Perhaps some of you know that we have been stuck in a rut for a few weeks now. Our nursery has been empty, windows waiting to be sanded and painted. Well, Geron has been working his you know where off trying to sand those windows. Yes, there were some big lapses in between sanding, but yesterday we both finally tackled the chore together and HE did a good job on them.

This morning, when we left for work, Geron mentioned he might take half a day off from work this week to paint the windows. I mentioned Friday would be good because I didn't have to work and could help get it done. He agreed that sounded like a good idea. Of course, we have a really busy weekend ahead with a baby shower, memorial service, prenatal classes and getting
ready for Assembly, so I don't know what I was thinking.

So, the day went on. This afternoon Geron called to tell me that he was busy on a project and was sending his dad to come pick me up from work. I asked "Did you paint?" and he answered, "yes". So, Preston showed up at work and we headed home. On the way I asked "What are you doing on this side of town?" (They live about 20 minutes away from us.) "Oh, we just had a bite to eat and I've been hanging out." was his reply. When I got home, I walked in the house and went back to see how the painting went. As I opened the door, I saw that Geron had done WAY MORE than paint today. HE PUT UP OUR BABY FURNITURE!!!!!!!!!! MY HUSBAND ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!! He and his dad had been busy today doing that while I was working and clueless. I AM SO EXCITED THAT I CAN FINALLY START PUTTING THINGS OUT IN THE NURSERY!!!!!! I'm sorry I'm yell-typing, but I just can't help myself. This has been a very good surprise. We'll post pictures when we get the room together, or you all can just wait and see it when you come to visit baby!

That was so sweet of them to put that room together for you. I know it's been worrying you for a while. We love you, and we're happy that you're closer to being ready for your baby.

I saw the pictures on Geron's other blog. It looks really pretty! Did you say that was a king size quilt on that queen size bed? It looks good! What's the green thing leaning against the changing table?

Sorry. I see now that they were in the flicker section, and not a post. Duh. But it's still pretty!!
