I don’t particulary like very much about January.
It can be so cold, dark, and dreary and decidedly lacking without the novelty and magic of Christmas.
I don’t think I’m alone in my sentiments….
But there are some redeeming things about it:
Grapefruits are in abundance. And I just can’t get enough right now.
My outdoor thermometer reads 60 degrees and it is only supposed to get warmer
by the end of the week!!
And January always brings a fresh start and plans for some change. That is probably my favorite thing about it.
Looking ahead to the year we have before us, PLUS a nesting instinct that is about to drive my family insane, I have felt the need to make endless to-do lists. My latest is of things that probably need to be accomplished in the near future to make for a smooth arrival of Mayby and an easier transition once she is here.
Number 1 starts this weekend (wish us luck…ahhhhh)
Number 2 will start full force as soon as number one is accomplished, but we’ve already stocked up on juice boxes and marshmallows (treats) and big girl pants. She’s soooo excited!
The fabric for number 3 has arrived and prep is underway! Pictures to come of course.
Number 4 is slowly coming together. Recent trip to IKEA gave us a color scheme and a starting point.
Number 5 has mostly been accomplished….but probably won’t stop until Mayby arrives 🙂
For number 6, I ordered some new blankets and will buy the onesies soon. Still haven’t put her name on anything yet. That will make it so official-aahhh! (possibly need to schedule another ultrasound before then…you know…just to be sure)
Number 7 has already been accomplished but will probably need to happen again once MG is moved into her new room.
Numbers 8,9, 11, and 12 will probably wait until May.
Number 10 is on the books for April!
And finally number 13…one can hope, right?
With all of these fun projects to keep me busy, I have a feeling this January will be one of the best to date,
