Today is the day I’ve been dreading all summer. Blake going back to school. I have to admit, I’ve been utterly spoiled this entire summer. Besides B’s week-long trip to Jamaica for a mission trip, we have spent every.day.together.
But this morning, he woke up at 6:30 to start his first day of his second year of med school. People have asked, “What are you going to do now that he’s not home all day?” Well, I can assure you I won’t be bored.
I have THIS to tackle:
And what is THAT, you might ask??
Oh, just the baby’s nursery.
Yep. Somewhere in there.
This used to be our spare bedroom/office/craft room. But now, there’s a much more important use for it. And all the
crap stuff you see is a “collection” of baby items. [With several wedding things thrown in there.] We’ve been exceedingly fortunate to have such wonderful people in our lives. People who want to help us and give us lots of baby things. My sister-in-law has been absolutely amazing. Her mother’s group was kind enough to donate tons and tons of baby stuff to us. From maternity clothes, to baby clothes, to a changing table and matching rocker, to toys and books. It’s awesome.
BUT... now... I have to put it someplace where it actually looks like it’s been placed by a human being and not a tornado.
Since we’re renting for another year before we move back home for B to do his rotations, we aren’t able to paint the walls (kind of a bummer, but it’s okay), and the twin bed is going to stay in here since the house came furnished. It really works out nice this way because if B has a major test the next day, and Little Miss is
screaming having a tough night, I can take a little hiatus to the nursery to take care of her while B gets a well rested night’s sleep for his test.
The picture above is bittersweet. I’m not looking forward to getting in there and tackling the project because 1. The “nesting” bug hasn’t quite bit me yet and, 2. I
hate dislike very much to clean things out. But, on the flipside, I can’t wait to see how it will all turn out. I’m very excited to hang her wall decorations and organize her itty-bitty clothes.
Wish me luck! =)
