*** I just posted this in the NS Board and thought to myself, “Self, that’s a good blog!” Soooo here we are…***
Holy Cow! Where is the time going? Today starts week 31 for me and I can’t believe it is here already! 63 days until my anticipated due-date! Good grief!
My house looks like a typhoon went through it. We hired a painter to come in and take care of papering and painting the two bedrooms for us. Mike and I don’t mind tackling any home renovation job, but we know enough NOT to tackle painting! It just would not be a pretty site, so it’s well worth my sanity at this point and time to have someone come in and do it for us. Plus, he’d take a whole lot less time than we would. I can’t wait until it’s done to be able to post some pictures! Everything from the two bedrooms has more or less been dumped in my living room, so we are living around a bunch of beds, boxes and bags at the moment. Oh well, soon enough it will all be back to normal…I hope!
Sunday night is my Baby Shower. At first I didn’t “want” to have one, even though I really do “need” to have one. I hate being the center of attention, and I’m sorry but showers drive me up a wall. It’s just not my cup of tea. However, I had no say in this. A shower was planned by my sister and my mother. One thing led to another and we now have about 90 people invited. I know that’s a lot, but you have to understand the size of our families. It would be absolutely impossible not to have that many invited. It’s almost like if you invite “this” one then “these” 10 have to be invited as well. In my community this will be the highlight of the winter (good grief! )
Anyway, I’ve been getting a wee little bit excited this week. Some of the girls at work have taken it upon themselves to provide and do the decorating, which I thought was so awesome! Everyone is really looking forward to it and they are helping to get me “in the mood” to have potentially 90 people rubbing at my belly (ugh!)
It will be good when this is all said and done because then I’ll be able to see exactly where we stand and what else we’ll need for Marcus. I can’t wait to have the nursery done and waiting! Hopefully it won’t be too much longer and the weather will break. I can’t wait for spring! It’ll be so different for me having an April baby. Matthew was an October baby, which made for a long winter being couped up in the house with a new born.
I suspect a great summer is just around the corner!
Ok, enough of my novel, but now you’re up-to-date!
Until next time…
