Errands, and Being a Grownup

in Becoming Myself

This weekend was a whirlwind of getting stuff done, much of which was focused on getting stuff ready for my office area. I ended up getting a desk at IKEA, and though it may drive me bonkers that my measurements didn’t take into account the base boards so it peeks around the wall by 1/2 an inch (seriously, I can’t believe I forgot about that, I’m pretty happy with it. I need to get a chair still, but the desk is put together and in its new home, and wow this is starting to feel more real.

We ended up spend all of Saturday running errands, and then most of Sunday putting things together/cleaning/rearranging/etc. I feel nice and accomplished, and the house looks nice, and look, I have clean clothes for the week!, but I do also kiiinnnnddddaaa wish that I had tomorrow off to kind of recuperate. I mean, not really, because I have a ton to do in the next 5 days at work to wrap everything up and feel pretty sure I’m going to need every possible moment, but still. I sometimes miss the weekends where I slept until noon, and accomplished nothing of substance beyond making myself food.

In the midst of all the office making, it’s made me really, REALLY want to redecorate the house–or, more accurately, just decorate. Right now we have Lego chic going on, with a splash of too-cheap-to-buy-nice-things style, and I’m tired of it. We do have plans to repaint the dining room, because I think the green will drive me nuts sitting in it all day long, and then I want to repaint the living room, get a new rug, put the rug from the living room in the dining room, clean up the bookshelves, get rid of the junk/organize J’s toys (I’ve made peace with the fact that J is going to have toys and stuff in the living room. I haven’t made peace with them being all over the floor and every flat surface), and put some new pictures up on the walls. That’s just what I want to START with. But for now, we’re going to limit my grand plans to painting the dining room, and see where we go from there.

I dunno guys, this all sounds like being a grown up or something.

Sounds exciting. Beware of the snowball effect of decorating!!
