what is that room in my house?

Apparently it is the start of a nursery. My family staged a bit of an intervention last week basically telling me to get my head out of the sand and start getting ready for this kid to come. I was told that the baby is going to show up whether I have things ready or not so wouldn’t it be better to get ready? So we had a painting party with my brother and his wife. The room is a nice light green. It doesn’t scream nursery thankfully since we’re hoping to move in a few years. New carpets in the whole house are getting installed next week (our house is 32 yrs old and still has the original carpets, thankfully not shag but still pretty nasty) and the…gulp…crib and dresser get delivered the weekend of the 26th. Holy shit.

Since we had handy, free labor available, we also painted our bedroom. We have been wanting to paint in there since we moved in. The previous owners were big fans of two-toning things so it was a urine yellow bedroom with one wall looking like someone who is extremely dehydrated. It looks SOOOOO much better now. Just need to do some touch-ups tomorrow (only problem with free labor is that you have to give them beer and the quality of work tends to go down as things progress) and I can’t wait to put it all back together.

So that’s my exciting weekend. Have to work for a bit tomorrow, but it’s my private consult work so at least I get paid for it. Otherwise only 3 more weeks of summer session left…and they have to go better than this week did….there really isn’t anyway for them to go worse.

oh….and my only other news, I have become addicted to F.lair on f.acebook..someone needs to stage an intervention for that!

    Matt staged the opposite kind of intervention and took “that room” as an office. I had been using it as storage. He says that he plans to give it back eventually.

    Congrats on having such a productive weekend. This must be a paint themed weekend or something because I actually started thinking about that for our house as well. Free labor is awesome!

    Glad that you got some house stuff done over the weekend. The painting and all will be a nice change. I laughed a bit about your free labor and the beer comment. How true that is. Hope your week goes well.

    It really is amazing how many of us got cracking on our “that rooms” recently. I can’t wait to see pictures!I am a big Facebook junkie but am unfamiliar with Flair. I suspect this moment may mark the end of my afternoon 🙂
