Nesting has just hit home! 34 weeks and 2 days (though I was convinced yesterday and the day before I was only 33 weeks! How did I lose a week?!!!) my husband will be happy to know that nesting overload has just hit home! Seriously people, I am crazy. I must be. That is the only thing that explains the craziness that just took place at my house today.

This morning Ember got picked up by Granny Franny so I decided to vacuum up her Cheerios that were all over the front room yet again. No big deal. Well, I saw dust cats flowing down the hall and thought to myself..."Hmm...the vacuum has a bare floor setting, I wonder if it will work on the hall." I saw dust cats because bunnies would be such an understatement. These things are as big as a normal size cat. I guess that is what you get when you have a 19 pound, long haired cat running around. Anyway, I proceeded to vacuum the hallway.

We have a hardwood hallway!!!!!!! Not only did I vacuum the hallway, but I brought out the attachment and sucked up all of the dirt in the crevices and all along the baseboards. I even vacuumed the legs of the table and stools in our hallway! The thought even crossed my mind to vacuum the kitchen. Then I thought to myself "'s alright for now. Just get a broom later, after lunch and rest and things will be fine."

Well, lunch came and went. I sat and rested for a little bit and then after the 5th bathroom run in about 2 hours I couldn't stand it any longer! The dogs hair around the cages got to me, the cob webs that were in the bathroom got to me. The bathroom of all places people! So, I proceeded to vacuum the bathroom, backroom, and kitchen. I even swiffered and vacuumed the wall behind the dog cages people! I have completely LOST my ever loving mind.

Seriously, who does that?! Who vacuums a wall?! (Aside from the people at one of my old jobs. That was a must. Carpet on the walls, such a bad idea!) Crazy people! That's who! I mean seriously. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am nowhere near the happy homemaker that can keep her house clean on a daily or weekly or monthly basis. I think I am missing that gene along with the cooking gene. I've often said that I need a class in how to clean the right way. I know that no matter how hard I try to clean, it isn't clean enough. And today I think I just snapped. (Hello! I vacuumed a wall!)

I even used the swiffer wet jet in the bathroom and kitchen. Totally NOT as clean as it needs to be, but it's good enough for this second. I think that if I was confident that I could get down on the floor and get back up, I would have re-grouted the bathroom tile in the spots that came up while I was vacuuming!!! Ugh! Totally insane pregnant woman on the loose! Look out! Who knows where I might strike next!

So, honey, if you are reading this, I am sorry. I know there is a lot to do, but I think that more just got added to your list. :) Love you!

Everyone else, you now have even more proof that I am certifiable!
