you can't pay rent with velveeta cheese

I think yesterday Aslan and I made a lot of progress. The bathroom is completely done, the living room is too and the kitchen just about is completely done. The front room and small room was finished last week so that only leaves the bedroom.

I hate cleaning the bedroom because it's cut off from the rest of the rooms so I can't really hear the tv very well. I like doing it better when Alex is home because then he keeps me company.


Well I just hung up the curtains here in the living room. I finished them last night while Alex and I were watching Family Guy. They look good. They're a gauzy kind of fabric that blocks out people from seeing in but lets in light still.

I have judge Alex on and he just said to some woman "You can't pay rent with velveeta cheese" ... I guess the woman was trying to pay rent with food items instead of money? Which reminds me we still owe rent for May!! It was due on the 1st. Oops.

I only have to make curtains for 1 more room... and that's the small room. I don't think I'll get to that before the housewarming. I'm guessing the windows are about the same measurements as these ones that are the living room. They might be a little bit shorter though. There is a radiator in front of one, the top of which is in line with the base of the window... so

Gosh I started this entry an hour ago and all I've done is hang up curtains and clean out and organize the cabinets in the Butler's Pantry. Slow day. I'm meeting my friend Angela around 3pm at Lowe's to look at a patio set. Which means I should probably measure the patio before going to Lowe's so I can also look at carpeting. Maybe I'll just get a large rug. Because the problem with getting new carpeting is that I have to figure out some way to attach it... and I'd probably have to rip up the old carpet, which is like tarred to the floor.

I just applied for Alex to this library assistant position. It's fulltime and would be an improvement in terms of stress level of the job he has now. Actually, anything would be an improvement.

Hmm.. well let me go look at my latest housewarming update email to see what all I've go to do today.

1. Go to Lowe's and look at the patio furniture
2. Hang up the framed aisle runner thing
3. Finish the bedroom
4. Go to Card & Party for plates, napkins, cups, tablecloth and table skirt
5. Bring up table and chairs from Cornerstone
6. Go to Crabtree & Evelyn for dish soap and decorative soaps
7. Get frames for pictures (6 frames total)
8. Bring white shelf to parent's house for Emily's room
9. Print the tour guides (made those Tuesday night)

So I'll have to go out to Crabtree & Evelyn, Lowe's, some framing store... and the party place. I have to figure out where to get frames at. I might wait to do that until after Lowe's so then I can see where I'm at and what the closest place is. I found some more things I'd like to frame while I was cleaning out the butler's pantry. Oh that reminds me I want to send all the honeymoon pics to walgreens to get them printed so I can have those out too along with the wedding pictures I have so far.

I'll go do that in a second.

Okay so it's 1:05pm right now. I have to meet Angela at 3pm. I'm guessing I'll probably be done with her at around 4:00pm. Then I'll have to go to Crabtree & Evelyn and get frames. Ooooor I could leave now and go to Card & Party... oh but wait I forgot I told Alicia we would do that during our So Sweet meeting time. So that means I won't be going to Card & Party until 7pm or so.

Well, if I left at 1:30 and went to Crabtree & Evelyn then I'd get there around 1:45 ... that would give me an hour to pick out soaps and stuff and also to go get frames. Then I could go to Lowe's, pick out the furniture, and afterwards get any other frames I need still. Then go home and work on the bedroom...then go meet Alicia. Come back after that and finish up on the bedroom. Maybe we could meet at Card & Party a little earlier than 7pm... like 6:30 or something like that.

I would also like to get some pull back things for the curtains. Two I guess. I don't need any in the front room. I just need some for the living room and the bedroom. I had this stupid little blue one...which I should just sell on eBay because it's an old Anthro item. It's probably the first thing I bought there. I bought 2 actually.

Let's see... so I need to get ready now. I also need to call my mom because she said she may want to come with me to Crabtree & Evelyn...
