Renovations 2.0

Another short post is here! I just want to alert you, Dear Reader, that major changes are set to happen chez moi. Just as we thought we had the nursery under control, a baby girl joined us and now we’ve decided to change everything. Being home for so much time with our current faux-slate (vinyl) floors has made me wish them gone even more than I have wished for a two-bedroom abode. The upside of being home so much is being able to send emails to all sorts of home improvement folks. The downside is similar. On this coming Tuesday, the nice peeps that put in our bedroom floors are scheduled to come and start are new Bamboo-You project: horizontal bamboo flooring to cover all of our first floor. We’ll see how this goes.

We’re also in the slow-moving process of deciding to stay put in the condo for a few more years, which means we intend to put our bedroom downstairs and move Baby Girl’s room into our current room. We’ve asked a contractor to give us a bid on enlarging a closet downstairs and remodeling the small three-quarters bath that is already there. Not surprisingly, we’re more impatient than the contractor so here we sit, two weeks later, still waiting for his bid. C’est la vie.

    Isn’t it amazing how crowded things get the minute a baby arrives? Your renovation plans sound great. Can’t wait to see the end results.

    I know. They’re so little but they come with so many accessories! After putting the car seat in the car, I understood why many people think they need a bigger car when they have a kid. We had to move the passenger seat forward just so it would fit!

Sleep in safety. Sleep without stress. Sleep without worry. Things children all over the world should be able to do. But those kids who have set foot on this soil after bearing untold abuses and have asked for asylum from us—literally begged us for help, throwing themselves on our mercy—have been tossed aside and, I imagine, can’t sleep. . . . They’ve been treated not only like they’ve done something wrong (they haven’t), but treated in a way we don’t—or shouldn’t—treat any child in this country. We don’t put children in cages. We don’t make children sleep on floors. We don’t separate them from their families. In fact, when these things happen to children, we usually file criminal charges against the perpetrators. This must stop. . . . #stopthemadness #reunitefamilies #asylumseekers #choosekindness #hurryupmueller
My love. She loves to sleep on the floor. I swear: she has a bed. We have several. Couches too! But I get to see her like this every night and we both get to feel so safe . . . On the other hand, there are those who can’t feel safe at night bc of our country’s ridiculous policy. The #GOP has decided that the world’s current horrors weren’t enough that they needed to up the ante and add their own voice to the unending madness. And they did . . . Separating asylum-seeking mothers and fathers from their children. That’s the #GOPlegacy. Does it get more horrific?! People fleeing horrendous abuses, throwing themselves on our mercy and, instead of kindness, we shower them with incivility, treating them as criminals, stealing their children and tossing them in detention. Where is your soul, #GOP?! . . . #resist #impeachmentyesterday #impeachmentnow #bluewave #votethemout #noexcuse
