I wish I could say the nearly two months since my last post have been so filled with progress around the house that I just haven’t had time to blog about it. Instead I’ve been busy with job hunting, celebrating the holidays, burying my grandfather, and preparing for the birth of our second child. Sometimes life interrupts even the best plans– and my plans around the house weren’t all that great to start with.
Ms. Bungalow and I are delighted that our new baby arrives tomorrow via a c-section scheduled for 2:00 in the afternoon. In these last hours before the birth, I wanted to take the opportunity to put a post up before I have a newborn dictating my schedule and stealing my sleep.
My progress on the baby’s future nursery/bedroom has made only glacial progress in recent weeks. At this rate, the room will be ready by the time the new baby to starts kindergarten. We have been planning all along to use the sitting room of our master suite for the baby’s nursery for the first few months after he arrives, so the unfinished bedroom isn’t a problem… yet. Since my last report, I got a bit of awkward demolition work done on the ceiling with help from my Dad, but there is still a hefty bit of demo left to do.
I suppose it’s only fitting that my progress around the house has come in baby steps. I expect that pattern to continue for several months more. In the meantime, here’s a couple more highlights from the past two months with a update on the baby to follow in a couple days:
Even though your resolutions are probably mostly broken by now, best wishes to all in the New Year. And now I’m off to enjoy my last good night’s sleep of 2007.
