One week closer

So Resa and I are getting ever closer to finishing the new house. This week they finished installing the hardwood floors, finsihing up some of the electrical work, did some more landscaping, fired up the generator and installed the mailbox.

Dining Room floors. Antique Reclaimed Heart Pine herringbone with a Wild American Cherry border. The paneling is covered in plastic because the walls are getting a faux finish.

Living Room Heart Pine Flooring

Seth's Garage with the new lighting (he is excited about this)

Montana Adventures

Seth and I went to Montana with his family. They all stayed from Friday, January 30 through Saturday, February 7. My plan was to fly home Tuesday. However, that did not happen! I woke up Saturday (the day after we arrived) with pain in my lower right side. By late afternoon, I was about in tears (ok....was in tears). The pain had spread to my front and I could hardly stand up straight. Seth, Melissa, Bobby and I went to the hospital. It turned out I had a kidney stone! The pain was giving me very small contractions and my potassium levels were low, so they decided to keep me overnight to monitor me. I had never stayed in a hospital as a patient. The hospital was quite nice (brand new) and they put me in a birthing room (not where you want to be at 26 weeks), but it was very comfortable. They released me the next morning. I was well taken care of by Seth and his family. They fed me cocktails of cranberry juice (served in a wine glass to make it "fun"). I finally passed the stupid stone on Wednesday. I really wouldn't wish a kidney stone on my worst enemy...especially if they're pregnant! I ended up staying in Montana
until Saturday, so at least I got a few days of the beautiful scenery!
