Prepping for baby: meals, crafts, chores…

Yesterday, with football playing on the laptop situated on the kitchen counter, my husband and I prepped numerous frozen meals for after our second baby’s arrival.  I’m due tomorrow, so we’re cutting it close this time around with this “prep for baby” stuff.  However, yesterday really was a breakthrough.  We accomplished so much it was so rewarding.  I intend on making posts in the next couple weeks about the meals we prepped, as we eat them, so I can give you a real opinion of the food after it’s been cooked and eaten rather than just after it has been prepped and frozen.  Another huge benefit of prepping is that it will help us with our “no spend October” goal as well.  We spent about $80 at the grocery store Saturday which covered every single meal we made.  We made enough dinners for two adults to eat for well over two weeks, maybe even three!

We spend our breakthrough morning cleaning around the house, doing simple catch-up chores, and food prepped in the afternoon while simultaneously either watching football  (the husband) or reminding others to continue stirring (myself).  😉  In the evening after cleaning up the kitchen and eating our own lame dinners we relaxed for a bit watching a little of the Sunday Night Football game, and I worked on Baby #2’s quilt.  I was able to finish quilting it and squared it up so the only thing remaining is to put the trim around the edges and it will be finished! 😀

Yesterday was truly a great day for both baby preparedness and mental preparedness!  I’m hoping this little one makes her debut on Thursday, we’ll see! 🙂
