Is there such a thing as "nesting", when you are not pregnant?

I am not pregnant, but for the last week, I got this incredibly strong urge to totally clean out my house. My house is not dirty or disgusting in any way. But I have been totally throwing stuff out and scrubbing the whole place from top to bottom, and I am painting the rooms, and fixing stuff and I CAN'T STOP! My family says that I am in a frenzy and that its like I'm nesting. BUT MY HOUSE LOOKS GOOD! :0)

  • Do you live somewhere that gets cold in the winter? I live in Illinois, and I find myself doing this when the weather starts to turn colder, kind of preparing the house for winter and thinking of cozying up. I just bought a bunch of spicy scented candles to fill the house with Fall smells while I clean!
