because I came home from work and moved furniture and cleaned for a couple of hours. I got my weight lifting in, thankyouverymuch. Tomorrow I really will go to the gym, but it poured tonight and I just didn't feel like going out in the rain. I'm shifting the too much stuff in my bedroom into the adjacent room formerly known as the Future Studio. Right now it would be better as the bedroom annex, and I can make it look attractive while making the real bedroom less crowded and easier to paint. So I moved two bookcases, many books, and a tall chest of drawers, and cleaned the floors and dusted, and that was just the first stage. I will enlist girl's aid in moving the elliptical machine (still used when the gym visit is impractical) and then I will have the first walls cleared for the start of Painting. I can do it in stages, which is better than not getting it done at all.
I am inspired to redecorate my bedroom - it's so drab, I have always hated the color on the walls, I'm not that crazy about the carpet. in addition to paint I need new nightstands, new lamps, and a general rearranging and decluttering spree. Yes, I'm fixing it up for sale, but I also want an environment I can enjoy NOW. I'd love to replace the carpet, but that's not in the budget at this time. But paint and new bedding and new nightstands are do-able. And lamps. I think I'll shop this weekend. And I'm still thinking of an afghan, but so far all of my ideas have died on the drawing board.
Here's the decency of my employer - and I'm not saying that in a snarky way, I mean they are really decent - we didn't make much profit last quarter, but today even *I* received a wee little quarterly profit-sharing check. It was wee, I could blow it at the mall in an hour or two, and I just may. But I was surprised and touched, because I wasn't even THERE for almost the entire quarter and I did not expect to get anything, as profit-sharing is discretionary. But they still threw me a few bucks, and I see paint, bedding, and maybe lamps in my future. Target has those lovely soft bamboo sheets in a cheery green, and I almost bought them last weekend, but stopped myself because of that haven't had a paycheck since mid-March issue. I will be picking paint and buying sheets this weekend, because that's the kind of wild party girl I am.
