ROFL

Two entries within a couple of hours....I'm on a roll.  Things have calmed down considerably.  Of course, that is always subject to change.  My BF came up and put the doors back on my closet and powder room.  My tv is all set up...Joey did that.  LOL...Penny, I can barely figure out the remote...tooo many buttons.  Give me off, on, volume and the channels.  I have no idea what the other ones do and have been warned explicitly not to touch them.

The new blinds are up but I want to do a valance above them.    I'm working on the powder room also.  There will be before and afters of that.  I have some things moved back into the room from the diningroom.  Moving along.

We had a huge thunderstorm move through....my #1 phobia next to mice.  I cringe and want to run around and unplug everything before I go and hide.  I'm a real spazzo with thunder and lightening.  I could just envision my new t.v. blowing up.

Calgon, puhlease take me away....ok...I'm showing my age.  And now off to work tomorrow.  I'm stopping at Verizon tomorrow evening.  I was way too messed up and dirty to go tonight.  But I did go all slummy to the local convenience store for a bag of dog food.  Didn't run into anybody I knew either.  Amazing!  Couldn't let my poor doggy go hungry.

Now, the only problem is while the family room is improving by the day, it's making the rest of the house look like it needs a heavy dose of TLC.  I know what I'll be doing for my summer vacation.

  Here is the latest installment...still not done. (The tv actually has a picture.)  I need to move and change the pictures around. Actually, I'm scouting out new stuff but this will have to do for a while. Poor Becky above the tv is way out of whack because I used to have a much larger tv unit there before.  And, of course, I had to put Grizzly's blankie back on the sofa.  He's a lost soul without it.  He also has an old red sleeping bag that he has to have on the floor.  I moved it for the picture.  I have a coffee table that my BF has at his house.  He's refinishing it for me.

Nite all.....calgon is taking me away........CHRIS

Well Chris, I`m glad that at least you have your priorities straight and are keeping these journal entries comin`!
I really do hate those remotes also. Sometimes I get words up on my screen and don`t have a clue what I did to get them there. We had the thunderstorms here too. I like them. My daughter always hates them though.
Grizzly is just too cute with his blankies everywhere!! My dog stilll eats all that kind of stuff. :>/
No more Bucky on AI! :(
hugs,
Penny
