So here’s how things in the townhouse have been since we moved her last April. When we moved in, everything under the sinks, in the closets, & even my tupperware & groceries were organized. Then D fudged it all up, being the man that he is. I reorganized it, he fudged it up again – rinse, lather, repeat.
Being all down about some issues going on in my life right now, I decided to go get my nails done. THEN I found out that my favorite nail salon has closed. Thanks, US Economy. So instead, I went to my favorite store: BIG LOTS. I was really looking for wall decorations, maybe an entertainment center, & a cute Easter wreath.
What I DID find was some new hot pink tupperware (just the lid, not the whole thing – you don’t really think I’d do that to D do you?), some stackable baskets, & some other portioned out tupperware (I have been looking for this ALL OVER, because D loves these old portioned tupperware my Maw Maw had just like them – at). So this morning, my job was simple: organize underneath the bathroom sinks & organize my tupperware cabinet – as well as seperating MY tupperware from MY PARENTS tupperware that D just used to throw under there (lets face it, D is a man & couldn’t tell the difference between Ziplock & Glad if he tried).
Here’s how it all worked out:
While at Big Lots, I also managed to find this cubby hole shelving unit-thingy (for only $99!) that could probably actually hold our television. It has nine (or maybe it was twelve?) cubby holes & a flat surface. Inside the cubby holes, I’m sure our cable box, DVD player, etc. would fit as well as some movies & decorative items.
I’m thinking about buying it, but I need to check with D first & make sure he likes it. Last time I chose something he didn’t like, I heard about it for weeks – even though he knows ZIP about decorating & I hadn’t even bought it yet. He is also the reason that we now have four media-holding piece in our living room – he buys without asking. I also need to make sure the cable box (which is length-wise the biggest piece of electronic equipment we have) will fit into one of the cubby holes.
I am also waiting on my new end tables & coffee tables, which we are getting from my grandmother. They are over 30 years old & don’t have a scratch on them. I believe they were hand carved, & they are just GORGEOUS. They also have deep drawers, which I could use to store some of Donald’s game-station things. I’ll also have another spot to put photos, which I am desperately in need of! Previously to my grandparents moving in with my godmother, I had searched high & low for similar tables with no results. But when she decided to move, she offered me the tables & I was ecstatic. Not only is it something of my grandmother’s that I will treasure forever (seriously – they have survived thirty years of baby spit up & chewing, as well as children knocking into them.), but it was exactly what I was looking for in terms of living room furniture!
I think this is the most I’ve written here in a long time. Now it’s time for me to go return that tupperware & get some pretty nails! (:
