It's Coming Along

It's been a long time since I did a basement renovation update. I've seriously been slacking. Shame on me.

So last weekend I asked Derek to film a video for me showing you all the basement. He's such a good sport, dealing with all my odd requests related to blogging. Come to think of it, I should have taken the camera from him for a minute so he could have been in the video too. Oh well.

Please excuse my messy hair - I obviously didn't comb through it very well before taking this video. And videos always turn out best on the first try - if I had brushed my hair and tried again, it would have taken five more takes to actually get it right.

I think it's because I have too much time to think about what I want to say, and then it doesn't come out right, or I stumble over my word or something. The bottom line is you're left with a video of me with messy hair.

I'm pretty sure you guys won't care (you aren't going to make fun of me behind your computer screens, are you?).

I did decide on a paint color, but like I said earlier this week, due to circumstances beyond my control, I was forced by Derek and my mother to spend Monday resting instead of painting like I wanted to. But they were right, it was good for me to take a rest. I actually need to ask you all about a paint color for a different room now. Oh, choices, choices.

And I know some of you were concerned about it, so let me reassure you that Babykins is just fine. I've been feeling fine ever since, and I got to hear the bebe's heartbeat again on Tuesday. He/she was swimming around again, and I think there must have been some kicking going on, because there was a couple of loud "thwomps" that we heard on the machine too, right before Babykins swam away - maybe some of the water being swished around? Boy, I wish I could feel it! Soon enough, I suppose.

Anyway, here's the video!
