my house looks naked

April 30th, 2011 at 07:41 pm

I've been moving stuff out of the upstairs rooms in preparation for the new carpet. It looks naked up there. I had to take out the rugs and take down all the pictures on the wall. I have moved several of the smaller pieces of furniture into another room. Very bare - reminds me of moving. It looks forlorn instead of warm Smile

Parents and I went to Rosie's last night. Dad loves their prime rib special on Fridays. However last night it wasn't very good. The meat was raw, he asked for medium rare. He took half home to cook and eat today. My meal wasn't that good either. I only ate a couple bites of the potatoes - they had a weird taste. And the chicken tenders weren't very tender. Oh well, usually they are so good. Maybe they got a new cook or something. Spent $10.15

Between the carpet and property taxes last month I spent 3 times what I normally do in a month. Over $5K. $3900 was carpet and taxes. I generally spent $1200 - 1500 a month. I only ate out 5 times, which is pretty low for me, my groceries went up because of that and the costly salmon purchase.

I finished reading the library book Too Hot to Hold by Stephanie Tyler. Romance - pretty good.

    Empty rooms always look bigger, too. Enjoy the new carpet!!

    Do you move things around to make the room look different? I do that -- far cheaper than buying new.

    Hope you enjoy your new carpet!

    nope, once things are in place they are there forever. Part of it is because I have so many bookcases and only so many walls. The rest is because I spend a lot of time up front deciding how the room will be used and the best place to put things and then I like how it is from then on.
