Hard at work

So, I'm here at work for another 3 weeks before maternity leave. I've been busy cleaning and writing a new office handbook so that I'll (hopefully) not be called 1,000,000,000 times a day with questions. Now that I have all of that done I can focus on meeting with all the volunteers to show them a few things and answer any questions they may have now.

We still need few things before the baby gets here within the next 1-5 weeks. For example, a relative gave us a bed, but we need a mattress. We also need a pad for the changing table and a few other items. I hit the town-wide garage sales last week and found more than $100 worth of clothes for around $15 all day. I think I did pretty good! Mom's focusing in on making diapers and crib sheets and fun things like that, so I won't have to worry about any of that.

We're still not in our new house, but it's almost finished. They'll be trenching for the electricity later this week, so it won't be long now. It's kind of a bummer that we'll be moving in at about the same time we'll be having the baby, but, it will be fine. Maybe it'll be better to have all the stress over with at once instead of going from one thing to the next.

In other news: The weather has cleared up and become beautiful! It's easier for me to get up in the morning and be happy. My brother graduates from college on May 17th. We're ALL very excited to go and watch and share that with him. Nobody knows if he has any solid plans for the summer, but he'll do something worthwhile. That's just the way he is. We love him lots!
I'm tired now and am fantasizing about a nap at home. I hope all is well with all of you...enjoy the weather!
