Getting Things Done

Thank goodness it’s Friday! It’s been a busy week for us, with late nights, lots of driving around, and plenty of things getting done. This week I’ve made two pillow covers with my  new sewing machine (pictures to follow) and started to (finally!) recover our kitchen chairs. I’m also starting to get antsy about the baby’s room. We don’t plan on doing any major decorating in it, like paint, until after the birth because we don’t know what we’re having! But I did put together this lamp:


Layered shag pendant lamp from Torre & Tagus


I think it will look great over our Ikea Poang chair in the nursery with this cover:


So maybe a black and white nursery is on the horizon? I also picked these up at Ikea:

They’ll look cute on the dresser, full of baby things.

This baby is starting to get very active and strong. A 30 week old baby is only about 3 lbs but it sure is making me tired! All of this GTD work lately is tiring, not to mention taking care of my rambunctious girls, daily household chores, cooking, and this week, a bunch of family it town. I’m starting to learn the power of saying “no” but it is not always as easy as it sounds. I’m also still suffering from some mild cough; not sure if it’s leftover from that nasty bronchitis last month, but it’s a terrible sounding cough and some mornings I wake up with a sore throat. It even wakes me up at night. Funny that, because you’d think kicking baby would, but actually, baby never seems to wake me up. I don’t even get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night or get something to eat… I’d better watch out though – now that I’ve said it, I bet I’ll be up peeing and eating at 2am.

Oh the joys of being a mother…
