Building a house that is. I've been pregnant 7 times, and there are some parts of each pregnancy that seem to repeat itself each time. At least for me. Remember that I'm really patient... or maybe that was my sister?? Anyway.
When I 1st find out that I'm pregnant, I feel excited, a bit overwhelmed, and I ask myself if I have what it takes to deal with another pregnancy.... When we decided to start building our house here in Finland, we were still finishing up our house that we built in Canada!!, so I had to ask myself if I was ready to do this allover again! There were trim pieces missing and of course, when you own a house, there are things you want to change and improve along the way.
When I'm pregnant I always try to think of new ways to make the pregnancy go faster, make it more fun, trying to look and feel my best... And each time I like to follow the baby's growth inside me. It's always fascinating! It's a miracle actually.
With our house, I keep making lists, writing things down, I kept changing things on the plans till I couldn't change it anymore... I talk to people about the progress, and then I get a bit stressed about feeling that people are on my back (even thou they are only curious) House or Pregnancy = same thing.
(when are you due? when are you moving in? Are you done yet? - Am I done yet???? Oh YES!!! I'm usually "done" waaaay before I'm supposed to be done... doesn't really matter what it is)
I guess one difference is that the baby I want OUT and with our house I want IN!! he, he...
Well. I have gone overdue 4 out of 7 times, and I can safely say that I feel "overdue" with our house! I get to a point when I really start to think that "It will NEVER happen!!!" "This baby will neeever come out!" Then I have a reasonable Hubby at my side, that reminds me that "I never heard of a baby that didn't come out!" And I sense that he really feels that "I never knew a family that moved over the ocean and built a house and never moved in to it!" (although that is far more likely to occur than the baby not coming out...)
All in all, I'm excited, stresses, tired... ready!!! I keep tossing and turning at night (as if I'm waiting for labour to start), and I feel like I can't settle down before we move!! Nesting instinct alright!! I'm so excited to start making our house our HOME!
Our kitchen is ..... NICE!!! Gotta get some pix and show it off. :)
well.... sooon I will announce "WE MOVED" and rest assured that there will be a happy dance following that announcement!
