So Mr.B and I are dragging our feet with this dresser project that we need to do. I want him and his buddies to get it out of the babies room so we can go out side and sand/primer/paint but he says its entirely too heavy and that we should just use a tarp and do it in Skylers room. This may sound fantastic but ALL I can picture is a crap ton of dust and me cleaning everything up. I guess if I let him do it his way though it will get done faster. Anyone ever paint a dresser? Any tips? I've read to sand enough to get the shiny coat off of the wood then it will be good to go for primer. Come on people I need motivation. ((UPDATE:: I just vented to Mr.B & he told me to stay home from work tomorrow and we could work on it - do I feel a cold coming along?))
In my getting bigger stages I defiantly feel more irritated and less mobile. I don't like to bend over and heaven forbid I wear shoes that I need to tie. My goodness. I feel my face getting puffy I know it is baby related so I don't want you guys to think I am complaining about carrying a life inside of me but I'm just so not used to this.
I've also been thinking a lot about my career and school during the past week. I told my husband there is no way I want to go back to work where I currently am unless we absolutely NEED the money. I am am about 9 credits away from an associates in Fire Science and I'm planning on going to talk to someone from administration this week. I need to figure out what I need to do and what they would recommend for me to finish it up. Heck maybe I can take one online course this fall. Once I get back into the swing of going to school I think it will be easier to take more classes. Kinda backwards having a kid THEN going back to school... So much going through my head. I'm scared as heck with all these things looming over me. My career, this baby, the house work, going back to school.... It's a TON to think about but I know it will make me a better person & mom in the long run.
