Decorating is More Fun Than Spring Cleaning
We covered the holes with a bulletin board in Cecily's room. It ended up being harder than expected- I bought a roll of cork and was planning to use removable adhesive to stick it up there. Yeah, I tried two different kinds and ended up gluing the cork to foam board and then hanging the foam board on the door. She better appreciate it.
I so tired, Mama. *grin* She's doing really well in her bed! I think she's still a little disoriented in the mornings, but she hasn't been getting out in the evenings. She did figure out how to climb into the crib now that the mattress is up higher... yikes... this could be bad news.
We got some shelves hung. I might look for some cute hooks for her to hang her "stuff" on to go underneath.
I love the dresser and bed together.
Saturday evening was potluck date night, so Cecily went to play with the kids and Bob and I went to Applebee's and Hobby Lobby. We found frames for "mise" ballerina and for some flower pictures I printed off. "I inna corner, Mama."
I think she was putting her bears to bed... as you can see, she has plenty of reading material to choose from. Mostly classics, and now arranged alphabetically by author because I'm crazy. There are some kid books in there, including American Girls and the Boxcar Children. The westerns, fantasy, sci-fi, and adventure are all out by the computers, if you were wondering.
This is may be my favorite part of the whole room; white curtains with pink ball fringe and pink glass finials. After blue and white stripes, my next favorite decorating thing is ball fringe. I know, I'm weird.
And lastly, as much as I would love to say that she's praying in this picture, she's watching her shadow and clapping. Because the awful track light that's still in there makes great shadows. Soon it and the fan will be gone and there will be great rejoicing.
Otherwise, I got to sleep in a little bit this morning after a restless night of waking up to all of my limbs sound asleep and tingling, and the absolute worst leg cramp ever- from my toes to my thighs- stretching the other way just made it cramp on the other side. I thought I had escaped that particular annoyance this time. Have I mentioned how much I dislike pregnancy?
Little miss and I also went for a "little ride" in the stroller to pick up my car from the shop. Then we got to take a "little drive" home... with a stop at the Eli's drive-thru because the driver's window is fixed and actually goes up and down now and drive-thru windows aren't a headache anymore. Hooray. *sigh* We need a van. I think I am finally at the point where my beloved car is causing me more annoyance than anything else. It's time to move on.
