Nesting

Have YOU begun the crazed cleaning/organizing yet?
I've been feeling the urge lately, but it really kicked up a notch this weekend. Friday night I suddenly found myself on my hands and knees scrubbing out my refrigerator(that really didn't LOOK dirty, but it felt like it to me ). Saturday I felt like I needed to sew every bit of fabric I had available and went NUTS sewing for my older kids until I ran out of some supplies and had to stop, but proceeded to cut out five more projects for when I DID get more of the supplies I needed.
All day yesterday I busted tush washing every bit of laundry in the house, then suddenly realized my living room carpet was gross(it felt that way, anyway). So I spent an hour after the kids were in bed steam-cleaning.
Wondering what is going to hit me today that I simply MUST DO OR GO MAD!

Re: Nesting

I sort of have in that I'm making progress on my list in a big way. But it's really just a matter of having a lot more time and energy now that i'm done work. It snowed like crazy yesterday and that kept me in... got my new blinds up in my room and the baby's. One of my cats passed away last week too not exactly unexpected but sooner then anyone thought so I've been cleaning away his things (my cats don't share stuff) because it was just making me sad to look at it all.

Not the manic energy fueled stuff they tell you happens... but at least I'm accomplishing stuff.

Re: Nesting

I just hit the nesting stage. My husband hates it when I get it. All things in the house that haven't been used in at least a year get donated or tossed. I've been through the kids things and have to wait until baby is born in May to have a garage sale and get rid of some clothes, etc. I was hoping to find out sex at 20 week appt, but baby was shy. Now I have to store things a few weeks more until He/She arrives and lets me complete that part of my nesting.

Re: Nesting

I would like to start getting things out... but we don't have the room yet so I have to wait. DH has been planning to get the room built for DD downstairs (she'll move down, DS3 will move from our room to her's) over spring break - that's the last week of March, so I'll be 37 weeks. Not sure if that's too late or not! Only time will tell, lol!
Since March came he's suddenly realized how close we're getting, though, so I'm not sure he'll wait until spring break to move the kids

I didn't do anything before 37 weeks for DS3, though, and was totally fine - went to 41+4!

Re: Nesting

No. We are renovating our "weekend" house, and are probably moving out of our "work" house in a few months, so everything is a complete disaster. I'm not even going to bother.

Re: Nesting

still no real nesting here.

but realized we probably should get some things out, so DH installed the bucket bases in our cars and I need to get the swing out of the garage and put the crib back together and wash the bucket stuff.

maybe next week....................... lol

Re: Nesting

Argh. Sorting lego with the boys - I suppose that will quench some of the nesting urges... but not as helpful in the "getting ready for baby" way as I'd like!
