Under Construction

I find it ironic that I have a post that I was currently working on about all the projects we've been working on since the beginning of the year. But that got put on hold in order to complete more major projects here at the house. :-)

I've been out of touch with the world since Sunday when my computer (and just about everything else in the house) got packed away for slight renovations.

Yesterday we were able to get all our windows replaced. And tomorrow we're getting new carpet. Yea! That three little word followed by an exclamation mark doesn't fully express the true excitement and giddiness inside me right now! I couldn't stop smiling at all yesterday (until it came time for clean up at 11 pm).

Ben decided that while he had to be home bound all day with the window installers that he'd do a little demolition and tear out the brick floor of our fire place. 30 minutes into that, we decided to just tear our the brick walls of the fireplace as well. Crazy? Yes. But so worth it! (**Insert picture of amazingly talented husband here**).

Anyway, I'll post before and after pics once it's completed. But I am so excited about everything that I just had to share!

As for a pregnancy update, only 1 week to go! I'm huge, swollen and have elephantitis feet and ankles (a.k.a cankles), but happy as a lark. I'm scheduled to be induced next Wednesday, April 28th if the baby hasn't come by then. We've just been praying the baby won't come until after Thursday when we can have the house put back together and actually have baby things set up! I can't wait to see our new little man!
