I have been anxiously awaiting for that pregnancy “nesting” stage to set it. That supposed time when one get lots of energy and starts organizing and homemaking like mad. Since I have been so tired, lots of things have gotten undone or maybe I should say not done.
I was going about my morning yesterday changing sheets for laundry day when the nesting started. I thought I was just being diligent when I heard that little voice in my head, “hey, maybe you should wash all of your bedding even the bedskirt and go ahead and wash those pillows will you?” Then I realized all the things that had been stored under my bed, including a small dog’s worth of dog hair. So I cleaned out under the bed, then I heard the voice again, “you are going to vacuum under there right, and by all means you better get the mop out, and hey, maybe you should change exchange the art in here with another room, and while you are cleaning, go ahead and scrub the shower…and that shower curtain needs to be bleached and machine washed.” SIX loads of laundry later I realized that this nesting thing was WAY out of control.
As I was making my bed last night at 11pm I forgot that I had washed Rad’s pillow and when I took it out of the dryer, it was QUITE lumpy. I tried to fluff it but it just wouldn’t transform back to it’s old self. I mentioned it to Gress earlier in the day and asked him what I should do about Daddy’s pillow. He said, “I know mom, we can put a rock in the pillowcase and when Daddy lays down, he will just feel the rock.” WOW, that was actually a great idea. So as I laid down last night, I anxiously awaited Rad putting his head on this dryer beaten lumpy pillow (minus the rock). After a long day he was so tired and looking forward to sleep. He immediately said, “what happened to my pillow?” All I could do was blame it on the nesting.
All that to say, maybe things were better when all I did was lay on the couch and eat bon bons. 🙂
We are off to the farm today to meet the newest members of the farm..two donkeys. It will be an adventure for sure!
