Much to the dismay of my family, I took down all the Christmas decorations today. Well, not just me, I made them all help too. I have never done it this early in my whole married life. It's not that I don't love Christmas time, it's just that I'm in a mental and physicall race of time. I have 6 weeks or less until Mason arrives, my csection date is Feb.8th, but he could decide to come before then. And I'm sure a lot of you know how the nesting phase can make an almost sane woman a total nutcase, well, I'm at that point! I want the house perfect and easy to manage, so the decorations had to go sooner than later. Is that Scroogey of me?
I also want to get my sewing room redone again, I'm not happy with it. I realize it is not "pretty" and homey, so I don't like it. So that is another thing on my list in the next few weeks, along with decluttering every room in the house, catching up on the laundry, making some baby clothes, making the baby bedding, getting everything ready for the baby, and making lots of lists for the hubby and kids. I'm starting to panic, can you tell?
On a happy note, my middle sister sent the kids a huge goodie basket for Christmas(didn't get a pic of it before they tore into it), and for hubby and me an azaela plant and a martha stewart gift basket filled with stonewall kitchen breakfast goodies. I'm in love with this basket and plan on making it into a sewing basket. Thank you Shelly and Grafton!!!
As you are all probably aware of, I am shamefully bad at responding to comments and I do apologize for that. So I plan on making a question and answer post soon where I will answer comments questions and you can ask me anything else you want.
I'll keep you updated on the nesting progress :) I'm just happy at the moment we managed to get all the decorations down(including the huge glass ornament tree) and put away nice and neat in the basement. It's amazing what can be accomplished when everyone helps and a psycho momma is on the loose!
