EXPENSES and TO-Do's!
I feel like Luke and I have got hit with so many darn expenses lately, so many things out of the ordinary that are making our normal monthly expenses out of control! Our to-do list is growing at a rapid rate as well, which is hard because I need Luke to do lots of the things on there and with him working longer hours it really only leaves the already packed weekends. I am trying to space things out as much as I can but there are quite a few that I want to get done before the lil mr arrives!
I made a list of some of them to try and see what to do during what month:
-Replace and fix the outside door in the basement
-Trim on house painted
-Purchase Glider and a nightstand or bookcase for next to it
-Buy a new camera, -OK this isn't necessarily do or die, but we really want a new good one before the baby arrives so that all those precious first pictures are perfect, I think we have the one we want picked out just need to order!
-Utilities for rental property - they are over 300 this month alone!
-Build shelves in baby's closet and figure out closet door situation -thinking of doing curtains and taking the doors down, opinions?
- figure out/pay for trip in December or January, this is for a wedding.
- Pay yearly subdivision dues, I did this but they have not cashed check yet.
- clean carpets or get them cleaned
- Thank you gift for shower hostess's
- Research birth annoucements and make list of addresses
- Baby: Do baby laundry, buy some clothes for me for after birth, make some frozen meals.
Luke is kicking it into full gear at work which means lots of hours and a tired hubby! I have been trying to do lots around the house and things like that to make life as easy as possible, there are just some things I cant do, and he wouldn't want me to! It will all get done but isn't life so much better when you have a list and you can checkity check things off! :)
