So, first we'll start with the play room. It was the biggest task, simply because of all the organization that had to go into it. My vice is early educational things like workbooks and curriculum books, activity books you name it . . . I'm a sucker for that stuff (usually at Half Price or some dollar stores. I'm a sucker, but I'm a broke sucker!) So with the move, I realized I needed to have better organization instead of my usual "throw it in the closet" tactic. It took I'm not sure how long to get the old office stuff out and move the new play room stuff in plus all the organizing and the fact we put all the nursery stuff in there as storage. But here it is, almost complete! (We have to hangup the magnet board and I still have to make my homemade bulletin board with 4' X 4' sheet of birch and cork shelf liner). I should take a picture of the closet so you can see what an addict I am to all the stuff I buy!
The play room was destined to become the nursery. This picture was of its worst disarray. We still have to paint, hang the curtains, and organize the closet that happens to have a bunch of husbands stuff in it (it would be done by now if it had been MY stuff, of course). I have a feeling this room might still be in the process of being worked on after baby is here, simply for the fact I have to move on to our bedroom since it's the first room the baby will be in for a few months. I had to do the nursery first. It's a mental thing I guess, having the nursery done before the baby is here whether or not you're actually going to be using it right off the bat. So, for the most part, this is where I stand on progress. We still have boxes of Christmas stuff to put in the attic so we can move all our crap -- er -- stuff from the old office into the garage (that my husband plans on converting one day . . . haha). He needs to install the base to the car seat (anyone else really suck at doing those?) and, and, and . . . I think that's it! I put the stroller and car seat/carrier together . . . oh, I do need to organize all the out of season and "too small" clothes of my first born. Other wise it'll be a massive head ache when it comes time to find clothes the new baby can adopt. (PS . . not the best pictures in the world, but you get the idea!)
