What a busy day or two it has been. I never had time to get around J-Land last night. Thank heavens for a quiet Tuesday evening and a day off tomorrow...yeah! I think I've made it around to most of the journals but usually end up forgetting a couple.
On Sunday evening, the carpet girl called and wanted to stop in after I got home from work last night with samples which will fit without a seam. Of course, she was later than expected this time so it sort of shot the whole evening. The sample is really lovely...sort of the shade of the darker tan on my tag...a bit darker than that, though, because it's a heavy traffic room. It has subtle, tweedy shades in it. It can be put in as early as next Wed. if I get my closet cleaned out. The biggest closet we have is in the familyroom and it is loaded. That will be my chore for tomorrow. I'm sort of excited because I find all sorts of treausres deep within the closet that I forgot I even had.
I'm still in a bit in sticker shock and have OCD a little bit on this. My main concern is that I may not be in this house for more than a couple of years. My finances are not cooperating with owning a home. My idea was just to replace the carpet with a cheap version that looked good when I sell it. The carpet I got is more for a long term investment. I guess it is, though. But I do need carpeting. The previous homeowner installed the carpeting that is in here now. Good carpeting; bad installation. It's pulled away from the wooden tackboard by the ceramic tile at the entrance. It's fraying and getting worse. So the deal is done. Move on, Chris.
I really, really want a new patio door into my diningroom. It was installed impropery and is so fogged you can't see through it. It's a huge door; not standard. It will cost far too much but sheesh, it's my dream to view the scenery out of it. Well, the Lord knows my needs so I'll be patient.
My BF is getting ready to move into his posh new pad...LOL...sounds a little cockney, doesn't it?
He took me to Boscov's, a dept. store, and let me pick out a new t.v. stand. Wow, it's gorgeous! I was going more cheapo but he gave me two super nice ones to choose from. He's getting the t.v. at Sears tomorrow. They will hold it until the carpet is done. I'm thinking I need a new coffee table. I think he is also. I'll have to take some pics of my new improved familyroom. I'll do before and afters......
I've changed the sidebar again...found a graphic on a site that looked sort of smoldering. It's off a foreign web site...lol...I have no idea what the word means that is flashing on there. Hope it's not a bad one. And, bad boy, Colin Farrell, who by the way, I think Becky's old BF, Danny looks like. That's another story for another day.
It's spring and cold in western Pa. We are expecting a little bit of snow tomorrow. I want some some and warmth already.
Have a great evening!
