to err is human

Okay well here I am, sitting in the living room, checking in to see what all I've gotten done for my task list for today. I guess I've gotten a decent amount done.

I got up at 11:00 because I didn't get to sleep until 4:30 or something crazy like that.. So I've had at least 7 hours of sleep or a little less, which isn't bad. I should be good for the rest of today, although sitting here now on the couch I could fall asleep again.

I had (am still sorta drinking) an instant breakfast this morning and that seems to have done well to get me going. I put up the toilet paper roller thing in the bathroom, hung up 2 pictures (overtop where the old towel rack used to be since I don't think there will be time to paint that wall before the housewarming)... finished scraping the little decals off the other mirror, painted the second shelf bracket for the litter holder...

I'm waiting for the bracket to dry. When that dries I will go hang those up and then I'll start cleaning the bathroom. In the meantime I guess I"ll finish up the kitchen. There isn't a whole lot to do in there anymore. Mostly I have to finish arranging the decorative stuff. I rearranged all the countertops yesterday and cleaned too so I'm glad that's done. I'll need to clean all the floors on Friday night or Saturday morning. I guess in the meantime I'll just swiffer.

Today when I go to Lowe's I want to look at cabinet knobs for the bathroom, and then screws for some in the kitchen. I put up all the new cabinet/drawer knobs yesterday that I could in the kitchen, except for 5. They didn't have a screw that would work. I may have to custom cut one. For that bathroom, I had gotten some from Ikea, but the screws they came with worked only for the cabinets, not for the drawers. Those stupid drawers are thick and so the screws only stick out like as far as the tip of my finger so there is nothing to screw onto for the knob.

The only other thing I'll have to do in the bathroom after I've hung up the brackets for the litter box is to get a clock for the strip of wall where I used to have these little porcelain flower things hanging. Oh, and the 2 other pictures. I'm going to ask Alex which wall he thinks they should go on.

I forgot to ask Michael about that tin stuff... it's fake tin tiles (made of plastic instead of aluminum or tin). I wanted to make them the backsplash for above the sink and the stove. There isn't time to do that anymore... because I would need to cover switchplates and also figure out some kind of thing that would divide the tin from the wall. Also, now that I think about it, it might look stupid. I'd have to buy some and look though.

Alex and I went to Wal*Mart yesterday after we left my parent's house. We spend like $120.00something but that's okay. It was things we needed. We got Aslan a new bag since he peed in his other one and ruined it (plus it was just falling apart anyway). We got Caspian a little cat hideaway that he isn't even using and I suspect he might have already peed in.

Other stuff was a tablecloth (made of lace) for the kitchen... we have a glass table in there and sometimes I think it needs something covering it.

Then I got stuff to make a wreath. Tonight I'll make the wreath when we're at my parent's house because I'll need to borrow my mom's hot glue gun. I am very excited about this wreath... the base is like woven twigs or something, and then I got sprigs of fake lavender. It's going to be really pretty.

Hmm what else... oh we got some fake plants for this umbrella basket that was a wedding present. The basket had previously been holding up my grandpa's memorial plant, but now that plant's outside and I didn't want this basket to be outside too. The plants need something to be propped up on though because they look kind of silly right now. Also, I think I might need more of them. I didn't realize, when I was picking out the plants, just how wide the opening of the basket is.

The other thing we got was a poster and a frame for our media room. Alex picked it out.. it's a Phoenix rising from its ashes.

Oh, we got paint for the brackets too...duh.

Today when Aslan and I go out shopping we need to focus on 3 things:
1. Getting a nice clock for the bathroom (I looked online at Target and found some nice ones...but Aslan always gets kicked out of Target so I don't know if that will work to go there)
2. Getting fabric to cover the cushions on the kitchen chairs (I figured out how to take the cushions off to recover them)
3. Getting the patio set from Lowe's and also maybe some carpet if I can figure that out

I hate spending money lately. I have no idea how much any of this food stuff is going to be and it just makes me sick to my stomach on how much money it could be. I have this tendency to think that I shouldn't hold out any stops when it comes to entertaining...but I always regret that later. Especially since all 3 of my credit cards have a little bit over $1,000 on them. I need to pay down one so that I can give it to my mom when she picks up some of the food for me on Friday.

Okay well I'm going to work on the kitchen for a little bit, then finish up the bathroom and then I guess it will be errand time. Fun!!!!!!!

I take my dog everywhere!

But at Target we've been asked to leave twice. I always reply to them with the question "why is Paris Hilton or Nicole Ritchie allowed to bring their small dogs into your store but I'm not?" But they just won't give me a straight answer!
