A day in the life of . . .

The title for today’s entry seems appropriate since lately I only have been blogging about what is happening in my day-to-day existence. But since I have had little time for much else than that existence, it is really the only thing for me to blog about.

On the home/baby preparation front, I finally found a bed for Evangeline today. The other day I saw a new mattress and box springs at a little mattress store in a nearby town. It was out on the porch of the store as an “only one left display model.” It was a good deal, and Mark and I decided that it was worth it for something Evangeline will likely use until she is off to college. So, I stopped today to pick it up. Upon talking with the salesman, he said he had a used twin bed frame in the back if I wanted to see it. I agreed to go look, and when we walked in, I ruled out the one he was trying to sell me because he had a used off-white twin headboard and footboard in the room with a price tag of $12.50. So I bought that along with the accompanying rails. They delivered the frame and mattress set this evening, and Mark and I put it together for Evangeline. She is pleased. Ideally, I want to paint the head and footboards a true white, but for now, I am going to leave it as is with a little bit of touch up where it is scuffed. I am soooo tired of painting, and I am about out of energy for these extra chores. So the painting of the bed will wait until after the baby is a few months old.

I can’t stop with just the bed though. I also put a coat of polyurethane on the chest of drawers for the baby. All I have to do to it now is replace the hardware after I am finished cleaning it up. Probably tomorrow.

Finally, a t-ball/pitching machine game update. Mark and Evangeline took Nevin to his t-ball game tonight. Once again, the Minco team beat their opponents (the NewCastle Racers) with an impressive margin (Mark wasn’t sure of the score, he just knew our boys won by a lot). I took Calvin to his pitching machine game tonight. They lost, but it was a close game with a score of 6 – 5. The best part was Calvin scored tonight after hitting a pretty nice single. He hit another single, but he didn’t score because the team struck out before he made it beyond second base. He was really excited, as this is the first game he has had even one hit.

  1. I’m thrilled to hear that the Horne clan may finally produce an athlete or two. Evangeline’s day will come.

  2. Barb,
    Mark has suggested Ursinus before with other children. Since I vetoed it then, I assure you a feminized version is not in the future for our new little girl. But I laughed out loud as I tried to pronounce your version of the name 🙂

  3. Dawn,
    You’re right. I am working too hard.

    Barb,
    I am having a scheduled induction on May 8, unless by some miracle I go into labor sooner.
