Nesting or just plain insanity?

The cabinets that we ordered for the basement and laundry room finally came in last Friday. As we were standing in the laundry room visualizing how they'd look once installed, it suddenly occurred to me that I needed to paint! I know, who paints their laundry room? And as if we don't have enough silly house projects going on right now! But I was determined, and Neil chose not to argue (smart boy). I know it doesn't even look like I painted (the color is just a touch darker than it was), but it really did make a huge difference. These days I am all about clean and complete, and that was my end result!

Neil blames my sudden urges on nesting, claiming it started when I got the brilliant idea to paint the exterior of our house a few weeks ago. :) I will admit that feeling the need to paint the one room that is probably seen LEAST by anyone else is a bit much. Hey, at least I'm not alphabetizing the cans in my pantry (yet).

I know what you mean about nesting. I alphabetized all the cans in our pantry and categorized them by fruit, veggie, etc when I was pregnant with my oldest.

Love the cabinets!!

Valeri, where are you getting your energy?? I just remember being completely exhausted all the time when I was pregnant with Dallin, and I didn't have another 2 yr old running around to chase! I'm amazed by all you accomplish!

I wish my laundry room was this neat and tidy! I love the cabinets and the new color. I go into cleaning hypermode when I'm preggers. Just having that little body inside makes you think of all sorts of things you want to be able to do before it comes out! ;)

WE painted our laundry room. Yes, we did. So, no, you're not crazy. Paint can do wonders!!

I hope I have as much energy as you do the next time I'm pregnant! It looks great!

Girl, why on earth aren't you alphabetizing your cans? I've been doing that since my first pregnancy. Hee hee...
