To Do

In the next six months or so, by my reckoning, I have to:

Plan to host a baby swap. (No actual babies will be swapped.)

Shop for a new bedroom suite for the girls. (My mother is helping with this part, bless her.)

Get ready for Halloween.

Plan Flora’s sixth birthday party.

Get the baby’s room ready.

Have a baby.

Shop, wrap, and decorate for Christmas. (I may get off the hook as far as cooking.)

Plan Kate’s fourth birthday party. (She has specifically requested Chuck E. Cheese’s. I could cry.)

Plan a baptism.

And be a married maid of honor to Dr. Sis, whatever that may entail. (I really have no clue. Throw a party or two? Keep people in line?)

And that’s all on top of what I refer to as “the daily” around here (you know, work, school, bills, cleaning, laundry, etc.).

So, that’s why I bailed on Podcamp Pittsburgh 5, and arranging childcare and the like. But I sure hope the rest of all y’all are having fun!
