That is why I spent most of my day making checklists for our move. I made the following checklists:
-things I can start preparing now
-things to prepare a month in advance
-things I need to prepare a week before the move
-things I need to do on moving day
-I made a list of the order in which I should pack things
-I made of list of people/places to change our address with
-I made a cleaning check list for the apartment- I even color coded it to know how far in advance before the move I should clean everything
-items that are now allowed in moving vans
-items that we should not put in the moving van
-things to do when we arrive in our new home
-items that should be in the back of the moving truck
-items Makenzie will need in the car
-items we will need in the car
-questions I need to ask our landlord pertaining to our move
-things I need to tell the people moving in after us
I did start by making a checklist of the checklists I needed to make....
Now all I need to know is where we are moving to....
I'm really not crazy. We know for sure we are moving at the end of April and we don't know where. That is in two months people. I just felt the need to find some control over the situation so that the second we know where we are going, I can get to work in an organized fashion. I may have very little time to get everything done! So don't make fun of me! If you make fun I will assume it is because you are jealous of my checklists.

You want to know the ironic part? Makenzie did not want to eat dinner the night before. I tricked her into eating. As she was eating I was telling her that she had to eat because I did not want to be up with her all night with a hungry baby. So instead, I was up all night cleaning up the food that I made her eat. Maybe it wasn't ironic, maybe I just got what I deserved.
Although I know I still have a long road ahead of me and lots to learn, I would have to say that that night initiated me into motherhood....Oh the joys of motherhood...

For Valentine's Day Makenzie got a ring pop! Really the "present" wasn't the actual ring pop. It was the fact that I was allowing her to eat the ring pop. She did make a huge sticky mess but she loved every second of it.

It is great for people with slow internet connection because I only have to bring up one page to read all new blog entries
I follow about 90 blogs
I only have around 30 listed on my blog page
That makes me feel like a stalker
But, I only look at one blog where I have not actually met the people whose blog I am reading..so it isn' t too bad.
I know I didn't really do any explaining about what google reader actually is...but I am not sure I even know. I just list all the blogs that I read and it tells me when blogs are updated and lists them all on one page for me to look at. I know you can put things on there that are not blogs...such as news updates, sports updates, etc, but I haven't done that yet. Also, I don't think that anyone else can see the blogs that you list.
Also, I discovered Goodreads.com. It is fun to list and rate all the books you have read and see what your friends are reading. It is convenient to list all of the books you want to read so that you do not forget to read them.
I love all the fun google stuff!

Can she really be comfortable like that? I know it is mean that I put her down for a nap with her shoes on...but sometimes it just has to be done.
