Building a Nest

I've been trying to get my nest in order, and not doing such a great job.  I should take a lesson from the industrious swallows who also want to build a nest....on my front porch.  Give them a few hours and they'll have a lump a mud thrown on the brick above the door.  Give me a stick, and I'll knock it down.  They're brazen little things and just sit on the bay window a few feet away and stare at me, all while holding little muddy bits in their mouths.  And then I destroy their home each and every time they try to build it, and they come back again and start right over.  If only I was like that with dishes and laundry and other issues in my own nest.
