the work is stacking up...

I have an unprecedented amount of projects that are started but that have stalled...

Remember that piano I promised was almost ready back in May?
Yeah, still needing to finish this last panel.


I received a beautiful buffet from friends that had some water damage that I almost got repaired...and then it's been waiting for me for...well a couple months.


Most uncharacteristically, I started painting downstairs walls when my family was first here at the end of June...


...and just look at where they are at.
People, this is stripe of cut in paint, can I tell you that something like this has never (in my memory) existed in my home for more than 24 hours?
Insane.


And while laundry is certainly not my favorite, it surely has been piling to never-before-seen-in-my-residence heights before I can convince myself to tackle it.



And while part of it has been the busy travel schedule we've been keeping...
...
...
...

part of it is because of this:



we're so happy that I get the opportunity to be so exhausted. :)

When I got to the laundry part, I thought, "Oh, she's got to be pregnant." I scrolled down a little further, and sure enough! So happy for you two!!!

Before you know it, you will be refinishing a crib set... Actually, I just looked closer at your picture and it looks like you are due at the end of February! SWEET!

Lori said...

Hurray! Congratulations! I had a feeling this announcement was coming. Can't wait to hear more!

Carmen said...

Woops, I'm not purposely leaving anyone in the dark. I suppose I need to do a whole details post, but for now I am 12 weeks along, official due date of Feb. 20th (I'm such a good daughter, making my mom come to Michigan in Feb, gross). What else....I feel good. I haven't thrown up, for which I am so so very thankful. Curt's really cute about the whole thing. And it was so crazy to see the baby move around so actively...totally a little person in there. Made me feel actually pregnant instead of just off.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! and um, I am perplexed, because at 12 weeks my baby only looked like a bean. maybe I was only 10 weeks when they checked, I don't know, but I am jealous you can actually see a baby in that thing! soooooo happy for you guys!
