The Crazy Season

I am just starting to feel like I'm getting the house sorted for baby #2 (due 6 April 2011!)
We (hubby & I) need to clear out our office, to make it the 3rd bedroom. Our office is just jam-packed with rubbish. I have slowly been sorting it out and boxing things up that we don't need to have out, but that we can't bare to get rid of.
But last night and today, almost real progress is getting made. We have moved all the computer bits into our bedroom, on a 'new' second hand desk. Which makes our room seem half the size, but it's quite cosy, as long as we hang our clothes up each night! haha
Hubby told me I have to take the Christmas tree down right away if we are going to sort the overloaded office out. We have about 10 plastic storage containers in there at the moment, and the Christmas boxes need to be put back into the shed first, therefore the tree and decorations have to go.
But I can now see light at the end of the tunnel, finally! Soon all the office will be packed down into boxes and can all be put outside, once we buy another shed. Yep, we do need to buy another shed. But at least if all the boxes are packed, moving them is easy peasy japanesy.

I'm also freaking out, there is a baby, and nothing is going to stop it from coming out... And my other child, the first born, will still be living here. With a first child I had no idea how hard it was going to be... but now that I know how hard a baby is, I don't know if I can do it with a little toddler too!
How is it that we are allowed to get pregnant when we already have a child in the house!?

Christmas Eve Eve

I went and did my final grocery shop today, before Christmas, hopefully I remembered everything. Although I am now thinking I should have bought this and that... maybe I'll get the hubby to go on his way home from work to pick some more things up. But I didn't want to go tomorrow, as there will be so many crazy last minute shoppers! Even today people were rude and inconsiderate, not like the normal Countdown Supermarket crowd.

Recently I've been wondering about life and comparing my life to others. I always think I have it so bad. But then I hear other stories, on the news, or thru friends and I have to come to terms with the fact that my life is what it is, and I should make the most of it. I have a house, a semi-decent husband, and 1.5kids (I'm still undecided if this is good or bad, but I do know that I really wanted kids before I had them, and plenty of people, without kids, who would probably happily have my kid). I still wish I had it better, and I hope that one day me or husband win lotto or get a massive payout from somewhere so we can get the house we want. Money isn't everything, but it would sure help out a whole lot!

Christmas Time Mistletoe & Non Alcholic Wine

So much to do. I still have Christmas Cards to write. I have dramatically cut down my list this year. Although, at this rate, no one will get a card this year!

This morning I went to the shops to get a few things from the supermarket and some last minute Christmas present shopping. I was out for ages! It was so busy! Normally you can walk fast around the mall... but not now, there are people with kids wandering slowly, old men using trolleys to hobble around with, and stupid people in the middle of the aisles trying to stop you and sell you their stuff!
Then I foolishly went to Pak N Save for my quick supermarket shop... I'd forgotten how people who shop their have NO TROLLEY COURTESY! so I kept getting stuck. Also, this particualy Pak N Save has changed their entrance, so you walk thru the store backwards... which totally threw me. So I got milk first, and my apples last. Not to mention I didn't know where anything else was.

At least the weather is lovely and I'm home in one piece!
Baby is kicking around lots, I love feeling her/him move about :)
