Yesterday we got all new carpet upstairs and in the baby’s room downstairs. It feels like a new house now that construction is finally done. I smiled the whole time I vacuumed up the carpet remains. Above is a peak into our baby’s room with new carpet, new lighting, an extended closet to fit the slanted stairs ceiling, and a new paint job thanks to yours truly (don’t worry, it was low VOC paint). It makes me so happy to finally be at the point where all I need to do is organize organize organize to get ready for the baby. Yeah for nesting! Yeah for the end of dust and clutter! In preparation for organization and general third trimester pregnancy maneuvering, I did some measurements. I am an inch wider front to back than I am side to side which is invaluable in calculating how I will go about squeezing my largeness around various objects and people I encounter day to day. It will be tough to fight the urge to turn sideways moving about. Last night we moved Jared’s computer stuff out of the dining room and into the office upstairs (which I also painted last week), and then I went to bed all ready to start fresh today with my organization scheme but woke up with a sore throat and a cold. I spent most of the day today resting and dreaming of all the things I’m going to organize and maneuver around straight on instead of sideways…. soon.
