Ok people, why don't we just call it as we see it. Nesting is just a nice way of saying you have a lot of crap to do! Cleaning, organizing, painting, and decorating are all of the things that get wrapped into this nice sounding term. In reality, I just don't think I have the nesting gene. I hate cleaning and only do it because it is a necessity. I am so anal that organizing one room turns into a week long event. Stuff ends up strewn all over the house since we have zero storage space and I can't figure out where to put the items I have evicted from said room. Painting stinks (literally and figuratively)! Decorating is the one thing I can muster any excitement for and even that is currently being thwarted by a disagreeing husband who wants to veto my choices for the big boy room without giving alternate suggestions.
To make matters worse, I have to "nest" for 2 kids this time around. I have lost "my" room to make way for big boy land. My crafting/sewing domain has been relocated to a tiny corner of our unused formal living room and is currently located under piles of stuff that used to be stored on a large shelving unit. I will have to find it shortly as I have to sew my bum off in the next couple of weeks to get ready for the Providence Open Market.
I have 11 1/2 weeks left to get all of this done...while working full time...chasing after a spirited 2 year old...and managing to keep the rest of the house from looking like Katrina just whipped through. Pray for my sanity. I'll keep you updated on my progress.
