Up and Running

This whole basement thing might just work out after all! The carpet was installed this morning and despite the fact that my son was not able to take a nap and ended up doing this instead.... was still a very successful day! The carpet looks amazing. I can't even begin to describe how much of a difference it made from transforming the space we've been working in from a "basement" to a family room, a playroom, an office. Add that together with moving in my desk & computer (and getting the Internet hooked up!), the couch and furniture into the family room, and getting 2 of the 3 doors installed, and the rooms are actually starting to take shape. It's kind of weird to be sitting in my new basement office writing this post right now, but I'm so excited that I will actually have a room to bring our new baby home to that is truly his. Now all I have to do is get that room set up along with everything else that needs to be finished up down here!! I know you're probably itching to see photos, but I'm just not ready yet. I want to at least get some of the furniture arranged in the way it will belong before I snap some more photos. Plus, Evan has been keen to remind me not to put too much up against the walls because he still needs to install baseboards and the crown moulding. It's wonderful though. I am so blessed....and very tired! :)
