Rx relief is on the way!

I have the worst cold I have had in a long long long time. I guess it started late last week, but it wasn’t so bad. I even had a good day on Saturday – very productive! Britt and I did a lot of “nesting” type activities getting things ready for Jake – painted furniture, put things together, organized, etc. But then yesterday was not so good, and today I am MISERABLE! Very little voice left, deep chest cough, throbbing headache, clogged sinuses, sniffles, you name it, I’ve got it. Called the nurse this morning to get the ball rolling and she spoke with the Dr. who called in 2 prescriptions for me. I think she said Zyrtek D and an antibiotic. Since Britt works in the University student health clinic, he has an in house pharmacy right there, so he has my drugs for me really quickly! I sure hope it helps! I leave town in 4 days!

And for a little nursery update and what we did Saturday:

Jake's furniture is really close to being done! The dresser, rocker and changing table are black, but need a coat of clear coat. The crib is about 1/3 done. We bought the quarter round for the floor, and the crown molding for the ceiling. The quarter round just needs to be installed, and we got all the crown painted, so it needs to be installed. AND, super DH of mine, cleaned out the garage! It looks AMAZING! All the summer toys are in one corner, and (although one side is still full of Jake's furniture) lots of things got thrown away and it is all pretty and USEFUL space now! YAY!

I was inside all day wokring around the house. I got all our Christmas presents wrapped. That took a LOT longer than I anticipated! We are doing Santa Claus Thursday over night and opening presents Friday morning before we head out. I am still waiting for 2 shipments! They need to get here SOON! Then, I got out E&L's old pack and play, cleaned it throughly, and set it up in our room! Jake's room is all blues and greens and blacks, and we had several Oklahoma State (orange and black) things, so all the OSU stuff in with the pack n play - looks kinda fun in our room! I also opened several accessories (Mirror, mobile, etc) and put them together and put batteries in them. We also put the travel system stroller together!

Then, we also went to Wal-Mart to buy the clear coat for the furniture, and we found the PERFECT rug for Jake's room! And it was LARGE, and ONLY $20! We were so excited! Got home and unrolled it on the beautiful flooring in there, and it could not be any more perfect!
So, Britt still needs to to clear coat the dresser, rocker and changing table, while I need to organize the closet. I need to make little markers to indicate the different sizes of clothes! I am also going to figure out what I want in each dresser drawer, so we can at least bring the drawers for the dresser inside and load them up. Can't bring the WHOLE dresser in until the trim is done in the room. OH! And we finally got curtains that fit, so we hung those, too! I took a pic of the curtains and I will post it soon!
