Crone and Bear It’s newest blog post reminded me that I am far from ever being a house decorator.

You can tell that the bedroom belongs to someone who isn’t in her 30’s. There are stuffed animals everywhere (okay, not everywhere. Several on the desk, on a nightstand, and on a shelf), mismatched curtains, a HUGE Longhorns above to bed like a headboard, and books everywhere. CDs are strewn about and none of the covers match. In fact, I have a black/beige blanket while Twin has a designer-looking blanket. Nothing seems to match and even the UT stuff I have accumulated are in different places. Even some of the curtains are hanging at different lengths.

Yea, I am 100% sure I am not a decorator.

I would watch HGTV for those home decorating shows and feel inspired. I would look around the bedroom and think “Oh yea, if we move this over here, it would look better!”. I would move the item but would be faced with another dilemma- where to put the item that was just replaced with something else. Because we don’t have storage or a big house for that matter, we have boxes stacked in the bedroom. It looks like we could be moving! So naturally, if I can’t find an item that was replaced for something else, it goes into a box. Yes, the boxes are labeled. Told you it looked like we’re moving.

Luckily, after Valentine’s Day, I finally put my prized Nutcracker away until the Holidays. But another problem goes along with that. What the hell do I put in there for Spring? I have cats so plants are out of the question. I have a dog so indoor trees are out of the question. I don’t even have a stuffed bunny. Sad, I know. I would love to paint the bedroom a nice rich dark color but where to put the pets while we paint is a problem. Princess and Patches don’t exactly get along. We’re not sure why. Maybe I’ll just buy yards and yards of fabric and use it as wallpaper. Safe, easy, efficient, and reuseable. Yea, fabric as wall paper. Brilliant idea!

It’s official… August 2, 2008

“E” has become an official member of this family… somewhat. Yesterday, he called rather early (I was still asleep) so he could come over for the day. So after picking him up and bringing him home, Mom got up off the couch and gave him a hug. Also, during the day she called him her “son”. All I said was “Awww” but deep inside, I wanted to cry.

For the first time ever since I’ve started dating, this would make him the first to break all barriers between my family and become a part of our clan. Mom and sis said that whenever we move (which might be a year or 2 from now) that he could come live with us. I even told him that yesterday morning when we were driving back to the house. His face lit up and he said “Do we get our own room?”. Laughing, I said “I sure hope so! It would be so weird living down the hall from my boyfriend.”. Though I know it won’t happen, it’s fun to hope for it.

As far as marriage, I’m not totally sure. He said he wanted to be with someone for a long time before he considers it because he wants to get to know the person through and through. I have to say, I agree. In one of my past relationships, we got engaged too soon and when he broke up with me, it was really hard. You don’t want to jump in to soon only to find out that they are not who they are when you’re not with them. But I think that he will be a part of this family until the end of time.
