One of them was a 100 year old farmhouse, with broken cabinets, stained carpets, a ceiling that was falling down and at one point...no running water. I decorated that little dump with everything I had in me. I tried so hard to make it pretty....
Since our white leather couch was destroyed by Victoria the Mouse...I had to rearrange the existing furniture and realized that I haven't *decorated* in several years. Once the kids were old enough to break stuff...it all went into storage or was slowly eliminated in one of my fits of decluttering.
I recently assigned our unused dining room as the kids playroom and relocated most of the toys there.
Today I relocated ALL of the toys there, took back my family room and attempted to decorate with items from other parts of the house. I still feel like it needs some work and I want to get some throw pillows.
What do you think?
Calvin hates that STAR....he thinks only people that live in Texas should have them. I really love it.
That reminds me...Calvin is on twitter now. I finally convinced him that if he wants to be a successful iPad developer then he is going to have to embrace social media and learn to tweet. This might also be a good time to tell you that his name isn't really Calvin. It's Keith. He wanted an alias to protect his identity while working on the super special space program...but that's dead in the water so I'm allowed to use his real name now. Introducing...Mr Connie.
I made this picture for his twitter avatar but he won't use.
Dear Jen Locke,
Yes. Please jump on twitter and follow me. I tend to chat over there a bit more than Facebook although NOW I won't be able to talk sh!t about
CalvinKeith anymore so that's going to cut out about 20% of my tweets. And I won't be able to announce that I'm having a glass of wine at 4pm on a Tuesday. Oh wait...Keith hasn't figured out how to follow me back yet....
If you need me in the next few days...I'll be in the Panic Room reading magazines, eating jello and hopped up on Vicodin.
