Although I would love to have a clean, well-organized house right now, we have instead reached the point where we can empty the POD that we've had forever. If we get it emptied and taken away by Monday, we won't have to pay for another month. On the downside, we actually can't put everything away yet. So basically, we're just bringing more stuff into the crowded rooms and making a bigger mess than before. Just what the stressed out, over due pregnant lady needs!

Of course, I am fully on-board with this course of action, even if it is making the house a wreck, because I can see a lot of value in saving the rental price of the POD and unloading it and carting it away will make me very happy. Even so, I wish I could have the tidy spotless house (if only for a short while) that one dreams of when about to have a baby.


What a pickle but I think Id get rid of it and make my house a mess. It can only get so bad right?? haha

Just make sure at least one room looks clean from one vantage point. That's what I did after D was born. Then I could sit on the couch in the living room while I nursed him, serenely looking at a clean room, and just pretend the rest of the house looked the same.

Woman what are you still doing here? Every time I check in, I expect to either see news that you have had the baby or silence because you are too busy having the baby to tell us about it.

Congrats on the unloading! Maybe nice people will surprise you with having every thing put away when you return from the hospital with the baby. Although I can't imagine a house can ever stay very clean with 5 little ones.

And sorry about your grandmother-in-law.

On the upside, your back yard will suddenly look five times bigger!

Perhaps you should move the rocking chair under the plum tree for the rest of the summer.
