… because I kind of need it to, soon.
Our house is very clean — I am the kind of person who absolutely keeps up on cleaning and tidying and so it’s not like our place is trashed. However, I am also the kind of person who doesn’t believe in forcing myself into doing a chore. If I know the chore needs doing, I just wait until I feel the sudden motivation to do it, and then I knock it out quickly. This has always worked, and I’ve never failed to complete something that needed to be done.
THERE IS SO MUCH BABY STUFF THAT NEEDS TO BE DEALT WITH.
Like, ermagerd, baby stuff everywhere.
We have two huge tubs of newborn and 3 month clothes my sister gave me, and I haven’t even opened the tubs, much less put the clothes into the drawers of the dresser that currently sits empty (thankfully all the clothes are washed so I don’t have to also do that). Then there are all the clothes that I’ve bought, which need to be washed and put away before baby comes. Oh, and then there are the baby supplies that I bought on Craigslist that will need to be cleaned before she arrives. And the cloth diapers that need like 5 washes before they’re ready to use.
I have the car seat but I haven’t even detached the manual from it to learn how to use it. I haven’t tried putting it in the car and I haven’t tested it to see how it fits in the Graco snap-and-go stroller I bought. It’s just sitting in the middle of the living room floor, taunting me.
The walk-in closet in the guest room, which is where all the baby clothes/stuff will live, needs to be completely reorganized because right now it’s filled with crap that doesn’t really need to be there and just got stashed there when we moved in because it was convenient.
Our walk-in closet, which is ENORMOUS and will serve as a sort of nursery for the first few months while baby still sleeps in our room, needs a lot of work too. Things need to be moved and put away, and I guess I should get around to washing those pack-n-play sheets I bought. Oh, and we’re having a shower this weekend, so MORE crap will be added to the collection of items I have done nothing whatsoever with.
I’m almost 33 weeks. I know of many people who ended up having their babies at this point, or very shortly after. If baby were to be born tomorrow, we would be in a world of trouble because our house is not. ready. I don’t have any hospital bags even partially packed.
WHEN WILL I GET THIS NESTING URGE BECAUSE DAYAMMMMM I HAVE A LOT OF SHITE TO DO.
AHHHHHH. Anyone else looking around their house in a panic but still not motivated to actually deal with it?!!?!
