House Update


Quick update on the house. First, we finished painting the Twinkies' room (with low VOC paint, it's supposed to be healthier) and also got a lot of stuff handed down from one of my bosses, Lindsey. Lindsey's kids are now 4 and 6, so she's done with baby stuff and gave us a pack-and-play, a baby bjorn, a bouncy chair and a ton of other stuff.

As I mentioned before, we need two of pretty much everything, so these kind souls like Lindsey, Scott and Molly, Todd and Brenda and everybody else that has handed stuff down have been a real lifesaver. Now we're just waiting for the cribs and dresser to arrive.

And finally, Sandy filled the yawning hole in our life that was a missing kitchen curtain; her handmade handiwork is to the right. As you can see she is very talented. If I can talk her into it, she'll do a blog post about all of the baby things she has been knitting.

Is this the division of labor? Doug paints, and moves furniture, and conducts large scale house repairs, and Sandy knits? Sounds about right. It is a nice curtain, though -- Brian.

Now, wait a minute--I used to do all that, before I started GESTATING, which is very difficult to do, let me tell you!

Great job on the drape. I like the yellow color in the twins room.
