Well, it has been a while since my last "real" post. And not for a lack of things to blog about. I think it is a combination of my eternal procrastinating and the fact that we moved the computer down to the basement to make room for baby. And the basement represents laundry for me...so I try to steer clear!
I have been in major organization mode the last few weeks. Not from any nesting instinct but just because I know I might never get around to it once the baby arrives. So I have been going from one room to the next, organizing, purging and hopefully making a dent. It is amazing how much stuff I have accumulated since I moved out on my own. And I really can't blame any of it on Matt...it is all me!! The main thing that is out of control for me is pictures and my craft stuff. I have never really had room to spread that stuff out so I need to purchase some bins and storage units. Maybe one day, I will even be crafty again!!
Hopefully this weekend, Matt and I can make a dent on the nursery. We need to paint (but we are on a stand off regarding color) and actually order the furniture we have picked out.
One last thing for today...and this is really late but I still think it is important. A couple of weeks ago, one of my childhood friends died from a drug overdose. He was a wonderful person and actually one of the most Christian-like people I have ever known. I honestly don't know if he was a Christian when he died. But I do know he was very giving, very accepting,very loving and he knew the bible inside and out when we were in high school. He poured himself into religion and bible study but I don't know about his beliefs recently. He was just an addict and could never conquer his addiction. His first time in rehab was when we were in eighth grade and his first overdose was in his early twenties.
Anyway, please pray for his family. They are reeling from the shock of losing their child so young...even though I think they all knew drugs would kill him someday. That knowledge doesn't make it any easier. Pray for them as I know there is a lot of guilt and what ifs floating around.
