This n that

I got up with Rod this morning and started the day with a hot shower and a cup of coffee. It felt so good!! Usually I have been getting up with Payton and sneaking a shower in where it fits. Which is actually only usually about 30min extra sleep. I think I'm going to continue getting up with Rod, especially when the new baby arrives because who know when I'll get to shower then! I used to HAVE to shower first thing in the morning EVERY morning to even feel awake, or I would feel gross all day.

I've been having some labour anxiety lately. Especially when I think of how close it is! I know I can do it, it just isn't pleasant! And actually most of my anxiety isn't about the actual pain it's fear of delivering at home or someplace weird because I can't get to the hospital on time. Payton's delivery was very fast and I'm afraid this one will be faster! Or having Rod miss it because he's at work and can't get there in time. Or not realizing I'm in labour because I have a "regular" labor and actual "real" contractions and think it's not the real thing. With Payton my pain was like nothing described to me by any mom or my prenatal classes. I've been told to get to the hospital fast but what if I can't? Sigh. So much to worry about. Of course I also worry that this one will go way overdue and I will have to be induced and have a long hard labor that ends in c-section. Ok, I'm stopping now. As long as baby and I are healthy in the end is all that matters!!

Did 6 million loads of laundry yesterday, all of my unisex baby stuff has been washed and put away! YEAH!! Did I mention how sick of laundry I am? Made a nice meal yesterday, and there's left overs!! Double YEAH!!

So how does everyone organize kids toys? And scrap booking stuff when you don't have a specified work spot? And..well...everything...LOL!!

It's snowing....again.....

I organized my kids toys by age appropriateness and put away the stuff that they were too old or young for. Sometimes it seemed that they just had too many toys. Oh, maybe you really didn't mean for us to answer that. :)

No I totally ment for you to answer that! I really don't know where to get started!!

All hints are helpful!

dollar store. liyyle containers for the little odds and ends. baskets for leap pad books. baskets for other toys, diapers, receiving blankets and hair things.
our labor will be fine. you know i am a phone call away most days.

Couldn't help myself...froze the leftovers for after baby....need to freeze food......

I do the same as Misty. We also have been storing our baby toys in the attic.

Freezing left over are a great idea. Making muffins help too! Easy breaky when you have 2 kids.

Lots of big Rubbermaid Bins!! All my crafting are in those... then I stack them in the closet... come to think of it, I probably have 20 of those bins with all kinds of things in it.... winter clothes, clothes that don't fit me right now, christmas stuff, baby clothes, crafting, I love those Rubbermaid Bins!!!! They especially are awesome for how neat and tidy they look when you stack them :)
Good luck with your labour!

yup!!! bins ans baskets. bins for stuff you don't need everyday. They stack and you can write on them. And baskets for smaller things, if you have shelves to put them on. No shelves? Then small containers with lids. When J and L were little and I couldnt afford to just go buy containers, I sorted all their small toys into ice cream buckets (and similiar food containers like large coffee tins, etc. ) and labelled them and then stacked those in their closets. Small rubbermaid containers work as well.

and you have a deep freeze to do stuff in too so that is a bonus. We had some stuff frozen but because I couldn't eat onions it just fed Phil which we all know is a chore in itself. LOL. Just kidding dear!!
