On My Way to Slumber

Posted by on Mar 11, 2008 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

My dear friend Ronke is coming on Friday and we are using that day as a hard target for putting our house in order (no, we are not dead but you know what I mean).   The paint has been applied to the main level (with a couple of areas of touch up needed [because nothing says painting like touching up!]) and the family room is totally done. 

We just started in on the bedrooms upstairs tonight and the color we chose for Gideon’s room looks quite a bit like one of his old pre-real food diapers.  I suppose I have a strong affinity to those days.  I was getting about the same amount of sleep that I’ve had over the past four days back then.  Somehow these late nights haven’t made me all crazy-sleep deprived neurotic like those first few months post baby.  I’ll give a shout out to the hormonal withdrawals for all that instead. 

I’ve been going non-stop for four days and had been doing really well (cheesy biscuits for Sunday school, watching my friend’s adorable girls, painting for fifteen hours a day…).  The other day Jud asked if I was doing meth because that is the only explanation for all this energy and concentration.  I suppose the thought of Kay coming just has me incredibly excited. 

Tonight when I started seeing odd flashes of light while trying to edge out a nice shade of blue in the guest room, I realized that I am still human and not hopped on any illicit drugs, so I am home now and on my way to bed.
