December Goals

Another month gone by, another un-checked to-do list!  Okay, I did manage to get some items checked off the list, but December is a busy month and there's a long list of things to get done this month, too!
 
Here's how I did in November.
 
November Goals
Get thank you notes out for both showers, and any gifts received for Baby M. - To be fair, a few have not been mailed out just yet, but they are written, in envelopes and I'm throwing them in holiday cards tonight.  #SavingonPostage
 
Update all the photos in our house, and add some picture frames to our TV stand in living room. - Fail!  Will be updating the hanging photos in our home in December, but going to wait until the new year to add the picture frames to our TV stand, since it's currently all Christmas-ed out!
 
Decide on a pediatrician for Baby M. - I've decided, but have yet to contact them to make sure they are accepting new patients.  Must.  Do.  Today.
Finally paint the little table for Baby M's nursery.

Organize kitchen cabinets. - Fail.  Maybe over my leave!
 
Order shelves for Baby M's nursery. - We lucked out and ended up finding the perfect shelves at Target for way cheaper than I thought I was going to have to spend!  HH put them up already, and they look darling.
 
Wash Baby M's newborn and 0-3 months and organize her dresser.

Purge and organize master bedroom closet, and dresser. - Fail.  A lot of a the reason I wanted to do this was to get my maternity vs. non-maternity clothes seperated, and since I am slowly trickling down the days of the huge belly (I'm well aware it won't pop back to it's pre-pregnancy size after delivery), I may wait until after Baby M arrives to do this.  My closet does need a cleaning in general though, being that there is very little floor currently visible.

Start organizing Baby M's closet - purchase modular unit and have HH set up! - We bought it, HH put it together, and it's already full of goodies for our little princess!
 
Order remaining wall decor for nursery. - Fail!  Must do soon!
 
Make mobile and crib skirt for Baby M's nursery. - Fail!  I did manage to make some adorable burp cloths with Gardening Momma though (post to come!).  Crib skirt will be made within the next two weeks, and the mobile may be on hold until Christmas comes and goes.  We'll see.
 
December Goals
Update photos hanging in our house and add photos to frames in Baby M's nursery.
 
Contact pediatrician for Baby M, and make sure they are accepting new patients and are aware of my due date.
 
Clean master bedroom closet.
 
Clean master bedroom: clear off top of dresser, floor surround bed, nightstands, etc.
 
Order or make remaining wall decor for Baby M's nursery.
 
Make crib skirt for Baby M's nursery.
 
Send thank you notes for Christmas gifts - if Baby M hasn't arrived by then, I figure I should get them done right after the holiday while I can!

I'm having the same issues with maternity/non-maternity clothes. I usually pack away my summer clothes until March or so. But then there are so many winter clothes I can't wear either that I just never bothered to unpack. I've been moving everything I can no longer wear to the guest room in the hopes I can pull it back out after the baby gets here. It's such a tricky process though that I just have clothes everywhere!
