Baby Preparations

Today was an immensely relaxing day, and for that I am incredibly  grateful! The Doc had a staff meeting to attend, other than that it was his day off... so we ran errands together. I love when we get to run errands together, mainly because it doesn't happen very often. It is usually him or I getting the necessities, but rarely is it us together due to schedules etc. So we wandered through Target for pop 10- 12 packs for $5 (it is on coke products, but with spring around the corner our consumption of pop/soda/ coke whatevs you call it, increases significantly), we bought two Dr. Seuss board books for the baby, since they are on sale in honor of Dr. Seuss's  birthday in March. They have some great specials on books, that would be fun for Easter baskets! We also bought diapers in size 2, since we don't know how big baby is going to be. I had a coupon and it was buy 2 boxes get a $10 gift card, and we bought Easter candy! The Cadbury hard sugar shell eggs, with dark chocolate. They are my favorite, but you can only get them at Christmas and Easter. We then went to visit The Docs grandma, we had a great visit. We had lunch at Burger King, neither of us had been inside since they tore down the old one and completely rebuilt last summer. We then went to our appointment, which lasted about 15 minutes. We haven't heard the results yet, which means I am sure that they are grand! We had our repaired and we actually have heat in it, and it is amazing... if only it will stay that way until we can replace it with something newer. On our way home we got raspberry leaf tea and then we just relaxed at home a little bit before we did some finishing touches on the nursery... we hung the door curtain and the baby quilt... I forgot to have The Doc attach our changing pad to the back of the dresser, so we will have to do that another time... I also made labels for all of the little contianers in the nursery andthe dreser drawers. I am sure that I will have to do this again, but for now it works. I just didn't want anyone to have to think about where we have placed things. Quick and easy is how we like things here. Today is focused on finishing up laundry, because things keep coming up and we just can't seem to get it done. Tonight when The Doc comes home we are going to do a full house deep cleaning/ disinfect. It hasn't been done in awhile and it would be good to have everything done before the baby comes. The whole 9 yards... vacuuming, sweeping, mopping, dusting... that is my motivation for getting all of our laundry done, so that I can get our household laundry done-- so that everything is ready to roll.
