Monday Musings on a Tuesday

**Home Ownership sometimes is a bitch. As you know, Curt and I are finishing our basement. Well, Curt is finishing our basement…I just sit there and look pretty. Anyways, we were making GREAT progress….we could almost smell the new furniture and new TV down there…and then it rained….Now we have NEVER had problems in our basement before with rain. On Sunday we found out that our window down there wasn’t sealed right and we didn’t have a plastic covering so rain got in through the window, down our finished walls to the cement. ALL OVER! We realized it was the window AFTER taking some chunks out of the wall just to make sure it wasn’t the foundation. So what did we learn? 1. We are always learning when it comes to home ownership. 2. We should have Googled before taking out the wall 3. To always have proper covering over your window 4. Laugh it off, it could have been worse. Yes it’s a set back but we didn’t have carpet down yet, it isn’t a foundation issue and the dry wall isn’t ruined…silver lining.

**So we have been doing A LOT of reading….reading on pregnancy, reading on once the baby is here etc. We have several classes we will be taking advantage of etc. I hope we don’t get information overload. But I am SOAKING up everything we read.

**One thing I’ve read about and heard about is pregnancy brain. People, it is a REAL thing! I feel like I’m in a fog, I can barely remember anything. I’m usually so organized and I feel like I’m all over the place. My poor staff, my poor husband etc. At least I have a valid excuse right? πŸ™‚

**Speaking of my husband, I have to give a shout out to him! He has been AMAZING the first half of pregnancy and I know he will be just as amazing the last 20 weeks and be a great dad. I know I’m not the nicest human in the world right now, if you can even call me a human some days….BUT he has been so supportive and willing to help out. Ladies, make sure you have a good guy in your life, I am so lucky.

**When I got home from work today there was a big box in my driveway….our crib arrived! What a nice surprise! I can’t wait for Curt to get home to move it inside. He doesn’t know yet, but I want him to put it together tonight. πŸ™‚ even though we still have the guest bed in the nursery I’m sure we can make room.

**I am hungry all the time!

**It has been a little warm here in Iowa for mid October….tomorrow the temperature is supposed to drop about 10 degrees and be rainy. I want Fall weather here, so that drop is ok with me.

**I am really excited to register for Baby this weekend. I will let you know how many fights we get in. πŸ˜‰
