I hope Sarah doesn’t mind, but I have three magnificently beautiful things to report this week, so I thought I’d jump in and share them.
1. I have slept well 5 of the last 6 nights…meaning 6 to 8 hours per night 🙂 I am now almost back to being human!!
2. My house is fantastically clean, thanks to our friends nanny who doubles as a cleaning lady on her “off” time. In 5 hours she made the house sparkle! (And I’m sorry, I love the chemical smell of cleanliness!!) She is so worth every penny – and she isn’t expensive! I think this is going to become a monthly gift to us and our home.
3. Two years after Hurricane Ike spawned chaos in our home office, I have reclaimed the space. It is not totally finished, nor perfect, but it is good enough to rearrange/redistribute some furniture and see carpet. Not to mention we have taken out at least 8 paper grocery bags of recycling. The danger of someone calling “Hoarders” on me/us has greatly diminished – which is indeed a most beautiful thing!
Bonus beautiful thing…George and Gracie, our cats, seem to be responding well to their medicine. After almost two months, they have been out of quarantine for about a week and so far, so good. And interestingly, quarantine seems to have turned them in to puppies – they are following Chris and I around the house constantly, rarely leaving our sides. Its kind of cute!
I hope your week has been as full of goodness…
PS. For those of you who are wondering, James is apparently quite happy in his current environment. Although he is due in just 8 days, he is showing NO signs of making his debut. Fortunately, I continue to feel really good and have the luxury of a light schedule, so we are getting along just fine. Chris summed it up really well earlier this week when he said, “apparently the last few weeks of pregnancy is like Christmas eve…every day…with a lead weight in your belly…and there’s nothing we can do about it.” We’ll keep you posted and when there is news to tell, I hereby empower Auntie Sarah to post an announcement and pictures.
