Hi. I’m still around, I promise. I’ve just been busy with boring stuff that doesn’t really give me much to blog about.
For example, fighting off a cold. Kinda boring. It involves me this past weekend, forcing myself to stay on the couch and rest my pregnant butt rather than do all of the things on my to-do list that I had planned on doing around the house. As much as it drove me crazy, I knew it was best. Better to be just a few days behind than a whole week or more, right? Luckily Dan kept me company on the couch and we spent 2 days doing pretty much nothing. Except I did pay bills. How thrilling!
And also: work. So busy. I feel like I’m entering the homestretch now for what I need to finish before Baby comes, but because of that I feel stressed and crazy. I launched 2 sites last week (yay) and there are 8 more to go. EIGHT MORE. In 2 or so months. Some are almost finished, but a few others are just in design stages (but close to a decision, I think) I just really don’t want to have to leave any of my clients hanging out there unfinished, because that will just make me feel guilty in May that I’m not coming back earlier. I’m giving myself at least 2 months before I officially start working again (because hey, if I was working a ‘real’ job, I’d have 8 weeks or more for leave!) and having everything DONE will help me feel less bad about that!
Other random things I’ve been up to:
Continuing Project: Kitchen Reorganization 2007. I started this last week with the installation of my lovely new cabinet drawer thingies. Then last night I got up the energy to tackle our walk-in pantry (which I love love love) Sadly, the thing was a disaster and full of so many things we haven’t used in over a year. So while the pantry is nice and organized now, my dining room table is covered in stuff I have to decide what to do with. Like, should we keep the George Foreman? (great when we had our apartment, not really necessary now that we’re in a house with a deck and real outdoor grill) And what about the bunny cookie jar? (cute, but not really my style)
And tomorrow we are going to pick up the baby’s crib! We won’t be putting it together for a while (not until we have space in the room after it’s painted and ready to go) but at least we’ll have it. It’s gorgeous, yes? It also converts into a toddler bed and a full-size bed. Which is how we rationalized the Gave Me a Heart Attack price tag.
Dan just informed me that it looks like someone needs to do some sit ups (and pointed to my belly) On that note, I must go kick some Mean Husband ass.
