Gracie is a snuggler

I was at a conference most of last week and I must admit, it was nice to get out of the office. Although I am really enjoying my new office (it has a window!), I needed a bit of a break. Here’s the thing, though: I miss my dog when I’m away from home. I don’t mind not having to take her out, or having to clean her hair off of my toothbrush, or having her shove me out of the way when she thinks Aaron is about to give her a chicken liver, but I still miss her. I miss her snuggling in our bed, I miss her snoring, and I miss her warmth — and I mean that both literally and figuratively. How will it be when this baby girl gets here? Zoinks. I can’t imagine.

So, in the meantime, because I can’t really deal with all of the things I can’t imagine, I am in the process of trying to figure out more tangible things. For example, the nursery. Or the quasi-nursery-living room we currently have in mind. Turns out living in a one-bedroom condo has its disadvantages. I think, though, that our unorthodox floor plan (for a family in Madison, Wisconsin) is going to lead to some fun results. When I’m not busy being anxious about where everything is going to go, I’m excited to figure it all out and make it really neat. Wish me luck.

Oh! And any and all tips are appreciated!

    I so understand missing Gracie’s warmth and snoring. Maddie snores like a trooper, not quite as loud as Mike used to, but enough so that there is a pleasant rumble all night long. As for the baby’s “room”, with your creative talents I am sure that you will figure out a perfect solution. What exciting times.

    Thanks, Janey. I really appreciate the support. I’m nervous, but hopeful.

    And I would like some snuggle time with that little Maddie!

    I think that planning for the nursery will be so fun. And that Gracie better know that there is a new snuggle bug coming to town!
