so here i am, sitting in my new place, posting to livejournal.|
this loft is insane. it's a disaster zone right now, but slowly but surely it's coming together. i painted the master bedroom a nice grey with very slight purple undertones. the closet didn't have any rods in it so i installed three rods and two shelves. i put up a shelf, shower curtain, mirror and medicine cabinet in the bathroom. replaced the outlet covers in the bedroom. put up some shelves in the pantry. and the list goes on and on. the thing that was the most harrowing was a solution for my eight inches of drawer space in the kitchen. i went to ikea and got a freestanding kitchen island thing. they are discontinuing it and i was able to get the last one in the store that wasn't a floor model. and got it for a fraction of the original price because they secretly started the after christmas sale on the day before christmas eve. woohoo! i now have 8 more drawers in my kitchen and five more feet of counterspace. glorious counterspace.
christmas was pretty bittersweet for me this year. because of the car accident i wasn't able to drive down to san diego to see my parents which really bummed me out. on the bright side it meant that i got to spend my first christmas with joshua actually with him. we decided that we weren't going to exchange presents this year because of how tight money is with the new loft, so instead we each got each other a nice card and wrote sweet letters to each other. the one he gave me totally made me cry.
in other news, simian needed a new radiator, headlights, bumper, air conditioning system, hood, fenders, and grill amongst other parts. but i am supposed to get him back on monday or tuesday! hooray! which means on friday i am going to drive down to see my mom and dad for the weekend. we are going to celebrate christmas while i am down there which i am pretty excited about.
that's pretty much all that's been going on in my world.
tomorrow i have to go scrub the old studio from top to bottom for the walkthrough on monday. yeesh.
