Jen and I were supposed to have a gaggle of house guests this weekend, so yesterday we worked like dogs on the house. And I do think it looks good. We still have a lot to do, like hang artwork and put together the china closet (which means putting the china away someday) and figure out what's in the basement and of course there's the giant project called the Ugly Room that right now is a receptacle for crap because we're not touching it until we turn it into a nursery. So we have some built-in procrastination time!
But yesterday we got the blinds up in the bedroom (so we could tie the curtains up), got the cheapy furniture pieces assembled for the bathroom (so we could get the bins and boxes out of there and get the stuff put away), got the sheet off the guest room windows (gotta get some blinds or curtains or something soon), finally unpacked and put away all of the DVDs and VHSs, and did a lot of cleaning. Perhaps today I will take some pictures of the bedroom and the bathroom, since those (aside from artwork) are mostly done.
It's funny, I had to actually sit down and take breaks because I was getting weird pains - probably that round ligament pain that people talk about. I have been feeling so good with the lack of spotting that I was like, "Oh yeah, I'm pregnant." Heh.
Last night we had dinner with stacy
, which was a good time. We were going to hear her boyfriend's other band play, but the opening band was really dragging on getting started so we couldn't. The show was supposed to start around 8, and we left around 9:30 and the opening band hadn't started yet. So frustrating. I would have liked to see them.
My coworkers were supposed to come over yesterday and stay over, but they called in the middle of the afternoon to say they weren't coming because of bad weather. (What bad weather? Whatever.) So then stacy
was going to sleep over, but that got thwarted because the show was going to get out late and she didn't want to wake us. So NO ONE came to stay with us! So sad, but the house looks great!
We made our first baby purchases this weekend and also received our first baby gift! We've come out of jinx mode (a little) and did buy two really cute little baby outfits that were on super sale - and also did a little looking around some stores to get nursery ideas. And then stacy
crocheted us a baby blanket that is simply /gorgeous/. (I will have to take a picture of that, too.) It's such a pretty green color, the same color we were looking into for nursery action, hence it's perfect. stacy
