In January of 2009, we decided to put our condo on the market. We knew we wanted to start trying to get pregnant sometime during the year, so we wanted a place that was bigger and also a little closer to Philip’s work. After a year of our house sitting on the market and no takers, we finally took it off, realizing that at this point it was better to stay put for a while. Since deciding to stay, we also decided to do a few updates on our condo so we would be happy living here for the next year or so. We bought pillows for the couches, I made some curtains, we bought a new kitchen table, and we did a little re-decorating.
Then my dad came to town a few months ago and suggested along with our recent updates, we should build some storage shelves in our laundry room to give us extra room for the plethora of paintings that I’ve accumulated, and also a place to store extra diapers, food storage, toilet paper, etc. We jumped on that idea right away and designed all the shelving just to our specifications.
This weekend my dad came up and built the whole thing for us.
Now my job tomorrow is to paint the whole thing…we’ll see how that goes while I try to juggle my 3-week old baby who has a cold!
