In this case, it just so happened that friends and family had given Rob and I a significant amount of Home Depot gift cards for a combination of our housewarming, birthdays and Christmas. I insisted that we purchase the materials to create a new ten-foot long closet and build the baby a closet organizer type dresser. (I still maintain that it has nothing to do with any nesting instinct!) So, I’ve put Rob to work. He’s got a few days off in another week or two, so we’ll spend our time assembling a closet.
In addition, we’ve discovered that the mouse who ran in (and was subsequently caught by our now fearless cats) had inhabited the garage prior to gaining entry to the house. It was thoughtful enough to leave a trail at every possible stop it made. Since the garage was still being used to an extent as box storage there’s a cleaning job to be done in there too. Just the thought is making me crazy.
Call me crazy for tackling these projects now, but these things would have to be done anyway - -pregnant or not. Of course I’ll take a lesser role than I normally would. I guess being pregnant and “nesting” can work to my advantage.
