Sunday, the day of Nest

Sunday, Aug. 27:

JP and I are nesting today.

He moved furniture and cleaned the carpets and rugs. I dusted the blinds and washed all the window treatments.

He moved a lot of (his) clutter out of the hallway. I vacuumed the upholstery and fluffed throw pillows in the dryer with anti-allergen stuff.

He set a night stand -- finished and matched with the dresser he just did -- in the baby's room. I ran around the glass and door frames with some cleaner.

At one point, I thought maybe my water broke. But, um, I guess I was just sweating. After all this nesting activity.

I nested for weeks...or maybe it just seemed like weeks.

Of course, I also was pregnant during the dog days of summer and frequently found myself slurping water from my bathroom sink faucet. In my defense, the water in the bathroom sink runs muuuuch cooler than the kitchen sink.

And I was too huge and tired to walk allllll the way to the kitchen for a glass of water!

And technically, my nesting never went away. I'm the cleanest and tidiest now than I ever was pre-baby!

Good luck!!
