Is it wrong that I’m already counting down to October? People, I am so excited by this October’s thingy. I’m hoping we can finish getting the living room back together this weekend. At least as much as possible until we can make some purchases. I think I’m going to let my parents be on the lookout for another glider but meanwhile, I’m going to get a couple of cheap Ikea chairs and use those. Honestly, no wonder people love Ikea. I couldn’t find a chair in the whole of the internet that had arms for around a hundred bucks other than Ikea.
The Butcher’s all “Go thrift store shopping.”
Here’s the deal, Earth. I hate shopping. I just want chairs to magically arrive. I’m sure shopping is more fun when money isn’t a concern. I know it’d be a lot easier if I could just run out and buy a $300 rocking chair.
We also need to see if the curtains can actually go back up or if we’re going to have to replace the curtain rod, which the Butcher assures me is fine, and yet, no matter how many times he puts it in place, still ends up careening out over the couch. And we’re going to need lampshades.
So, basically, even though I was like “We’ll be able to do so many rooms!” I have revised down my goals to 1. Getting the living room back in useable shape. 2. Get the den ceiling done before it falls on its own. 3. De-jungle-fy the yard. 5. Read my books. 6. Write another short story. 7. Revise the story I hate, maybe see if E. will read it. 8. Revise Sue. and I think that should take me through to the end of October.
Argh! Just argh. Well, the Sue revisions will take longer than that, but I’ve got to get started.
Anyway, October sneaks closer.
