Things are getting done around here.
It’s slow, and not very organized, but it’s still getting done.
We’ve been cleaning and sorting and putting away. Ronan has been in his “new” bedroom since Monday, and hasn’t had trouble adjusting at all. Quite the contrary, (*knock on wood*) he’s been sleeping better since we moved him. We’ve moved the lion’s share of his toys from the living room into his bedroom, and he’s incredibly excited to be in there, playing, and loves to have us go in and play WITH him. We’ve left the queen size bed that was in there on the floor (no frame) so that he can crawl in and out of it, on it and around it. He seems to really enjoy it, and it’s more exposure to a ‘real’ bed for the eventual switch.
I feel a little guilty that we haven’t actually done anything to his room as far as painting or decorations go, but I know he doesn’t care.
In tiny little increments, I’ve gotten the baby girl’s room started. First it was washing the walls, then it was purchasing painting supplies. Took me three days to tape off the areas that I want to paint, and I FINALLY got around to painting today. The first coat of primer. It took me less than an hour, and I can’t wait to lay the color over it. I’ll do one more coat of primer tonight, and then start working on color tomorrow. I haven’t been taking a whole lot of pictures along the way, but I’ll be taking pictures when I’m finished.
I’ve gone through all of Ronan’s clothes, and weeded out everything that is too small. Those clothes are slowly making their way into boxes, and those boxes are being labelled and put into his closet. We aren’t ready to let them go yet, as we’re not entirely sure we’re finished having children yet!
Next on the list is to get BG’s clothes washed and hung/folded where they will be used. Then, we need a final CLEAN of our house. My only “MUST HAVE DONE” before the baby comes that is left is to have the carpets cleaned, and I can call and schedule that at any time.
So… things are really getting done! It’s about time too, because I’m 37 weeks tomorrow. She could conceivably come at ANY TIME, so the sooner we finish this stuff up, the better.
Also? It has been nice to have this surge of energy to get things done, but when I’m finished with any given task that I set my mind to – I’m EXHAUSTED. That being said, I’m going for a nap.
