When I first got put off on leave, I have to admit that I was pretty lazy. I didn’t want to do much of anything. I didn’t want to clean, cook, go out or any of that. I was all about sleeping and lounging outside in the sun with a book. Yes, I realize I was put on sick leave prior to mat leave for a reason… to REST! But still there becomes a point where one has to wonder how much sleep and laziness is too much?! Yea know, what I mean?! Like frig I made my poor husband who works 8 to 10 hour days (not including his commute) do the groceries on the weekends… Meanwhile I was home all week and could have done it myself. Anyhoo, I can officially say that things have since changed drastically.
There is no shot in hell I can just sit on my ass all day now and do nothing. I have no clue if this has to do with my due date being a mere 4 and a half weeks away or not… Maybe I just feel this need to get a lot accomplished now that I know there won’t be much longer for me to have all this time to get things done. Last Wednesday, it was absolutely miserable outside so I took advantage of it and cleaned my house thoroughly (everything from base boards to floors to walls to bathrooms, etc got scrubbed down)… Not only that I find myself lurking around my house daily now with a bottle of spray cleaner and a rag… I can’t stand the site of a cup ring on the counter anymore… It just shouldn’t happen. Can you tell I have become a full fledged nester?! I don’t know what else could seriously make it more obvious.
Today I finally did ALL of Little Miss C’s laundry. When it was dry I proceeded to fold it or hang it up in order of size. Whilst the laundry was going, I began to purge through and clean the fridge and under the kitchen sink to get rid of any old products or empty products we had kicking around… I filled one whole friggin’ blue box with stuff. Oh, and I vacuumed today… That seems to be an every other day sort of task now because it really, really bugs me to see cat or dog fur on the floor (even if it is just a few strands). Don’t worry I am not always on the go… I mean I did fit in time for a 2 hour nap this morning… Had I not woke up with a headache though, I don’t know if I would have fit it in.
I’m not sure what tomorrow has in store for me. I have quite a few things I want to get done (i.e. groceries, getting more hangers for Little Miss C’s closet and maybe some baking…), so we will have to play it by ear and see.
