Our new living room

is absolutely beautiful. I'll post pictures of the whole process on flickr just as soon as we get them developed. The brother- and sister-in-law went far, far above and beyond the call of duty in moving furniture, painting (and painting and painting), and laying floor, and then moving some MORE furniture because the first time apparently just wasn't enough for them. We are looking forward to being able to do a similar service for them someday.

Did I mention that our new living room is absolutely beautiful? Oh my. The Husbandlet and I keep walking by it, stopping, and saying, "Is that the same room?" This morning, I went dashing out to check on it, and came back and told him, "It's still there!"

Because a picture is worth a Whole Bunch of words, I won't attempt to describe the changes in detail and will leave them, instead, to your 1) horrified, 2) wonder-struck eyes. Suffice to say that the room went from a 1960s orange-and-avocado theme with a cement slab floor partially covered by an ancient green area rug (more like a really big carpet square), to blue and white with wood floors. We have comfy furniture, kindly given by our pastor and his wife (they updated our furniture by an estimated 30 years), and I have a baby-rocking nook next to the bookshelf (in easy reach of the Foxtrot and Zits comic books) with a nice lamp.

So we are thrilled.

More thrilling news: we have yet another baby doctor appointment today. Perhaps there will be ultrasounds. You never know.

We have a new, improved living room! Come visit us.

YAY!!!!! Happy updates for baby houselet. :-) Auntie Neb can't wait to see. I'm sure, as you suggest, that I must Come and Visit to really be impressed. How does... um... the entire month of July sound? :-D

No dice on the workers comp. But we do offer free thumb amputations. You can pick your anesthesia yourself.
