I wish I nested like some of you do! I don't think I had any nesting urges with DD, and I haven't really had a lot of them this time, either. I bet my house would really appreciate it if the nesting bug would hit!

Today I got a huge urge. I straightend the living room, again, vacuumed, and started cleaning all the windows really scrubing the window sills, and everything. Shutting the storm windows... And DH is insulating them with plastic ... So far he got the kids's room done. I couldnt even nap when the kids dod because I couldntturn the drive off
I washed all the newborn/small diapers today. Repaired the elastic in several that didn't stretch the way they used to 4.5 years ago I also replaced the elastic in our changing pad covers. The elastic was shot and the covers didn't stay on the pad...that's a job I've been meaning to get to for over a year! I also washed all the 0-3 clothes and put them in the drawer. Sad to see how few outfits we have, but I'm going to see if we can make it work.
That's about it for me!! No real cleaning urges here...but I've been maintaining the house by myself while DH has been training for his new job, so I feel accomplished just keeping up on the laundry and dishes while he's been gone!

I primered umm most of the house- the dining room was bugging me so i primered over the whole thing and painted 8 samples onto the wall- i dont like any of them though so it's quite .. interesting looking.. in here now.
primered the door jams and then got crazy and primered the whole bathroom, over the windows/trims/walls/shelves...hahaha... DH was quite amused when he got home.. sure did freshen the place up though!
Rearranged our room and finally got the babies room mostly done- although I know she wont even sleep in there for a while.

We moved so luckily I've had unpacking to keep me busy.
I also started with Owen's room, I need my bf to put together his dresser and go pick up the crib, but we won't need the crib for a while since my father handmade a cradle for him, (so I have to find a friggin mattress for it now), but he will be in that in our room for a good while. (It's a huge cradle, and can be stationary) I just want everything done, but I've also had a virus for 3 weeks and got over that for one week and now have a flu (was in l&d yesterday too because of dehydration..) so, I'm more trying to get rest to feel better to be able to get things done. I'm also waiting on my baby shower to do more laundry for him, most things are washed, but I have a small pile of what needs to get done but am just going to wait. Although, if people buy him clothes, I am returning it (I have clothes coming out of everywhere... up to 24months, as my sister has 2 boys - 2and 1 who are both in 24 month clothes now.)
