Okay, so I'm being melodramatic. Hey, it's probably the last month of pregnancy hormones kicking in.
It's been a TOUGH week for me. Traveling to SC last week for work was probably a mistake...I came back into town exhausted to the point of sickness and freaking about how much needed to be done - at home and at work. Sleep is difficult at this point as many of you probably remember. To top off the madness, I learned that the gorgeous, expensive crib that had been given to us by a family member was recalled, and the darn thing was only 6 years old! DH was right again; he'd told me 3 or 4 weeks ago to go order a new crib since he'd read a report about the massive recalls of cribs. Would I listen? Of course not.
So here we were yesterday morning with a messy/dirty/turned upside down house, a completely unless crib setting in pieces in the middle of the floor, and 100 degree heat.
Well, the fortunes finally turned. We went to Babies 'R Us last night. Not only was the crib we liked on sale, the store happened to have one IN STOCK! We're picking it up on Wednesday when the nursery bookshelves are completed.
This morning, my friend/cleaning expert drove into town (from my hometown) to clean and help organize my house - praise the Lord! Then this afternoon I decided to stop by a local baby furniture store to look at chests - and there it was, the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in! It's the Best Chair glider/rocker/recliner in the Tryp pattern. Oh, I can't even explain other than to say it was like sitting on a cloud of whipped butter, and it reclines into a nearly horizontal position so I can sleep in it. Honestly, I didn't want to get up. So I told my parents about it, and they said, "If you want it that badly, we'll pay half." So I'm getting my perfect chair which will be delivered in 4 weeks! The best part is that it doesn't look like a traditional glider; I'll actually be able to use it in a family room or office. I'm going to try to sell my uncomfortable leather recliner on Craigslist; it's almost like new. I have a Shermag glider that was given to be years ago, but it doesn't recline, and my friend swears I'll need a recliner capable of being slept in.
Hope everyone has an enjoyable and festive July 4th holiday. The fireworks have already begun much to the chagrin of our high strung Shih Tzu.
