It’s been a while since I popped in to share a project or an update, so I thought it was about (dang) time.
We’ve started some big ones that are taking multiple weekends to complete, so they’re not quite done.
First, Nick’s dad helped him put up drywall in our garage (to cover the new insulation, which should keep our upstairs bedrooms a little more climate controlled). They learned a drywall lift is super duper helpful for ceilings, and perhaps even a necessity. It was a great tool!
And while they were doing that, Nick’s mom helped me get started painting the baby’s room, even with a bunch of furniture still in there (I’ve tried to sell the big desk AND our coffee table on Craigslist and no one is interested at all! It must not be the season for Craigslist.)
This past weekend, Nick again worked on the drywall (by himself this time), and he made great progress!
It’ll probably get done this coming weekend.
We also invested in a new garage organizer system which is partially installed. It’s called the Rubbermaid Fasttrack, and it’s very cool. Not exactly the old system of 2x4s that we had before (and not as inexpensive) but very useful for getting maximum storage in a small garage.
And I finished with the white paint in the baby’s room….and opened up the teal! Wheeeee!!!! It’s so bright and vivid and fun! I love it! And even more fun is the name of it: “Mermaid Water Dance.” (You can’t deny that is a super cute paint color name!)
Crown molding will be going up eventually, and a chair rail will be on three walls which will divide the upper white section from the lower soon-to-be teal section on those walls.
Meanwhile, we’re purging stuff on eBay and Craigslist and starting to think about a crib once that big desk is out of the baby’s room.
And of course, work for me has been busier than it’s been in…probably a year? and we’re just getting over a month of dealing with/stressing about a seriously sick cat. So….in lieu of those….and with the understanding that this seriously poor quality (have I mentioned we’re shopping for a new camera?) and majorly unflattering picture was taken after a 13 hour day at work…
Here’s the 25 week bump!
