Yay, it’s Friday! This has been a long week (complete with a cross-country commute), so I’m glad to have a couple days to catch my breath. We are in the thick of nesting over here at Chez Condellberry with the delivery of a twin bed yesterday for Jackson (and now we convert his toddler bed back into a bassinet for the baby), a couple of air conditioners, new bathroom vanities that need to be assembled and installed, and lots of new baby clothes courtesy of my mother — and a cute “Big Brother” shirt for the world’s most excited big brother-to-be — that I need to launder and find room for. The addition of the twin bed — which seems huge in comparison to what Jackson has been sleeping on — complete with the coolest robot sheets, has made me re-think the entire layout of the bedroom, which both kids will be sharing, as well as the playroom/office, and, neurotic and hormonal as I am lately, I was up in the middle of the night measuring furniture and walls and literally moving shit around from side to side and room to room, while trying not to wake up my sleeping child and husband. And then when Drew woke up this morning at 6 to his crazy-eyed, up-all-night, pregnant wife, I immediately put him to work moving the stuff that was too heavy for me to move, like a bookcase and a dresser and the beds, which I’m sure he was totally thrilled about. I don’t know which one of us needs a shot of tequila more. (Considering this weekend marks nine years Drew has been dealing with my bullshit, I’m inclined to say he does; Happy anniversary, Drewski).
Anyhoo. Weekend! Kentucky Derby! Some boxing match everyone is talking about! May! Warm weather and sunny skies and trees in bloom and good moods everywhere! Go out and enjoy yourself, won’t you?
