30 weeks and counting...

As you will probably guess from the content of this blog, I am getting a little bored.  Four weeks down and at least four more to go, the bedrest is starting to get to me.  I have completed almost all of the little "projects" I can do from the couch and I need some new ones.  Online Christmas shopping-check. Christmas cards-check. Online nursery shopping-check.  Thank you cards-check. Obsessive list making-check. Hired people to complete nursery-check. That was a hard one to do because I really wanted to do it myself. But seeing as how it is upstairs and I am supposed to stay downstairs and rest, that was not going to happen.  I haven't even seen it yet!  Granted, it is still a work in progress, but it is hard to keep from going up every hour to check on the progress.  I think it may be good for me to let other people "do" for me instead of trying to control everything like I usually do.  The only thing I need to control right now is protecting our sons.  And so far, I am doing a pretty good job. We have only been sent to L and D once for a shot to stop contractions and hopefully that is the only visit we will make until after 34 weeks.
My blog friend, Lori, had this list posted on her blog and I thought, why not.  I am not sure what title to give it other than 99 things I may or may not have done. If you find it interesting, copy it and post it on yours making the necessary changes for yourself.
