Checklists


It's probably the nature of the "nesting" phase of pregnancy that I feel like I'm most certainly going to run out of time to do stuff before the baby gets here. Beyond the fact that I only have 6 weeks left (holy crap!), I feel like I can only accomplish a little bit in any given day. And for a person that normally sets about a really productive day with at least 6 things on her list, and actually accomplishes most of them, that can be very very frustrating. I just get so tired SO fast.

Last night I managed to do 2 loads of laundry, unload and reload the dishwasher, and finish touching up the paint in the nursery. When I was done I was wiped out. That's how pitiful my energy levels are right now. I order things online instead of actually going to the store. I drive through for food so I don't have to get out of the car. It's amazing how tired it can make you to grow a human. . .


So now, I've decided to make checklists. I will endeavor to check 2 things off the list each day. Some of them can be done at lunch time, others after work. If I can manage to check 2 off each day, I MIGHT finish everything I need to do before the baby comes. . . IF I can stop adding 3-4 new things each day.

I know what you mean about being tired. This waking up every 45 minutes at night to go to the bathroom is not my favorite. It takes a toll on me the rest of the day. I guess it's getting me ready for the baby . . .
