Please excuse the childish drawings but drawing on the computer is tough. Here is the Nursery Plans . Really not too much to do- Paint frames, shelves and walls, buy curtains and blinds, recover cork boards and chair cushion.
The 2 squares are fabric covered cork boards to put Junebugs art etc which will bring colour to the wall. The curtain covers the closet as bi-fold doors pinch little and big fingers.
The storage unit is being built by Jean and Sandy and will have pull-out bins for clothes, diapers and the big bins for toys.

Saturday February 21st,
Today we grabbed some paint chips for the nursery ands thank god we did. The colours we originaly picked that looked bright and cheery at home depot looked dark and dingy once at home. We will pick a slightly lighter brighter colour that I would have expected. Adam and I installed the latern night light today and it looks awesome, the photos just don`t do it justice. I cannot wait to take a trip to ikea to get the remainder of our stuff. I am waiting on the fabric which I will get there so that the rest can get done.
Sunday February 22nd,
3am- Can't sleep. My tummy and back have been hurting (mildly I might add so don't worry) for the last 2 hours so I have gotten up and decided to be productive. I've just posted 2 ads on the Victoria freecycle group looking for picture frames to use in the nursery and a outdoor bench that swings so that we can enjoy the summer when the baby is born. Freecycle is pretty amazing. I post wanted ads pretty sparingly on Freecyle but people have always come through. One man's trash is another's treasure.
I have just seen the errors of my ways. I am changing the "cheap labour" section of the Junebug Registry as some of the stuff need to be done before the baby is born and seeings how Adam and I can't look at the comments there is no way for us to know if someone has offered. So if you have offered please email us- details are in the registry.
Later this morning we will try the book sale again. Yesterday the line up went all around the block so we opted to wait for Sunday. We went for a drive to Duncan instead to explore what exactly a Super Centre Walmart is seeings how they have been in the process of building one in Victoria since we moved here.
From what I gather from my brief visit it is
a) a much bigger lay out (more tiring to walk)
b) has the same old crap (WHAT! peanutbutter is 3.95$ How many can we fit in the car!)
c)Has meat and fresh produce of questionable origin (Does any body know what type of "meat" is in the 0.98$ per 100grm Montreal smoked meat at the deli? We bought $5 worth.... why does my tummy hurt?)
d) totally not worth driving 1hr+ to save a couple bucks in return for going against my beliefs (Going to the one down the road- sadly that is a different matter)
I am thinking I better try sleep again so that I have the strenth to fight off the grannies at the book sale. goodnight/morning
