Family room renovations

We've decided to drywall the family room! We figured we'd do it before finishing the kitchen off, since to properly finish the kitchen we need more drywall! :) I'm so impressed at how great it already looks.. and it's not even mudded yet! Shaun has been putting in a couple hours a night after work and made a lot of progress in just a weeks time. The whole back room is drywall now!! Mudding starts tonight! Painting should be next week (or maybe by THIS weekend?? hehee) We're on a timeline now, we have about 5 weeks to finish the family room AND the kitchen (which still just needs one piece of trim, and the counter ledges) I told my mom my painting plans yesterday and she said.. umm didn't you paint when you were pregnant with Dresden? I said, yeah, mom.. but I hardly doubt that my painting last April killed him. It's one of those things, I guess.. like Shaun not wanting me to drink apple cider (AS if I would before September ANYWAY!) and me being afraid to do a whole list of things I did last year toward teh end of pregnancy, that are probably stupid - but better safe than sorry, right? So maybe my mom will be painting!? haha Even if she does, I think i'll at least paint the trim --outside of course for proper air circulation.
Here are a few pics of Shaun hard at work! ;)

Looks great! I completely understand about being cautious with painting. Oh how I wish I was there to help since I LOVE to paint. It certainly isn't worth the risk!! The family room really does look great with drywall.

It looks great. Won't it be wonderful when it's all done.
Why don't you just rest! Let others do all the work.

I don't think I ever realized it wasn't dry walled! hehe!

looking good Mr. Ryan, and the drywall too, hehe! As for the painting, let someone else take care of that, while you give direction of course! Put your feet up and relax!

I haven't been managing to comment recently so I'm just catching up a bit. Busy, busy ... and not long now. Wooooo. Oh and I'm all for pregnant ladies being in a supervisory capacity :)
