Sorry about neglecting the site . . . again. Things have just been so crazy around here with still being pregnant sick, having appointments, getting Abs’s big girl room ready, new baby planning, moving furniture, organizing, and prepping for Abs’s birthday, along with the usual housewife stuff I need to do.
Our house looks pretty rough right now– as far as clutter and organization. I’m typing from in the DINING room. We used to have an office, but now, that’s turning into Abs’s big girl room. As I look around the dining room, there are SIX tables/desks in here: the kitchen table, my computer desk, J’s computer desk, my sewing machine desk, Abs’s play table, and the new baby’s changing table. Wow.
Over the weekend, J and I cleaned out the office/guest room/storage closet. Then he tore out an intercom and patched it up with drywall, primed the room, and painted the baseboards. Then, we tediously measured and taped off one wall. Thank goodness my measurements I had done earlier in February were accurate!
Then, I took Abs over to my parents to take a nap so Abs and Baby wouldn’t be around all the fumes and noise. Earlier that week, our friends offered to come help J paint the room. Yea for good friends.
And here’s what the other walls look like:
Definitely very pink. Oh well, Abs loves it. So, we just have to replace the outlets and switches and covers, get new carpet, insulate the windows, figure out what I’m gonna do for window treatments (any ideas, when the windows are narrow and don’t touch the ground?), move in her furniture, and it’s all hers.
If I get any comments/emails about the block wall, I’ll try to do a tutorial of how to make it happen . . . but not this week. I’m getting my braces off (!), buying stuff for Abs’s party, making the cake and dip and drinks, etc, and working on Abs’s video of year 1-2. I can’t believe she’ll be TWO on Sunday.
**Oh, and by the way, since our Vday project, here’s what I had to do for J: 1) Write and perform a rap song about J, 2) Watch a Sci-Fi movie of his choosing (YUCK!). Here’s what he drew for me to do: 1) Bring Wifey a blizzard, 2) Play wii with Wifey. Now, who do you think got it rough?!
