Just in Time

Monday, September 29th, 2008

The blinds arrived today just in time for the party!!!  The shower curtain is up and the towel warmers are warming!!!  The three stars are currently draped on the four poster bed and shinning so gloriously… at least one of them needs to move to another galaxy though before the first birth.  Which room will get the extra star????  Will it be the white star, or the navy one or the star with the touch of turquoise?  Such huge decisions to make when moving stars.  Let me know what your think.   I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone.

Official Open House Announcement

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

Hopefully in the next day or two you’ll have received an e-mail or post card invitation….  I know I don’t have correct addresses or current e-mail for everyone so if for some reason you got missed please accept this web invitation and my apologies.

Open House

Sunday, September 7th, 2008

Draw a happy pumpkin on your calendar on Friday, October 3rd, because I think that would be a lovely day for an open house party.   I’d love to show off the new place and visit with anyone that is able to drop by.  No guilt if you can’t make it but if you can we’ll have fun. I’ll post the party hours when it gets closer but I think from 1:00-6:00 might work.  I think we’ll have cookies.  : )

If you’d like to try out your Halloween costumes early the party will have a Halloween theme because I have lots of napkins and plates with spiders and pumpkins on them.   What will my costume be this year???

We’ve Moved!!!

Solid oak lab pass through door or 'the magic pee door'.

Solid oak lab pass through door or 'the magic pee door'.

What a week!!!  The contractor called this last week “controlled chaos”.  I won’t vouch for the controlled part but it was chaos.  The instant hot water didn’t fit well in the allotted space and took until last evening to successfully install.  It’s beautiful though…if you didn’t care about wasting water you could shower for days.  The plumber took a picture of it just like a proud dad. 

There wasn’t enough carpet ordered so part of the hall just got “temporary carpet” yesterday while we’re waiting for more of the “right” stuff.  The painter didn’t show up for the “touch up” painting which was needed on almost every wall.  Yesterday we found out he quit so we had to get a new guy.  The fire marshal decided we needed one more alarm when he came for final inspection after he ok’d the building plans.   And then there were all the odds and ends.

Even things I was sure I had taken care of didn’t work out.  The box spring for the four poster bed was delivered but the mattress never arrived….still hasn’t….the love seat for my office was ordered as two couches so I have an empty wall in my office while that’s being worked out.   The dryer that was “in-stock” in the warehouse was never there when the truck arrived.  There seems to be a Salt Lake Bermuda triangle for furniture and appliances.

The good news is we received the Certificate of Occupancy today!!!!  So we’re moving in…and should have it looking pretty good in another week or so.  Hopefully we’ll post pictures soon.  It’s been a pretty dramatic transformation even in the last 24 hours.

I can’t wait to focus my attention on my ladies and being a midwife again.  These last few weeks have been very busy and distracting for me.  Thanks for your patience.  It’s going to be so nice.  Wait until you get to put your cup of urine through the lovely oak pass through door to the lab.  Pretty special. : )
