Friday - I came home and tried to find my license (that I lost about a month ago). I started by looking under the couch cushions - and decided to vacuum them as well. That turned into vacuuming the floor (I have hardwood throughout the house, we usually sweep it) and the corners. Then I threw away a lot of "stuff". Went into the bedroom and did the same thing. Hallway? Same thing. Cleaned the kitchen. I even washed, dried, folded and PUT AWAY laundry...and everyone knows how much I despise folding and putting away laundry. DH worked yesterday (Saturday), so I was like, heck yeah! I'm gonna get done! I still had some issues in the bedroom and I really wanted to get the bathroom clean. I dusted the entertainment center. That was it. Haha. Today, I vacuumed AGAIN (DH's dog is part lab and he sheds constantly, it really irritates me because there is black dog hair EVERYWHERE, whereas my two barely shed at all) and got the bathroom clean. I got down on my hands and knees and scrubbed the floor (it was gross) but I had to get back up before I was done. Yes, I can mop, but a mop just doesn't do what a good old fashioned scrubbing will do. I have five bags of trash that I asked DH to take to the trash can - that I probably will end up taking myself. NOT that I had that much trash sitting around, it's just stuff that we had sitting around that I decided we don't need anymore. DH still has stuff sitting around that I didn't know what to do with - like a really small tackle box, some paperwork from his school and a first aid kit.
I don't think I'm "nesting" - even though I haven't gotten down on my hands and knees to scrub anything since we moved in here. Is anyone else starting to clean like this? I think I'm doing it because I decided to have the baby shower at my house, and my grandmother is coming (I think) and she is SUPER snooty and stuck up and I really don't want her walking into a dirty house. When we moved into this house it was a hot mess, it's gotten a lot better, but some stuff I'm cleaning is from the previous owner, which I don't really think is fair because they're going to expect the house to be spotless when we move out.
I know, I know.. I'm rambling. So..who's cleaning? Who's making meals for when baby arrives? Who's setting up a nursery?
