I am driving Slice crazy.
He knows it, I know it - and for the record, I am driving myself crazy too.
Call it "nesting" or whatever you want ... but all that I can think about now (day and night!) is what to buy, how to organize and rearrange and decorate our living room/storage room/bedroom before the baby comes. I've been shopping online and in stores and in my dreams, going over our options again and again.
In the last four days I've spent over 4 hours looking at car seats and strollers alone.
(The options are endless, you know?)
As I said before, we've been given a lot of things for the baby - for which I am eternally grateful. Not only because we didn't have to pay for them, but because I didn't have to decide on them.
See, remember a long time ago I told you that Slice has been hooked up with more free stuff than anyone you know? Well, what I didn't realize until last week was that, aside from the IKEA filing cabinet we bought over Christmas break, WE HAVE NEVER BOUGHT A PIECE OF FURNITURE. Everything we own was given to us by someone else: bed, couches (5!), TVs, table & chairs, dresser, bookshelves, desks. You name it, we haven't bought it.
What this means is that we have never had to decide what colors, themes, or styles we like. Even with all the HGTV we've watched together. I should be able to buy a dang bookshelf - or even a curtain - but WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE IT IN THREE YEARS??
Also, does anyone have recommendations/warnings about car seat travel systems before I make my final decision?
