I May Not Feel Rested, But BOY Do I Feel Productive

Last night I tried a sleep aid again.  I think Husbandman and I need to have a rule that if I take one he has to make sure I go STRAIGHT to bed.  Otherwise I stay up until 4 am making random lists. Last time I made a playlist and sent people nonsense text messages.  This time I made all sorts of grocery/shopping lists AND a complete home and yard remodel. The weird thing is that my home/yard remodel designs from last night are plausible and actually kind of awesome.  Also they were really organized. Like an OCD person made the lists.  The had titles and even spacing and were so not me.  I bet it was those darn elves again.  You know how they are, always doing peoples jobs and showing them up in the process (please tell me I'm not the only one who loved the Elves and the Shoemaker book as a child).

For those of you who know me well you know I hate nothing more than doing decorative type stuff. We've lived in our house for close to 9 months now and I still have yet to hang a single thing up on my wall or any cutesy homey displays of anything.  Everything kind of just gets put where it falls.  I have no themes, no patterns. I'm not even at college housing level here. It's not that I don't have plenty of things to hang I just don't get into design. I've tried to convince quite a few people to do it for me.  But for once I'm actually kind of excited about decorating my house.  Though you probably shouldn't be too surprised if I call you up on the phone and try to get you to come "help".


  1. You know what would brighten up your house? One of those giant spools for a coffee table. Or do what we did in that Orem apartment and use a van seat as a sofa! Make that place cozy in no time.

  2. What is working for me currently is propping everything that needs to be hung up against the wall like an art museum gift shop. I just flip through when I want to take a look.
