Well, I hope that everyone had a Happy New Year. I haven't blogged in so long I almost forgot how. I have seen on several blogs that a lot of people have been sick you can include me in the group. This is actually the first day in about a week I have felt somewhat like my old self. It started Christmas with the sniffles and I was really tired. Then it turned into a full blown nasty cold. I couldn't sleep for coughing. I still have the cough and my voice will come and go but other than that I feel OK. I'm just happy to be blogging.
My living room seems so much larger with the tree and decorations down. Although I miss the lights I also like having things back to somewhat normal. My living room is so long. We have a fireplace that takes up most of the wall and the other wall has two doorways. One to enter the kitchen and the other to enter from the foyer. Then on the other walls are windows. It's a little difficult to arrange because of the monster TV. I think I did OK considering. My biggest dilemma is the eight foot mantel. I would love for someone to come decorate it for me. I have changed it a million times and I don't think I have ever liked it.
I have tried pictures, baskets, and nothing seems to make me happy. Everyone always comments on how much they like the fireplace but I think it's missing that WOW factor.
Abby thinks she is a cat she likes to sit on the back of the chair and watch out the window.
Here is the monster TV not very primitive is it? It's my husbands pride and joy. So what's a girl to do. He let's me decorate like I want and I work around his TV. I have pictures of my children to hang on the blank walls just haven't gotten around to it. I had to move things around to make room for Christmas. Well, if you have any mantel ideas I am open but don't forget I'm still unemployed and my decorating is down to a real tight budget.
