I sure hope 2008 is starting out well for all of you...it's been crazy-busy around here.
My room is coming along...I had paint chips tacked up before Eric actually left, so I was ready to dash to Lowe's to pick up the Martha color I'd decided on (French Ivory with Teacup trim!) and cleaning and painting commenced.
I'm positively GIDDY over having a room of my own...I still need to figure out just where to store all my crap and I really REALLY want to be rid of all plastic bins--at least in that room. I can't see a way to live without plastic storage bins, but I feel the need to try.
I have yet to hang any pictures, etc...still many things to figure out. I'll be keeping you posted.
Of course being at this end of the hall, I have a new neighbor, and that would be Nick. He's a rather noisy neighbor at times, but having a new room AND peace and quiet would probably be too big a shock to my system. He visits periodically, and has already managed to spill soda on the carpet. One of his friends was over last night and has declared that my new room "smells happy", so I guess I'm on the right track.
I had a wonderful treat Saturday evening...I was invited to go with Nick and his girlfriend Kari (pictured above playing Rock Band) to the Tech Museum in San Jose to see the Body Worlds 2 exhibit which was the most amazing thing I've seen in years...Photography was not allowed, and I imagine some of you are grateful for that fact! But it was an incredible combination of science and art...with a bit of philosophy thrown in. I'll probably go back--if I can snag another family member to go with me. It was also a kick to be back in downtown San Jose...I grew up in that city and my first real job was downtown, and that was back in the days when downtown SJ was not a very nice place to be. It seemed surreal to be walking the same streets I'd walked as an 18 year old now with MY 18 year old...
Anyway...a fresh start always feels so good, doesn't it...it's time to get working on new projects for 2008!
