so behind on the blogging. Life has been CRAZY TALK.
Between adjusting to the new job (love it, hate the commute), home improving (painted my new room- see below- and started to re-grout the countertops. Honestly, for 25 bucks of your own money you can re-grout a bathroom, kitchen counter or back splash, etc....and make a WORLD of difference in a rental unit. Here is a how-to link.) trying (failing...) to get to the gym, general errands and house keeping, PLUS trying to see Amir and friends, I am seriously tapped out.
Oh! AND mail! dear goodness, i MUST fit that in or else I can't stay sane.
one thing at a time loves.
So OMG THE NEW HOUSE. Lindsay and I are moving next door into the other half of the house I am attached to! It is a 4 bedroom house, and just the two of us. sigh. so nice and calm and .....wait. Pony lives there too. so I guess that makes 3 of us and a not so calm house. Actually, no. I shouldn't say that. He is going to chill the fuck out with all that mansion to run about in. Seriously, this place is huge. Its like a legit family home. We are so lucky. and i don't have to leave my vegetable garden! wee!
Although the single most exciting thing about the house (dishwasher aside), is DEFINITELY the craft room, having a new bedroom to work with has inspired me to go in a whole new direction with my room. Here are some rooms that are inspiring my new bedroom decor:
I've already painted my room a really vibrant, semi-gloss white and It already has "honey brown" natural wood trim and built-ins. I am kind of sad that the person prior to me did such a crummy job and got paint all over the trim, but whatever. I am installing white floating shelves low on the wall beside my bed as side tables. Also, now that we have so much space I can really have my room as minimal as possible, which is refreshing. I think I need a plant though. and I can't wait to color co-ordinate my books.
I will post some pictures as soon as it is near-completion. Consider this part one of a series of recent-news related posts. I am adjusting to the routine, so hopefully blogging will become regular part of it.
