So I’ve gotten good at creating projects for myself during the dreaded wait.  This time, we turned the dining room back into a dining room, turned BabyHope’s room into a playroom with an office in the closet, and turned the office into BabyHope’s “big girl” room.  It’s been quite the process, and we’re not done, yet!  The guest bedroom is a disaster, and we have to get it cleaned up by Friday as my sister and her husband are coming for a visit.  This project involved painting two rooms, moving a lot of furniture, and even more toys.

We also (well, Mr. Hope has had to do most of it) set up a vegetable garden.  So far we’ve planted broccoli, spinach, carrots, beets, onions, and a few different kinds of lettuce.  Snap peas are up next, but I need one more thing before I can plant them.  In a few more weeks, we’ll add some warmer weather crops like melon, tomatoes, and beans.

So that’s how I’ve been keeping myself busy.  Beta tomorrow.

  1. i really really really want to do some painting in our house, but haven’t felt too inspired. what rooms did you paint/what colors did you use?

  2. Way to keep busy! Just reading about all that makes me tired! 🙂

  3. Hope the beta is spectacular! I would love to have a garden! And we totally have the room for it as we have a nice large backyard, but I have a black thumb 😉 Can’t wait to see some pictures of it and all the work you have done around your house. We took Cooper’s crib down sunday and are going to IKEA this weekend in hopes of finding some fun stuff for his room and the playroom! I really don’t know how we’d survive without a playroom.

  4. Yay for gardens! We love ours and had a great time with it last year. I hate the cold, so I refused to have a winter garden but can’t wait to start planting at the end of Feb. probably when we get some time. Thinking about you today. Hope the beta is in and you are celebrating!

  5. Good luck with the garden. Anything I try to grow just withers away, I just can’t get the hang of it. Plants don’t demand food or attention, I think that’s it.
