The worst thing about knowing a baby is coming...

is realizing all the crap that needs to be done between now and then. We're at 10 weeks(ish), which means we're 1/4 of the way through this, which means that the due date is coming a lot faster than one would originally think.

We still need to figure out which room will be the nursery, and then we have to make that room the nursery. Right now, it will either be the office or the guest room. If it's the guest room, we will officially be surrendering our guest room which I'm sure the guests who are visiting to meet baby would love. If it's the office, there is a LOT of work that needs to be done in there, including painting and re carpeting (long story involving pets who have peed in there one too many times).

Then, there is the fact that we would still love to take some kind of vacation before baby. We haven't had one in over 2 years and we won't be having one for the next 18. So, we'd love to do something. But, we need to save both time and money.

And, do you know how many little things babies require? Car seats, bottles, crib, sheets/blankets, diapers, etc, etc, etc. Lots and lots of stuff.

Sheesh. Kid better hurry up and get a job.

I can't NOT chime in on this Supreme Court thing

So, it's no secret on this page that I am rapidly pro-life.  I don't beat around the bush on this topic.  But, what you may not know...
