a week off

Christmas was so wonderful...last one without a little one, which made for a very grown up holiday.  But we enjoyed being with my family, sleeping in, trying to keep Scout tame for my mom, and envisioning what next year will be like.  So grateful for family, and time with them.

I am also so, so incredibly grateful to have the week off from work this week.  I can't stress that enough.  But, I feel like this picture below depicts how I'm feeling.'s coming really soon!  We've got to get a move on!

So, this week we are spending all of our time purging, organizing, rearranging, painting, re-doing furniture, registering (well, it's happening at some point!), cleaning, and the list goes on.  There's a part of me that secretly loves all of this, so no need for a pity party.  It's tiring work, but so gratifying in the or no baby on the way.  I'm just so glad that I have a full week to focus on the arrival of our babe.  And it's amazing how in the midst of all of this, I've managed to realize the things we need to get done on our house, too!  It's as though I forget we'll still have a life after the little one arrives. :)

And this guy is so confused, trying to figure out what in the heck is going on...

Little does poor Scout realize that his world is about to be rocked as well.  I am confident (or else just trying to convince myself so that I won't go crazy) that this pup will be a great big brother!
