Sick and Productive

So the pink eye got worse and spread to my throat. No, I didn't have Pink Throat, I had a form of pink eye that infects everything from the shoulders up. It was bad. I went back to the insta care. Got a prescription for a gargle throat numbing thing (all I could get cuz of the baby.) The gargle just made me almost choke to death 3 times, so I decided to live with the pain. (Have I mentioned my extremely sensitive gag reflex that I blame on pregnancy? Never had a problem in my life, and now my eyes water and I gag/almost throw up when I brush my teeth. So a creamy mediciny stinky liquid disguised with bubble gum flavor didn't work for me.

It lasted 10 days, and the other eye eventually turned pink, but by yesterday my throat was better and both eyes were really light pinkish and one didn't open all the way. But today I'm almost at 100%. By Thursday of last week I decided that if I couldn't get better being lazy, I'd try and get better being productive.

Look what we did!

This is a little dresser for the little stuff. Socks, hats, shoes, and any other tiny things Paw needs. We bought it unfinished and I stained and painted it and Paul helped with the finish.
We moved all of my stuff out of the nursery and into my own little nook in the den.

Picked up more furniture from my work.

Paul played peacemaker after a little fender bender involving 2 very angry people.

Bought paint. Two times.

Our truck got hit at Home depot. Nothing major.

Paul and I painted and finished this book/toy shelf.
Went shopping at IKEA and Babies R Us.

Painted ceiling and base boards. (Thanks mom, that was all her)
Painted walls.
Moved dresser, changing table and book shelf into the nursery.
Weed whacked our yard.

Painted and stained our garden boxes.
Planted our square foot garden.

We have so many projects that we love working on. I love that its warm. I love that we have a yard to spend time in. I love making changes around the house.

I also have a slight fear that I'm going to have the fatigue of trimester 3 hit me. I've been pretty on track with all the "normal" happenings of each phase of this process, so I wouldn't be at all surprised if I got the trimester 3 sleepys. That's just a couple weeks away so I want to get as much of the major stuff done before mid-june.

Time is flying.

Also, we've picked a name. First AND middle. I really love it, and I really have to keep reminding myself that Paul won't let us tell anyone what it is until delivery day. I'm so bad at secrets, but I think I can do it.

Cute dresser!
It's good to keep the name a secret. You seriously don't need anyone's opinion, besides you and your hubs.

Oh my. You are bringing back all the memories to me. Yes, we all go through it and it is so worth it in the end. Your garden looks doable and the dresser is darling. Hang in there and can't wait to hear the name.
