28 Weeks and Nesting Like Crazy!
Time is speeding by–like really speeding by. I am now two-thirds into my pregnancy and getting ready for everything to happen.
What does that mean for my family? (Poor family…pray for them) It means I’m nesting. Yay! (Well yay for me)
Actually, any excuse that I can have to shake down the house I will. Mr C has been feeling the brunt of my changes though (since I’m not supposed to climb, lift, or look longingly at the top of my bookshelf–to dust).
- So far Mr C has taken down and cleaned the venetian blinds. Why? Because I took one look at them and knew they needed to be dust free.
- We reorganized the bookshelf in the living room. Instead of having it standing up, it’s now on its side and we just need to install “L brackets” to keep the shelves in place. Now, I know we could have just purchased a bookshelf that does what we want, but who has money to waste like that? The bookshelf was supposed to be hers so now we are making it easy for her to access. (That and she has too many books for the bottom 3 shelves.)
- Reorganizing the kitchen. I want to make as much room as possible by getting things off my counters. Which means installing additional shelves in our kitchen. We don’t have a real pantry, but we are working on making more room with what we got.
- Making the bathroom sparkle. I don’t know what’s up with me and the bathroom but each pregnancy I end up doing a deep cleaning of the bathroom–even if it was already clean. Eh, but you know what I say, a bathroom can’t be too clean.
And to be honest, my list can go on and on. For Mr. C’s sake I hope that the nesting period calms down a bit, but who knows the future right? I’m getting such a high out of cleaning that I just want to do more (even though I’m told to sit down and let him do it).
Yup, he’s going the extra mile during these trying times *sips my very vanilla soy milk with my feet up while watching Mr. C work*
So in the next couple days if you read posts is a about cleaning, shopping, or saving money. It’s just that time of the year for me.
Seriously, what is the craziest things you’ve done while you were nesting?
