First, We Need a Shed
Last summer, I posted about our dire need for a storage shed. It took us 9 months, we finally got off our lazy butts and decided to build one. 15 minutes after we started unpacking the boxes, it started raining. Most people would have called it quits, realizing that it's not easy, comfortable or smart to build something while soaking wet. We are NOT most people. We pushed through and finished the shed in just under 7 drizzly hours. What can I say... we like a challenge! I am beyond excited that it's done, because it means that we are finally inching closer to getting the nursery ready. Trust me- there is a connection between a backyard storage building and our future children's room.
Currently, we call the nursery an "office". In reality, it's my craft/junk room and happens to house our printer and internet hub. The junk/craft supplies need to live in our hall closet, so things in the closet needed a new home. Among the closet dwellers was our ShopVac, because the garage was full of lawn equipment and there is absolutely no room for a portly vacuum. So, it was imperative to build a shed for the ShopVac (and the lawnmower, etc) so that we could start cleaning out the office! Make sense? Probably not, but it seemed necessary to get the shed built before anything else could happen.
If you were able to follow any of that, congratulations. I live here, and it's hard for me to make sense of it. The whole point is that we are actually making progress on the one thing that is causing 99% of the stress/panic in my life right now. And that makes me one very happy pregnant lady.
