Nesting my...

Monday, 16 April 2012


Why is it that the threat of not being able to get things done all of a sudden makes you feel the need to do EVERYTHING? Seriously, stuff that has needed doing for months (probably years) is all of a sudden on my radar and must be done—it’s a matter of life and death! For example, over the weekend before last I moved the treadmill to vacuum under it because there was dry cat food under it. I’m nine months pregnant. It was not one of my best ideas. But I just had to do it.
My best friend tells me it’s definitely a pregnancy thing. I remember nesting with Hunter. I felt the need to clean and do laundry. I actually enjoyed doing all of it. I’m not really enjoying the chores I’ve been taking on this time, I just feel like they have to be done.
I’m writing this post now (really early for me) because I still have to do laundry (Yep, the 23 loads I did over Easter weren’t enough. We just keep making more.) and clean the downstairs bathroom. My mother-in-law is coming in tonight to stay with the monster while my hubby and I are in hospital awaiting the second, and final, monster. This means the house has to be presentable. I’d say spotless, but honestly at this point I’m beyond caring about spotless, I’m just going to wipe it all down.
For some reason, I want to get as much university work done as possible in the next 24 hours. Where was this motivation two days ago?  I have spent the last two weeks catching up on stupid stuff which wasn’t even relevant (and certainly wasn’t on my to-do list) and my necessary tasks have suffered greatly. I have seven overdue tasks—seven! Three of those, I’m ashamed to say, are writing related.
So today, with what little quiet time I have left (have to pick the monster up from school in an hour and a half) I’m going to try to plough through some of those overdue tasks. At the very least, the university work. And the laundry. And the bathroom.  Oh, and I am going to try to relax a little since I’m going in to be induced tomorrow.
That’s right. The next time I post I will be the mother of two. I think it’s fair to say I will not be posting on Wednesday, since I’ll most likely still be in the hospital. I may not make it Friday either, but I’m sure you understand. But I’ll be back. As soon as I can. Until then, have a great week!
Now, I need to get to work…
