Diversions with bubble wrap

I've been the master of diversion lately. Anything to keep my mind from obsessing over every twinge, every symptom, and every anti-symptom. In theory I'm at 6 weeks today. No major symptoms except for boobs that seem to weigh 8 pounds more than they did a few weeks ago. Like lead balloons, these suckers.

My primary source of distraction has been packing. We have two big portable storage containers sitting outside our house waiting to be filled. We're getting as much crap as we can out of the house now so we can put it on the market in a few weeks. J and a friend will be doing the heavy lifting this weekend. I will be doing the bossing around.

In news from the other side of the country, we finally broke ground on our remodel. This is the house we will eventually be moving to. It looks so very sad with it's ruffled shingles, missing front steps, and exposed foundation. Okay, it looked pretty sad even before all that, but now even more so.

But one day it's going to be a gem. A four-bedroom gem. That's a lot of bedrooms for just the two of us. Crap, this had better work.

Be careful with that bubble wrap! :-)

Your remodel sounds exciting, and even more so knowing that you will be "filling" the house up with more love...

Have a great weekend.

Bubble wrap is the best. Have fun "bossing!"

I'll be thinking of you!

I'm glad you have a distraction, although packing can be terrible. Hopefully you can do your bossing around this weekend from the couch!

Take care and I'm glad you're doing well!!

You can think of it as bossing, but tell him it's organizational management (0:

All our crap's in a mobile storage and I can't wait until December to get out of this apartment and go to town on the new house. Looks like you've got your projects cut out for you. Or just for the hubby!!

I am glad that you have something to help keep your mind off things.

I hope that you will post pictures of your remodel as you make progress.

May your distraction be a good one & may the two weeks go very fast & may the u/sound be just right!

I hope you didn't lift too much! Bossing is about all you should be doing right now.

Take care and good luck!
