This past week I’ve been GRUMPY. Grumpy. Grumpy. *That time of the month* grumpy. Overworked. Tired. Poor. Unhealthy.
But I’ve been reading like a fiend. I’m at 12! (Which means 8 since Memorial Day Weekend.)
And I’ve been putting final touches on the apartment in my spare time. Last I left you with kitchen and bathroom goodness. I’ve since added a wall shelf with photos and a few more penguins to the kitchen area.
I hung a few shelves I painted in the bathroom (a light greenish color.)
And I started in the Office Space. Hmmm. I need a name for the Office Space (Spare Room.) When Erin and I lived together we called our NOT A DINING ROOM the *Inspiration Room* and living with my getting the milk for free partner our office was the *Middle Room* and now I need a new name…
The Office Space was the room where all the boxes found themselves. Most boxes needed to go to the attic (can you say Winter/Christmas decorations?) And many of the boxes I sorted out and purged just stuff… (seriously, I purged another entire large blue garbage bin of… stuff.) Going to the attic freaked me out because I heard something squeak-chirp in the walls. (Baby birdies? Mice? or BATS?) But I continued to bring up all the boxes (even the empty ones) JUST TO BE FINISHED.
Now the room looks terribly lonely, but at least organized. (For now.)
I’m hooking the internet up this week…finally.
And I moved the very very RED shelves I plan on hanging in the bedroom all in the same location.
I wanted the bedroom walls red, but landlord wants not so dark colors (bah) so I painted all the accessories instead. And a dresser…and I have a few pieces of black and white furniture as well,well…the room is not complete. Will take photos when completed.
Another project I decided on a whim involved the purging and organizing process of the Office Space moving into the hallway…I put up a picture mural. I’m in LOVE. I mean all those photos have been moved from box to box to box to apartment to box to apartment for years. I finally did something with them.
And now, off to read a book…
