Ahhhh, home sweet home at last! Long day on the road today.
Co, I didn't go crazy on Christmas decorating by any means, but I hate clutter so I'm ready to put everything away too. I will probably leave it up until next weekend though, as we haven't celebrated with my parents yet and I kind of want to just relax and enjoy this next few days off with DH and DS before going back to work on the 2nd. Sounds like you had a lovely, quiet Christmas.
Katie, you'll have to post pics of your playroom when it's done! Sounds like a great project. How did the carpet install go? I think our playroom will be a January project. I need to take everything out, want to paint, put new shelving in the closet in that room, then set it up as a play room. I think DS won't use it a ton just yet, he like sot be close to mama, but I know it'll get lots of use in the years to come. The room isn't big, but it's a descent size and it's got a big window so its nice and bright even though it's in the basement. It'll even be great to have set up when the new bub arrives so that DS can play in the basement and be as loud as he wants and not wake a sleeping baby.
Bailey, I am a hopeless, but hopeful gardener. Sounds like you have a real green thumb. Last year I tried container gardenign and had some success with tomatoes and celery. My brocolli was all stalk, and the container I used for the carrots wasn't deep enough. Oh, and my radishes drowned. Ah well, better luck next summer I guess!! The crafting stuff sounds fun and sounds like it'll keep you busy. I just started doing some needle felting and it's a bit addictive. I like being able to stab away while I am watching TV with DH and that there is no pattern, or right or wrong, just creating. I've made some fruit, a sheep, and a horse so far. But I do like sewing and have some projects in mind for before baby comes as well. I guess I better get on those, hey? Time is passing so quickly!!
Steph, safe travels home!
