The Home Stretch

After nearly two months of guests - Sue's cousin had been living with us since early November, and then we had about two weeks of hosting relatives over Christmas, then a surprise visit from greenexecutive - everyone's gone and we finally have our house to ourselves! And it'll stay that way for about ten weeks now. I'd like to relax and enjoy our last bit of time alone, but there's so much to do. As I suspected, not much baby-related got done in November or December, so it's finally time to knuckle down, rearrange furniture in at least four rooms on three floors, paint and clean and shop and make room and be as social as possible before March. I think I need to take my 12 weeks off starting now.
