Breathless

March 3, 2009

In the last hour, I’ve:

~ organized my schedule for the week, and pulled together some information for my conference call
~ called aunt/uncle to update and clarify baby shower plans
~ called friend to wish her Happy Birthday, clarified baby shower plans
~ emailed friend to ask her about hunting down her brother, also baby shower related
~ emailed co-conspirator about baby advice book for, yep, baby shower
~ spoke to expectant grandparents about baby shower and baby book
~ locked myself out of my timekeeping system
~ called for help with timekeeping system, no luck
~ called WAMU Investments for my final balance: 778.49 Eeesh.
~ ordered flowers for grieving friend. She just lost her father last week, and her husband was diagnosed with kidney cancer in the same week. There has to be something more I can do for her.

There are still a million things to be done:
~ shopping for the baby shower
~ setting up the templates for the baby advice/photobook
~ collecting everyone’s parenting advice (if anyone has anything to share with a very nervous, expectant mother, I would love to include it!)
~ shopping for the mommy-to-be so she has something that’s for just her, and not All About Baby (I’m thinking of a Sephora gift card, but that’s about all I can come up with unless I can locate a spa near here. Thoughts, anyone?)
~ my educational project needs to be researched and worked on
~ have a meeting with my new tutor one evening this week
~ a class to attend tomorrow, so almost all my work for tomorrow has to be completed today

    For the soon-to-be mom, a gift card for a spa service would be great, but she probably won’t have much time to be away from baby. Plus, some new moms don’t want to be away from baby (I can’t imagine that ever happening to me if the time comes). So the gift card from Sephora seems appropriate. Or, find somebody who does in-home mani/pedi’s and treat her to that.

    DANG, all that in an hour?? that’s more than I do in a week. 🙂

    what’s a timekeeping system?

    I’d also be interested in the advice for nervous, first-time moms–TWO of my very good friends in the past week have come up preggers.

    oh and *fingers crossed*

  3. Get her a maid service! The last thing she”s going to want to do is clean her house when she’s up in the middle of the night feeding.

    L.A. Daze: I would offer babysitting services as well. I could go visit, take the baby with and go to the spa, let her get a massage while I watch the baby.

    It would be nicer if I could get her a maternity massage but there’s no one near her that is certified.

    Sense: 🙂 Sometimes I get really productive. Then I do nothing the rest of the week. Hehe. I was in panic mode, really.

    The timekeeping system is our electronic clocking in system. They make us change the password every six months – I can’t remember the constantly changing, weird combination of numbers that they keep asking for!

    I will pass along all advice that we gather. 🙂

    paranoidasteroid: Oooh, that’s a nice idea … I’ll look into that.
