Nesting Has Begun

Well, it's official - I (we) have begun nesting.   It all started on Sunday when we were going to organize our dining room.  We don't really eat in there as we have a table in the kitchen, so we decided to make it more of a multi-purpose type room.  We emptied the room so we could clean the floor when we decided that since the room was empty it would be a good time to repaint the walls as they were done 5 years ago.  Well, if you are going to paint the walls, then you might as well take the heat registers off and clean under them.  While you have the registers off, you might as well repaint them.  We took the curtains down to wash and since the curtains were down, it was a good time to clean the windows and sills.  CRAZY!!  It looked so nice when it was all done though!

So then we decided that if we do a room a day then we can have the whole downstairs redone before we go back to work on Monday.  So, today we tackled the living room and painted 3 of 4 walls in living room -  washed the windows, repainted the trim and sills around windows, and  removed the heat registers and cleaned underneath and repainted them.

Tomorrow we will do the 4th wall of the living room and the hallway.

Friday's goal is the kitchen - oh that is going to be a pain in the you know what!!

Saturday we'll do the downstairs bathroom and then we'll be all done!

It will be like a whole new house.

I think there is a baby coming to live here soon!!!!

Hmm, maybe I should leave my desire to get the house ready before I get pregnant and wait for it to kick in while I am pregnant. You guys sound like you have been extremely busy!
