Tell you what, we hustled some around here. The boys were here till New years Eve. The last full day, all of a sudden the living room furniture got moved completely around. Now, this was prepared for over a year ago with graph paper and careful measuring of the furniture as well as available space. I did have Comcast come out and make me another connection on the other side of the room so I could move the couch from that side and put the TV in its place. That move needed someone (NOT ME...ABSOLUTELY NOT ME!!) to unhook everything from the stereo/TV/speakers and re hook everything on the other side of the room. That got done..all in a rush the day and evening before they left. Furniture moved completely away from where it traditionally was.
The dining table and chairs moved to a wall where it has never been and it's far better off there. I even had a light installed above where the table would be, and now is, in anticipation.
Two chairs, the recliner and the platform rocker are at rest against the back drop of a huge window now. That was wasted space for a long time till I finally had the treadmill removed to this room where I am now.
On Friday there will be a new $$$$ wall unit delivered and set up where the TV and etc will be and actually is right now till the new unit comes. I have invited my youngest to supper and hopefully he will re-hook up the TV etc. I am bribing him with dinner. I have to spend the money but the last thing I am going to do is get a new larger and better TV. When I bought this We*tin*ho*se I had NO idea Consumer Report rated it like..below bottom. So I a stuck with one that really is a bad one. And I want a larger than this older 32 incher anyway. I wish I knew someone who wants it.
I haven't found another furbaby yet. Haven't looked very hard either. I need a break after all she and I went through and this gives me a chance to do a bit of traveling too. There will be another furbaby though. I'll have to cat proof the house again. Admiral was so sedate and dignified for years I could pretty much leave things out on the dressers..not worry about her leaping onto things better left un-leapt upon. I was finally able to take the sheets off the furniture and tables (fur and prints) and the last 6 years have been reasonably print free. :-)) She just slept in all of the chairs and in the beds. I know more than once she had a party after I left for work and the party goers were invited in by her and some were thugs! The water bowl was overturned and dragged out to the middle of the wooden kitchen floor. Water sitting there warped the boards. My dresser looked like a bomb site with my jewerly and hair ornaments played with and worn no doubt till the magic hour struck and all her thuggette friends went home and I was faced with the clean up after a 13 hrs midnight shift.
This is a watercolor done of me when I was 14 years old.
Meanwhile, checking in. xox
