! You can do it!

    In between my feelings of crazy nesting, I remind myself that as long as the baby has a place to sleep and something to eat, the rest CAN be done later. Not ideal, but certainly possible.

    Then I go and organize onesies or work on cleaning out the nursery to make room for the crib. 🙂

    • Suz says:

      Yes, that’s what my husband’s been saying ~ that we have time & that it’ll get done eventually. But it’ll feel so good to have everything in it’s place too. 🙂
