Well, its’ been a while.
I hit this nesting surge and it has completely, and I mean completely, taken over my life. Seriously. I have made list after list after list and started project after project after project.
But let’s go back to where we left off.
Mr. Dunbar’s Birthday.
The boys and I surprised him at his hospital with a cake (as chosen by the boys from Costco). All of the food in the cafeteria where Mr. Dunbar works is practically homemade so rather than heading out we ate there.
I had just about started the full on “nesting” mode, cleaning out drawers and closets, and making messes everywhere, nothing too stressful or heavy, just the itty bits in the house that had been irking me for some time.
My mom and I headed into South Coast to get the boys’ bedding. We tried waking Monkey up when we got home but he just wouldn’t budge. So this is what it looked like the next morning. Yes, they got the Star Wars sheets from Pottery Barn Kids and a brownie.
Then two Sundays ago , Mr. Dunbar flew to Chicago. That was all it took.
It was my ticket for craziness! (And I blame it all on my mother. Just so you know.)
A few hours after Mr. Dunbar left, my parents came over and we started in on the boys’ room.
And this is just the beginning of the saga. My house has pretty much looked like the above picture ever since. Only all of the junk in the living room has just been revolving stuff. Boys’ toys, boys’ clothes, boys’ old bedding, nursery stuff, baby clothes, baby gadgets and bedding, my bedding, junk from closets, you name it… Hopefully I’ll have some after pictures soon.
A BIG thank-you to my parents who came over and helped me convert both boys’ bedrooms and for all of the stuff that came along with it.
And also to my MIL who has taken the hooligans for hours on several different days so I could make messes by myself.
Hope to catch up with everyone soon.
