Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
Good morning, ladies!! I hope we all had fabulous weekends and are feeling great! :)
Question of the week: Are you nesting yet? Do you have the urge to clean and organize everything in sight?
I'm doing well. Just got back from a 10 day vacation out east. Feel nice and relaxed!
Funny you mention nesting cuz I just finished cleaning the bathroom, doing the dishes, wiping down the counters. And all this after I helped my DH drive to our broken down pick up truck to get it towed, and picked up a package that had come in the mail. I feel so productive today! I'm definitely having way more energy. And all I want to do is get this house ready for the baby BEFORE I am unable to help at all! We've mapped out a "to do list" for the next two months on all the little projects that we HAVE to get done pre-baby. The goal is to have them all done by the end of October.
No nesting yet- I still have no energy and only occasionally have days without nausea, so I'm still curled up in bed all day. I'm sure DH is looking forward to the nesting stage ;)
Hi Smashdance and fellow Closers!
I have the urge to deep clean the apartment about twice a week (not that I always do it). More than anything, I want to go through our things and get rid of stuff we don't need, but I really can't find anything more to get rid of. So yes, I feel like I am really feathering the next right now. :-)

I think it's kicked in a bit for DH and I. We did some cleaning and organizing this past weekend and now I want to go through all my kitchen cabinets and closets and get rid of stuff we don't need. We also need to rent a cleaner and do our carpets, they look so dingy and gross and i can't stand it. I also can't wait to move my craft room into our other spare room to make it into the nursery. We're going to wait until we find out what we're having before we do that and get some other stuff done before hand.
Yes and no.A few weeks ago, I went though our entire apartment and purged everything "extra" that was in the way and that we weren't using, and I found some ways to save space... I eliminated the entire desk/office area in our living room and moved the computer set up over where the TV is, and plugged it in to use the TV as the monitor. We only have a small two bedroom apartment with no opportunity to upsize for at least another year, so space is at a premium. For now, we still have an extra guest double bed set up in the baby's room, but only until after the shower. We will keep the mattress and set it up in the living room if we ever have overnight guests who can't afford a hotel room (we can't afford to get a pull-out couch right now either).
Because I've been off work, I've been cleaning and tidying a little more than usual out of pure boredom, but I don't get the urge to organize everything, or repaint or redecorate everything. We have already started decorating the nursery, but that's it.
Hi - nope, no nesting yet but that is because our house is underway with major renovations and we're living in a temporary apartment. We only move back in in December, but everything will be shiny and new just for LO.
But in the mean time I've started doing making a quilt for his bed, and I've bought cute vinyl stickers of farm animals for the walls.
