I decided to take yesterday off work and do some work of my own on the twin's room. Since Monday, different family members have been here - painting, organizing clothes, arranging furniture... and Aaron got the baseboard in and most of the electrical done (still have to install a light). I went to my non-stress test in the morning (babies both looking perfect and my blood pressure is still great), and spent the rest of the day working on the valances. I was having issues getting started, but then I just went for it - and they turned out perfectly.

My aunts also attacked Hulk's room, and all of the clothes that he will never wear again are gone. Either donated or in a box for a pregnant friend. We got rid of a dresser that wasn't working for me, and pulled in one from the guest room - it's all wonderful. And organized. There is a nice playspace for Hulk in his room now. They even put labels on each drawer for where everything goes. Now I just need to keep it that way.

Last night, Aaron put up the black out shades and hung my finished curtains (woot!). We were talking about how everything is coming together so well for this room. And how lucky we are that we made Hulk's room the smaller of the bedroom's upstairs - so we have this just right sized room for the twins. And just how we finally know how to do everything. It's awesome. Really great. Only thing the room is missing is to hang artwork, Aaron is building a bookshelf, finish the lights, and have the rug delivered. I thought it was on backorder until Oct 27th... guess what arrived today?!?! My perfect rug for the room. Seriously - it s JUST perfect.

Happy Sigh. I want to post pictures, but I think I'm going to wait until it's really 'done'. Of course, no good day goes unpunished, and work today absolutely SUCKS. But I only have a few more hours.

In other news - tomorrow is my shower. I'm really looking forward to it - I think it's going to be a hoot - as all of Aaron's family is coming. And my friends have never met them - only heard stories. At least now they will know that I wasn't exaggerating!!!

I'm glad that everything is falling into place for the twins' arrival. Can't wait for the nursery to be finished so that we get to see pics!
