I like to decorate homes. Maybe I missed my calling in life because I did so badly at math in high school, but I think I would make a pretty swanky interior designer. Since I get to move in LESS THAN A MONTH (HOLY CRAP!), I thought it was time that I re-evaluate our current décor.
I think the décor of our apartment currently fits more with the type of house that it is—old. I’ve been thinking that when I finally move that I’d like to make some upgrades in our furniture. I’m pretty much looking at a serious overhaul of a lot of our stuff—all within a few thousand dollar budget, of course.
I’m actually looking at buying a new TV, which is one purchase I’ve never made before! I’m looking forward to a nice, clear picture on the screen instead of the slightly blue-tinged right-hand corner of the screen that I have now. The TV that we have also emits this really awful, high-pitched noise that gets louder whenever something bright or white comes on screen. Needless to say I don’t enjoy watching shows where there’s a lot of snow involved.
Anyhow, before I go I am going to get a lovely LCD TV for Steve and I to watch. I guess it’s my last hurrah from going from a job that pays a LOT to one that pays enough to get by.
I also made the grand purchase of a sofa yesterday! Woo! I can’t wait to sit on it. Oh man. Anyhow, I bought it from the EQ3 in town so that I can have it made, and then have someone deliver it to Vancouver so that I save myself the PST! Don’t ask me why I am going so insane over saving around $14, just let me think I am really saving a whole lot of money. Money for glorious purchases like potato chips and slurpees and tuna subs and all the things I am currently craving.
Seriously, tuna? What’s up with me?! I go on these crazy tuna binges for weeks at a time, and then I don’t eat another tuna sub for two months! Perhaps the fish eater in me is getting prepared to chow down on sea life?
Anyhow, when I move I will be leaving with a shitload of blankets, the dogs, a TV, and some clothes. Yikes! I plan to make the whole apartment into a blanket fort for Steve’s arrival. That, or at least some kind of blanket nest ala Big Bird.
Man, I’m getting a headache just thinking of the move! EEEEEK!
