Week in Review

A day late with the Week in Review; I tend to think of the end of the weekend as the end of the week, but by the time we got back from the house last night, all I wanted to do was go to bed.

House stuff: progress is being made, though not quickly enough for us to be finished before we move in this weekend. The bathroom is basically done (needs paint and the wall lights up, is all) and looks great—we're really thrilled at how it came out. The upstairs is almost completely painted, and we ought to be able to finish that before we move in. However, it does look like we'll be wallpapering the stairs, painting the downstairs, and refinishing the built-in bookshelves after we move in. The upstairs is the most important, though, as it's easier to work around the downstairs furniture.

We will also have a nice big new bed on this Friday (assuming they can get it up the stairs) and a new stove (with its fancy glass top and convection oven—Sears was having a sale) on next Tuesday. The couch and end table will take another month or two. (This is what we did Saturday: marathon shopping spree.) Also, I'd like to note that carrying a quilt, blanket, and two sets of sheets for a king bed, by yourself, through the length of the Crossgates Mall on a Saturday night, is not a heck of a lot of fun. Just, you know, for your information.

Work stuff: really busy week last week, and this week isn't looking any better. Lots of trial preparation (mostly talking to witnesses) last week for a trial starting February 18; this week I have lots and lots of paperwork to do—trial stuff and a whole bunch of things that are due at the end of this month and sprinkled throughout February.

Also, did I mention we were moving at the end of the week? Ack.
