I really like it when I have things to look forward to. I don't really like to have a tons of things planned, but to have something on the schedule for every couple of weeks is nice. It's like the carrot dangling out in front of me motivating me to keep plodding along. Between now and when the baby is due (less than 60 days now!) there are things on the calendar like:
~the 4th of July (Ian gets a 3 day weekend!)
~My daughter's 5th birthday
~a friend coming & a trip to six flags while he's here
~My oldest daughter's 9th birthday
~oodles of dr.s appointments (why are there so many??)
I think that looks like just enough to fill the time, yet not so much to seem overwhelming, because you know there's still other things to do like making meals, cleaning, changing diapers....
