Life’s Chaotic? Sleep with the Sheep!

Because sometimes I have to look around at the chaos and just laugh. PS ~ We confirmed our big news the very day the basement crew arrived. Yes, really.  Laugh with me? (Because seriously, now. What else is there?!)

We’re not just doing the basement, folks. In true “If you Give a Mouse a Cookie” fashion, we’re doing the kitchen, too!  Who needs sleep?! Well, I do, that’s who! At the end of every long, loud, making-tacos-in-the-unfinished-basement-laundry-room day, I’m thankful for:

  1. A hot bath.
  2. My essential oils (in the bath, diffused, massaged, or sprayed)
  3. My Serta. I asked back in May if a quality mattress is worth it. I can tell you today that it is. 😉

More to come on the house projects! And the pregnancy! And maybe even the sleep! (I love sleep…)

  1. well that’s what I get for not clicking through the link the first time. I missed your big news. Congrats!!!

  2. I obviously missed the underlying message in your previous post – congrats!!! Sometimes the best way to get things done is to just rip off the bandaid and do it all at once! 🙂

  3. Okay, Mama, how about a bump picture?

  4. Congrats!

  5. When you sent the first email–I wondered what it was really all about. Just didn’t get it. But now that I do–congratulations. How exciting (for everything). And of course it all has to happen at the same time; how could things possibly only come one at a time when they are this momentous! Basement, bathroom, baby!!! At least you are staying with the B’s. Well … until kitchen. Need a new name for that room to keep in step. Enjoy the process along the way. Rejoicing with you.

  6. I was wondering if you were expecting when you got sick! I am beyond excited for you!!! Congratulations!!!!!
