That's right. 23 weeks and already nesting. It's like I can't get things clean enough. Already this morning, I bundled up the two bags worth of garbage overflowing in the kitchen, took out the recycling, scrubbed the floor around the garbage can, unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, washed and folded two loads of laundry (including crib sheets), put new sheets on both cribs, vacuumed the entire upstairs, used the vacuum attachment on both bathroom floors, Clorox wiped two highchairs, put all of my and Charlie's clothes away and took all miscellaneous toys back to the boys room that had walked all over the upstairs.
And it's only 11:36am.
I wish I could stop there. Yesterday I cleaned out my sock and underwear drawers (why is that such a feeling of accomplishment?!) organized my spice rack and refilled all the jars to the tops, wiped all the lint and extra detergent off the washer and dryer, organized my Tot School supplies and cleaned out both travel toiletry bags. Are we going on a trip any time soon? No.
I have big plans for my afternoon too - sweeping and vacuuming the downstairs, rotating toys, figuring out how to disassemble my double stroller to wash the seats (any ideas?!), make dinner, walk to Aldi with the boys, organize and file ideas from my parenting magazines and scrapbook. It's like the energy is never ending during the day and every time I look up there's something else calling my name. I was actually fantasizing about carpet powder this morning. You know, the stuff that you sprinkle on, vacuum up and it leaves your house smelling wonderfully fresh? I need to have it!
I know that nesting is normal, but when I looked back on this post, it was only a week before I had the boys, not 17 weeks! Oh my gosh, only 17 weeks to go... but there's so much to clean!
What weirdo nesting actions have you caught yourself doing in the past? Please tell me I'm not alone!
