This nesting business is starting to get a bit ridiculous.

I woke up early on Saturday and decided it was finally time to clean my two disgusting bathrooms.

I started with the guest bathroom that hasn’t been cleaned since my brother-in-law lived with us in May. I spent a lot of time hunched over cleaning out that tub. Then I moved onto the toilet, which took about the same amount of hunched-over time seeing as it’s Dan’s primary bathroom since it’s next to his game room. Boys…I’m so glad Monkey is a girl, I can’t even fully explain that to you.

So, after the guest bath was done, I needed to take a break b/c Dan told me to wake him at 9:30 so we could go for a walk.

In between cleaning and walking, my back started spasming. But, it was manageable so when we got back from our walk, I moved onto the master bath.

Cue more hunched over scrubbing.

Once my bathrooms sparkled, I laid down for midday nap.

When I awoke, I couldn’t walk more than 3 steps without my back spasming and losing my breath. I mean, it hurt, it hurt bad.

I needed help to get in and out of bed. I needed help getting off the toilet. I needed help simply rolling over in bed.

It was bad. But it’s way better now, thank goodness!

But now, I’m aware that I need to be more aware of this giant belly and the added strain it puts on my back.

I’m also aware that I need to clean my bathrooms WAY more often.
