Nursery To Do's

J and I were standing in the nursery at the beginning of this weekend and begin to feel horribly overwhelmed. It's still SO far from where we want it to be in just 17 or so (preferably less, as I want to be done with the nursery by 37 weeks) week. To try and get our heads in the game, both organizationally (is that a word?) and financially, I made some lists. We have the list of what we need to do in the nursery and a list for when we're going to buy the rest of the nursery/baby items. I have them written down, but I'm going to list it out here, as well. I'm lazy, and it's an easy place for me to come look if I lose the paper lists. Plus, it'll help me stay on track as far as buying things earlier than planned. I tend to get a little anxious :) Feel free to ignore...
