Like a bird

I don't remember it being this early with Bear. I thought I had another month or two before it hit. I thought wrong. I am talking about nesting.
This morning I woke up at 430am with the idea in my head to change around all of the furniture in my bedroom. I could not go back to sleep I was thinking so intently. I had to stop myself from getting out of bed and getting a tape measure to see how things would fit differently. I had to fight the urge to get up and turn on the light and bust out my note pad and start making detailed drawings of ideas. I held out until 6am. I moved all of the furniture around. I vacuumed under everything. I used all the attachments on my vacuum. I vacuumed my mattress and box spring. I got out the pledge and cleaned every inch of that bed. I cleaned the floor board around my entire room. I cleaned and ironed all of my bedding. And I got all of that done before 10am. (And just so I don't get yelled at, I have this special kind of furniture that is super light so I didn't have to strain.) Actually, the stuff was like pushing around boulders, but I am strong like an ox! :)
I then moved onto the office. I had emptied out the desk a couple weeks ago and so I broke that down and made nice neat piles of wood to take to the dump. Then I thought it would be a good idea to go to the dump tomorrow. I went around my entire house inside and out gathering things to go to the dump. Bears little table and chair set that Duke kindly used as a chew toy, and the screen door that Duke and Bear demolished. I took that down, filled in the holes with wood filler and sanded that down. One day I will paint it. I then cleaned every window in my house. I am in a mood to tackle. I would go out and wash the cars, but it is still a little cold for that yet.
So if you need something done around your house, just give me a call. I am in the mood to get stuff done!

Apparently I did this when I was the same age. He just started doing it today on his own. Must be in the genes.
