Ahhh...... insomnia.....

Or maybe it's just "busy brain"... All I know is I wake up in the middle of the night and even though I'm tired, there's no going back to sleep.

This morning, I woke up at 3am, tossed and turned for an hour, then sat up and dragged out the laptop - might as well amuse myself if I'm not going to get any sleep. I can't even really sleep in tomorrow because I have the guy coming to measure for the new floors at 10am!!

First Born has gone back to school and I miss him :( He went back a few days early because his friends were already moving into the dorms and he wanted to spend time with them. Then he posted an apology on my Facebook page because he was afraid that he upset me by leaving 2 days earlier than he absolutely HAD to!! He's such a sweet child! I'm having trouble letting him grow up, but that's MY burden, not his, and that's what I told him! I never gave a second thought as to how my parents felt when I moved away from home, because I was too caught up in what I wanted to do...

As much as I didn't want him to go, I'm looking foward to all that I have to do now - well, not ALL of it!! I am dreading having to disassemble all the furniture and move it out of the bedrooms so we can replace the floors, but I'm very much looking foward to having the floors replaced! It's going to be a LOT of work to get this done, and I don't have all that long to do it - maybe 10 weeks - but at the same time, I can't wait to get started on the nursery! I've picked the main wall color (a pink that matches the bedding), now I need to get a chocolate to paint the inside of the closet (can't leave it ORANGE!!) and I'm debating whether to leave the trim the antique white that it is currently, or go with a more ivory color... A good portion of the woodwork will need to be repainted regardless - either the same color or something different; so it's just a matter of deciding what I prefer. I found some shears at the Habitat store that I might go back and get tomorrow... they're ivory, so maybe I'll just try to match them - right now, the woodwork is a little more white... then I can get the ivory chandelier and it won't look dingy! Oh, so many decisions!! LOL

We have another OB appointment next Wednesday (the glucose tolerance test - ick!), then I have the preview for the trunk sale that night (the Divine Consign show in north Raleigh); I think I'm going to stay with my grandmother Wednesday night because (1) I haven't seen her in a while and it would make her happy and (2) I'm volunteering at the show for an 8am shift on Thursday (that's how I get to go to the preview Wednesday night) and it makes no sense to drive all the way back home Wednesday night!! The boys are here next week and they'll be in school, so Bill will have to deal with that, but it will be alright. I hope they have some nice stuff at the sale! Not that I really need to buy any more clothes at this point, BUT... maybe if I can find some slightly larger sizes?? We'll see...
