So I know some of you are like “when are you doing a before and after of your house?” Well I am going to, but I can’t yet. I want my family to see it in person before I get a post up…because at least some of them (thanks mommy!) read my blog lol. Not to worry, they’ll be up this weekend. So keep it together, it’s coming!
I haven’t had a lot to blog about, we have moved up stairs now, there are only 2 rooms that need painting now, we’ve even had a house guest! Our friend that lives in Missouri drives down to spend time with his mom in Florida a few times a year and he has a few days over at our house back and forth. It’s a long drive, I don’t blame him. Last Saturday was the first day that we actually had time to sit and watch tv, and it was marvelous. We got a new tv and it’s got a 240 or something refresh rate (FYI: Average refresh rate is 120), so everything looks like The Matrix.
Our house looks like we’re a couple of scrooges, we don’t have a tree or anything up! Sadly, our christmas tree didn’t make it through the move, so all we have are our ornaments and stockings, and we didn’t want to half-heartedly decorate for Christmas. About half of the neighbors in our new neighborhood have lights up, and the ones that don’t you can at least see their lit trees in their windows. I think they’ll cut us some slack, I mean we JUST got in there!
The only real news that I have is that my sewing table did make it up stairs and into my sewing room, and all my things are in there, but I haven’t been able to sew yet! I’m hesitant to completely unpack because I haven’t painted in there yet (yes, the pepto lives) but I may try to get a start on that today. We’ll see. 🙂 My sewing machine is in it’s spot in the table, which, now I have to actually turn off my machine! Before it was on one of those plugs that cut off with the switch; I think I’ll be able to manage. I’m just so happy there is no bed in site in my sewing room.
Jumping from one subject to another, I would like everyone to have a very happy and safe holiday, for whatever your family is celebrating. Don’t burn the potato latkes, don’t wear too ugly of a sweater, be easy on the airing of grievances, keep baby Jesus safely away from little kids and dogs who may try to chew or eat him! Also, I would like everyone to keep me in your thoughts Saturday because I’m making a Christmas lunch/dinner for the first time myself and I’m not freaking out yet, but I am a little nervous the closer it gets.
Until next time! Happy sewing everyone!
