Yes! Like a maniac! I pick a project every other day and work on it for two or more days (depending on how lazy i am). Like those annoying collections behind the dresser inside the walk in closet...im even going through DD's toys to see if there are any that can/need to be thrown out- i just feel like i dont want anything in the house that is not needed.<br>
I also want to paint the living room :)

I'm not really nesting yet. I'm looking around and seeing lots of things I'd like to do, but I just don't have the energy. I am planning on cleaning out my bedroom though to make room for the changing table where I'm going to put my hideously excessive collection of cloth diapers. Right now they are just strewn all over my bedroom floor, as well as various spots around the house. Dh has forbidden me to buy anymore until the baby outgrows the ones we have now.

Not even close yet. I am so busy w/the holidays, birthday parties, and every day life that w/my feeling yucky still, I haven't even thought about nesting. Although when the third trimester hits, I'll start driving everyone around here nuts w/my nesting. I'll give my husband all these tasks to do, and he'll say "I don't understand why we need to do this now." And my response always is, "You don't have to understand. You just have to do it!" That usually works. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

organizing??? I wish. *sigh* so does DH. I am terribly disorganized in this disaster of my half of the office. DH's side is perfectly organized and neat. Mine gets that way and then...I suck at maintaining it. Plus it's all my art and scrap stuff. This room is my organized mess - only not really because today I freaked out because I couldn't find my wax crayons (art ones, not crayola). Still haven't found them.<br><br>
Maybe some org IS in order...

I WANT TO!! The only thing I've been able to do is clear out my closet and put non-pg clothes in bins to make room for maternity. Our kitchen is in the middle of a major remodel. My fridge is in my dining room. We cook out of the microwave. Our new range and sink are in boxes in the living room. I'm living in major chaos!<br><br>
After this is done, hopefully in a month, we will start on our upstairs, which we're turning into a master suite. We may just hire this out, just to save our sanity. Then we will paint our current bedroom for dd, move her in there, and set up her room for the baby, which will be the easiest part. And really, only the upstairs needs to be done before the baby comes.<br><br>
But I want to make lists! And freeze food (this was my obsession last time). And organize my bathroom! And wash baby clothes! I actually feel like I'm not really having a baby, this is all a dream, and I think it's because I can't do any of these things!

For sure... it has slowed down a bit, but a few weeks ago i was on a major Get Rid of Crap spree. It didn't necessarily last very long, and we had friends here for 5 weeks (thankfully, on their way now) so it was tough to get anything done. But we finally moved out a nasty old couch that was literally driving me bonkers and rearranged our livingroom so it's more open and I've fallen in love with our house all over again. I have several running lists of nooks, crannies and shelves to organize.<br><br>
My 30th birthday is 4 days after Christmas, and you know what i've asked for? A bookshelf!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> It's the only thing I want... to get our books out of boxes once and for all!
