I Need A Stiff Drink & A Interior Designer

this is me right now – minus the tools, add candles and wallflowers plug-ins…heh.

oh, and subtract tattoos and add a flabby stomach…mmmhmm.

We’ve been in our house for nearly 2 weeks now and I still have a few boxes left in our “office”. And by office, I really mean the room that contains my computer, a disk chair, and…boxes. It’s starting to bother me, but I am apparently too obsessed with what fall-scented candles I need and trying to find the perfect little pots for my kitchen herb garden. So, as you can see, my priorities are perfectly lined up.

The strangest thing is that I hadn’t read a book in years and after starting the Sookie Stackhouse series last summer, I now have enough books to warrant a bookshelf (or two) which I have negelected to get. I’m picky. I don’t know what color I want. I don’t know what style I want. So I shut down and my books have been living in a box. Not very nice, I know.

Curtains. They are really starting to piss me off! We are situated on a main road and our bedroom is a little bit too visible at night. We’re keeping it PG but I still like my privacy. Though I must have everything match and we have two big windows and a little guy. So I am stuck. Again.

The yard is a disaster area thanks to the man who lived here before us. He apparently had better things to do. but my dogs insist upon being outside 648326 hours a day so this must change. However, considering hwo many things I still have yet to get started inside, I have told myself the yard can wait until next year…early spring! Knowing that early spring will really mean early summer. I live in Illinois so our winter isn’t over until May. Don’t get me started on that though.

So, here I am. Blogging instead of measuring for my curtains or out shopping from my dream bookcase. I am sure I won’t be able to keep my fingers from typing in yankeecandle.com for very long…and when they do I’ll undoubtedly spend a wee bit too much on unneccesary items all in the name on having a good smelling house for all those guests we have over…which so far is just our parents and a couple close friends. Clearly, I am going about this all right.

Damn you, Lowes, for making “doing it yourself” look so easy!

    ha! You sound exactly like me! Homes sure bring out the best in us! Tonight I put up curtains in our bedroom and they ended up being 2 different sizes!! As in… the package said they were 63 inches long and when we put them up one was 59 inches and was one 62 inches. FML ha! I say, look at those damn candles and be done with the necessary stuff! πŸ™‚
