We did it! We only painted one coat yesterday, but decided we liked it so
much that we're probably going to leave it that way. I didn't pass out from
the paint and I didn't wear a mask. But last night I was WORN OUT as was
Geron who pulled double duty painting and then setting the church sanctuary
back up after a wedding. We still have the trim work to cover, but Geron
and Pastor will do that when I'm out of the house. I AM SO EXCITED!!!!

Last night we went to Target and started looking at bedding for the queen
size bed and window treatments. Its really a lot of fun to redecorate.
(Especially when its two of my most favorite colors--pink and green!)

Those of you who I asked to volunteer to help, just joking of course. I
know you would if you were close. You are all wonderful friends who we know
we can count on when the going gets rough. Come see us when Baby Girl gets
here, okay?

i think you should get the sheets the tabors got me, the pink and green striped ones. and i think you should get the curtains we picked (but didn't get, but i probably wouldn't buy people curtains for their wedding, either)--they're white eyelet. I love eyelet.

we painted our babe's room yesterday. yes, yesterday. should've done it before he was born, as that would have been waaaaaaay more convenient, but oh well. it looks great now and our house isn't a terrible disaster.

it will be when we paint the living room, though :)

Painting is such fun! I can't wait until I get a house that's my own so I can paint it. Don't see much point in painting an apartment/townhouse/rental that isn't mine, as you spend all the money and by the time you get done, your lease is up and they jack the rent up.

Love you all!

i miss reading geron's thoughts about becoming a daddy, etc. nag nag nag

Jenn-Jenn, the Mother Hen said...

I agree with Ann. If and when Geron gets time to blog, we'd love to read his thoughts!

Lydia, oh Lydia. Say where are you Lydia? Lydia the pregnant lady!

When she's writing to her site, then we know that she's all right.

Lydia, oh Lydia. Say where are you Lydia? Lydia the queen of sweetness!

On her blog are her tales of the miracle of life. And funny tales of her duties as wife. And above all we wish her no strife...

Where, oh where, are you Lydia?

Okay, I couldn't resist the urge to use the hated song to spoof. I have a feeling this comment will be deleted by Lydia and Geron first thing in the morning. Just know that we all love you and want to know how the childbirth class went!
