Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Way to Early to Be Nesting

O.k. this is way to early for me to be nesting but since Friday that is what I feel like I have been doing. We went to Omaha Friday afternoon to pick up some bunk beds, so I could get the 2 year old and 4 year old settled before the baby comes. Well on the way home I was looking at our van and decided that I was sick of it looking disgusting. So when we got home around 8:00 p.m. I told my husband I was going to clean out the van. He said, "That would be fine with me because I am going to have that older girls help me put the bed together." I asked him if he would please take the seats out of the van so I could clean the seats and the car seats. I don't know what happened but I was like a crazy woman in that van. Everything is spotless and shiny and looks brand new.

The next day I started my next task which was bring all the clothes upstairs from the basement for the two little ones and getting their room organized. This also required me to go through my stuff because my husband and I were using the guest bedroom as our closet room. Well today I finished that task and everything looks pretty and in order and I even got rid of three bags of junk. Yeah!!

Tomorrow I am headed to the basement to the big girls clothes and get rid of some of their unnecessary things. I feel so energized it is actually a little scary since I still have a little over 7 weeks to go. Man if I can get all this done now can you imagine what I will be doing when I am really nesting. I can't wait.

Believe me I am not complaining I just can't believe I feel this good and I am going to keep getting as much done as I can while I feel like this.

Hey lady, I think all of are nesting. I know that I have guest coming, but I have been cleaning other areas of the house. I am getting ready to put in book cases and getting rid of junk. I just took a whole bunch of homeschool stuff to the Ebay store and I got rid of a laundry basket full of books. I have done the same thing. I think it is the weather. It not so damp. Talk to ya later. Tanya

Heather said...

Um. You HAVE ordered the birthing kit, right? Sounds like Seventh Heaven may be coming sooner than you think:)

If you need ANYTHING...CALL!

Love you!

Well, I would take Heather's advice and make sure you have the birthing kit handy ~just in case~ you are a little further along than everyone expects. You don't want to have baby #7 on the blue fluffy rug without something to catch him!!! LOL!

Have fun - and by the way - it must be the time of year or something because I'm much the same kind of things - and I'm not pregnant (I don't think?!?!?)

Well The basement is done and we are moving on to the hall closet.

Heather and Lori - I have not ordered that birth kit yet but I am thinking I am going to be doing that pretty soon. I just get so wrapped up in the organizing that I don't want to take the time to do anything else. Not even feed my kids.

ok, I tried to comment a moment ago and it did not take. Anyway, nesting is in my blood, I am always finding junk and tossing it!!!!!!! Order the birthing kit, and then walk around and look at all of the unclutterd closets!!! Wonderful, love nana C
