Painting, painting, and snow

Not much is happening in pregnant life these days. We picked a midwife. I need to come up with a blog name for her. We weren’t sure it would work out because some department chair was threatening to take away her hospital admitting privileges if she didn’t shut down her homebirth business, but it did work out. Our first appointment with her is tomorrow, and our first ultrasound. I am beyond excited to see Bubbles.

Everything is just trucking along. I still feel nauseous most of the time. Food isn’t super appealing at all. When I am hungry there is one and only one thing that ever sounds even slightly edible and of course it’s not what I brought for lunch. If someone else makes food, it is much more appetizing. Isn’t that so weird? I don’t really get it.

I did manage to eat Thanksgiving dinner. I was worried we’d cook all day and then Bubbles would protest, but I stuffed my thankful little face. Thanksgiving was different. That’s the only word I can think to describe it. We had hoped Tough Cookie would be strong enough to go home by then, but she wasn’t. Jamie and I cooked up a delicious feast and brought it to my dad at the nursing home. We ate and chatted together. Tough Cookie wasn’t really there. She slept a lot. She’s spent most of the last few weeks sleeping and being extremely confused and confusing. She was better when I saw her two days ago, but sometimes she just says things that make no sense, to anyone. She was more herself though, so maybe it was just the drugs and brain swelling and we’ll have her back soon, at least for a while.

You know it’s winter when you get excited to see 35° int he forecast. It turned into winter here this week. It snowed ALL day on Tuesday. Like ALLLL day. It is about 5° outside. I hate winter and it’s even worse because I can’t snowboard this year. I need to get into an exercise routine, but it’s already dark and I’m still at work and did I mention it’s way below freezing outside. I just want summer back. Bubbles is going to be so glad we chose a summer birthday for him/her, best parenting decision ever!

In happy news, Jamie has been painting our dining room. We are putting up molding and wainscoting and it’s going to be stunning. It is kumquat orange on the top half of the wall and will be, I think, ultra pure white on the bottom. I almost went with polar bear just for the name, but Jamie said she wanted super white so I decided to be practical. Hopefully we’ll finish it up this weekend and I’ll come back with an after picture to show it off. We also bought some super awesome curtains on cyber monday which just arrived yesterday. We bought the house and moved in 7 months ago and it’s finally starting to look and feel like home. Next we’ll paint the kitchen and start working on the mural for Bubbles’ room.

Here’s a before and in progress of the dining room. Nevermind you only get an in progress, Jamie must have deleted the before pics off the camera.










Don’t worry folks, the retro green and yellow table won’t be staying in the orange room. We aren’t that colorful. I’ll be back tomorrow with a the first photo of Bubbles (fingers crossed, and keep them crossed that their is just one Bubbles and not two Bubbleses)
