I'm nesting. But it's hard work.
So, I've been running around like a crazy woman lately and am giving myself a much needed house arrest. Except for a few nights out that we have obligations to attend in the next few weeks, I am taking it easy. But I still feel the need to fluff the home a bit and get ready for baby.
It's exhausting, I tell you. Especially with these other people crowding my nest.
I twittered: nesting. but the other people in this nest are seriously annoying me and Antique Mommy tweeted back: That's why the mama bird eventually kicks their feathery little butts out.
So true, so true, my wise friend.
My day has consisted of putting in a load of laundry, carrying one upstairs, looking at it, deciding to lie down on the bed while I look at it, then close my eyes for just a little bit. Then I wake shortly thereafter because the boys are all eating popsicles in their bedroom on the top bunk, Carter is humming quite loud and quite irritatingly the Indiana Jones theme song, or the second showing of Fire House Dog today has ended. (Or all of the above.)
So then I get up and fold that laundry basket and consider finally organizing the baby's clothes. I make it through two boxes and sort them by size. Another lie-down-on-the-bed session sounds so much more appealing than putting them all in the drawers right there in front of me. So, it's like my body doesn't even give me a choice. My head soon hits the pillow again and soon one or two children appear as close as possible to my face requesting another popsicle or another Lego man needing his hair put on or another showing of Fire House Dog. (Or all of the above.)
In the meantime I check my email and the size of my inbox quickly crashes my iPhone. For good reason. Offer up a gift card to Target and they will come.
And now, I'm totally planning to make something healthy for dinner and then really get back to those baby clothes. It's not like I mean to put it off. I love looking through each and every piece. It's divine. But so is my head hitting that pillow...
