Vanishing Blogger

Well, it seems as if once I finished decorating the nursery, my energy all just went down the drain. I'm just at the start of third trimester and boy do I feel it. I've been attempting to tackle some things on my to do list that I just know won't get done for months once the baby arrives but they're not fun things worth blogging about individually.

Here's one - I fixed the wall that I had originally patched poorly and I painted the ceiling in the bathroom. Unfortunately I never caught any photos that showed the mistake in the wall (it wasn't even something other people noticed but I did and I wanted it done right). I can show you where the problem started though. You see, when we moved into our house, the bathroom was U-G-L-Y and there was this giant built-in cabinet facing the toilet. When I gutted the bathroom soon after we moved in, that was the first thing to go but when I patched the wall, I didn't do a great job getting the new drywall flush with the old drywall. Here it is before and after (although you can't see the problem after):

So, I was able to check off 2 things that had been on my home improvement to do list for awhile
    ✔  Paint the bathroom ceiling
    ✔  Repair the bathroom wall
I also removed all the worn-out hook-and-loop tape from my first son's old Bum Genius cloth diapers. We LOVED the BG 3.0s but the tabs wore out in the laundry. I ordered the kits to replace the tabs but the pile was just sitting in my sewing area. Well, one day when I was feeling especially exhausted, I grabbed that stack and a stitch ripper and removed 48 tabs while sitting on the couch.

Beyond those two more time consuming projects I've just been trying to stay ahead of housework, motherhood and we even enjoyed a visit from my parents who live in St. Louis. Oh, and I've been growing a little monkey in my belly.

Rock on little dude!!

See, aren't ya glad I didn't try to make a post out of each of those items (particularly housework and motherhood).

Thank you for reading,
