I'm having a rough couple of days here, mostly because I'm a highly organized (bordering on obsessive) person and I'm panicking about all the things I want to get done before this baby arrives. I mean, check out the sidebar ticker--I have 8 weeks at the most!
I'm most worried about getting the nursery together, not because the baby will be sleeping in there necessarily, but because there's no way I'll have time to fix up the nursery once he/she arrives. Being with two kids alone all day is already freaking out my sense of order and timeliness in getting just the general stuff like meals and laundry done.
Thankfully the dresser and wardrobe have arrived; the wardrobe is in pieces all over the room, in the process of being put together. And the paint is here too, which I'm eager to get on the walls along with the wallpaper. The paint is from Yolo Colorhouse, which manufactures gorgeous, eco-friendly colors with low VOCs. I went with Stone .04, a soothing light gray.
I really just want to sit back, relax, and enjoy the last few weeks of this pregnancy. But of course, the nesting instinct is making me insane, wanting to re-caulk our horrible bathtub, sew burp cloths, finish the mobile I started making, sort and wash baby clothes, and de-gunk the fridge. There are too many things on my mental to-do list. What's the most crazy thing that you've done as a result of nesting before your baby? I'm fighting the urge to scrub the pantry closet and lay down contact paper on the shelves.
I'm sure you're wondering what the hold-up is with getting the nursery together? Stay tuned--it will be worth the wait, and the surprise.
