Last weekend as a family of 4?

I as up most of the night thinking that this might be our last weekend as a family of 4! It is kind of scary!
Michael is off at a sleep over, Victoria was up most of the night not feeling good so I anticipate a long nap for her, Kevin will be watching the Vikings play in the playoffs and I am doing house stuff (just can't seem to stop!). So much for family time, huh:)
Oh well, we'll have six weeks to hang out together at home (except for when the kids are in school that is) so that will be good!

I feel like I have gotten most of my stuff taken care of, but keep looking for things I want to get done so that I won't have to worry about it with a baby around.
One of the biggest things that bug me is the painted train border in the room that will be the girl' bedroom. I keep thinking that all I need it a can of white paint:) I know this is something that will have to wait until after baby comes though, so maybe when my mom is here since she can watch the girls when I paint:) The whole thing should only take 20 minutes or so, I have just kept putting it off.
The rest of the stuff I want to do is: Get a rug for the girl's room, get fabric to finish up Michael's drapes and fabric for the girls' room drapes, buy a diaper bag, baby bathtub and a big, really flat, door mat for the door by the kitchen. This is very much needed as I now get to park in the garage again! Thank you Kevin for moving the extra car out of the way! This means I don't have to get up earlier in the am to scrape my car, and it will warm up so much faster!
I also want to purge more stuff out of the house, and take it to the Goodwill store. I love the way my living room is right now - with only the necessities in it!
Last night I cleaned out pretty much everything from my closet - putting all the maternity clothes in a bucket (I will be living out of that bucket until baby comes! but at least I can get it back to the rightful owner as soon as I am done with the clothes and have them washed!) and sorting out the clothes I desperately want to fit into again, but know I won't.

Anyways, instead of wasting time on the computer, I should get to work:) Cross your fingers for the Vikings to advance to the next round!!! Go Vikes, Victoria says!
