Nesting? I believe so!

Wow! I have worked and worked. I have had a very long list of things I wanted done before the baby comes and have been plugging away at it for what seems nearly months, literally. But, the time is ticking away and the baby will be hear soon. I have done tons of stuff over the last 4 weeks or so. I accomplished another "HUGE' project on Thursday evening. I knew I wanted it done, but didn't think it would actually happen pre-baby. I cleaned the carpets in my house myself. Mom and Dad have a Kirby vacuum cleaner, which also has attachments to clean carpets with and that is what I used. I have been putting this off for a very looonnnggg time, but was hoping to get it done professionally, which was just not working out. Soooo, I did it! Yeah!! My carpets are clean. I spent about 5 plus hours on it.
Also, since I posted last I have spent about 5 or so hours making a baby sling. I have had the material and rings for several weeks and just kept putting it off. I knew that if I did end up having the baby this weekend and did want to go to camp next weekend after the wedding that I would really want it. So, I dove in and got it done. I would like to think that the next time I make one it doesn't quite take me that long, maybe 4 hours or so. I enjoyed making it and my husband was quite impressed with it. I love sewing, but for some reason tend to put projects off and then thoroughly enjoy doing it once I have started it. Now it's done and that's one less thing on my list of "to do's".
Friday I go to the doctor again and I am so excited. We are hoping for good news and that we might have the baby this weekend. I only hope that my stakes aren't too high and that I'm not disappointed, if it doesn't happen the way I have it all envisioned. I will keep you all posted.

I know you will be glad when the little one is in your arms. We will be praying for you. I'm glad you felt like doing all that hard work on your carpet. Anxious to meet your new little one.

Love you,
