On Saturday M got called into work for an emergency, and what was supposed to be an hour or two turned into an almost thirteen hour work day for him. I was really bummed as I kept getting 'still not done. looks like I'll be here awhile' texts.
I actually had a relaxing morning and even got the movie Midnight in Paris in before I got out of bed. Last week I had really let myself stress over all the junk in almost every room in our house. The only rooms that were even functional were the living room, our bedroom, and the kitchen. And when I say functional, I mean BASIC functions. In no way were they complete or up to my standard of being "done". But I've been known to have pretty high standards so it's relative, I suppose.
Before I sound too negative, I will say that we have had some "house" accomplishments in the past week. We spent two nights and finally got our garage organized. There's a pile of things to sell, my home decor/crafts shelf, boxes to eventually store in the attic, and all of M's tools, saws, you name it. We actually had room to park a car.
Next, we were able to get our sectional from World Market. We had waited almost a month for it to finally come in. I wasn't sure about it at first, but with some positioning, imagination of future items, and some pillows- I now love it! I think it fits the room very well, doesn't take up a bunch of visual space, and is really comfortable.
Back to Saturday, I made a mental list starting with our bedroom, on to the guest room, and finally the nursery.
Yesterday, M decided to tackle Noah's room and begin priming before he and his dad paint this coming weekend. I'm anxious to get everything set up and organized. I think it really will help me relax mentally in the last month knowing it's ready. Noah will be sleeping in our room for awhile once he's born, but eventually he's going to have a great nursery to sleep/play in.
Speaking of Noah, I'm 30 weeks as of this past Friday! 10 more weeks, give or take, and we'll get to meet him.
I seriously. can't. wait.
