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!
