Prest-o! Change-o! (I wish!)
If you know me, and you likely do, you know that I don't do well with projects that take longer than twenty-four hours to complete. I am unable to sleep knowing a project lies unfinished. Alas, I have no choice in the matter. I am not able to lift furniture by myself. (Something I have not taken kindly to!) And I can honestly say I've never steam-cleaned carpet by myself. The schedule I must surrender to is as follows:
Monday-The cable guy will come sometime between 2 and 6 (Gotta love the window they give me! I have nothing better to do than sit on my pregnant butt and wait for them to show up. Hang on a sec... Sitting on my pregnant butt... Nix the negative spin on that. I can handle doing nothing for four hours!)
Tuesday-We con a few of our friends into helping us move our desks downstairs to the newly-connected cable-jack.
Wednesday-The steam-cleaning will commence. We have to go with a pro as Zoe has had her fair share of puppy piddles in what will be Kellie's room. Also, there is some mysterious stain that I can't seem to get up. I lied, I've never tried. But it looks difficult to remove!
Thursday-I'll be painting some cutsie flowers in a border pattern on the wall. We've opted to get only one dresser, as opposed to a set. This room is a good size, so we decided that some color will make Kellie's furniture look less dwarfed.
Friday-We buy the dresser. Move the dresser (With the help of our aforementioned friends). Move the crib. Move the glider.
Friday night into the wee hours of Saturday morning-I will proceed to keep myself up until I've reached that point where everything is funny-I'm so tired. Filling the dresser, making the bed, organizing the toys, and pining after the organizational closet-sorters we've registered for.
Saturday-I'll probably buy the sorters because I can't wait until Kellie's baby shower. I want them now. It's what I do and why our registry continues to shrink rather than grow.
So, what would be a one-night project for non-pregnant Laura has become a week-long ordeal.
I may post again to harass you with more whining.
I'm extremely impatient.
Really. It's true.
