This and that.

It's been a rough couple of days for me around here. I came down with a nasty cold (in the summer, no less) last Thursday/Friday, and suffered pretty bad on Saturday and Sunday. Thankfully Jon was home both of those days, so I passed a lot of parental duties on to him because I just didn't have the energy or desire to move far from the couch or bed. One of the tough things about being a parent is that when your sick, you don't get to call in sick! I feel much better today, even though my ears are really plugged up and I can't hear too well.
I have been ready to kick this sickness in the butt so bad, because I'm ready to start some projects around here! Saturday evening I wanted to get out of the house, so we went to Lowe's to grab all of the lumber I needed to build Cameron's bookshelf and bed.

While there, I asked my husband if he ever thought he'd have a wife who loved to spend her Saturday evenings at the hardware store. His answer: no. =) I also found a good deal on a mitre saw at a Pawn Shop today, so I picked it up so I don't have to keep borrowing my brother in law's. I am so excited to get started, and I hope to have the bookshelf built by the weekend. Pictures are definitely coming, so stay tuned!

You are amazing. I can't imagine building a bed and bookshelf in a normal situation, let alone when you're pregnant. Good for you!

Hope you're feeling better. Summer colds are the worst!

I got a summer cold on Friday/Saturday too! I had to stay home from work yesterday, but I feel better today w/plugged ears & a cough still. They are the worst- I feel for you not being able to take goods meds!

I *hate* being sick already, but you're so right, it is absolute hell when you're a momma. I hope you're feeling better!

Boo for being sick, but yay for another project. I know it will look great, L! : )
