Nick My Hero

Last week was a long one, I travelled to Tampa, Chicago and Denver in 3 days time. All flights were either delayed or cancelled and 1 of 2 hotels were overbooked so there were issues...then, my car did not start when I got home. Needless to say I tried to stay calm and collected, but lost it when I heard the slight click of the car.

Now, I was late for a haircut appointment, very important, so that made this all the more difficult and made my already idiot brain completely irrational. Instead of trying to find the parking people to help me, I call Nick...as if he's going to be able to help me from 30 miles away while at work. I end up cabbing to my haircut...suitcase and all, and then waste both of our time as we drive back out to the airport to rescue my car.

I am feeling much better after the haircut, even laughing about the whole freaking scenario (which, to my own credit, I laughed off every cancelled flight and hotel room...it wasn't until the car thing that I really lost it). Nick informed me he had a surprise for me when I got home...so I naturally thought he had bought another shirt or just a little something for the baby while I was gone. No. He went WAY OVERBOARD...he had stayed up until 3am Monday and Tuesday nights clearing out the office and painting it for the baby. OMG, I lost it...in a much happier way.

It looks amazing and I feel so much better about the house scenario, about being somewhat ready and prepared, just about it all. He even put the pack 'n play together and founds a cute table and deocrations to give the room the real "feel". He is my true hero.

Construction Drama

Most of you are aware that we've been working to re-model our house. Well, I finally received the most expensive pieces of paper I have ever purchased...the blue prints. Yes, we made it to that stage, wahoo. The bad news is that we likely have 4-6 weeks...or probably more of bank paperwork and permitting. So...the long and short, we are going to postpone a bit until after baby is born.

Yeah, decision made. Crap...I wasn't counting on having to put a nursery together myself, so there literally is NO WHERE for baby to sleep right now. His/her room is a repository for boxes and crap at this time, ha. We ordered the crib and rocker, but it's 50/50 if they make it in time. Poor baby, haaa, it's just too comical. Hopefully we'll have time to get the room ready in July as June is already gone with travel and work for us...pathetic.

Am I a bit too laid back here, I really have no idea what is coming my way, but I figure I can either stress out and freak out or I can just do what I can and realize it will all work out in the end. We are also housing 3 dogs this weekend, so we have a zoo going on...it's difficult to pet and give attention to 3 dogs at once, I suggest you try it. I hope baby is a dog lover or we're in big trouble :)

Ah, the joys...
