Here is the new bed! I fell asleep last night while petting the metalwork on the headboard. I've never had a whole set of matching bedroom furniture before. I love it! It sure dominates the room though. But I guess bedrooms are for sleeping in. We got the bedspread awhile back and it turned out to match the bedframe quite nicely. My excuse had been that I was waiting to get a new bedroom suite before decorating but now I don't have any excuse and must decorate the room.

You never realize how much crap you've accumulated until you start emptying drawers. I threw out 2 big sacks of stuff that was just not needed while getting ready to move my clothes into the new furniture. And now that we have the new stuff moved in, I don't want to mess it up and am having a hard time finding places for the knick-knacks that I have. It just doesn't seem right to clutter up the dresser tops just yet with stuff. The house is such a wreck with the old furniture still in it that I can't hardly concentrate to put everything back in it's place.

And what is even more disheartening is the quantity of stuff that I found that I can't wear anymore. I think I've hit rock bottom as far as my weight goes. Once I lose 60 pounds, I'll have a whole new wardrobe already rat-holed away in my new drawers. Sweety has been commissioned to be my chef. Grilled chicken breasts and salad are going to become my good friends. Whenever I need motivation, I'm going to try to put on some of those small jeans that are mocking me from the dresser.

The boys wanted to go swimming a couple of days ago and we told them to go for it. I really didn't think that they would. They both just bailed off in there. I was glad that they didn't have heart attacks when they hit the water.

Have you ever just had a hard time getting things typed up? I'll think I have an idea to post something and then my mind goes blank when I get to the computer.

I haven't been on the computer too much the last couple of days. Have just been looking at all the disarray in the house and wondering where to start on it. Right now I'm waiting in line to pick BigBrother up from school and I'll just paste this into trusty Blogger later. If all goes well.

I normally think of all these genius things to blog about and then I get infront of the computer and my mind completely erases all the genius things, so I just blog about crap.

If you didn't say that it was cold when the picture was taken, I'd have no idea. The boys look relaxed - their lips aren't even slightly blue!

I sure understand the dilemma of cleaning out old clothes and such....I need to do that in such a desperate way...OY!
And, can Sweety come cook Chicken and Salad for me, too? I so need to drop off some weight....

The boys look wonderful in your pool---cold though it may be, one wouldn't know from this picture!

That bed looks huge. The other pictures did not do it justice. It must be wonderful for sleep, and other things, ;)

BTW: Cold water is all relative, you cold ice skate on our pool right now.

I think your new bed set looks nice, Chickie.

Chickie said...

Bekah - I'm having a hard time even coming up with crap. I need a blogging laxative.

Jeni - Thank you! I'm sorry about your envy though.

I'm envious that you're moving into a new place where no EW's have lived!

Joey Polanski - Hey, I didn't know you were the Richard Simmons of the blogosphere. Good idea. I should probably use the treadmill that's gathering dust.

OOLOTH - I'll bet you have all sorts of neat stuff to sort through!

I'll send Sweety your way for some cooking. Or you could come stay with me for awhile. We could make it a weight-loss camp!

Midwestern City Boy - The bed has worked out quite nicely for everything :)

The water was too cold for me to leave my feet in. I don't know how the boys stood it.

JediMacFan - Thank you!

I once went swimming in a pool that was I think about 42* if I remember right... for a ham sandwich.

I swam to one end of the pool, and realized I could not feel my limbs... swimming back was hard!

Chickie said...

Debra - A ham sandwich? I hope it was good!
