March is here!!!

Wasn't it only a few days ago I was posting about how excited I was that it was February? Now here we are in March already, only three weeks away from spring. It is snowing outside, and I am still hoping we don't get much between now and the final melt. I have spring fever. I have for a long time. I don't know whether it's because of the time of year, or just because I'm pregnant, but I'm bursting to do some cleaning and renovating around here. I guess it's not technically renovating, but I want to paint the boys' bedrooms and get the three of them moved in together. That will mean buying a bunk bed plus new mattresses, and new bedding for all three. Then we will be painting and decorating their room, and once they are all settled, we will have to put together some kind of nursery. Okay, technically we don't have to, but we decided we would. This will be our fourth baby, and we have only done a nursery once, for Cody. This time we thought we should pull out all the stops. Go out with a bang, if you will. Sure, it's hard to plan that when you don't know whether it's a boy or a girl, but we will come up with something special. We want this baby to be celebrated, not just seen as "just another one". So we have much to do, and really not that much time to do it in. Mike will be working on his Masters throughout all of March, but come the end of spring break, he will be finished! Woo hoo!!! After that, we will be free to prepare for this baby in every way we need to, plus we may need to do more flood preparations for this year, though at the moment a drought is looking more likely.

Anyway, I am being summoned to sew some buttons onto Mike's coat, so I will do that for now. I know things are not exactly exciting in this blog recently. I suppose I don't have the most enthralling life, but it works for me. I'm off for now.
