Does baking a 7 pound ham for just Christian and I to eat count as a sign that I'm nesting? How about bringing home lots of free stuff (2 couches, a piano, 4 chairs, a dresser, 3 bookshelves, and a bench) in the past month? I don't really think so...but I'm hoping for signs of this instinctive mother-to-be nesting phase...I just don't feel anything close to it yet. I only see a desperate mama bird collecting other people's throw-aways and cooking way too much food for dinner (stuff I'm likely to do at any given time in my life). The only uncontrollable urge I have is...nothing. I have an urge to do nothing.
I think nesting would be more natural for me, if all I had to do was build an actual nest!! Fitting pieces of twigs together sounds like a breeze! I've never really been an organizer, or very particular about how I clean stuff, and I don't really make things pretty. I'm not careful when I fold clothes, and I rarely iron anything. I also have a bad habit of forgetting where things go...or not even assigning things a place to begin with. I have an entire room of "projects" that need all of those things, and worst of all, I don't really mind living in this chaos!
And THAT is why I am really counting on this nesting instinct to kick in--to bring some type of method to my madness. And for Christian's sake (can you even imagine what it's like living with me??), I hope it's sooner rather than later.
