I don't normally ever nest But all the sudden, I feel the need to systematically clean every last inch of my house. I mean I started with the laundry room I'm cleaning carpets and baseboards and...Well, lets just say I'm scaring DH with my out of character cleaning SO anyone else gotten a cleaning bug? And can I tell you how not fun it is to be inspired to deep clean in the midst of fits of extreme nausea Apparently, its clean, wanna puke, clean, wanna puke, on permanent repeat

Maybe I have the nesting bug a bit...we are having troubles litter training our cat's kittens. The kittens are ready to go to new homes, so we are looking for them homes. But in the meantime, I've got to go around cleaning up after them, and finally today I scrubbed the whole carpet by hand trying to keep it from stinking.

Talk about scrub/wanna puke/scrub...ugh. So I really hope we can find homes for them very very soon.

I did overdo it today, now I'm feeling a little bit crampy with a back ache, no spotting tho.

DS's room had the pee smell - Obstinate PLer who decides often to pee in random objects in his room. I got in there and scrubbed his carpets too in hopes of removing the smell.

I really don't like to take the time to clean but yep, I've started cleaning. My house needs a good spring cleaning anyway. I am hoping that we'll be buying a house in the next several months too.

Yep! My house is in the beginning of the process of getting a major organizational/de-cluttering overhaul!
It's long overdue, and this pg is kicking my rear into gear.

I want to homeschool DD for 1st grade this year, and I KNOW that I can't do it with how disorganized my life currently is, so....here we go!

It does help that it's starting to finally look like spring (except for the snow we had yesterday ).

I love hearing the birds singing in the morning! :

Please send the cold weather down. I am sick of the 80 degree weather down here. I also have been cleaning things a lot and somewhat nesting.

No, but I think my husband is nesting.

Saturday, he organized two closets, and today he did the laundry. He was greatly rewarded.

This is our first and obviously we're not due for a very long time, but I already want to buy everything. What am I going to do for the next 6 months?

I'm busy researching the best CD's etc. Any suggestions for newbie CDers? Husband not entirely convinced.

I always do tons of nesting in the beginning and then I "direct" nesting at the end. I usually have hyperemesis so I basically am in bed throwing up for 9 months. I start going crazy when the test is positive....I made 2 batches of extra meatballs with dinner tonight. I only have about 2-3 weeks before I start puking 70 times a day.

I am not at all nesting, but wish I were. In fact, I'd love to have the impetus to get off of the couch as I am so tired.

I like the idea of the husband nesting...maybe I can convince DH that it's normal to nest and if he's not nesting then something must be wrong

Walking in the light with DH, DD (11/08), DS (4/10) , four dogs, and one insouciant cat.

Not nesting, but the house sure could use a good cleaning, and there are a few painting jobs that need to get done! (We moved last December, haven't finished painting yet.)

I'm not going to buy anything (other than books) for a while. I kind of want to see how *little* we can get away with. We just got finished buying some needed furniture, so neither of us wants to go furniture shopping for a long time!
