I don't know why but I find January to be the most painful month of the year. The world just seems darker once the Christmas lights get put away. But now it is February. We are a month closer to Spring, sunnier weather, seasonal fruit, and May.
And since May is inching closer and closer, Phil and I will be spending Saturday feverishly cleaning out what is currently our "closet" and what will be the nursery.
When we moved in, I picked the smallest bedroom for us to use. I know this doesn't seem like the most logical thing to do, but I'm really weird. It had to do with the way light came into the room. To compensate for the tiny room and tinier closet, we branched out into another room to store our clothes and my grandmother's vanity.
Unfortunately, it has become the dumping ground for all the other
While our Saturday plans may some tedious and boring, I am so excited. Once we get the nursery cleaned out, we can get it painted and then Phil can put together the crib and dresser. And then we can move the glider up there. And it will start to feel like a nursery.
For some reason, the nursery makes it seem so much closer and real. Cause the growing, moving belly just wasn't making it real enough*. :)
*actually the moving belly is pretty cool.
