So.... I have had a MAJOR need to nest this summer. As with all things this pregnancy, this need was as strong as the morning sickness, heartburn, and exhaustion. Nesting is a very real thing. I'm not sure if it's the desire to have a really clean house (which mine is not) or just to do the million things on your house list because life stops when a newborn shows up. I think it's the latter for me. Plus, I don't teach in the summer, so I go full force.
I have put up new curtains in my living room,
Painted, re-carpeted, and redecorated the nursery (yes, I bought a new crib and new bedding....selling old stuff. I'm being very frivolous this pregnancy). I've still got to figure out wall decor in here, so any of you little decorator friends can come help me do it right.
New slate floor in my master bath...after a plumbing mishap, it was in serious need of a switch. Glad to get rid of the 90's linoleum and carpet.
I even dusted the tops of these shelves....o.k. Bill did. But I supervised.
I re-carpeted the master bedroom, Quinn's room, the nursery and the living room. This is what that half of the house looks like when it is squished into the great room. Those are a few days I do not hope to relive!
So, will my little baby girl care. No. But I will. I feel good to be able to cross some projects off my list. Still have more to do! I start teaching next week, so I must be Super Woman in the next few days. Should be interesting. Wish me luck.
