Hopefully Clint gets his school work finished. Saturday Halliburton is having this big family Christmas party at the zoo. I really wanna take Valerie! Oh and BTW ~ I mailed her birthday party invitations yesterday!
Monday we went shopping in New Orleans. I was hoping to find a crib for Veronica, but no such luck. We paid about $250 for Valerie's crib. It seems most are $300-400 (plus delivery) now. I really don't want to spend that much, even for a convertible crib. So... we will keep looking around. My mom has a brand new crib that someone gave her that we can use if needed.
I DID finally buy new living room furniture from Rooms to Go!!! We needed it bad. The set we have was purchased from my cousin for $225. We were going to keep it a year or two and then get something new. Well, that was 4 years ago! lol The new set will be delivered Tuesday. I already have someone lined up to buy the old stuff. It was crazy expensive since we opted to get the sofa sleeper and loveseat sleeper. We did get interest free financing until 2011 though - it will be paid off well before then!! Since we're losing our guestroom, having 2 extra beds won't hurt. I was going to get a daybed or futon whenever we close in our porch, but we won't need that now. Made more sense to just spend $200 now to get the loveseat sleeper and avoid buying a futon later. It's a lighter green in person. Probably lighter than I would have liked, but I can't find anything else, so it will do.
Yesterday was my 24 week doctor's appointment. Routine stuff. Everything looks fine. I'm measuring right on target. I wanted to die when I got on the scale though. In 4 weeks I gained 8lbs! *gulp* I'm up about 18 lbs now, which is WAY more than I was with Valerie at this point. I need to stop eating so much junk and walk when I can. I don't want to end up gaining 40 lbs!!
Today we are working in Val's new room. We got all the junk out of the closet and took down the bed. Clint started painting. I decided on the butterflies afterall, and we're painting the bottom half of the wall a pretty pink. So far I'm liking how it is coming out! We still have a lot to do, but I think it will be really cute. My parents were supposed to come help today, but of course at the last minute my mom tells me they are just coming to visit later on. They do that all the time -- volunteer to come "help" then change their minds.So... that's about it for what has been going on!!
