Today is my due date. Thank you baby for not messing up the loan approval or the closing. Thanks for letting us get the movers situated and the crib delivered. Now, if you would kindly remove yourself from my body, we have this whole weird world out here for you to explore. Or, you know, sleep on. Point is, it’s so much roomier out here and your momma will be so much happier.
In other “has not happened yet” news…the carpet install date has not yet been set. Getting a little frustrated about that, but too pregnant to invest the energy in tracking down the company to get it on the calendar. As such, the cleaning has not been scheduled yet. We figured we’d let the guys get in and make a mess with carpet fibers, footprints, and whatever else they manage to do before we had the cleaning “crew” come in and wipe down the walls etc. We also have not totally moved out of the townhouse. We have all the boxes and all the essentials, but have left things like empty flower pots and soil, beach and camping equipment, cleaning supplies, and the tools in the toolbox (not to be confused with the basket of tools we have already moved). Essentially all the stuff from the outdoor closet.
We did knock out a pretty significant portion of the unpacking this weekend. But now we just have stuff on surfaces with no rhyme or reason. We are slowly chinking away at living in our new place and finding out what that means in terms of where we want things to be, like Q-tips and bread and the coffee maker. It’s all still a little hap-hazard. And I am happy to report that we are mostly in agreement on how the house flows, but there is totally room for adjustment. I’m just ready for it all to be off the counters and floors and put somewhere, anywhere.
OK – I guess I’m gonna try to focus on work. Or pretending to work. Send thoughts of hashtag NOT pregnant my way! BABY!
