Nesting may have set in

Or maybe I am just feeling the need to get 'er done! I found myself on the floor of my powder room cleaning behind the pedestal sink yesterday. The kids and I tackled the basement toys. Zoe and I purged her book case and reorganized her American Girl doll stuff. I ironed Paul's stuff and cleaned more bathroom things (toilets and sinks- ick!). I steam cleaned my floor and even washed some windows. (My back was not happy by the time nighttime rolled around!) So has "nesting" officially begun? I don't know.

I do know that I cannot sleep and I woke up at 3:45 and decided to read on the couch until I fell back asleep. Hmm, now that makes sense doesn't it? I came downstairs and as soon as I turned on the lamp, my parrot (Grayman) started whispering "good morning, what are you doing" to me. So much for falling back asleep. This is the second night in a row I have found myself wide awake with a racing mind. The things that are keeping me up: (obviously) baby delivery, making sure my other kids are going to be cared for, paying bills so they won't be late, silly chores like cleaning the floor in the powder room (!), making sure I have groceries for the next week or so*, and this...Once an organizer, always an organizer. I put this little bucket by the back door so the kids will have a place to stash their sunglasses. They all like to wear them outside which is good since it will help their eyes in the long run but they get all whiny when they can't find them. Voila! A place for them to deposit their shades. I am no genius but I pretend to be one every now and then. ;) Of course I had to put a tag on it.

I will try to post as soon as I find out anything from our doctor tomorrow. But if you don't see me, you know I'll be at the hospital! Eeeeeee!!!

*Funny how these are "normal" concerns but they seem so much more pressing since I know everything is about to go all crazy insane wild at my house when little guy arrives. :)
