Lots to do. Little time.

So it hit me yesterday that I have about 4 weeks to get a ton of stuff completed - both here and at work. Not sure why it hit me yesterday, but it did.
Saturday, usually the ONE day I try to plan nothing, I spent about 4 hours upstairs. Doing what, you ask? Let's see...
1. Took the girls' bunk beds apart and rearranged the room (after filling three ultra heavy duty bags with TRASH - how do kids keep so much crap?) Chris helped me with the beds, but man, dressers are hard to move when you are 8 mos preggo with about 30 pounds in the belly leading the way. Yikes.
2. Cleaned and trashed some of Connor's room. Sadly, he is much neater than his older sisters. We shall see how long that lasts.
3. Took some of the items from the girls' room and put them in Libby's room - some pillows, frames, etc. Then proceeded to paint a chair and side table to match the shelf that Aunt Maura gave us.
Whew. I'm tired. But feel I accomplished a lot. Now, I have to begin tackling work items. Lots to complete in a little time, but I am confident all will work out.
Off to clean Libby's room. :) So much for a lazy Saturday this week!
