Boxes and Boy
Oh boy have I really been AWOL for a month??? Apparently so. We got moved about a week and a half ago, and yes there are still some boxes I need to unpack, but we are pretty much settled. I think a buffet or hutch in the dining room and a bookshelf with doors or drawers in the living room should take care of the contents of the rest of the boxes. And every day we are thanking God for blessing us with this new place, especially when it only takes 5 minutes to load the dishwasher instead of 2 hours to handwash them!
In other news, Small Boy has decided that "early to rise" is his way of enjoying our new place the most. Which means he does take a nap on a daily basis (Yay!) but I still am not crazy about getting up at 4:30 or 5 am when I don't go to bed till 11pm! This morning I heard him talking at 5, but he didn't start turning on the lights/waking me up till 6, so I am thankful for that. (Insert break for 2nd large mug of coffee here) When hubby often doesn't get home from work till 9:30 or so, it's pretty hard for he and I to institute and "early to bed" rule for us adults, so instead we are sharing the load of getting up early with Boy. And for my part, I am trying to be a little more productive in those early morning hours -- it's always nice to feel a lot was accomplished before 8am! So yep, bring on the coffee!!!
I have also decided on some new crafting plans--I found the cutest quilt pattern with appliqued trains on the border, so I have decided to make that for Boy, then after that am going to start on our new nursery ensemble. No I am not pregnant yet, but I figure it will happen sometime and I found the perfect teddy bear applique pattern that I have been wanting. I have spent probably hours looking through store-bought nursery ensembles and haven't found any really cute gender-neutral ones that aren't rather spendy. To make matters worse, I have had my heart set on a teddy bear theme, and those tend to be rather brown and blah. So anyway, now that I have a good place to put my sewing machine and a big livingroom floor to cut out fabric on, my fingers are just itching to get busy! So I will be sure to keep you updated with pictures of my progress, which also means I will have to make good progress on things if I don't want to keep posting the same pictures over and over :)
