Okay I am the most chilled out person- some may call it lazy when it comes to neatness and organisation.
I am due today and before now haven't really done much nesting but today i suddenly got the urge, nobody could believe it as it is so out of character lol
Anyways, I spent five hours straight rearranging furniture, cleaning, polishing etc
I'm slowly getting there. Today I cleaned my kitchen, washed everything, then got caught up with all of the laundry. Not to sound like a slob haha, but that's not like me whatsoever. I'm usually a little slow with doing house work!
Location: Some island in the middle of nowhere, Alaska
I am!!! BAD!
OH has so much shyte that he insists on keeping in the closet all year round...including snowboarding gear, 4 hiking backpacks full of hiking gear, a tent, three sleeping bags, shovels, pool toys, fishing waist waders, fishing poles, etc. and we live in 1-bedroom apartment!!!!!!!!!! He has the option to put this junk in a shed we have out back...but no. He wanted to keep his BICYCLE in the living room but I put my foot down on that one real fast. I was on my hands and knees re-arranging the closet, when he popped in the door with a bunch of airplane GPS gear and snowboard shyte! He proceeded to dump his greasy, messy stuff on this $$$ area rug I bought last weekend!
OMG! I burst into tears!
It took him 4 months of nagging before he raised the bed so we could store more stuff for baby underneath it...because it was already STUFFED with his 4 giant gun cases...
Now whenever I see mess/unorganized junk in the house, I feel VERY overwhelmed and begin sobbing. Hahah...I was diagnosed with OCD at 14.....nesting has made it so much worse!
My boss has really benefitted from my nesting though...her office that's been a complete utter mess for the last 2 years is now completely organized. It took me a full 8 hours to clean it!
I'm areal clean person as it is so I can only imagine when I do start nesting it's going to be baddddd everything has to be spotless cleaned & packed away neatly or I get soo grumpy OH just laughs & tells me to relax as it's ok to not do housework for for one day just have a break but nope it has to be clean
Alaskagrown- Although you are overwhelmed by all your husbands stuff I couldn't help but think "what a lucky baby". Your OH has so much pass times and hobbies baby can share. I live in a small village in Ireland that doesn't offer much activities and I always feel bad for LO. Fishing, snowboarding etc sounds bliss. Good luck with evertrhing
staralfur- Ahhh i hope I am also going to be like your cousin and go tonight. Have a sweep scheduled for tomorrow but id like baby to come in his own time and not feel forced out. Thanks for reply.
