What is on your To-Do list?

I just wrote one up- used a small piece of paper and a crayon so I wouldn't go nuts. I have a lot to do but here's what made the list

De flea cats
Make bed (stuff duvet- tuck in sheets- crap I haven't done since it involves bending over)
clean tub (have it soaking in cleaner- smell is making me sick so I haven't wiped it down yet)
clear back patio
wash moldy bench we got for free
clear out my bedroom closet
assemble changing table
move tv (have one in the bedroom and never use it)
wash fridge
clean pantry

I am getting progressively less effective at housework as I get into my third trimester. I was really good the last few months. I stopped asking SO to do things and started doing them myself and was happy because they got done when I wanted them to.

Now I just lack energy and bendability.

  • I did a lot of prepping for tonight's holiday. DH just left for temple for Yom Kippur. He has an honor tonight. He'll be holding one of the Torahs during Kol Nidre. I'm home with the kids to finish cleaning up. Tomorrow is going to be a long day.

  • the only thing that WAS on it was general housecleaning and DS's trip to the dentist after-school.
    that's it..popping open a few beers in a bit, and calling it a day.
    i'll make DS something for dinner, but DH is on his own.

  • There are so many things I WANT to do- but somehow lately I just end up sitting or laying down with my eyes half open.

  • After looking at your list- I'd say that looks like "nesting behavior" :) How much longer?
