Spring Cleaning

today was one of those days that we (peter and i) both woke up rarin' to go! i got up a little earlier than he did and decided to whip up a batch of banana nut bread. while that was baking, i helped myself to a cup of coffee and a few chapters in a has been raining here off and on all day, so i knew we wouldnt be going out at all, good thing i did the yard work while he was at work yesterday!! when peter got up and around and after breakfast, we both set out to some projects. now, this is not something that we had planned to just "magically" happened! somehow we both felt the need to get things done. i cleaned the kitchen, pretty much top to bottom, cleaned all the window sills, sorted through our big book shelf, cleaned both bathrooms, cleaned a few loads of laundry, did a prom "up-do" for a dear friend (i hope you had a blast, dani!!), helped peter re-arrange the living room (several times), a trip to best buy for a t.v. wall mount, dusted the living room, and helped peter mount the tv. busy day, huh? peter has taken apart a bookshelf, moved the stationary bike, put together Charlotte's beach butterfly canvas, all the wiring for the entertainment, plus all the things he helped me with. if you know me at all then you know that this is very uncommon. it is not "normal" for me to being getting some many things done and cleaning so me crazy! and on top of it all, the TV has not been turned on at all today, that may be a first for me!!!

at one point, while standing in our extra room, i couldnt help but think (and say to peter) that if things were different this all wold be me "nesting". doing our final preparations before we had our first baby in the house. i would only have about four and a half weeks left. instead of putting finishing touches on a crib in our grey room, we were moving our stationary bike in there. i got a little sad and just took a moment for myself. i tried not to let those thoughts consume my whole day. peter and i had several good laughs today. we went to our favorite mexican restaurant with grant and our good friend, justin...also  some good laughs with those guys. so, while it is normal to do some spring cleaning and re-arranging, and it is fun to go out and enjoy time with friends over a margarita, i couldnt help but wish i was in the final prep stages before having our baby.

i know that my day will come, thats what keeps me going sometimes!

blessings, ALo
