Tackling the “to do” list
I have been somewhat lazy about tackling my “to do” list before the baby comes. I really should write the whole thing out and put it somewhere where I’ll be reminded!! But tonight I got several things accomplished and I feel good.
We found out a few weeks ago that our bank was discontinuing the rewards program where we got points when we used our debit card as a credit card. We signed up for this about 5 years ago and have never redeemed the points, so we had a nice little sum! Paul, being the unmaterialistic guy he is, said he didn’t want anything and told me to use the points to get something for me.
I scoured the catalog and came up with several possibilities, but I kept coming back to the e-readers. I probably wouldn’t buy one for myself, but I can see where they’d be nice! I weighed the options (I could only get a basic one) and decided on the Nook Simple Touch with Glow Light (or something like that). The LCD ones were out of my budget, and this one was the only e-ink one where you can read in the dark. While reading in bright sunlight is a pro for some people, the only chances I get to read are in the dark – waiting for Savannah to fall asleep and waiting for myself to fall asleep. I have read a few books on my iPod but I find the screen too small. Tonight I used almost all my rewards points to get the $150 gift card to buy my Nook! I’m excited. I hope I like it, and it doesn’t become an expensive habit of buying books! (Our library has e-books so we’ll see if that works well!)
Another thing I did tonight was order a new pail liner for my diapers. I noticed tonight that my pail liner is full of clean cuts – like someone took scissors to it. I am so confused! I can’t imagine it happened accidentally or during wash/dry, so my best guess is that Savannah somehow got a hold of scissors and had a ball. I ordered a new pail liner, and decided to also get some prefolds for New Baby. Maybe tomorrow I’ll get a chance to take inventory of what I have to see if I need to order anything else.
I wrote a few needed emails for the birth center, and also sent out an email to local friends asking if anyone is interested/willing to take Savannah while I’m at the hospital. I’m really anxious about that, and hopefully it will all work out.
Now it’s bedtime but for some reason I can’t sleep. My whole body is achy and my mind is racing with things I want to do tomorrow. Perhaps tomorrow Paul and I can work on getting Savannah’s new bunkbed put together! I’m excited about that!
One thought on “Tackling the “to do” list”
I’m so excited you went with the nook! My husband and I both have them (mine is first gen, his is simple touch) and we much prefer ebooks over physical books now. It’s so nice not to have to hold open the book and the simple touch is just a gorgeous interface – it should be easy to read while holding a little one :) Also the e-ink screens are so much easier on the eyes, and the battery life is awesome (I have an iPad and take both devices with me when I travel!) We get most of our books from the library too. Hope you like it!
