Nesting

Is it possible for a Granny to nest before her daughter gives birth?  I had one day last week that felt like that.  I cleaned the basement, did 8 loads of wash, ironed for 2 hours, mowed the lawn, brought up some baby items from storage and washed them, vacuumed and cleaned 2 bathrooms.  I haven't felt well since that day.  Just kidding.  I slept like a baby last night, for the first time in a very long time.  Today is Katy's due date and we had supper here.  I made chicken and dumplings, corn on the cob, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots in a mushroom cheese sauce, Hawaiian sweet rolls.  For dessert we had angel food cake (store bought) with strawberries and whipped cream.  Today would have been a meaningful day for her to be born because it would have been Clifford's 16th birthday today.  He passed away last July.  112  years in dog years, I think, would have been too many doggy biscuits for his birthday cake.  He gave us many years of wonderful memories.  Miss you Cliffie!  But....can not wait to meet our new little grand daughter.  I still think she will  have dark hair........
