The pregnancy books talk about how I might expect to be forgetful and absentminded. I have noticed that mid-conversation or mid-sentence I sometimes forget what I am going to say. But, today tops the cake - I completely forgot my purse at home (well, at least I hope it is at home...) and I didn't realize it until 45 minutes later when I arrived at work. Now I am perplexed as to how I managed to forget it when I usually set in right next to my "work bag" and grab both as I head out the door. I did remember my work bag and lunch bag and a bag of something to return... I was in my normal "hurry," but nothing special. So, I hope I don't get pulled over and I am glad that I have a half of a tank of gas. I think I might have to go outside and look in my car again...just in case. My purse is much to big to "fall" between the passenger door and seat, but I might get through the day easier knowing it is not sitting out there. I drove here without a phone, but it bothers me knowing that I have to drive home without my phone.
What else to say...Jason finished the floor in our daughter's room! My Mom mentioned she bought "my daughter" some clothes - this totally threw me for a loop! I call her "my baby" or "our girl," but it seems weird to think we have a "daughter" and a "daughter's room!" Jason and I painted it a pretty pretty pink on Saturday and he busted all holiday weekend to re-do the closet (yes - two rows for clothes!) and lay the floor. After replacing the trim and giving it a nice cleaning, we can assemble the crib! Yay! We bought the crib used (oh yes, Craig's List) about two weeks ago and are excited to assemble it. We also found a changing table - it doesn't quite match, but it will work. Now, what will probably be the hard part, finding a dresser and possibly a book shelf. It would be nice if we could find some pieces that seem to somewhat go together. Ah, what kid has a perfectly matching bedroom set!?! Jason did a great job - it looks great already in there - so fresh and new!
I also purchased some fabric and am going to attempt to sew some curtains and a crib skirt. The fabric is a sheer, so I am scared of it... My Mom and that fam are coming over the 4th of July, so she will have to help me!
I think that is all for now! Maybe we will post some preliminary "nursery" pictures... I am excited to share, but part of me wants to wait to post until it is totally ready!
