We are knee deep into renovation projects right now. We've started packing up the entire house and putting everything in to storage while we prepare for the flooring to be installed. This week we will begin making the cutout for the patio door which will be installed on Monday and the existing carpet and tile is slowly being torn out room by room as we shift furniture around and make adjustments to our living situation.
The process is stressful and only made worse by the fact that being 7 months pregnant, I can't lift anything heavy, so I've been packing boxes and then kind of shuffling them across the floor with my foot after they are filled - comical for those around me I'm sure. I also get out of breath easily and have to take frequent breaks, plus the up and down movements are killing my lower back. On the plus side, this is fulfilling some major nesting tendencies that have occurred as of late. Honestly though, I'm really looking forward to the whole thing being over in a few weeks so I can start preparing the nursery. Once we return from our trip my main focus will be getting the baby's room ready. I have a lot of ideas floating around in my head and can't wait to share them with you.
