Right around this time of the year, I get an itch. --no not the my-skin-is-so-dry-middle-of-winter itch. But rather one that comes from deep inside. When I see the morning sun filtering in through our windows, I get such an excitement that comes from deep, deep inside.
With the snow coming intermittently and a few other glimpses of spring: a bird chirping on occasion, temperatures that sometimes reach the mid 40's, and a few crocuses making an early appearance, I get an itch.
I don't know what I would call it exactly. Maybe it's the urge to do some spring cleaning. Maybe it's the desire to get out of the house and go on an adventure. Maybe it's the anticipation that has been building up all winter, to tackle our yard this summer.
I don't know exactly what it is, but it's there.
And this time around, I think it may be worse. Worse because my instinct to nest has been crazy!!
Seriously, it's been pretty ridiculous.
Case in point: yesterday I sat down and started a list that consists of everything I hope to do before the baby comes. It will (when I'm done) be broken down into categories such as "House Things--Carpentry Style" "House Things--Cleaning/Decorating/Rearranging" "Organizing projects" "Crafting Projects" "Adventures with Jonathan" "Misc"
Let me tell you, I'm aware of my craziness and the probability that I have of completing said list.
YET, it felt SO good to write it all down. To get it onto paper. To see before my eyes everything that has been cluttering my mind for a few weeks. It made me even more excited about the arrival of our little one--speaking of which, I owe you guys a post...don't worry...maybe later today. :)
There is going to be a lot happening over the next few months as I prepare our house for the little one's debut. I'm very excited to start tackling projects big and small. And this whole it-feels-like-spring thing is making me even more anxious. Watch out people! Nothing in our house is safe! Yup, there may be some dramatic changes around here!
