The Fish Are All Gone

In sad news, we no longer have fish. Mira was our miracle fish – read the story here. It seems that Mira truly preferred a not so clean tank. A few days after the latest cleaning we found Mira at the bottom. I think we are going to take a little break from fish for…

The Baby Has A Bed

Wade and I weren’t really prepared for a baby that arrived early. We would have made do and could have bought what necessities we didn’t have. We had the crib, still in a box, but no mattress. We had a bassinet and the foam to make a mattress, but the sheets hadn’t been tested. Mom…

    How sweet is that! Good job mom 🙂

    She’s great at “fixing”. She had been planning to come before the baby arrived to help me decorate so we just got a head start.

Wade Confuses The Apple Man

Wade decided to add some RAM to my laptop. During the process he noticed my battery was bubbling. I had seen this a while ago, but didn’t even think twice about it. Oops. Wade did a little research online and found the batteries now had an extended two year warranty because of this problem. My…

Ice Storm in Paducah

It turns out my mom picked a good time to visit. There was a huge ice storm in Paducah Monday night and evidently it was really bad. We have been able to talk to family and friends and most people are okay, but 90% of the area is without power. My mom’s side of the…

    What I wouldnt give to have a deatbe with you about this. You just say so many things that arrive from nowhere that Im fairly sure Id have a fair shot. Your weblog is terrific visually, I mean people wont be bored. But others who can see past the videos and the layout wont be so impressed with your generic understanding of this topic.

The Dining Room Is Finished

Finally another room is complete. I had painted the windows in the dining room right after Christmas, but the room still needed a decorating touch. Mom helped a ton with that. Now the room is done and I can just sit and enjoy!

Status Quo

I went to do the doctor today, but nothing has changed. I’m still on bed rest for two weeks (ending February 5th) and everything else looks fine. She listened to the baby’s heartbeat and said he sounds great.

Wade Gets Motivated

Wade has been in a self-proclaimed funk. After lunch he finally decided he had to motivate himself to get anything done. The crib was first on the list, but I’m not sure he was too happy about it. The good news is putting it together was a breeze. The new doors for the nursery closet…

    Great job Wade. I hope to see it in person sometime after the baby comes. 🙂

  • HollyJanuary 31, 2009 - 4:13 pm

    We hope you see it in person too!

Having Mom Around

Mom doesn’t want me to do anything while on bedrest. The doctor said I can work at my desk and get up to get food and drink, but that’s about it. My mom has done the laundry, gone to the grocery, cooked our meals, and is now cleaning my fish tank. That’s love!

    Holly,
    Too bad you haven’t been in the house long enough to have closets that need to be cleaned out. I know how much your Mom enjoys that!

  • HollyJanuary 27, 2009 - 12:18 am

    I don’t have any closests that need cleaning but she’s been great at “decorating.” She definitely has knack for making things look just right.
