I came in here to post about my rather boring day, but the TV was on the History Channel and here's this absolutely hilarious "spoof" of VH1's "I love the ___" [insert decade of choice for mockery]. That is some FUNNY shit. You can check it out for yourself here.
So anyway, I had an ordinary day. Worked some more on cleaning house... we are so overwhelmed with STUFF and this year I WILL deplete my stash of everything I've been saving for some "future project." That's this year's project! But first I must make a space I like, a space I can feel good about, whether I'm making something, planning something to make, or just rest and reflect. Today I put away all the Christmas wrapping paraphernalia that had been used in Daniel's room, Wrap Central for the holidays. Then I brought up my wooden spool, transformed into a unique bookshelf, and put it in the corner of that room. I think his room gets the best light of any room in the house, and that's what I need--light! I'll post pictures of the spool/shelf soon. Anyway it looks a bit nicer in there, a striped sheet and my American Flag afghan on the futon, a large round lace doily on top of the spool and all my artsy fartsy books in its shelves.
So the fun part comes after I got off work tonight. Paul had been in the bedroom watching "Ballykissangel" on his laptop (my anniversary gift to him...Ballykissangel, not the laptop) and when I came to bed, he had fallen asleep watching it, still had the earphones in, and Nicky snuggled up next to him on one of my 2 feather pillows.
How cute, right? So I snuck the ear buds out, and the laptop closed, and thought I would just sit on the couch (the dogs' bed) for awhile to wind down from work. Where I looked over and saw Trudy on my OTHER feather pillow.
Paul has like 6 pillows and he throws most of them off the bed before the night is over. I will only sleep on these 2 sad, old, completely broken in and comfortable REAL feather pillows. My dogs love them the VERY best and I have to wash them all the time now.
Anyway... I told you I had a boring day!
