Year 2 Day 67: Nesting - The Second String
The clock is ticking away and tonight I got a massive second wind that resulted in me tidying the entire bedroom. It was very much in need of a tidy, to be fair. I emptied the bookshelf on my side (which contained lots of rubbish and random bits) and moved it over to Matt's side to make room for the Moses basket in its place. (Huge kudos to Em & Josie for nabbing such a cute bedding set for it, by the way.) Then I reorganized all of Matt's books by author...Feist, Brooks, Pratchett, Tolkien. After that I hung all of Matt's t-shirts neatly in the wardrobe and packed away some things that just didn't need to be out.
When Matt peeked upstairs to see my progress I think he was pretty shocked. We were both pretty bad about letting things just accumulate on the floor and I thought now would be as good a time as any to just get it all sorted and out of the way -- especially since I'm not making any promises on domestic duties immediately after bunny is here.
Not only can you see the (hideous pink) carpet, but the duffel and Jeep diaper bag in the photo are officially packed and ready for any unexpected trips to the hospital in the next couple of days/weeks.
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
