In Which The House Is Almost Finished And I Am Behind On Packing

Oh man, I'd better hurry up on the packing. 

We met with Becky of Signature Custom Homes over at the house today, and they plan to be finished in a week!  You wouldn't believe how quickly things are moving over at the house now.  While we were there they were hard at work on the beautiful floors; they'd already finished the kitchen, library, and living room, and were up to the entryway when we left.  The second coat of paint on the walls and all of the touchup paint had been finished.  A stunning mudroom bench had also been added in the laundry room as a surprise!  Pictures tomorrow, as I didn't bring over my camera tonight. 

I can't believe that we're that close to moving in!  I have some serious packing to do-- I've been slacking off in a major way since we've all been sick over here.  Jeremy is pretty much over his illness, though he's still a little tired.  I'm still pretty lethargic and still have a sore throat, but otherwise I'm good.  Connor had a lot more energy today, but he's still snorting like a miniature enraged bull.  He's down for the night, and it's really easy to make sure that he's still breathing right now because we can hear the rattling snores quite clearly through the monitor.  We'll see how he feels tomorrow, but my guess is he'll probably miss yet another day of school.  Luckily it was a holiday today and he has Wednesdays off so he's missed less school than he would have otherwise.  I'm sure by Thursday he'll be well enough to go back.

I'll be really happy when he's not sick anymore, because while he has a stuffy nose he becomes a mouth breather, and somehow while he's breathing through his mouth he loses the ability to swallow anything.  We're talking massive amounts of drool here.  He's soaking through three or four outfits a day right now.  He also doesn't want to eat anything by mouth, of course, because he doesn't want to have to try to breathe through his nose while he swallows.  Thank goodness we have the g-tube! 

Also thank goodness for washing machines!  I don't even want to think about how much fun all this stuff would be to wash by hand.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Good luck with the moving! It will be wonderful to get settled in.

Goodness, I hope Connor gets over his cold quickly. It is amazing how quickly laundry can build up on an ordinary day, I can't imagine the load sizes when drool is involved. Washing machines have to be among the best inventions ever!

Get well soon, all of you!
