Things we are doing (on top of preparing a nursery) that may seem crazy:
-Redoing our bedroom. It’s been neglected for so long. Our bed is *falling apart*, partly from it being old and taken apart and put back together too many times, partly because it’s got wicker on it and we have a cat. Enough said. I asked Dave that for my birthday present this year (which is two weeks before my due date) I wanted our bedroom to be pleasant. Dave is building a bed frame that can have storage under it. We are also painting (hallelujah! No more slightly pink/white walls!) and I got some new bedding. So. Happy.
- Redoing the floor in our kitchen/mudroom. The mudroom (which is the main entrance) is carpeted. CARPETED. It get’s SO dirty, and it drives me batty. The lino in the kitchen is about 100 years old and is so disgusting. This was an idea I had a few weeks ago, and then we decided that we didn’t want to push the idea too much with our landlady and maybe wait till next year. Well just yesterday she came up to Dave and said that she wanted to have the floors redone! Huzzah!
- Recording an album with our jazz band. We are doing a large concert at Christmas time and really want something to sell.
On top of all this, my photography has suddenly gotten busy and we still have some more gigs with the jazz band.
Oh, and I’m growing a baby. In case you forgot.
