Another busy week followed by a busy weekend... but it's been quite a nice couple of days. I have been taking photographs of my ever expanding tummy, and, mercy, is it growing on a daily basis. Last night, when we were out at a lecture, it was the first time that people seemed to realize that I was definitely pregnant!
I will have to post pics... well, maybe :)
Whilst I'm not a fan of evolutionary explanations of the human species - especially when it comes to sex/gender - I have been caught off guard by something: nesting.
Now, I'm not someone who you could accuse of being house proud, though it's true that space is important to me... but nesting, etc? Well, apparently (or perhaps it's maybe a VERY rational realization that we have to be more organized and prepared...
This was few weeks I have been lamenting about the state of our floors. With two dogs and a kitty and a gritty driveway during mud season, our hardwood floors and rugs are plenty dirty. Our newish vacuum does a terrible job. This has been causing no end of internal angst... and it's given rise to a desire for a Dyson. I know, i know!!
Rich has not been so keen on the idea... which made me quite cross as I'm not quite sure he's getting it. Yesterday, though, I convinced myself that we just have to have one.. and of course they're extremely expensive. Extremely. Rich just couldn't see the point in it.
" Don't you care that our rugs are in need of a good clean, that our floors are always dirty because of the pups. And don't you care that little Rafi will be crawling amongst the doggy hair and the cat fur?"
And so the discussion ensued.
I did get a little upset about it (yikes) and by the time we got to the talk (an amazing lecture my Dr. Greger, speaking on human health and nutrition) I'd browbeaten poor old Rich into thinking that a very expensive Dyson was a good idea.
So, today, whilst we were looking for new bathroom suites (not so much a nesting thing but a necessity given our current bathrooms) I saw that Home depot were having a sale on their Dysons.. Oh, lord, I just couldn't resist and we came home with the Dyson Animal...
I spent a blissful couple of hours hoovering our rugs and, yikes, how filthy they were. Even Rich was impressed :)
I am finding that I have a desire for everything to be clean and finished... and we have lots to finish. I did find some non-toxic paint for the poppet's nursery today, which made me endlessly happy. And this morning I bypassed the gym so that I could get on with some chores - which included doing our taxes. I barely recognize myself!!
