Because of my present condition, I have not been able to paint with my wonderful husband. So, he has taken it upon himself to dedicate hours in the nursery all by himself, painting and hammering away. We have finished the painting, although we now need to go back with white paint and paint the ceiling, door frames, and door (because the last owners decided to let their two year old paint the room - or so it looks - and got paint EVERYWHERE). Mr. Howard has also finished the wainscoting on almost two walls and only has a third. Once he finishes that, we'll be able to caulk it, paint it white, and finish the floor boards and top trim. We just so want to get all the basics done in there, so that it can sit and wait for someone to fill it.
Have I ever mentioned how wonderful Mr. Howard is? How much he takes care of me? I sit on the couch attempting to keep my food down, while he works his butt off. I can barely get off the couch in the evenings to go in there and ooh and aww over his hard work and he never complains. It would be hard for me to be sweating away while he sat on the couch watching movies, and yet he never complains. I love you, sweetheart!
(P.S. We took pictures to upload on this post, but realized that we left my cord, to upload the pictures, at work. I promise to upload them soon.)

We've been working on our final room in the house. There are lots of little touch-up's to do on the rest of the house, but we've been dreading getting in the last room because it was such a mess. When Tim and Kathe came out in June, Tim helped us add a closet overhang and add texture to the walls in that room. So, the time finally came for us to get started.
Before I talk about what we did this weekend, let's take a look at all that we've done so far.
When we ripped out the wooden loft, we noticed that the previous owners had wrecked the closet overhang:
I promise in a few weeks to get back to my normal posting schedule. While I am feeling a little better, I am still quite sick. When given the choice between writing on the blog or getting extra sleep and rest, I am having trouble choosing to blog.
