All Over the Place

I have so many things running through my head these days it really isn't funny. We are trying to tear down a building, my house is a disaster, I have felt terrible, I was annoyed with my in-laws this weekend and kind of still am, I am stressed about getting the nursery done, doing the baby registry and harvest will probably start between next week and the week after. GAH!!!! Let me just break it down and forgive me if I repeat things because frankly I have been doing that a lot.

The building was our neighbors, it was damaged in the storm in June. By damage I mean some siding but the structure is/was still sound. Because his insurance decided to total the building and since his insurance wasn't going to pay to take down the building he asked Matt and his dad if they wanted it. A 40x80 pole barn to store their equipment in, a place I can have my twin bed porch swing (saw it on Pin.terest knew I had to have it), a place to store the boat and less yard to mow. Sure, why not. Well, we weren't in a hurry to take it down until we find out the new building is coming in less than 2 weeks. So everything has been put on hold till we get that building torn down. Which means every other project is put on hold which leads to my next issue, the nursery and spare room.

Way back in July, if you remember I was all ambitious to paint the spare room so I could decorate that and then get started on the nursery. Well long story short it never happened and the room is still not finished and the nursery is still full of junk. Matt doesn't want me painting and quite frankly I don't know if I could paint even if I wanted too. He has promised me as of this morning that once the building is down he will start painting. I'm not holding my breath and will be ready to just hire it out and be done with it. I like to plan things out and this is just not going the way I feel that is should be. It is important to me to get this room done before we do the nursery because we will have a place to store most of the stuff that is in the nursery. Update as of last night-we are just going to hire it done.

This past weekend was fun, camping was fun until it rained Saturday night. However, what was not fun was dealing with a pissy MIL which made a pissy FIL. I also don't appreciate things being thrown back in my face and ungrateful people. That's enough of that matter it is over and done and Matt says he handled it. We did have the cake and it was very very yummy!

The registry makes me super nervous. I'm not sure where to go or what to do. Basically, my mom and I need to take a trip but finding time will be the hard part because harvest will be starting soon which means I will be working most weekends. I shouldn't stress but sometimes I find it hard not too.

Whew that is a lot of words that say basically nothing. So thanks for sticking with me as I ramble on and on.


  1. You'll find the time sometime, someway.

  2. So sorry that all of that is going on! As 'Lucky as Sunshine' will find the time! Somehow things always seem to manage to be taken care of :) If it makes you feel better...our nursery is also full of junk and unpainted! We have the colors chosen but that is as far as it has gone so far. It will get finished though, I know it will! Hopefully whatever went down with your MIL will diffuse and not be an issue is never easy to have a disagreement with someone in your spouse's family! Things will be okay, Megan! THEY WILL!! :)

  3. Oh, how overwhelming! I hope you get to cross things off your list soon. I live for crossing things off lists! Can you start a registry online for the not-so-hard stuff? Maybe getting a few things added would put you at ease?
