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.
