Yes, I'm posting at dreamwidth. I plan to keep posting at LJ as a crosspost, but I really don't feel like my journal being in the middle of Russian political fu. ::shrug:: 'Course, I let the "paid" portion of the experience lapse ages ago, anyway, so... At this point I'm still reading both and don't really care where you read/comment/etc, so ::shrug:: guess it's kind of a moot point.

So... life... let's see...

Pregnancy Yep, still pregnant, now with even fewer symptoms. Which, honestly, is a bit disconcerting, as at this point I could really just be pudgy - if I hadn't seen the ultrasound I'd be in some serious disbelief. Am really wishing we'd get to the kicking stage. (And I know I'll regret saying that, but for right now...)

House The kitchen is *basically* done (there's a little tile-grout cleanup that needs to happen where we had to regrout a few spots, and there are a few spots that the trim needs a bit of wood putty and paint in the nail holes, and of course there are the curtains, but yeah. Which of course means we're starting on a new project...
Attic conversion! Our house has 3 bedrooms right now, a master on the first floor and 2 upstairs. We use the master as my sewing/craft room, along with some bookcases etc, and (previously) Nick's computer desk (he got rid of the desktop, so it's just a desk / filing area for bills and stuff now). Which means we sleep upstairs in one of the smaller bedrooms - which is really too small for our kingsize bed if one REALLY wants to be honest and the 3rd is the guest room. Needless to say, this is getting shuffled soon. I'd still like to have a guest room - and/or if Podling ever has a sibling it'll need a bedroom - which leads us to start pondering the walk-in attic. It's over the master bedroom, so it's much larger than you would think (we're thinking the finished size will be something like 8.5 x 16 of useable space, with some storage nooks on the edges). And the joists are already built to support it, so the actual work will be significantly easier than the kitchen. (Really, ANYTHING is easier than the kitchen, we definitely jumped in the deep end there.) Maybe we'll even be more prompt about posting pictures. Once that's done, the guest room (with a new floor) gets to be the nursery, and our current room gets to be the guest room. Yay. (Might even move some of the bookcases up. It'll make the sewing room a bit more open.)

Coronation was lovely, and I'm really looking forward to the Baronial Work Day at the end of the month. (It'll be fun. No, really, painting the list fence is fun! ::end Tom Sawyer Mode::) But really I think I'm focusing on Pennsic right now - there are LOTS of people going, we MIGHT even hit the 40 for 40 target (WINDMASTERS NEEDS YOU! ::end recruiting mode::), and I had (err, stole) the Best Idea Ever for the Baroness's tea.
