I guess I'm officially a stay at home mom with no baby. Friday was my last day of work, and I have found that I am filling my time by obsessively cleaning. This might be more than nesting and qualify me for psychiatric help.

Individually washed each spice on the spice rack

And that was all yesterday. Today I move on to the bathroom. Tomorrow the bedroom. I am a neat freak, but I would have it no other way. I have found it very rewarding to clean the abode whilst NSync is offering up goodly tunes. Ah, the great boy band era - there's nothing like it!


  1. ALL YESTERDAY? Oh my. Please feel free to come inflict your nesting powers on my messy home. Haha.

  2. I'm so glad that you've accomplished so much BEFORE the baby comes...cleaning drops on the priority list once baby consumes your life :)
