|A Beautiful Mess|
My nesting is continuing. Yesterday I had to go out and buy a new rug to put in my kitchen. (I have a small rug near the sink) The old rug had cat hair and dust all over it and no matter how much I swept or vacuumed it, it wouldn't get sufficiently clean. The only problem with the rug I settled on is that it has apples on it. The rest of my decorations in my kitchen have sunflowers on them - the curtains, the canisters, the salt and pepper shakers, my oven mits...etc. Oh, well. It looks nice. I could tell Andrew was getting frustrated because he was saying that the difference between us is that I care way too much if things match. He's right. I also had to get rid of my nasty white blinds in the livingroom, the bedroom, and of course the baby's room. I tried to wash them in the tub (in fact, I do that almost every single spring cleaning) but they just don't get clean enough. I bought new ones instead. We also got a big area rug for the livingroom. I can't wait until her crib is finally put together so I can get rid of these big boxes and really start cleaning. I think the kicker was when I was on my hands and knees under my dining room table vacuuming with my dustbuster. I wanted to make sure I got up every single piece of dust, cat hair, and pine needle. Yup, 34 weeks pregnant, belly hanging to the floor, on hands and knees dustbusting.
Today I am going to wash all of her clothes and watch the Giants playoff game. I am upset that the Lions lost last night. I guess my premonition about the Lions and Ravens going against each other in the Superbowl is not going to happen. (I mean just that part, the rest of it can still happen - see previous entry).
I feel bittersweet that it is Sunday - for one it's Sunday the last day of the weekend and I feel like the weekend flew. However, Monday starts a new (and very busy) workweek - time always flies when I have work, especially when I have something to do EVERY SINGLE FRIGGIN DAY after work!!! Ugh! I hate that...Monday - I have a parent meeting and one of my old students is coming back to visit me. Tuesday I have to tutor until 4:30. Wednesday I have a faculty meeting. Thursday I have a union meeting (which I think I might pull the pregnancy card and say that my back hurts and I really am not feeling well.) Don't judge! I haven't used that card ONCE in 34 weeks!
My shower is in two weeks. I am in disbelief. I have to stop checking my registry though. I am getting a little nervous. I hope this doesn't come off as being awful, but all the things I need - crib sheets, my stroller, my bottles - haven't been bought yet. I have two friends that told me that they aren't buying anything off of my registry. They want to get me and Lily cute things. I really appreciate that. I completely do. But I don't need more clothes. I need bottles! I need my air purifier. I need my pack and play and my crib sheets. I know I sound so unappreciative. I really do. I just am getting nervous that Andrew and I are going to have to put out a lot of money buying certain things. Which I really should consider myself lucky considering I know people that aren't having showers and that didn't have a shower who had to put out all their own money to buy what they needed. That was a really selfish rant. I apologize for my selfishness.
I am going to sign off now and get ready for food shopping and laundry all day!
