House progress!!!

The stairs are still ripped out to the basement (he could have waited but oh well) so there are still boxes and bags everywhere. However, I dismantled dd3 toddler bed and moved the spare single into her room. I got the crib set up in there too so everyone has a place to sleep if the baby comes early. As for her new room, the primer is on the walls and the bottom half is painted purple. Sunday we'll do the top half pink and Tuesday the chair rail goes up! Wednesday her furniture arrives and I can start moving stuff out of her old room and get the two rooms divided into a Melidie room and a Maya room!

Things feel like they just might be starting to come together!!

Oh and I slept five hours in a row last night. Sad to say but that's the mist I've gotten in two to three months!!

I'll post a before puc for you all of her new room. It's pretty shocking how much work I've done!!

I'd been meaning to ask how you were sleeping. Were you able to work something out with your Doc? I'm glad you got five hours, hope that number continues to increase!

And gratz on the home improvements progress!

The pills made the baby sleep too much which got me all nervous and unfortunately didn't really help me either. So, I'm just suffering through it. I'll be able to sleep in two weeks but of course won't have the time to do it. Such is life!

I know, it's crazy!!!

Stairs are done etc for the final coat of varnish. Dh said I can start moving things down there while he works on dd room. I can't do much as I get winded, but ten boxes a day will make a huge difference in decluttering the stuff strewn everywhere.

Looks like the baby will have a home to come back to and not a horror house!
