Baptism Weekend!

Riley's getting baptised on Sunday! I am so excited for this event - it means so much to Kevin and I and to our families. But wow - what an event! I can't even imagine what a planning/stressing/cleaning/decorating machine I'll turn into for her first birthday party after seeing myself right now! I even took off work today and had Kevin's parents still babysit Riley so I could spend the day cleaning, getting the house ready, and shopping.

The minute Kevin walked out the door with Riley this morning, I took off. Here is what I accomplished today - all in eight hours, from 8am to 4pm!

  • Grocery shopped for party on Sunday
  • Bought mulch at nursery
  • Pulled weeds, laid mulch
  • Mixed up cookie dough, to bake later in the day
  • Cleaned bathrooms, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, living room, entire basement
  • Did 3 loads of laundry
  • Target trip
  • Lowes trip
  • Babies R Us trip
  • Christian Bookstore trip
  • Joann Fabrics trip
  • Stopped at post office to ship package
  • Showered

I'm exhausted just from reading that! And to think that yesterday I smiled, thinking about the nice nap I'd take halfway through the day. Yeah right! Now I'm just thankful for my mom and mother-in-law who will be helping with food on Saturday!

I can't wait to post pictures following the event!
