Day 58: Time for a Housekeeping Rant

It seems the last two nights or so of going to bed at 1 a.m. caught up with me  and by 9 p.m. I needed toothpicks to keep my eyes open.  I was working on a flower for a hat and just could not concentrate.  Rather than fight it, I put the flower down and went to sleep.  I was up by 7:30 this morning and took extra care to be really, really quiet so Kayvan could sleep in his little cocoon next to me (he sleeps with the blanket over his head in here).  The nurse came in and whispered “Do you need anything?” to me out of courtesy to him.  I whispered on the phone when I ordered my breakfast and even left the lights off as long as I could–which wasn’t long.

Who wasn’t quiet or respectful this morning?  Housekeeping.  Seriously lady, what theee eff.  You are early.  Normally, housekeeping doesn’t come until lunch time.  When you knock and I say “come in,” rather loud I might add.  Don’t knock again and open the door before I respond to you a second time.  Then, when I whisper to you “Could you please fill the soap in the bathroom?” take a freaking hint.  As if the man sleeping next to me with a blanket over his head isn’t clue enough.  Also, after I ask you if you wouldn’t mind closing the door behind you as “Code Dr. Red” blares over the PA system in the background, do not fill the napkin dispenser in my room and SLAM it 4 times in an attempt to close it.  Even I saw that you had the thing too full.  So your real problem was not that it needed to slam closed.  You could also be nice like all of the other housekeeping people too.  There, I’ve said my piece.

Awesome hubby headed home to finish the paint job on the baby room and he did an AMAZING job.  I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  We’re way closer to ready for baby than we were 8 weeks ago.  Sure, there is still a lot to be done like baby laundry, assembling all of the baby stuff, steam cleaning the carpets in the baby room, etc.  But really, we are well on our way and some of the stuff that still needs to be done can wait if it absolutely has to.  Though, I’m sure it is NO FUN to assemble a baby swing.  The directions are hard enough to follow on a full night of sleep.  I don’t want to imagine figuring it all out in a sleep deprived stupor.  Check out the room!  We still need the monkey decals for the walls, but that will come later.  The rocker recliner hasn’t made it into the room yet but that will come once the carpets are steam cleaned and dry.  The little shelf that is currently next to the crib will go next to the rocker recliner.

I have a couple more hats done now too.  These two are actually custom requests.

The non stress test went well today…until literally 2 minutes before I was going to come of.  I had a stinkin contraction and they made me start all over, which means sitting on the monitor for 20 minutes.  Baby reacted well to the contraction which is good.  His heart rate dipped a little but it was at 120 which actually isn’t too bad.  I may complain about it, but I really don’t mind the non stress test.  I actually look forward to them because I get to hear my boy and it gives me peace of mind that he is doing OK in there.

  1. The room looks awesome! Can’t wait to see you tomorrow, when I have cash to get out of the garage! : )

  2. Sorry about the room service chick. As the song goes, “there’s one in every crowd”.

    I love the room stripe. Kayvan did a great job! He’s very talented!

    I also LOVE the green girl hat and flower. You make it sooo difficult to love just one! I’m gonna be a repeat customer! lol
