To Do List

The following is a list that has been clogging up my synapses for the last week and has caused me to occasionally hyperventilate in a corner.  I'm hoping if I write it down, my ulcer will cease and desist.

ahem...

THINGS THAT NEED TO BE DONE WITHIN THE NEXT 6 WEEKS, OR THE WORLD WILL END:
(the abridged version)

1. Paint bathroom
2. Remove remaining wallpaper backing in said bathroom prior to painting
3. Hang items in Eli's room
4. Arrange/Organize Scout's room
5. Wash Scout's bedding, blankets and clothing
6. Buy Dreft
7. Hang frames in living room
8. Finish painting Scout's dresser
9. Line Scout's dresser drawers
10. Go to Ikea/Michaels to buy finishing nursery touches
11. Clean the bathroom
12. Paint my toenails (or bribe someone else to do it, as I find it increasingly difficult to see my toes)
13. Cut my hair (or whatever you would call the current hot mess atop my head)
14. Get Eli over his fear of church nursery, clapping and loud noises (which will be detailed in another post)
15. Get Eli's hair cut
16. Buy a big brother gift for Eli
17. Continue to pray that this child will be easier to breastfeed than Eli was
18. Sterilize breast pump accessories and bottles
19. Buy bottles
20. ...

Okay, never mind, this list is making it worse.  I think my blood pressure is dangerously high.
