The fact is, I've (and we've) done a lot of things in the past 2 years or so that weren't on the list at all...that were far greater feats than some of the tasks remaining. For instance, we built this beast in our back yard:
And we re-floored our laundry room with tile:
And we were blessed enough to get this good news:
So, in the grand scheme of things stuff like "Grow my own pumpkins" seems a little silly.
That doesn't mean I won't keep on keepin' on.
But it's just like that husband of mine to decide to take on a huge project, both before a baby is coming and before the holiday season. I'm learning to love it. He's the motivated one. While I prefer to sit on the couch and watch singers duke it out for a $5 million record contract or chefs cook with a basket of obscure ingredients for $10,000, he likes to do things like...turn our garage into a workshop so he can build bunk beds from scratch materials while promising to add woodworking to his ever-growing skill-set and ensuring that the quality of materials used is no less than superior.
Sorry, ladies, he's taken.
So that is what we're doing next. I say "we" because I do take some part in the projects, even if it's bringing him a drink or keeping the kids out of his hair. Sometimes I do more than that. Sometimes.
At any rate, our girls are getting new bunk beds for Christmas. I really hope they like them! Knowing my husband, they'll be awesome. I have no doubts.
