Are you the "Nester" in your house?
January 29, 2016 1:12pm CST
I believe every house has to have a nester in order to be a home. It is usually mom or wife, tho a man could be. That is my problem every time I move. A nester is the one that makes sure there is food in the pantry and plates, utensils, etc. to eat it with. pots and pans and things to cook with. Blankets, sheets, pillows, to insure comfort for family to sleep. Cleaning supplies to make sure things are clean. Every time I move, I have to buy all these things back because I thought someone else would be the nester , but it didn't always turn out that way. Over days, son has said, I don't need a lot for himself. That is because he is a man that generally ends up with a nester and it is not him. !! We have been locking horns over what I need and don't want to buy again, hence me having to tell him, "I am a nester". Do you understand what I am saying? are you the nester. Oh to be willy nilly like son.

yes he is an exceptional man obviously. most men just leave it up to us. my late hubby was like that because he was a bachelor having to cook and do things for himself. when i moved in he had all those things needed for a home.

@bunnybon7 Actually mixed because some of the utensils are from us , when we transferred to our parent's -in-law's house as per their request , when they become old already . But when i cook , i like using my utensils . They're nicer and convenient to use.

I've lived in the same house for over 40 years, but if I were to move I would take everything that I needed with me. I don't quite understand why you haven't done that? I don't see myself as a nester, but as I do all the things you say a nester does, I suppose I am

when I moved out of my own house to move in with daughter she had most things to make a home and it costs more the more you have to move from az to florida , so we sold a lot in a yard sale. I thought I would be living out my days with her. but got my own place soon cause I didn't realize how difficult it is for a 60 yrs. old to live with 2 teen aged spoiled kids. so had to buy back. then moved 3 yrs later with son nd his fiancé, etc. its a long story. I should tell again I guess, but it is mostly all on here from years back when I first started here

I am the nester in my house and have been wherever I've lived, even way back in my college dormitory. I love making even a small room a comfy place to live. I enjoy stocking the cupboards with groceries, keeping plenty of food in the freezer, buying cute decorations, etc., all things that make a home a home.
