Everything taken out & cleaned (hand washed, washer/dryer, dishwasher)
Everything organized & labeled

Bedding made
Curtains made
Painting decor (still working on all of that now)
Clothing washed, folded, or hung in closet

General home cleaning:
crown molding

Girls' closet:
shelves moved
clothing combined (we put them in one room)
Bed painted
Drawers organized & clothing cleaned out & stored or passed down

I still feel like I have so much to do...but all the little things I have been putting off are now getting done.
Is it crazy that this would be me in my normal mode? but now that I'm sore and tired I'm "nesting" less than I normally would.

Re: Anyone obsessively nesting?

i thought I was really crazy nesting until I read everyone else's lists!! I've been working a lot these past two weeks so I've been too exhausted to really get much done. We moved DS into his new big boy bed in his new room so I emptied out the nursery of all this stuff and have organized the closet to include the new baby's stuff. The dresser is now full of the new baby's clothes, that just need to be washed (I'm waiting on washing them for a few more weeks but it's so hard to wait!!). I've cleaned out the pantry and all the cupboards in the kitchen, the linen closets, the bathroom cabinets, and set up the bookshelf in the living room to finally unpack the boxes of books that have been in the basement since we moved in over a year ago

I hope your renovations get done soon. I cannot imagine going through major renos right now whew! Your last sentence made me chuckle.
