Anyway, when I am pregnant, my organization/cleaning mode kicks up a notch and my poor husband is often the recipient of the whining about things that need to be done around the house. Every time I am pregnant, Josh ends up with some big project that I want done before the baby is born. Last time around he made me a lovely patio in the backyard with 2ftX 2ft cement blocks (30 tiles weighing 50 lbs each...good thing he is pretty tough). He literally finished it the day that I went into labor (what timing). I have loved the patio ever since and been grateful for his work.
This time around, I could not get past the horribleness of my living room. All I could see as I sat in there or walked by was nicked walls, nasty paneling (on one wall), broken baseboards, and stained, scraped linoleum. I hated it (I have hated it since we moved in, but the cost to repair it all has always been out of our reach). As I whined and fussed and cleaned the rest of the house until it shone (shined?), Josh took pity on me and decided to repaint the room (thanks to a gift card he got from some work he did we could afford it). So, almost two weeks later (thanks to "help" from our children) it is done and I LOOOOOOVE it!!! Josh did a much better job than I could ever have hoped for, and I am grateful for his time and effort. All I did was sit around growing baby ears or something (and I painted the trim...I know I know, no painting when you're pregnant...we opened all the windows...I couldn't just sit there doing nothing). Same furniture and all, and no pictures up yet, but I am so pleased! It finally feels like living room I can relax in instead of feeling like something constantly needs to be cleaned.
Thanks honey, you are amazing...and you're totally hot too!!!
