Staying Distracted

I tell you what. This baby is keeping us on our toes already.  We thought it was coming a few weekends ago (that's why no blog post last week), but it changed it's mind... So with my wonderful husband back to work and my doula back home, I'm trying to stay distracted and keep up with housework.  

I'm making daily to-do lists right now, because my brain is gone. It has left the building... It seems I can barely finish a sentence right now-let alone remember what I'm supposed to do. We also have a long list of things that need to be done outside once I get my strength back and can.. Some of those require hubby's help, some do not (the dog just a couple of nap companions-Mickey and Minnie Mouse, courtesy of Grace) so I'm making a list so I remember everything I'm thinking about as I'm sitting here resting.  

We have a few household projects that I'm hoping both will get done this summer-one definitely will, we'll see about the other.  The carpet needs pulled from the kid's room.. There is a hole in it (BEAUTIFUL hardwood underneath, I'm just praying it goes throughout the room) and true to kid form, they pick at the hole, as does the cat and it's not in a place where we can just cover it up.. So that job shouldn't be too difficult, but it also dawned on me that floor will be very cold come next winter, so I'm finding another use for all these fabric scraps and will crochet rag rugs.  I'm working on cutting those strips as I can, we just need to make it down to the local thrift store to see if she has a huge crochet hook.  The other project is to make a play room under the stairs.  We convinced my dad into crawling into a circulation vent hole to check out under the stairs for us, and it's mostly finished under there!  A friend had confirmed that there used to a walk through pantry there (it's now a bathroom...and my pantry is a set of shelves)... So all we have to do is cut open the drywall, put something up to cover the hole to the bathroom and reuse some of the good carpet from the kid's room to put on the floor-or some soft, easy to clean flooring. While it seems very simple, we are still learning the basics to carpentry so are trying to convince my dad to come at least supervise-that and we need his saws-all. :D   

I did get some fabric cut for a baby-in-a-bag outfit to sew....Then realized I can't reach the sewing machine...So... my cut fabric and instructions sit beside the sewing machine, just a-waiting.  

Our little boy turned 6 last week.  He picked pizza and a superhero cake... So since I didn't feel like making a decorating a cake, we went and bought an ice cream cake, then had him pick out his favorite little superhero guys to go on top.  

I think one of my biggest conundrums right now, is finding a year round homeschool planner I think will work.  I'm at the point where I'm sure I'll have to buy one-at least this year-instead of coming up with my own, but the question is.. what do I want? I can picture it in my head-just don't ask me to explain it, so I'll just have to go looking I suppose.  

That's all to talk about this week! Have a great week (or two)!
