I'm stopping to smell em

I've been working on projects nonstop all weekend.  I'm not sure if crawling around on my knees sanding, priming and painting trim and walls is a good plan for 4 days before due date, but I did it anyway.  We heard that new babies are like milkshakes, bringing all the boys to the yard guests to your house, so we decided to give our guest room a complete overhaul in anticipation.  There was this (ok, the walls were painted in April):
Then this happened over the weekend:
And the real time-suck of my Saturday, this awful water-damaged closet with more stanky carpet and miles of cracked, flesh-colored trim:
The major work is done and I am tired now.  So today, I'm enjoying smelling my roses.
This lovely Memorial Day afternoon, I'm going to be relaxing on the beach and walking in the sand.  Maybe that will kick my labor into gear??  I will share the finished guest room just as soon as I'm done making the curtains, so....in a year.

I can't believe all that activity didn't bring on labor! Enjoy your day relaxing.

^^ I was going to say the same thing! ^^

I was overdue with all of my kids, so I would kickstart labour with an intense gardening/cleaning/anything strenuous session!

Good luck to you!

PS) I love you blog and your humour is right up my alley.

Yep, rest today and smell the roses - labor's gonna be any minute now!!! We're all looking forward to seeing Ashford Douglas - although not as much as you guys, I know! Take care...

Nothing like shaking it up to get the labor kicking. Happy Memorial Day.

Can't wait to see the reveal. Looks like everything is coming together.

If that didn't get the labour going I don't know what will ... take a few days to smell the roses .. you are going to be busy in a couple days!

I hope this is a good sign of (a quick and totally painless, of course) impending labor. Tell him to come out!
