Well, it's coming together. Except for needing a bunch of furniture, you can see that the living room has begun with some bookcases. Funny story: My son's girlfriend went out to the truck to unload more stuff while I was staying in the apartment for the cable guy. She comes in carrying that statue atop the bookshelf on the left. At the same time, the Jamaican cable guy comes in and I go, "oh my dark angel!" She turns bright red and I have no idea why. I'm just happy my statue is here. I love that thing! Later, she tells me, "Sharon, I thought you were talking about the cable guy and I thought `I can't believe you said that." It's even funnier cause I said, "Oh, I need to put him in the sink, his feet are dirty."
Imagine too that there will be a big screen over the fireplace.
So, I have a bar counter I don't intend to use as one because it would take space from the big sofa. So, I stuffed my buffet under it, candles and all seashells and geods and stones. I will be able to store things inside it and it's just a perfect set up (imagine that I don't have all the shit on the counter above it--still moving in, ya know). Then, the spare bedroom is my home office since I work from home. I can look out the window at the courtyard and trees and such. Very nice! I will feel less like the last person on earth as I did in my old home office where I stared at a wall in a back bedroom.
So far, so good. No moments of angst or sadness. Somehow ya'all have given me the feeling I can do this, just like I can handle my job, just like I can handle writing and anything else I do. I always give everything 110%, so I will master this experience, as well. It's actually pretty awesome to play creepy music when I want to and just hang out and read uninterrupted. I have to admit, I seriously need blackout blinds. I woke up at sunrise. I am not good with light in the bedroom. I'm like a fucking rooster.
Thanks for all being so sweet. I hope to do some video soon and put it up here.
