Carpet and Appointments and To Do Lists, Oh My.

24 May 2011

I am having a get my shit together kind of week.  I have three appointments, my father in law’s birthday, the car is going into the mechanic, a trip 45 mintues away to IKEA, World Market, and Homegoods for last minute room additions, Finn has two classes, and sometime this week we’d actually like to see the newest addition to our family.  {I might add that they are leaving the hospital this morning and he still doesn’t have a name.}

The carpet for our bedroom comes tomorrow!  TOMORROW!!  People, we’ve been camping out in Finn’s room for two months while the construction and painting and baseboards were being stripped and new underlayment was being laid and on and on and on.  Two months!  TWO very pregnant hormone filled months.  The upheaval has been that much harder to take.

It seems as if it is the never ending project and I’m a little excited to be *thisclose* to being done.

I will have a closet rather than a dining room filled with our clothes.  I WILL BE ABLE TO USE MY DINING ROOM TABLE!  Oh, how I have missed you sweet dining room table.  I am going to buy two dozen roses for the very center of the table for the first dinner. 

Don’t even get me started on the french doors that have not been opened yet this year. 

We can’t actually move in to our room for 72 hours since new carpet isn’t the best for pregnant lungs, but Dave can finish up the closet install while we wait. 

Where was I?  Oh yes, getting my shit together… someone send help and a lot of it.

What is on your agenda for the week?

well...still got popping out a baby on the top of the list, name ready to go.

I'd like to start packing this weekend (ahem, we may have procured a house finally!) if the baby doesn't show her face before then. (she won't)

Hmmm not much else. Sleep. Complain, the usual ;-)

Once baby girl gets here, you seriously need a glass of wine. A big one. :)

Oh...and I was thinking about you the other day and the name Avery came to mind. Not sure if this has come across your radar yet (I'm a bit behind in my blog reading) but just in case it hadn't...
